Yesterday I've seen the trailer in cinema for the first time. Yikes. The attire is horrible. Skinny (lapel'd) suits, narrow shirt collar points nowhere near the lapels, everything really tight... I have no idea why TF would put his name on these clothes. QoS, albeit the shitty story, was wonderful in terms of suits, and to me the peak of the post-Connery style. Now it's just blah. The skinny stuff doesn't flatter Craig at all. It might work for skinny young guys, but Craig's athletic build needs serious clothes, no boy stuff.

I completely agree. The positive reactions I've heard to the clothes say the tight fit is good because it accentuates Craig's muscular build. But doing so sacrifices all elegance. I've heard that Ford designed these suits for the film, though I'm sure at the direction of the film's costume designer. The perfectionist that Tom Ford is makes me really question his involvement, because a fit with so many creases and really poor drape is against what he believes in. It's the intended look, but it resembles poor tailoring and a poor fit. Ford has also stated how much he hates skinny lapels.

Another guess of mine about the poor fit is that since the suits had to be made early on, Craig has probably bulked up quite a lot since he was measured for the suits. That would explain all the fit problems except for the short length and rise (it looks like his trousers are falling down).

Well according to the jamesbondlifestyle site, he wears two models in sky fall the falconer and o'conner. The falconer was already designed for that film "A single man" so maybe he worked with the costume designer for the 2nd one. As for your point regarding him bulking up. I thought so too at first but then i realized that Brioni, and even TF during QoS managed to get the fit right for CR and QoS so why slip up now.

He has clearly bulked up more now than he did in QoS. In Casino Royale I think he had been training longer so he was probably already fairly muscular when he was fitted. The Falconer suit was modified for Craig. I don't know if he made it before, but I had only seen the Falconer suit in a button 2 whilst Craig's suits are all button 3. And judging from Colin Firth's suits in A Single Man, the Falconer is meant to fit at least with a proper length.

Saw the photos of Daniel Craig on Skyfall. Personally, I think Tom Ford did a pretty good job on the suits. The grey pinstripe suit certainly did not disappoint. The snug fit/slim tie seem to be the trend with TomFord and to me it fits Craig just fine although he certainly beefed up for the role this time.

What did you all think of the clothing? Time to update this thread now :) The C&J shoes was a nice touch I think!

I think there can be no doubt the suits are too tight in the jacket and likely elsewhere, an extreme take on the more fitted look. That aside, I like the suits they chose-- nearly bought a charcoal glen plaid yesterday after seeing bond's

I guess this is where style and fashion diverge; Bond looks amazing in fashion, but given time the suits will date and look flawed. A Savile Row tailor wouldn't make those suits, which is why they weren't asked. Perfect for the moment, no good for the decade.
