Before we move on to Jordan’s costume, who is he actually?

Jordan Belfort is the main character of the 2013 Martin Scorseser film, The Wolf of Wall Street, which is based on the true story of a young stockbroker making his way to the top, Jordan Belfort. Leonardo DiCaprio plays the role of Jordan Belfort and does such a convincing job that you sometimes forget you are watching an actor play a part.

Giorgio Armani and The Wolf of The Wallstreet

Costume designer, Sandy Powell, was in charge of dressing the cast in 1990’s fashion. She brought in the help of Giorgio Armani and Leonard Logsdail to create the suits worn by the cast. Logsdail created pieces for the actual crew of Jordan Belfort and his wolves of Wall Street back in the 1980s and 1990s. It is said that they would sometimes mistake the tailoring chalk on the suits for lines of cocaine. (Source: GG Magazine)

“The Armani look of the ’90s was among the most influential menswear styles of the era, and we strove to capture that same legendary look with the help of Mr. Armani and his team,”

Powell explained.

Armani said in an interview with WWD that it was quite clear why DiCaprio’s character Jordan Belfort wears his suits.

“The era of power dressing on Wall Street projected tremendous amounts of resolute strength. I remember the period well, when my deconstructed suiting emerged as an emblem of success,” said the designer. “The complex character of Jordan Belfort required a look with the same unmatched nerve and sense of self.”

The fresh shirts and elegant suits fit perfectly with the elegant film character.

It was also quite clear forMartin Scorsese, which designer he wanted for his costumes.

“Giorgio Armani revolutionized male fashion design. He gave us a new idea of elegance that fit perfectly then and still does today. Giorgio and I have worked together very often in recent years and it was a pleasure to do it again – to go back in time and tell a story that authentically shows the style of the early 90s,”

said the director.
