I remember seeing that one. It was very nice.

one of the similar ties i had was a rlpl that is most likely the one you are referring to. although the pattern was similar (the rlpl tie was a little bit smaller/tighter pattern) the tie itself was crap. it was matte finish (i.e. not the sheen in the picture provided above), the drape was horrible, the tie was completely dead - silk stiff, poor knot - honestly, its one of the worst ties ive ever purchased.

Saw this online today, halfway down the page. a much softer shoulder and trim cut suit for Bond 22 - - which I think is a much better look than Brioni for Craig. Brioni is just not for everyone, despite my obsession with the brand. If I'm not mistaken, you can see the Omega Seamaster on his wrist as well. Sweet.

if that one doesn't work, i think this is the image by itself

Is the suit a glen plaid? sharkskin?
Interesting tie. Can't wait for this movie!

I also think this looks a better fit than the Brioni he wore in CR. I seem to remember reading Dunhill would be supplying the suits for the new film.

I guess it makes more sense for Bond to wear Dunhill than Brioni. Although, given their background with the Royal Navy, would Gieves & Hawkes be the most appropriate?

+1 - I don't care for the suit in the pic - very un-Bond.

Given what we know aobut Bond--Naval officer, served in the Far East, and grew up without a penny, I think the most appropriate would be WW Chan. More realistic on a civil servant's salary.

He's independently wealthy having made millions playing baccarat chemin de fer against Bond villains.

NO way-- Bond is a servant of the Queen, the secret service's lapdog.....only fitting that he wear bespoke suits tailored in London. Besides, the books and the movies both detail his extensive gambling wins, which I always assumed went toward his tailor and maintaining his classic auto. I'm sure he would have spent very little time in his modest london flat, no reason to blow money on that.

WW Chan! Harumph!


change that tie to a solid colored woven grenadine, and I think it's very Bond.

While the suit itself looks nice, I think it just gives off too much of a soft vibe. I always imagined Bond as sharp, strong, and commanding.
