So I went to see the movie last night. First off, regardless of what I may think of the clothes, it was a *great* Bond movie. No criticisms there. But, we're not here to talk about the actual movie, so on to the clothing...
The suits were for the most part just as bad as feared. Everything was too tight, *WAY* too short, both jackets and trousers, and worst of all, every single suit he wore, *every* one, had a huge 1+" collar gap, even when he was just standing there and not moving. It was truly mind boggling--that isn't in any way even a style thing. A collar gap, especially one that big = doesn't fit, any way you slice it. I have seen better fits from H&M suits. It was appalling. Also, why would they go with a suit with a single vent and that slim of a fit? The vent just split open all the time and looked ridiculous.
Now, all the outfits weren't bad. Ralph Fiennes' suits were fantastic. And the outfit he wore in Scotland with the waxed cotton coat was great. But yeah, on the whole, don't go see it expecting to see some nice fits.
Really, Tom Ford should be furious. If I were a naive movie goer and saw those suits, I would steer way, way clear of anything and everything with his name on it. As it is, his stuff isn't my style, but I have seen fits from him were I can at least appreciate what they were going for. But this stuff was just awful.
