Grenson brown wingtips from Get On Up seen with Chadwick Boseman (James Brown)
Father of Funk: Even as a minor in juvie, James Brown (Chadwick Boseman) had ambition, dreaming of adoring fans and of an amazing career in music. Chalk up his success to Aunt Honey's (Octavia Spencer) encouragement, his electric stage presence, and of course, his roguish boldness. From fur coats paired with cowboy hats to dangerous concerts in war-torn Vietnam, James Brown flouted all the rules except one: "if it sounds good and feels good, it's musical!"
As James Brown (Chadwick Boseman) goes from wayward teen to music's biggest star, his wardrobe gets a major update. Eschewing jean on jean looks from the past, he opts for bold outfits like a checkered vest and suit jacket combo, electric blue tux, and bright floral prints. Even his arm candy (aka hot backup singers) comes in floral packages.
