2 MIN. READ

Few people know exactly what goes into making a major Hollywood film. Everything has to be perfect, from the makeup, to the lighting, to the set design to the costume design. So if your clothing brand is trusted enough to grace stars like Kurt Russell, Will Smith, Jack Nicholson, Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino on the silver screen, you can be assured that the clothing's quality is impeccable. Ike Behar has been featured in numerous movies across the decades and is still sought after today to make our most beloved movie stars look their best.

Ike Behar in the movies

Here are a few highlights from over the years:

- "John Wick." Working with esteemed costume director Luca Mosca, Ike Behar created John Wick's signature black and charcoal suits. These stylish, adrenaline-pumping action movies are about getting all the bad guys and making it look good. Behar's suits play a large role in the latter and give the protagonist the underlying feeling of supreme masculinity.

- "Wall Street." There may not have been a more influential piece of media to the dress shirt market in the late 1980s than the movie "Wall Street." You may not have liked the suave stock traders in the movie, but nobody can say they didn't look superb.

- "Reversal of Fortune." Ike Behar himself worked as the costume designer for Jeremy Irons in this dramatic legal thriller from 1990. Few shirtmakers from Havana, Cuba, can say they've reached the level of Hollywood costume designer.

- "Richie Rich." Obviously, such a character couldn't be seen on screen in subpar attire, so Ike Behar was called into action. He provided multiple suits for the movie's titular character, played by a growing Macaulay Culkin.

- "Hangover 2."In this hilarious sequel to one of the most successful comedy movies of all time, Behar provided the shirts to all of the wedding scenes.

Ike Behar's work hasn't just been seen on the big screen, either. He has been a part of several acclaimed television series as well. This includes hit shows such as "The Sopranos," "Entourage," "Weeds" and "Magic City." Ike Behar, a master craftsman, made suits for Tony Soprano and lived to tell about it.

As you can see, not only has Ike Behar's clothing been featured in a wide variety of films and television, but all the projects he's been involved with have always featured characters that were supposed to look great. Looking the part is always a main characteristic of these heroes or antiheroes. This should say something about the absolute quality that Ike Behar delivers. This philosophy isn't just manifested in the films he's brought in for, but in every clothing line he releases. Everybody should have the ability to look their best.

Your self-confidence can only truly shine through when you're unencumbered by the doubt and anxiety regarding appearance that we all feel from time to time. Show off your best self. Someone who would fit right in on the big screen. Be a better you in clothing by Ike Behar.
