Bow Ties And Bong Hits: Andy Garcia In At Middleton


A reader with an eagle eye for spotting three-button sacks in the wild tipped us off to the upcoming film “At Middleton,” which is slated for release later this month.

Andy Garcia stars as George, a trad dad who learns to cut loose and find love while on a college tour with his son. The film’s Facebook page offers the following synopsis:

It’s not only teenagers who find themselves when they go off to college. Two brilliant actors best known for dramatic roles join forces in a romantic romp, and they have a ball. Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia play strangers who meet while escorting their teen children to campus-tour day at a mythical college named Middleton (the film is in part a hilarious parody of American college life).

In the trailer below, George sports a white buttondown, bow tie, navy blazer with a 3/2 roll, khakis and loafers all supplied by Brooks Brothers, as well as tortoise horn-rims by Anglo-American, according to the film’s credits.

Those apprehensive about the bow tie might take heart in how Farmiga’s character Edith quips flirtatiously, “Wait. Let me guess. Are you a Brooks Brothers model?”

Considering how she seductively unties his bow, she evidently doesn’t think it’s a bad thing. — ZACHARY DELUCA

    Just what my (Boomer ) generation needs: a another movie with the message that adults should act more like children.

  3. Good in movie promo move by BB. Nothing revolutionary, but they are trying.

  4. I think the trailer is funny

    I have and will always love Vera Farmiga.

  6. Is the blue and yellow rep the only bow tie Brooks provided?

  7. The story takes place over the course of a day, how many times does one change a bow tie per day?

  8. Not sure how much good this will do for the popularity of Ivy style, given that the character wearing the clothes is a stiff who needs to loosen up and rediscover his inner child.

  9. Boomer, Gen X, every generation past the Greatest seem to behave like children.

  10. Indeed, some Boomers and Gen Xers even dress up like college boys from the 1950s and 1960s.

  11. Darn it, am I the only man under 50 who thinks up-tight is a fun lifestyle?
