The Great Escape - How Steve McQueen 'The Cooler King' Achieved the Rebel Look
In this episode I speak to David Zaritsky of The Bond Experience about the rebel style moments of Steve McQueen in The Great Escape.
We also talk more around the clothes and style worn by the likes of James Garner, James Coburn, Charles Bronson and some of the key tailoring moments from this sixties war time classic.
We talk for about 20 minutes, then I've got some listener mail, and some thank yous to get through, I'll do the charts etc. So stay tuned for that.
David, always bringing the research, the funnies and the enthusiasm. You can check out David of course over at The Bond Experience.
You can also catch Matt and I talk exclusively to David over on his channel The Bond Experience about the book tomorrow if you're listening to this on the Sunday that is.
Make sure you're checking out the show notes by Sajid of Niven Tailors. He scrutinises the look of McQueen from a tailors standpoint.
