Channing Tatum for Dummies is a series of articles where I try to answer the most frequently asked questions about Channing Tatum that I receive from readers or find on message boards all over the internet.
Here are today's most frequently asked Channing Tatum Fan questions and answers:
Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan Question #1
In Channing's movie 'Stop-Loss', why are the patches on the uniforms and tattoos of the flag backwards?
To wear our country's flag properly, the field of stars is supposed to be worn closest to your heart. When worn on the sleeve of a military uniform, the flag should appear to be advancing and not retreating.
If your patch or tattoo is to be worn on your LEFT sleeve, you should use a left flag (which is what most of us are used to seeing). For patches or tattoos worn on your RIGHT sleeve, you should use a "right" or "reversed field" flag. Channing's tattoo is on his right arm in 'Stop-Loss', so he was given a right flag.
Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan Question #2
I just wondered if you could please tell me what jacket this is. It's worn by Channing Tatum while playing Tyler Gage in 'Step Up 2: The Streets'. Please could you try and find out the make and name of this jacket please?
I could not get all of the details on this one, but thanks to the film's director and his costume designer we at least now know a little more about the sweatshirt Channing is wearing in the club scene in 'Step Up 2: The Streets'.
Director Jon M. Chu was nice enough to forward the question to the film's costumer designer, and they said that Chan's sweatshirt is made by Nike. So hopefully that info can at least give fans a starting point to track down the popular clothing item.
Thanks to Jon and his costumer designer for taking the time to answer my question and thanks to Channing's Fans for submitting your questions!
