Gattaca



This film has been famous not only for the debate that it pushes, but also for its sartorial ethic.



It offers a vision of hope for the future, of the triumph of individual endeavor.



Now when a person has to continually negotiate with the limits of the self, he doesn't really have much time for frippery.



This vision of the future includes sharp suits, clean grooming, and the lack of any unnecessary details.



The highest standards demand an unrelenting drive and unforgiving trouser and cuff lengths.
