Working Titles – The Banshees of Inisherin

Working Titles takes a closer look at specific films with a denim and workwear aesthetic with the goal of examining the material’s shifting cultural image.

Most movies set in the 1920s feature wardrobes decked out in beautiful tailored suiting. Filmmakers like to take advantage of the legendary style of the jazz age, and rightfully so. The 1920s truly were a golden age of men’s formalwear that continues to inform our style to this day. The Banshees of Inisherin is not one of those movies.

Set in 1923, Martin McDonagh’s masterpiece about the falling out between two former best friends has a beautiful wardrobe —despite the fact there isn’t a single piece to jazz age tailoring. The wardrobe’s beauty lies in the subtle ornamentation that decorated common clothing of that age. The inhabitants of Inisherin island, located off the west coast of Ireland, wore rich textures and colors for such modest people.
