    I still don't like Craig as James Bond... he looks too rough, not classic enough.

    Everything looks a bit too tight to me.

    The silver Aston Martin that makes a brief appearance. The original Bond car IIRC

    I love this. He's the early Bond complete with rough edges before they were smoothed over. His heartbreak and betrayal explains the later Bond's remove. Brilliant prequel. Can Craig segue into the later Bond? Time will tell.

    Ummm, unless you saw a completely different trailer than what was posted, these suits are seriously kick-ass and are made by who many consider the top designer right now.

    The costume designer explained her whole theory behind the wardrobe and how it was designed to account for Daniel Craig's physique. I don't get why people can't just appreciate it for what it is.

    If these same suits were for sale on B&S all hell would break loose. :confused:

    Ok. I don't doubt that you, and many others on SF, think those suits are 'seriously kick-ass.'

    I think an interesting question to ask would be how much input TF himself actually has in the design of the suits, as opposed to the costume designer. Based on previous discussions, it seems like the suits in Skyfall could be easily reproduced (meaning they don't particularly look like traditional TF suits).

    Examples:
    - Skinny lapels
    - Center vent
    - Conservative pattern

    I think somebody made the point that the suits look like BB fitzgeralds.

    Excellent suits. I don't like the microscopic knot on the tie though

    Isn't TF basically Zegna doing the Continental cut?

    Suit is NOT tight on him he has a slim/muscular build. If he started to increase inches on his suit then you guys would cry fowl that the suit is too big. I think alot of guys on the forum lost the meaning of what a suitd does its suppose to 'move' with you and be close to the skin without nut huggnig it. His suits are made to his specific body and no one else can wear his suit! it may look tight on him, but dont blame him for have a lean body vs others who might have a pear shape, enlarged chest, enlarged stomach etc....that cant wear such fitting clothes.

    Even if he wore a JoS bank suit tailored to his body it will still look good on him vs a person who is 350lbs buying a 6k dollar suit. Where folks would side with the 6k suit and say it looks nice only due to price tag.

    Seeing the crotch of trousers tear open is indeed comical, but I don't think the tone would quite go with the Bond franchise.


    On a sidenote, looks like a shawl lapel tux this time around. I think the other two Daniel Craig ones were both peak lapel.
