James Bond Trailer SKYFALL- Tom Ford wardrobe - Page 2

post #16 of 300

Suit is NOT tight on him he has a slim/muscular build. If he started to increase inches on his suit then you guys would cry fowl that the suit is too big. I think alot of guys on the forum lost the meaning of what a suitd does its suppose to 'move' with you and be close to the skin without nut huggnig it. His suits are made to his specific body and no one else can wear his suit!  it may look tight on him, but dont blame him for have a lean body vs others who might have a pear shape, enlarged chest, enlarged stomach etc....that cant wear such fitting clothes.

 

Even if he wore a JoS bank suit tailored to his body it will still look good on him vs a person who is 350lbs buying a 6k dollar suit. Where folks would side with the 6k suit and say it looks nice only due to price tag.

Excellent point...

Seeing the crotch of trousers tear open is indeed comical, but I don't think the tone would quite go with the Bond franchise.


On a sidenote, looks like a shawl lapel tux this time around. I think the other two Daniel Craig ones were both peak lapel.

well, I only said that because he's performing stunts and being very active and the suits accomidate for that all while still looking good. If they were truly "too tight" they would rip and become damaged while doing all the active/stunt things.

and yes, those are some amazing suits biggrin.gif

Nope, CR had a peak lapel, QofS was shawl.

Clearest picture I could find.

They have dozens of suits made for these movies - the suits in the action shots / worn by stuntmen are a few sizes bigger to accomodate movement. The silhouette in other scences that you, and others, have salivated over is that one I consider to be too tight.

I think the suit looks nice, but it was tight. You can tell from the shots where he is buttoned up and the sportscoat is cinching. That means it's too tight.

Don't get me wrong, I think he looks great in the suit, but it is a very form fitting suit. I wonder how comfortable that was for him.

That observation is why I think it looked too tight. Physique conforming and puckering with any movement aren't the same thing IMHO.

It's too tight, but she was going for the "2012-look" so I guess it's very much intended (still bonkers). Aside from chest/back, the seat needs to be wider, see the Mercedes Gelenderwagen/Motorbikes/Guns-scene. Trousers also seem quite short in some shots, might be unintended though (sail boat e.g.).

His physique is also more barrel-shaped than V-shaped, so it's really not the perfect body for a suit* (still a good body, lats are probably enhancing the V-shape a bit but wide hips are there to stay).

*Edit: a contemporary fitted suit. This is why Bond looks better in a classically cut suit rather than a 2012-styled B-Rep/J.Crew-slimididdly-dim suit.

Wide hips? Are you crazy? He has a 30 inch waist and a 42 inch chest, apparently. I know waist =/= hips; but nonetheless he doesn't have wide hips.

Anyway, these suits are a little tight, but I don't know if its possible to tailor a suit that isn't tight on a back his shape. If his back was loosened up there'd simply be loose fabric all over the place, because a muscular back like that has deep ridges, and thus isn't near-flat like a normal back. It might actually require a lot of padding everywhere to make things look 'normal' and smooth. And, of course, TF suits have hardly any padding, and are often in wafer-thin fabrics.

Also, I'd prefer wider lapels, especially for his build and the character's personality.

I think Bond should go for early 80s Armani; he'll flap around like a flag on a windy day.

Wide was perhaps not the correct term, but visually in relation to his chest/shoulders, it's pretty wide. Chest measurements are mainly more impacted by depth, which makes a big chest-2-waist ratio it not visible head on -, you want wide lats and naturally wide shoulders for the V-taper (combined with a small hip/waist, else you'll look seriously big and have trouble fitting into suits - think Arnold).

Given, the third is probably during bulking/off-season, but still.
