North By Northwest

Starring in one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best known films, Cary Grant can be seen wearing a grey suit in North By Northwest throughout most of the movie. If you watch closely though, you can notice in some close ups that the fabric is actually a very subtle Prince of Wales pattern in a grey/blue mix.
