Plus, DC is pretty jacked and they wanted to bring in the female viewers by showing off his physique (have you noticed in every movie he's shirtless in at least one scene?). Maybe the costume designer wanted to show that the "old" agent could wear a younger cut - a common theme in the movie, old vs new. I bet that a majority of people probably didn't even notice any details other than the simple fact that Bond is wearing a suit. What % of the population a) knows who Tom Ford is, or b) knows that Tom Ford did these suits? My guess is <10% for both.
On the flipside, if you think Bond's suits are too tight, are you head over heels about Ralph Fiennes' attire? He appeared to have a much more traditional cut, including the scene when he is warning M where he has on some pretty full cut, higher waisted pants with braces.
sorry if this is snarky. threads like this crack me up.
Take a glance at the entire thread. It covers most of what you mentioned above.
At the end of the day, a collar gap and monster pulling on a bespoke TF suit is laughable considering what went into the OConner's production. TF himself said the suite was MADE for Craig and that Craig had extensive feedback in it's design. One would think Fords tailors could fit him at least decently.
BTW, Craig is in shape but he is not jacked to the level where OTR is out of the question, simple put, he's not unfitable.. He's got the physique of any gym rat with average genetics who diets and trains seriously.
I'd be pissed if I was TF. Collar gaps on a 5k suit, LOL.
