    Wait, you smell that?
    

    That is strange. Don't almost all the euros drive stick? I know requesting an automatic rental car in Europe is pretty much laughable. Or did he just not drive?

    It's a tough one, or it was, to find. The Tom Ford was like $1500 USD, and anyone who made a shawl collar cardigan that looked even slightly similar or classic looking wanted like $300+ so I settled on the Club Monaco wool version a few years ago and it's still holding up. Surprisingly good quality.

    Cashmere

    You may need to swap out the buttons on a couple of those.

    Hope that helps and I'll stay on topic from this point on.

    Bond wore Billy Reid's Navy Pea Coat in Skyfall with white shirt, dark tie and grey trousers. (I'm fresh out of Walther PPK's and Omega Seamaster's, though). [​IMG] Apparently Daniel Craig loved the coat and convinced the producers to let him wear it in the Shanghai scenes. I'm sure Billy Reid was quite pleased as he sells it as the "Bond Pea Coat" now. Had to get one for my son as a college graduation present as he kept "borrowing" mine. I never see much Billy Reid on SF. Fantastic designer from Florence, Alabama who creates classic menswear with a Southern Gothic twist. I don't have any of his suits but plenty of outerwear, shirts, ties and shoes.
