Get the Look: Rick Dalton

(Leonardo DiCaprio in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood)

It was Quentin Tarantino’s hotly anticipated new release of 2019, as well as the 10th film in the director’s limited yet unbelievably impressive filmography. The premise? An inside look into 1960s Hollywood following actor Rick Dalton and his stunt double Cliff Booth as they navigate the lottery of success in the Golden Age of Cinema. Our takeaway? A bromance-fuelled pic winning some serious style points when it comes to fitting out its leading men. Whether it’s Brad Pitt in an already iconic Hawaiian shirt and faded denim or a lesson from DiCaprio on tonal dressing in brown leather and a matching polo, the costume department was certainly on top of its game for this one. That’s why we’ve pegged Dalton down as a 2020 trail-blazer in men’s style and chosen one of the more timeless looks in the actor’s repertoire to break down and seek out for ourselves.

You can’t go wrong with a neutral base. Ché Studios’ Valbonne shirt in Ivory has got this covered, with an added striped detail on the sleeve for a twist on a classic.

Oliver’s Spencer’s Buckland Jacket in Phaidon Black is a modern take on Dalton’s classic black wardrobe staple.

Keeping it smart on set: Sunspel’s Linen Slim Fit Trousers in Light Stone mirror Dalton’s press-creased slacks.

Tie in the tones with some brown leather boots. Project TWLV’s Flames provide the durability and a sleek sheen to finish off the look.
