Sine I was a kid I have enjoyed his films, from breaking the Watergate scandal in All The President's Men to gun slinging with Paul Newman in the Sundance Kid, tearing women's hearts out in The Way We Were, keeping audiences on the edge of their seats in Spy Game and capturing our imagination in The Great Gatsby.
So much has he been a part of our lives that when I was recently asked to make shirts for Robert Redford I pretty much cleared by schedule to ensure he got a perfect fit. Redford was in Sydney making a film and we were presented with his measurements and a tight window in which to get the work done. What made me nervous is that the selection of fabrics chosen by Mr. Redford were so luxurious that any mistakes would cost us dearly to fix. Nevertheless, I am happy to report back that the shirts were a success and only a small adjustment to the collar was needed to complete the order.
So, today I thought I would pay homage to the Robert Redford I have known since I was a kid. Here is a sample of the many looks that have been uniquely his over the years.
