Director Terrence Young took Connery to his tailor to be fitted for his Dr. No suits. Connery was a bit rough around the edges and not really in tune with the genteel lifestyle of Young (and Bond as written by Fleming), so learned a lot from Young, including sleeping in a new suit to break it in and feel comfortable in it when the cameras are rolling.

Love all of this!

I'm with you mind - don't think I could bring myself to wear a crisp new suit in bed and wake up with it all wrinkled and crumpled.

Friday.

I wanted to use red socks with this outfit, but that is an impossible choise in Norway. Red socks was the signature of our late, but most beloved clown, and they allways brings out the wrong kind of smile in people - even if mine are from Gammarelli.

His theory was that when you got a new suit, you were stiff and too careful with the suit...sleeping in it got it wrinkled and a bit disheveled and would help "wear the newness out of it"

 

I really like the idea behind that! I fear, though, that sleeping in your new suit might damage / rip it somehow, no? I think I move a lot in my sleep, from lying on the one side and rolling over to the other. Also, wouldn't it unnecessarily stretch the wool (cashmere, silk, ...) and all?

 

I can see most people babying their tailoring way too much, though, I think a lot of guys I regularily see in suit and tie bring them to the dry cleaners once every two weeks :confused:

See -that's the advantage of living in a suburb. Me, if I wanted to do that, I'd have to hire a taxi, and the driver would have to tie me down to the roof. That wouldn't be so bad, but it would make me nuts not to be able to see the meter.

LXIV, what is it you dislike about the tie and knot? It's a double four in hand that I used as with a single the knot would be too small for the shirt collar.

 

Thanks for your help!

If in doubt I always prefer a tie knot too small over one too large, thus a single FIH would have been my preference.
As for the tie itself, I don't like its color/pattern, but I am a sucker for CBD so maybe it's just not conservative enough for my taste but in good taste generally speaking.

This is the most transparently untrue statement you've ever made on StyFo.
