    Fascinating and fun. Thanks, Marc. I think especially to men of my generation (I believe Dr. No came out just as I was turning 21) Bond has been pretty much the ultimate symbol of masculine elegance and style.

    There are egregious moments in the sartorial history of Bond-- the baby blue terrycloth apres-swim romper in Thunderball, the safari suit in The Spy Who Loved Me, and the cheesily incongruous turtleneck/tweed used-car salesman outfit in Diamonds are Forever. But for every clinker there are a hundred iconic moments.

    Still, I must admit to precisely the same viewpoint. Around my household and office, it's called "Rule 007", which reads "if you can't imagine JB wearing it, then don't wear it either."
