Men of Style: Detective Murakami of Stray Dog

Detective Murakami in Stray Dog (Nora inu) doesn't have multiple wardrobe changes, only two looks. Set in sweltering heat, Murakami wears mainly the same outfit through out the film: a light colored linen suit, rep tie, and a hat (from a panama to a newsboy cap).

The only deviation from Murakami's pulled together appearance is his undercover disguise of a down-trodden ex-soldier.

"Check the pistol dealers."
Murakami: "Where are they?"

"I've heard if you wander the alleys downtown looking desperate,
the scouts will come and tug at your sleeves."


  1. i long to see men dressed this way now. suits, panama hats in warm climates/wool fedoras in cooler locales: it's all good, and totally timeless.

    your blog is so refreshing, -h. i think you're one of a kind! style inspiration comes from everywhere, and your blog is a continual reminder.


  2. Wait, is this one a Kurosawa film???

  3. So chic and dapper! Love your series of stylish men from flims.

  4. -h, you kill me! I love your posts!!

    I think it's so true, when one starts getting a uniform, provided they get it right.. that's a true style icon.

    Besides, I love a man in a uniform! ; )

    finally going thru the pictures from Boca, would you believe it! Hope you're well. xoxo
