Turnbull and Asser outfitting Bond again?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I had almost forgotten that I signed up for T&A updates when I found this bit of news in my inbox: So... does this mean we're going to spot any turnback cuff shirts back in the Bond wardrobe? I certainly hope so. The thing that concerns me is that the bowtie looks pre-tied there, but then again this could just be for display. On a slightly different note, why is Bond tie-less in the opening sequence now?

Pre-packaged formalwear smacks of Men's Wearhouse.

But it's a LIMITED COLLECTION set! Mainly I'm just interested in what people think of T&A coming back to the Bond franchise. I also note that in a more modern twist, the shirt is fly fronted instead of having buttonholes for studs. Last time I saw formal shirts with this feature was in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. (Linked, since IMDB protects against direct image linking.)

Ye Gads, that's worse than the Omega Seamaster with the litle "007's" all over the dial.

I thought Bond had moved up to a Walther P99 Compact as his sidearm of choice? A great small gun to be sure, but a very different look than the PP/PPK.

I thought he was just using a Walther P99 full size. Maybe it's different in this movie, but I could have sworn I saw a poster with a PPK. TCN: This is not worse. Nobody can point this out as a 007 branded piece when worn.

His pistol looks like a P99QA, because I think I see the butt of the grip extending to the bottom of his hand. The P99C is considerably smaller. Not an authorative answer. I am not sure I like this Bond, but the trailer plays more like one of the Bourne flicks, which would be a welcome respite from every other Bond film since Diamonds Are Forever.

i think i'll wait it out for the "talladega nights" limited edition ricky bobby racing suit collection.

I don't think Talladega Nights is established enough in film history to have its own limited edition clothing.

Perhaps this is a sign of things to come? It does look a bit too Men's Wearhouse, but I suppose that depends on the purchaser's motive; collect or wear.

That's very tacky. Indeed, even the box is very badly designed. It looks like The Valentinu Luxury Milano set you might find at a Chinese flea market.

Yeah, but if I see that box in your closet . . .

I knew it was a P99, but just guessed that for concealment they would use the compact . . . either way, a nice gun, worked well for Kate Beckinsale in that Underworld movie.
