Spotlight on Wardrobe


At Ian Drummond Collection, we’re always interested in catching items we rent in action on the screen.

We have a different perspective when watching though – we know that wardrobe is a form of communication, and can hardly relax for our constant inner observations and analysis.


This weekend, the movie Spotlight hits theatres, and we provided a good deal of 1970s clothing for the flashbacks. Nothing speaks of the period quite like tan and brown acrylic sweaters, right?


But today, hearing all the great publicity it’s getting and being old enough to remember the story as it broke, we took a minute to pull our sweater that we glimpsed in the trailer.  All we can think upon having a closer look at it was:  That’s a 26″ chest. Those children whose stories are being told were so small and young.


Good work, movie makers. Thank you, Wardrobe Department.
