20 Most Stylish Quentin Tarantino Characters

There are things we’ve come to expect from Tarantino films; a very special dialogue, in your face violence and a wardrobe with a lot of personality. So with The Hateful Eight mere months away from gracing our screens, here are some of the director’s most stylish characters to whet your appetite.

    1. Mr Blonde – Reservoir Dogs

    Tarantino basically single-handedly brought the two-piece suit back into fashion in the 90s. While most of the cast of Reservoir Dogs pull off the look, you have to hand it to Mr Blonde, he even looked good swaying to “Stuck in The Middle With You” mid-torturing. The best bit is that the suits were all vintage finds.

    2. Marsellus Wallace – Pulp Fiction

    You’d probably be hard pressed to find a clementine-hued, chef-style shirt today (and probably back in the 90s too) but if you ever need inspiration on how to pull off a turtleneck, this is your guy.

    3. Lieutenant Aldo Raine – Inglorious Basterds

    While his military style is impressive, it’s his civilian pea coat with leather edges that set his character apart. And also maybe the scar across his neck and his killing methods, but we digress. Teamed with a loosely tied scarf and plenty of layering, it’s a look you could carry off as well today. Not to mention a side parting you wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of.

    4. Django – Django Unchained

    A knitted scarf, cowboy hat, cropped jacket and leather gloves; you’d be forgiving for thinking it might not work. But while we’re envious of how so damn cool Django looks in that ensemble, it’s a certain blue suit that we’ll never forget.

    5. Pumpkin/Ringo – Pulp Fiction

    The legendary director is not afraid to throw a Hawaiian shirt or two into scenes.  And Pumpkin, who’s decisions are less than savvy, pulls off the print pretty well.

    6. Vincent Vega – Pulp Fiction

    You can’t go wrong with a black suit and white shirt, but you can jazz it up with a bolo tie.

    7. Mickey Knox – Natural Born Killers

    Dysfuntional? Yes. Insane? Absolutely. But the serial killer does pair a baby bald head with Lenon glasses spectacularly well.

    8. Butch – Pulp Fiction

    If ever you need convincing to buy a suede jacket, Butch is all you need to look at.

    9. Calvin Candie – Django Unchained

    He’s a deplorable human being but he dresses to the elevens on every occasion, teaming expensive fabrics with faultless tailoring.

    10. Ordell Robbie – Jacki Brown

    Only Samuel L Jackson can team a Kangol flat cap with a rats-tail goatee and look good as a result.

    11. Seth Gecko – From Dusk Till Dawn

    His tattoos are, well, awful. But he somehow makes a shirtless loose-fitting suit look good with just a ribbed undershirt.

    12. Vincenzo Coccotti – True Romance

    A silk scarf over a suit and coloured tie; it’s a pretty classic look, and that means its pretty timeless too.

    13. Dr King Schultz – Django Unchained

    This man knows how to layer.

    14. Stuntman Mike – Death Proof

    Before there was Gosling and his bomber jacket, there was Stuntman Mike and his.

    15. Pai Mei – Kill Bill Vol.2

    The master was rocking a man bun way before it was cool.

    16. Jules Winnfield – Pulp Fiction

    Jules is testament to style being inherent. Only small details set his suit apart from Vincent’s, but with gold accents like his chunky bracelet and a pinky ring and a silver tongue, he’s one of the most memorable characters for numerous reasons. The most iconic wallet in cinema’s history may play a part too.

    17. Clarence Worley – True Romance

    Another proponent of a strong Hawaiian shirt, Clarence keeps it breezy by unbuttoning it to his naval and teaming with some, err, statement sunglasses.

    20. Donny Donowitz – Inglorious Basterds

    The Bear Jew has as many style moments throughout the film as he has swings of his bat. There’s the belted leather jacket, paired with a knitted jumper and shirt, the tanktop and braces and the khaki bomber jacket.

    19. Brett – Pulp Fiction

    Other than being the recipient of Jules’ infamous “say ‘what’ again” line, Brett wears a denim button down pretty well while facing the barrel of a gun. It’s norm core at it’s finest.

    18. Hugo Stiglitz – Inglorious Basterds

    Boasting a more relaxed military style, Stiglitz loose open collar shirt and unbuttoned jacket give an air of nonchalance to one of the most uptight characters in the film. Not that we blame him.
