wait, why?    D.C in a skinny suit with short pants does?rotflmao.gif 

it has to be Vinnie Jones in Brioni. he has the ability to be suave, and easily as tough as D.C.

Well..... He is 44, i.e. closer to 40 than 50, but I would agree that he is in better shape than most guys regardless if they are 20 or 50.

because to 99% of the viewing public, tight-fitting clothing draws attention and lends the notion of "custom" and "tailored"
like when long narrow point collars came back due to inception? (the other "suit" movie)
my opinion... women find him hot because of the image. bond = sexy , suave. blockbuster movie star = powerful. its mostly mental. bet they didnt think the same of him in his previous roles... DC isnt exactly a classically handsome man for hollywood standards

That's not my point.  If I am Tom Ford I am upset at massive collar gaps and pulling ill fitting suits.

Tight does not equate to terrible fits.  I see a million #menswear blogs where guys are wearing tight suits without collar gaps and a x men symbol of pulling on their waist.

 

Women find the guy hot for the same reason they find any celeb attractive (the ones who are average looking). Money and fame.

ask your your wife/GF her opinion.
I think TF had input on the fit. mostly likely his tailors were at the initial fittings.
The costume designer may have been looking for a very fitted suit.
it is possible that DC put on 10 pounds of muscle between fittings and shooting the film.
at that point they did not want to remake 100 or so suits that would have been made for DC and the stunt doubles.
I will keep you updated on requests for tab collars.

Thats what i was thinking, that he put on 10 or so pounds in between fittings on an already very fitted suit. I do have a feeling though that most people that think he's well dressed only do so because they already equate it in their mind that bond= well dressed, so even though the fit is off people think that is the correct way simply because it is Bond

Pierce Brosnan was the best dressed Bond. D.C is a casting mistake. should have been Clive Owen, or Vinnie Jones.Shit, even Noel Fielding!

 

So you sold your suit because of how the same brand fit someone you saw at the movies?

James Bond should not have been put in a single vented suit. I demand to speak with a manager!

It is highly unlikely that Craig put on 10lb of lean mass between fittings. I also highly doubt he lets himself fluctuate to that degree considering he is an avid weight lifter.  Even a limited maintenance routine would spare that kind of loss. Do you realize how much mass 10lbs of muscle is?  Go stack 10 lbs of lean chicken breast to get an idea. Craig would have to totally stop weight training for a long time to lose 10 lbs of muscle.

 

It's a pretty simple equation, I think. Ford made a rare mistake and didn't totally control the QC and design of these suits. The O'Connor was built for Craig. It fits like crap. A Collar gap on a 5k bespoke suite within a film noted for the clothing? Yikes.

Yeah, it would be one thing if it was some run of the mill movie that just happened to have suits in it. But it's James Bond, the suits are a big part of its heritage. To screw them up this bad, especially in an otherwise great movie, is a Bad Thing. And now I'm sure we'll have more people thinking that is how a suit is supposed to fit, which is maybe the worst part. So many people already have a bad enough time knowing what fits, they didn't need this to make it worse!

And let's hope the tab collar shirts aren't back, but compared to the suits, I can deal with that.

I have seen actors fluctuate both ways depending on schedules.
these suits could have been started 3-4 months prior to shooting.
he may have started Testosterone treatments to bulk up as well.
so anything is possible.
or maybe they wanted ill-fitting suits.

I mean he could  have added 10 lbs of mass due to muscle memory over that time if he had totally stopped training perhaps a year out, but, again, I highly doubt that is the case as his photos have been consistent over the last couple years. You don't jus add 10 lbs of muscle if you've ben training consistently, that is a huge amount of mass. Folks who are fit tend to at least maintain maintenance  traning schedules when cutting back on the lifting.

 
Sure, he could have used test and other agents to gain mass quick, but there would have been a lot of bloat and his physique does not reflect any abuse to me. Doubt it.
 
Most the evidence simply points to TF producing shitty suits this time out.

Christian bale is a different situation. No one is saying that is is impossible to gain weight quickly. My point, you're not gaining 10 lbs of LEAN muscle in 3 months without drugs (or unless you've stopped training and already have that base to recover via muscle memory). Another example would be if someone has never trained before, the body will react with the production of muscle quickly, but after you've hit a certain point, the body gains lean mass much more slowly, naturally of course.  

 

There is no evidence to support Craig went through a massive physique change over the last year. Ford simply produced crappy garments this time out. Its a shame as his original stuff was/is awesome.

Actually, they weren't too bad for the most part. I wasn't paying too close attention because I was too busy raging over the suit fits, but they weren't bad from what I remember. And they avoided the nasty self-stripe shirts that were so prevalent in Casino Royale, so thats a plus too.

Just saw the movie. Because of this thread, I was watching the suit rather than following the movie. happy.gif

Anyhow, my impression:

-Bowing lapel
-Short jacket
-Skinny tie
-Collar gap

I think if the jackets are an inch or two, his overall look would be a lot more timeless.

But then again, if you have a license to kill, I doubt anyone will say anything about his outfit to his face foo.gif
