Yeah I saw a bunch of whites and blue tab colors at BB too that were marked down to like $39.90 and still not sold a few months ago

If they are going to go for awful suits, they might as well go all the way!

I'm surprised that the managed to disapoint in the suiting for skyfall; the suits in Quantum were great (no collar gap and better silhouette). As somebody mentioned previously, the skyfall suits look like BB Fitzgeralds.

Random thoughts:

 

1) Craig is the best Bond since Connery.  I welcome the end of the effete pretty-boy Bonds.

 

2) The movie rocked.

 

3) The suits are ridiculous in terms of fit.  He's going to get sued when that closure button pops and hits someone in the eye.

 

4) The whole super slim-fit trend is ridiculous.  We will look back and laugh.  Hard.  A great many are laughing already.  I know I am. 

 

5) The slimmer the fit, the more likely the suit will gap, crease and pull at the first sign of movement.  If your day job is that of an emaciated department store mannequin, this type of suit is dfinitely for you.  If not, it probably doesn't work quite so well as you imagine.

 

6) I like a great many TF suits.  But these are so ill-fitting that it's hard to even tell what they should look like.

I find the focus on collar gap and pulling in this thread a little odd. I mean I really like most of the stuff Ford does and have great respect for him but haven't we all seen Ford appear in public himself with generous collar gap and pulling at the waist, no?

I personally don't think Ford is all that concerned with such details. It's not like most folks can tell or care about the difference anyways. Outside this forum I haven't heard anyone mention his suits either (good or bad). The only person to say something about the fits was my wife and only to nag me (she couldn't care less).

This is a forum full of menswear enthusiasts... Serious fit issues do not generally go unnoticed. You wouldn't buy a suit 2 sizes too large and then say "Well, whatever, most people won't notice." That's not the point.

I agree with everything you just wrote, but that wasn't my point. My point was that Ford has appeared numerous times in public wearing suits displaying the faults you see on Craig in Skyfall. This has been discussed before on this forum, so it should not be a surprise to anyone here.

I will look for the thread or photos posted here that discuss this

Ah, OK, I understand now, apologies for the confusion.

I am admittedly not much of a TF fan, so I can't say I have seen too many photos of him. However, the ones I have seen, while I may not have liked the cut, the suits at least fit. But, like I said, I wouldn't really know. All I know is the suits in Skyfall didn't fit worth a damn smile.gif

Same here. It's awesome.

Appreciate the discussion here.

I've personally been a single vent fan so it was nice to see them in the movie as an alternative to double vents (yes, yes, even if the suits were ridiculously tight to begin with). Thought the color palates were great too in general.

I think, for the marketing force that Bond movies have become, all these little things are intended more for the slob to look at and go, "oh - there's a point up from my overly baggy suit I wear to the office each day." I think that'll be highlighted by the tight "Bond" look for the next few years. The extreme nature of his clothing makes it all the more noticeable to the menswear(nohashtag) layman than the perfectly fitted stuff from CR, for example.

Don't get me wrong. The scene where DC looks at himself in the Vesper-tux in CR was absolutely fantastic. But seeing Craig in these things now, as #menswear is picking up steam in the USA (at least), it's probably meant at least to some degree to sell things. Sell the tight suit. Sell the tab collars. Sell the cropped peacoats, etc. And in that regard, I think the movie will do spectacularly.

I know one of the first things I looked up the next day was the Billy Reid cropped peacoat. Also had to do a double take at the Barbour Beacon (sans hood, surely).

I'm surprised that no one has said anything about Javier Bardem's cream jacket/brown vest/brown pants combination yet (good, bad, or indifferent). I have to admit that it looked pretty strange to me, but I suppose that's the goal with Bond villian wardrobe choices.

 

 

At least he looked fairly relaxed in it, unlike Bond...
