He is a terrific actor and was great in Munich, but he is no more correct for James Bond than is Whoopee Goldberg.
Works in the books, not in the movies. You have to have variety when you have an image presented to an audience rather than imagined in a reader's head. I'm not at all surprised about your opinion...

I didn't really see a problem with him not having a vest or cummerbund, especially when his trousers were cut correctly for that. The shirt actually had hidden buttons, but I found the lack of a bib a bit odd. Oh well.

Best most convincing Bond ever. The 3pc was amazing aswell as the peaked lapel and that overcoat. He IS Bond.

Does anyone here know all the watches that Bond wore in the movie?

Also which light blue tie did he wore with the suit?

My dear friends. the suits were OK. the tuxedo was OK, but no cummerband, but the most revealing scene was that at the runaway of the airport, on top of the Gas tanker. My friends, he wore WHITE SOCKS.
Sadly to say, James Bond is dead. I still have not recovered from that vision from hell.

So you prefer that zip up light blue furry thing that Connery wore in Goldfinger.

One of them is an "O-mee-gah" Planet Ocean. O-mee-gah currently has a "Casino Royale" limited edition Planet Ocean. I believe he also wore a second model, but don't know for certain.

Brioni was listed in the film credits, so I assume the suits and DJ were by them.

I liked the tan, peak lapel suit as well, but I didn't really care for the white short-sleeve shirt with epaulettes. However it did seem appropriate to the character as something that a Brit on holiday in the Bahamas would wear - especially one with a military background like Bond.

As others have stated, his tuxedo shirt had a placket covering the buttons and I actually didn't notice the lack of a cummerbund.

I also quite liked the more casual look he adopted during the day for some of the scenes - like the look he was wearing on the hotel balcony in Montenegro and the outfit on the boat in Venice. I'm glad to see that Bond can be updated to show that you can look good without wearing a suit everyday.

EDIT - found a picture of Brosnan in one of my books, which I believe is from The World is Not Enough where he is wearing a similar tuxedo shirt with a placket covering the buttons. Not surprising, considering it was Brioni as well.

FYI - I realized that I wasn't shocked by that look on Craig because I've had a picture of that (Bond in a Tuxedo) as my screensaver for the past 2-3 months.

Sorry - light gray, not tan, you are correct.

Regardless, it was gorgeous. The roll on that suit was perfect. Even though it was only on the screen for a few seconds, my eyes jumped to it.

And I posted this on the film review thread, but did anyone else notice that the striped shirt he wore near the beginning of the film was too large around the neck, whereas the tux shirt was an absolutely perfect fit?
