Kudos to @nabilmust for bringing it to wider forum attention. For all the wankery the average person associates with film criticism that New Yorker piece had laughs in equal measure.

 

Lane's dig at the Sam Smith theme tune was particularly great, which I shall reproduce here for a cheap chuckle. Regarding 'Writing's On The Wall', he writes Smith's "keening caterwaul sounds as if he had flicked the ejector switch but forgotten to undo his seat belt". Marvelous.

 

@Pink Socks, apparently the Cucinelli rig is actually not a suit. Jacket separate with tonally similar trousers according to some James Bond costuming website.

Even with the discount, these are seriously expensive items. The Nasomattos are only 30ml, although they are extrait, so you only need a dab. Duro, Pardon and Black Afgano are the stars of the line for mine, but I wouldn't call any of those summer frags. I have BA, and it's a deep and warm cannabis scent; Duro and Pardon I think would also be too full-on for summer. I also have Silver Musk and definitely think that's a good one for the hot weather, but it is just a linear musk, so you have to like musk.

Amouage has some absolute stars like Epic, Memoir and Jubilation XXV. IMO most of their line tends to be built around incense, so you need to like that. Ciel, Reflection and Silver would be their best warm weather fragrances.

With any fragrance that costs this much, ask for a sample and wear it on skin on a few different occasions. Only buy it if you love it and, even then, think about getting into a split or buying a partial bottle on eBay. If Mens Biz won't give you a sample, the Amouage desk at DJs almost certainly will.

Read that too but the writer seemed quite unsure. Either way best kit in the film. Along with the ivory DJ.

Thanks mate. I checked out the prices after I posted and nearly had the vapours. Serious coin indeed.

When I saw it I didn't think it was a suit. Seemed liked separates to me. Good look though. Also liked M's DB pinstripe.

Tbf, Fiennes didn't have to do (much) stunt choreography.

 

I'm beginning to see why Hemming made the move to Brioni all those years ago, increasing the prospect of the Bond actors engaging in more of their own high octane stunts.

 

Really great rigs on M though.

One and the same, or just a coincidence?

Ah, so you admit DR has giant balls then?

I need to get better at this form of internet fencing.
