    Who said Craig is not getting more ass than a toilet seat? Normal folks don't care about a button pulling. The guy is a stud no doubt.

    We are talking about 5k suits created for Craig by one of the greatest designers of all time, fitted by top level master tailors. All things being considered, the new suits do not look "great". Pulling all over the place, to tight, etc. The point? One would think that Craig's suits would look flawless considering the resources put behind their design and execution.

    No one gives a shit if you are done with this site. Run along son, the grown ups are talking.

    Saw the movie a few days ago,



    The bad (IMO):

    Three button cuffs, with the final, larger (TF style) buttonhole unbuttoned for full sprez.

    Everything center-vented, including the dinner jacket.

    Suit pants too slim, don't drape probably, looks more like skinny jeans (see photo with overcoat above).

    Lapels too narrow for DC's build.

    Tab collar shirts.

    The narrow pin stripe of the London suit.

    Light blue, solid PS w/ light blue shirt.

    Didn't care for the leather detailing under the collar of the Billy Reid peacoat.

    Slim'ish ties, some w/ unpleasing colours/patterns.

    The good (IMO):

    Colour of the light grey Turkey suit.

    Midnight blue dinner jacket w/ cummerbund and white suspenders.

    The overcoat + charcoal scarf.

    The Barbour x To Ki To Scotland jacket.

    Only thought it was one suit but okay didn't know that.
    I would actually say the pants are little short one this one.. but that overcoat is awesome on him.

    a) not relevant. People are critiquing his tailor, not Craig
    b) I don't think anybody here thinks that he doesn't look great in that picture; just surprised that it isn't perfect given the high profile of the movie
    c) it's a forum on clothing; if you want to pick your style icons by the amount of women they've slept with, might I recommend the following:

    I'm extremely bias when it comes to my love of all things Bond. But even I will differ in the consensus that some shots show jackets with too much pulling I will try to enjoy the movie anyhow :)

    tie knots used: in Q of S is that a half windsor? I feel like it must be with that symmetry. In skyfall it may very well be a 4 in hand but they r so fuckin small it doesn't matter. As I am not a fan of anything but a sprezzed out 4 in hand for myself, I'm curious if any SFer's know if the 4 in hand doesn't have the prevalence in british style?

    Did you all notice at the beginning of the movie, that one cuff button on the suit was open, that was pretty nice if you ask me.

    Overcoat is way too short. Best overcoat was Brosnan in "world is not enough".

    Can't help but thinking of that new Men's Warehouse commercial every time I see a photo of Craig in this movie. The one where he's driving down the street talking about a modern suit for the modern man...

    I agree. Though the best overcoat, hands down, was Roger Moore's chesterfield in Live and Let Die.

    I think the best overcoat were by TF in QoS, although it's hard to see them in the movie. Those were not short and suited the character very well.

    Disagree, I actually think the overcoat is nice on him there. Since he is going for the slim fit in all clothing aswell should the overcoat be like that. I don't think a size bigger would like nice on him (he is not that old)

    Looked like new M at the end was wearing real TF - DB with big swooping lapels.
