    +1. Not a fan of this new look, it's pretty much the anti TF
    Not quit as eloquently.
    Absolutely. Just wish TF was being showcased to the millions that are going to see this film in all it's glory.

    These suits are terrible. Considering James Bond was actually what first got me into menswear, its very disappointing.

    They have gone for a very trendy look. In two years, it will look ridiculous. See Timothy Dalton's oversized 80's suits, or Roger Moore's bell bottoms. It doesn't age well.

    No, scratch that, it looks ridiculous now.

    I get that they need OTR suits so that they can buy 50 of them to replace those destroyed in filming... But can't they at least buy ones that fit? These look *awful*.

    The only good thing I have seen thus far is that the tuxedo is midnight blue. Too bad it doesn't fit and looks terrible on him.

    Well it's a modern time. And I couldnt disagree more with you. Daniel Craig wearing perfect fitted TF suits that looks awesome on him. You can't compare old bond movies with a totally diffrent outfit (more classic) then now.

    Did you want him to wear vintage clothing by Brioni in HD quality?

    I don't think many people agree with you that his suits look awesome on him, and they *certainly* are not "perfect fitted". I've got no problem with a more modern look--the TF suits in QoS weren't bad. These though? Look at the pulling at the waist, the bowing of the lapels, and the huge collar gap. That isn't "modern". That's not fitting.

    But the tux pic isn't from skyfall; it's a promo pic of him wearing Tom Ford. The fit looks better in the movie.

    Which fit are you talking about now in Skyfall? And as i've read many do not like it, I do and will stick to that.

    I'd have him in H&M-suits if they fitted better. These suits are on par with Dalton's 80's suits. I always cringe when I jog past a local ad for Skyfall.


    Fleming and Broccoli would be turning in their graves by now.

    Sorry, but it has to be Connery. Roger Moore introduced the safari suit.

    Roger Moore is the Bond most comfortable in a suit.

    And Daniel Craig has the worst looking face/head ever anyway. Wasn't he going to quit after P/QoS?

    These suits make me a sad movie goer. I don't mind slim fitting suits and narrower ties, it feels like a homage to the 60's Bond. Daniel Craig's look is also masculine and true to the original Bond look. These suits are ill fitting though. There is bowing and straining fabric all over, and that's never flattering.

    DB5 looks great, Craig doesn't.

    As someone else stated, he looks to be wearing a off-the-rack Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald suit.

    Please go back to the row.

    Casino Royale was a Brioni peak lapel. Quantum of Solace was a Tom Ford shawl. Craig must really like the TF (who wouldn't) as he's worn it to the Oscars and had it on in the Olympics opening ceremony sketch with Queen Elizabeth II.

    Yes the shawl tuxedo in QoS and SF is Midnight Blue. DC also wore it to the Oscars and in the Olympics sketch w/QEII.

    I couldn't agree more with you all that the skinny lapels/tie are so non Bond. QofS suits were excellent- not exactly the uber wide lapels of Tom Ford, but a classic (what looked like 3.5") width which will never be out of style.

    In regards to the fit, I think it would be prudent to wait until the movie actually comes out, no? some shots obviously show the bowing of the lapels yes, but any trim suit will swiftly do that with a lot of movement. in the first shot posted in this thread, when he is just standing there, it fits flawlessly. If you have this type of physique, it's my belief that you should wear your suits as slim to the body as you can, but BEFORE it starts to pull. I have a comparable drop to Mr Craig, and it flatters my physique to do so, and it also chic to do so, IMO.

    so, let's wait a bit before thrashing the fit (until the 9th) and we'll recheck it then. However.... skinny(ish) lapels/tie/tie knot needs to go.
