Certainly nothing worn by those pencil chested charlatans fr

The tasteless overpriced, inferior quality and questionable style of Tom Ford, would be replaced by suits from Saville Row, like those from Luttwyche (see "obey the suit ad" on youtube)

 

Becketts of JL Hermes? What, from Paris? You must be kidding!

 

The only thing the French do better than the English is they can host a good military invasion, but shoes are better sourced from Her Majesty's Commonwealth, like from John Lobb of St James. Even the Gaziano & Girling Sinatra would qualify as a shoe with far greater British flair, class and superior quality than the Becketts.

 

If the supplier is not on the List of Royal Warrant holder of the British Royal Family, then forget it, the garment is simply not good enough, so the Becketts would not cut the mustard.

 

Less formal wear, like sports coats,  casual trousers and casual shoes would be sourced from suppliers who are, If not holders of the Royal Warrant, then at the VERY least, established old British companies with products like Edward Green's Galway boots in Rosewood, Sandringham in Edwardian antique, Clò Mór fabric from the Island of Tweed and Holland & Sherry which actually does carry the Royal Warrant.

 

Buttons would be sourced from the London Badge Company or from Holland & Sherry, both of which carry the Royal Warrant.

 

And nobody as short, or as pencil chested or as piss ass effeminate as the tiny 38" and 40" chested Hollywood versions of James Bond would even make it through the British Military selection process, much less into MI-5 or Scotland Yard, Sean Connery being a possible exception.

 

Shirts would be sourced from companies like Hudson or Turnbull Asser (both with the Royal Warrant)

 

No matter how good Cesare Attolini is, or Oxxford, or Brioni or Kiton, none of these would be worn by the real James Bond because they would simply not be good enough.



Okay man, good information but all I only think that the style in the movie was nice. Not what he would wear in real life or the kingdom haha :)

When you dress according to what OTHER people think is acceptable, or, when you dress according to what some "Royal Warrant" dictates, well then you really are nothing but a snob.

 

You select and wear clothing to suit YOU, YOUR personality, YOUR body shape, YOUR lifestyle and that way you will find your dress will only improve as you get to know yourself better.

 

Fuck everyone else.

 

Of course you are 100 % right. And I agree with you. I have my own style but I think what bond is using in Casino Royale would be nice on me 2 thats why I wonder what brand it is, how to use it. Because it's all new to me.
