Thank you for finally taking time to look into the question.

For ready to wear stuff why not try the actual james bond brands? Try out Brioni (Goldeneye-Casino Royale), and Tom Ford (Quantum of Solace-Skyfall) for RTW suits they have pretty high armholes but if you really want the maximum amount of mobility you are gonna have to go for bespoke and not some 200 dollar 24 hour thing I'm talking the legit saville row/naples experience.

The fabric he needs would probably also need elastine for the level of mobility he's looking for.

You should go into Neiman Marcus, put some different suits on, fight some people and roll around the floor like you're James Bond to see how the suits keep up.

Is everything Daniel Craig wears in Skyfall by Tom Ford?  

I can't find anything that says otherwise.

Um...yes. Go on GQ and read the article where they interview the costume designer. Even the damn scarf is by Tom Ford.

As well as being bullet/bomb proof and wrinkle resistant so after a gun fight he can have martinis at the bar lol. But i don't think he's gonna actually be dancing in it he just wants something he can move around a bit in, and used bond as an example

I don't get why people have a hard time moving around in their suits, I've never had a problem with any of mine. All of mine are like silhouettes to my body and shape. Its like liquid wool was poured over me and molded around my ligaments.

Thinner fabric, slightly, helps too.

Here is an article, from the New York Times, about what New York City police detectives wear to both look as elegant as possible, but also to have maximum mobility, as well as the ability to conceal weapons, radio, badge, etc, without unseemly bulges: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/04/nyregion/04detectives.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

 

No, they don't look quite as dapper as James Bond, but they do look pretty good. Actually, in the Elliot Ness days, they were as dapper as James Bond. Anyway, the article might give you some creative ideas for having a suit tailored for mobility coupled with style.

Don't bother Tom Ford call a real Bespoke Tailor. The reason the shoulders are so binding and you can't move is because the suit is not cut for you. James Bond only wears true Bespoke. With a true Bespoke suit, you'll be swinging from the chandeliers.

Quoted for emphasis, thanks for sharing such a neat article.
