Dress like Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves in Point Break

Set in early ’90s L.A., surfing and bank robbery collide for the ultimate rush in Point Break.


“You are now in the world’s bank robbery capital,” says agent FBI agent Ben Harp (John C. McGinley) to Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) on his first day at the Bureau. Utah has been assigned alongside seasoned veteran Angelo Pappas (Gary Busey) to investigate a clan of bank robbers knowns as the “Ex-Presidents”. “L.A. has changed a lot,” says Pappas to the fresh-faced rookie. “The air got dirty and the sex got clean.” This is the tone of Kathyrn Bigelow’s 1991 film Point Break.

Convinced that their men are a band of renegade surfers, Utah goes undercover as a wannabe wave-catcher, infiltrating a subculture of spirit-searching surfers led by a Bodhi (Patrick Swayze), a.k.a. Bodhisattva. Though corny dialogue collides with predictable plot turns, Point Break is a spectacle and a half, filled with chase scenes, shootouts and skydiving without parachutes, culminating with the biggest surf this planet has ever seen. “You’ve got that kamikaze look,” says Utah’s lover, Tyler (Lori Petty), after Utah’s full-fledged transition from suit-wearing yuppie to loose-hanging beachcomber. She warns: “Bodhi can smell it a mile away. He’ll take you to the edge.” Not phased? Here are the modern-day shirts, trunks and accessories you need to jump in with style.
