The dinner jacket worn in Skyfall was not the same as at the premiere. The one in the film was actually very close to midnight blue, really just a dark navy, and it was worn with matching trousers. The textured, mid-blue dinner jacket was thankfully not in the film. Still, it was too short as well.
I can't imagine there would be any benefit to getting a cotton/wool blend over 10% wool. With cotton it will be less wrinkle-resistent, won't wear neither as warm nor as cool as all wool, and it won't be as durable. I can only imagine it might be cheaper, though if it's a good quality it will hardly be cheaper. There's no good reason for it.
Jeans have a place: gardening, carpentry, plumbing, motorcycle riding, etc. I can see why Barbera wouldn't wear them.
He has clearly bulked up more now than he did in QoS. In Casino Royale I think he had been training longer so he was probably already fairly muscular when he was fitted. The Falconer suit was modified for Craig. I don't know if he made it before, but I had only seen the Falconer suit in a button 2 whilst Craig's suits are all button 3. And judging from Colin Firth's suits in A Single Man, the Falconer is meant to fit at least with a proper length.
I completely agree. The positive reactions I've heard to the clothes say the tight fit is good because it accentuates Craig's muscular build. But doing so sacrifices all elegance. I've heard that Ford designed these suits for the film, though I'm sure at the direction of the film's costume designer. The perfectionist that Tom Ford is makes me really question his involvement, because a fit with so many creases and really poor drape is against what he believes in. It's the...
Yes, that is Tom Ford. And just as much the work of costume designer Jany Temime. It's the most Tom Ford-looking piece in the film, since the lapels are sufficiently wide (though still not wide by conventional standards) and I believe the trousers have pleats. Still, the jacket length and button stance need to come down an inch and the jacket is much too tight overall. Ford likes a close cut, but still a neat cut. This cut is the decision of Temime, not Ford. Just look at...
That is not appropriate. The waistcoat should have 5 or 6 buttons, with 6 being the most traditional. Both would have about the same button stance.
Did they redo your shirt?
I don't have experience with MyTailor or Nialma, but Modern Tailor has really stiff fusing in the collar and cuffs, and that's not even with selecting the stiff option.
Is this shirt for your girlfriend? Then if you like her forearms get a 3/4 sleeve.
