Casino Royale style... - Page 27

post #391 of 416
Ah, but when Bond started his service, Hong Kong was still a Crown colony.
Many an old school British officer has their togs tailored on the Island. As for his flat, its in Chelsea off the King's Road. Even if its paid for, and the furnishings were inherited, the place can't be cheap. I think mosto f his galbming winnings went on cases of Tattinger Blanc de Blanc and whiskey--he's supposed to drink half a bottle of spirits a day.

I argee, the suit is great, but would be better with a dark grenadine.

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.

I think the suit looks pretty darn good, but I agree that it doesn't really suit Bond. I picture him in something with a more military vibe.

I think these comments make sense but you have to look at who is Bond in this context. Yes, Moore, Dalton or Brosnan would need a "strong, commanding" looking suit because they look like British Midland flight attendants. But Daniel Craig's physique is already pretty strong and commanding - he doesn't need strong roped shoulders to mean business. The softer, trimmer suit works very well on him IMO

According to this Craig wears Tom Ford privately: http://www.mi6.co.uk/news/index.php?itemid=5694 /C

It's kind of surprising to see Brioni go after all of the tie-in marketing they did with the last film.

Oh my GOD! He looks terrible in that suit in my eyes. I really, really hope that he won't look remotely like that in the movie. I have been looking forward to it so much and the clothing was of course one of my favourite parts in the last movie (I liked what Brioni did) but THIS - gosh.

Mr. Sand--
What is it that you don't like about his new suit? looks like a well tailored suit with high softer shoulders, trim cut, but nothing outlandish.

Also, take heart forum members-- when the Bond franchise dropped Brioni, Brioni Roman Style decided to clothe me in my new career path 2008-10, but stipulated I had to spend at least 3 days a week at the gym. Lindy Hemming has no comment at this time.

by the way, here is another shot or two of the mysterious necktie from casino royale, i believe.

This confirms for me that Dunhill will be Cmdr. Bond's new tailor. It does make sense that a perennial Englishman such as James Bond should be clothed in English clothes tailored to a traditional English cut. Apparently D.C. wore Dunhill to the Casino Royale premiere.

I think it is mainly the shoulder part - they look like they were smaller than his hips (well, almost).
He just doesn't look powerful or smart at all. Not how I picture Bond.

With this new pic from Bond 22, it's time for a new "mystery tie". As Craig is being now outfitted by Dunhill, does anyone know if this tie is from them? I have checked the usual sources (even all the regimentals at Ben Silver) but can't find this one:

A bit trendy for the character I think. He's suppose to have a cover as a conservative British businessman. It's a nice suit, but I don't think it fits the character. Of course, they are trying to take the Bond character in a new direction it seems.
post #403 of 416
well, personal likes/dislikes of the outfit aside whether the bond character actually wears something as distinctive as the pic is another question. in fact, early pics of DC in wardrobe for actual production adheres to the subtle look typical of past bond films much more than what it is in the pic

And it looks like he has a new 3-piece:



And a new coat people will probably inquire about from production shots:
