Good Question: War of the Worlds, Take 2

From A SheFinds Reader: Hi there. I’m just wondering if you can identify or find out the brand of shoes and hoodie sweatshirt Tom Cruise wore in “War of the Worlds.” Any info would be greatly appreciated.

The Answer: Funny how appearing in a blockbuster film can turn workwear into sought-after-wear. According to Paramount Studios, the navy hoodie was from J. Crew. The Gortex brown leather laceup boots are the Workman style from Danner, in case you decide to get in touch with your inner lumberjack. I’m also told the boots were resoled and made “flatter” for the movie. The lengths costume designers will go to…And the lengths we’ll go to in an effort to look like our favorite stars. On anyone else who’s not filthy rich and world famous, the outfit wouldn’t even register. But on Sir Cruise…well, it is Tom Cruise after all. ‘Nuff said. Find the hoodie at and the boots at
