Brad Pitt’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Boots Are On Sale Online For $100
Sometime around March this year we were blessed with our first look at what Quentin Tarantino’s hotly anticipated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood would look like.
The poster starred two of Hollywood’s leading mean - Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio - looking as cool as ever in a pairing GQ readers could have only dreamed of.
Here, and throughout the film, Pitt, touted to be playing stuntman Cliff Booth, and DiCaprio, as actor Rick Dalton, are swathed in a whole bunch of late-’60s staples that, not coincidentally, are as fire as ever right now: Hawaiian shirts, turtle necks, trucker jackets, and big bad shades.
But the peak of costume designer Ariane Phillips’ choices for Pitt lie in the Minnetonka moccasin boots that he wears with a pair of boot-cut light denim jeans and matching brown belt.
Originally launched in 1969 (which is actually the year the movie is set), the boots have been reissued for real people to actually buy for an pretty affordable USD 69.95.
And while they’re probably not the easiest style to pull off, if you’re a fan of the acid-tripping vibes that nearly every menswear influencer on Instagram is into, then they’re probably the easiest way to channel your inner Pitt/ hippy-dippy ’60s persona.
As for the film itself, it has been confirmed that Charles Manson (played by Aussie Damien Herriman) and his actions will, at some point, come into the film, with the Manson Family murders likely to serve as some kind of backdrop to the film's events. A good bulk of the film seems to revolve around Spahn's ranch — a popular place for filming western films and eventual home for Charles Manson and his commune.
"I’ve been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old,” says director Quentin Tarantino. “I’m very excited to tell this story of an L.A. and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff."
