    I use to work out heavily, weights only. I was up to 190lbs of muscle, 245+ bench, all at 5'11. I pretty much only do body weight exercises now, as that much muscle looked poor on my smaller frame. I bench 200ish now, at 170lbs, and have a much smaller body, much leaner. If I don't lift, I lose size very quickly.

    "Crockett & Jones Tetbury
    In the Turkey actions scenes in SkyFall (2012), James Bond (Daniel Craig) wears Crockett & Jones Tetbury chukka boots. The shoes are also worn in the Shanghai scenes. The Tetbury shoes worn by Bond are made from the finest antique nubuck with Dainite rubber soles. The Tetbury is also available in dark brown, or in brown or black suede."

    What is antique nubuck? Is that like reclaimed Naugahyde?

    Yes sir. That was my point exactly, but you seem to retain power better than me, i was at 315 6 reps when i was power lifting but when I'm on a body weight routine i can barely do 200 aside from being visibly smaller.

    I'd never watched a full James Bond movie, but a friend wanted to see it, so I saw it today. It was actually pretty good...better than I expected...nice suits and coats too.

    Problem it's not a James Bond movie anymore. He doesn't use gadgets, and the women "seductions" are kept to a strict minimum. Plus he seems to be crying all the time.

    Disagree; still uses gadgets and he didn't cry in skyfall. In fact, he got pissed off a few times in the movie whenever he got shot or his car blew up.

    I think Skyfall is my favorite Bond movie. I really liked Javier Bardem as Silva. He reminded me a lot of a spanish Joker and he was totally freaky as shit. Everyone here complains about Bond's suits but the reality is they weren't dressing him to impress any of you. The average joe has no idea what a properly fitting suit looks like but the current trend is having everything fitting very slim so most people who see this movie will think he looks great.

    As for the gadgets, I'm surprised he didn't have any with him like he used to there's no innovation apart from the sort of personalized handgun, but there's still plenty of drama.

    I like how they didnt give him any gadgets. I always thought it was a little bit annoying how they would introduce some weird gadget that he somehow had a specific need for but never used ever again in any other movie. Its funny how the James Bond from the novels is so different from the Bond in the movies. The new movies remind me more of the novels than the cliche movie Bond we have all gotten to know over the years. As a fan of the novels vs the films I am very happy about the direction they are taking.

    I loved the movie too. I'm a big bond fan, movies and novels, and I definitely felt it was top three of the movies.

    Bond didn't really go overboard with gadgets until Thunderball. Even in Goldfinger the gadgets were plausible apart from the Aston (the mods to the car in the novel were more realistic, though perhaps not on an Aston per se).

    Generally, I enjoyed Skyfall, but it seemed like a "reboot of a reboot" which seemed unnecessary to me. Plus it had a lot of tropes from superhero movies and spy tv shows like 24 and Spooks, when the tropes from previous Bond films and novels would have sufficed, as they always have.

    Hopefully the wardrobe in the film will extend the life of the tight suit trend as that way I will save money...

    From what I've heard and read he didn't pay anything. Like Brioni before them they didn't pay to have their suits featured they were picked by the costume designer and or actor (Daniel craig personally requested Tom Ford for QoS). You can pretty much tell which brands paid to be featured i.e unnecessary close ups of the watch when driving. And which ones didn't i mean besides a garment bag lying down on the bed with the brioni wording barely visible and a split second shot of him taking his tuxedo off showing the brioni tag and same with tom ford in QoS you never really see the brands. Besides if it was about money Armani who was also considered for Goldeneye would have beat out Brioni

    really? i liked the movie but not to the point where i was dying to see it again like with Casino Royale or Goldeneye. I mean i enjoyed sky fall but i really wouldn't be bothered if the next time i saw it was on blu ray/dvd next year unlike with CR where i was dying to see it again.

    Its funny because on first viewing I enjoyed Skyfall more than Casino Royale for a number of reasons, but I would prefer rewatching CR over Skyfall any day.

    The Portofino Cuff always looked good on the suave but masculine Sean Connery.

    Mr Craig could also pull this off without looking a dandy.
