    I tried Rollei CR200 once and it did have this retro faded look. If you are willing to experiment, try CR200 or CN200 film and see if it gives you the look they are asking.
    But for a commercial shoot, I would agree with the other posters that Portra + photoshop sounds like a safest approach, at the minimum as a backup roll.

    Wow, thanks for all the responses! About the digital... I do know how to mimic old film quite nicely, and I have a ton of plug-is that do just that. Honestly since he wants it, I would just much rather shoot my hassy or mamiya 7ii. I figure if I shoot 10-15 shots per look I should be alright. I'm going to do a dry run in the studio before to text the exposure with my strobes...since I have never shot film like this before!
    I will try Portra 160NC and over-expose it a bit. I'm actually looking forward to this shoot! Thanks again!!

    That would be Portrait 160. I've bid on rolls on eBay a couple of times but it always went to more than I'm willing to pay for expired film.

    You may get the "faded look" no matter what film you shoot these days if you dont have a good lab

    I'm sure you are right. The last lab definitely closed and no-one else processes it even if you get some film. I loved Kodachrome. I don't think there is any current film with the realistic skin tones and blues also with the punchy reds it had. A real shame. Portra 160 would be closest but not as good in my view - and it's print film. All the modern slide films are either over saturated or under saturated and none have the balance.
