Today it’s about the tracksuit from the movie The Gentlemen. Apologies in advance to all loyal readers who are likely to wonder why I am writing about a tracksuit, although otherwise this page is always about pocket squares.
Why a tracksuit?
As a brief explanation, I was watching the new movie The Gentleman in cinema yesterday. A really great film and recommended for every elegant gentleman, especially because of the great outfits in the English style. But that’s not supposed to be a film review 😀 . I particularly noticed the boxer’s boxing suit from the boxing club. So I really wanted to know which brand this suit is from so that I could buy one too.
After my search started, I quickly found out that there were no good results for my search. Nobody wants to tell us where these sports suits come from. That’s why I did research in forums at night and rummaged through the online mail order companies in search of the plaid tracksuit. With my research I want to help you now.
What was the result of my research?
Now I have good news and bad news for you. The bad news is that, according to an interview with The Gentleman costume designer Michael Wilkinson, the jogging suit for the boxers is custom-made and there is no brand under which such a casual sports suit is sold. However, there is also good news.
Since I couldn’t accept the result, I looked for an alternative jogging suit that was similar to the tracksuit in the film. There are some tracksuits that come very close to those from the film.
The tracksuits in the film
First about the jogging suits in the film. The coach is played by Colin Farrell. He portrays a forgiving mentor of a group of guys who feel involved in the film’s drama. Colin Farrell and his crew don’t wear ordinary tracksuits. These are high-end suits.
Wilkinson says in an interview that the sports clothes are based on classic English suit fabrics, which they then enlarged, made more lively and printed on a modern quilted technical fabric. They wanted to show in the film how different groups of people can interpret this classic “English”. In this case, a more modern, elegant update for street clothing and casual sportswear.
In the film, the tracksuit is then combined with a polo shirt underneath, making it extremely elegant.
I want to make the tracksuit
I want to make the tracksuit from the film with highest quality. In a discussion with a tailor we have chosen an interesting fabric made of merino wool. We are still looking for suitable production facilities.
Stay up to date.
Let’s go ahead to the sports suits you can buy: Divided by country
This men’s jogging suit really comes very close to those from the film. It has the same style as bomber jackets and the rubbers are also provided with horizontal stripes. The stripe on the arm can also be found again. The suit also has the plaid pattern and not a simple buffalo pattern. Unfortunately, the jogging suit is not quilted. However, I couldn’t find any quilted jogging suits.
This sports suit is the light version. It also comes very close to those from the film. A style similar to previous sports suit. Here too the rubbers and stripes on the arm are like in the film. The suit also has the plaid pattern. Unfortunately this sports suit is not quilted either because I could not find any quilted sports suits.
Finally there is this tracksuit. Like the top two suits, it also comes very close to those from the film. This tracksuit also has a similar style and the rubbers are like in the film. However, the stripes on the arm are missing in this tracksuit. The suit also has the plaid pattern. Unfortunately, this tracksuit is not quilted either because I could not find any quilted tracksuits.
My suit has already been ordered and will be shipped. I’m really curious how the tracksuit will fit. Feel free to write me a message from your experiences.
The sports suit alone is probably not enough, so here are a few more items of clothing that can be combined perfectly and look like in the movie The Gentlemen .
If what you wear under your tracksuit also looks elegant, then you’ve done everything right. Not much can go wrong with a white polo shirt. If you want to venture a little more like Colin Farrell, you can opt for a brown polo shirt.
For a harmonious outfit, the footwear should also match the look. These Adidas Sneakers are great for the look with a jogging suit.
If you are from Germany, Louis Wolter has some good information about the tracksuit, too.
Incidentally, the song that runs in the scene with the boxers is called Boxes Of Bush. I think the song is pretty cool. The music fits very well into the mood of the film. However, I have to admit that the song sounded better in the cinema than on my system 😀 .
The jogging suits for the boxers is custom-made and there is no brand under which such a casual sports suit is sold. But there are some on the Internet that come very close to them.
