Never Say You're Sorry
When Valet talked to Daiki earlier this week he mentioned 3 movies that influenced his perception and appreciation of American style while growing up in Japan. Since I had already recapped two of these films via screenshots I figured I might as well go for the trifecta. Admittedly, I knew nothing about Love Story (1970) before checking it out besides the famous quote "love is never having to say you're sorry" so I really didn't know what to expect. The end result is a touching film, albeit depressing as hell, practically bursting at the seams with both trad and Ivy style - I mean, the dude gets married in a button down collar. Interestingly enough the main character, Oliver, is continually called "preppy", but that seems more to do with his educational background than the actual clothes he is wearing. Anyhow, if you're looking for some cold weather inspiration (the movie mostly takes place during Boston and NYC's winters) and some waterworks courtesy of your girl (not sure why you would, but to each his own) you might want to check this out. Also, be on the lookout for a younger, but just as badass version of the one and only Tommy Lee Jones.
