Source Code tweed jacket blue shirt

8 Minutes and Counting

Jake Gyllenhaal who plays Colter Stevens in Source Code has 8 minutes to figure shit out. He gets blown up more times than a Pinewood Stage and does so wearing a black and brown tweed Daniel Hechter jacket with chocolate suede elbow patches.

His wardrobe suggests he is an entry level employee with a basic respect for office attire. He is comfortable in his place of work and is not looking to climb the corporate chain.

To compliment the jacket Colter wears a blue long sleeve B.D. Baggies oxford shirt; grey Madison Avenue silk tie; dark navy blue J.W. Brine pants (size 32); and dark brown suede Hugo Boss belt. (Description taken from auction site).

This entire ensemble was sold at Nate D. Sanders auction for $916.

It tells the time

As with many films where time is of the essence, the watch has several close ups. The watch is a  Victorinox Swiss Army Chrono Classic XLS MT (product code 241300) wristwatch. You can find more info on the Watch-ID website. It retails for around 700 bucks.

Sorry should have introduced myself

Costume Designer Renée April gave Dr Rutledge played by Jeffrey Wright, a scrupulous 3-piece brown suit. The brown suit has slightly roped sleeve heads but look very natural. It fits his frame very well.

The notches have a deep gorge but nothing too dated. He also has a metallic dress watch to bring some extra shimmer and luxury to his look, but I couldn’t identify the brand.

Brother from Langley

Rutledge is a man who takes his style and position very seriously. He combs his tiny island of hair with fastidious purpose and embellishes his suit with a pocket square that is largely concealed by a note pad or piece of paper.

Z from Tie Another Day describes the tie:

I would describe the tie pattern as a diagonal chequerboard pattern with alternating pattern of black and yellow solid squares on top of a grey and white mini chequerboard pattern.

It can be a metaphor for the story that chess is used as the protagonist is trying every possible move to identify the suspect. Also a bit inception like in that the pattern is kind of self replicating.
