    It was posted by Master Tailor Darren Beaman, who used to participate on the forums but now, after quite the kerfluffle, does not. I last saw him over at Film Noir Buff's.

    You can do a search if you want more info.


    Good thing we have a Doc around, doing it right now!

    Is that Dr. No? If so, it's my favorite movie in the series. But I think the clothes still take a backseat to Goldfinger.

    If only OHMSS had followed Goldfinger and starred Sean.

    Then they could have done a sequel where Sean teams up with Steed, thus creating the best movie ever made.

    OHMSS for the clothes or for the film? The film is probably the best in the series; the clothes are good too, but more dated than those of the Connery films that preceded it.

    [​IMG] Soft shoulders. A bit of drape. Medium lapels. High-ish gorge. Gray. But, I also think this is a "best", so don't listen to me. [​IMG]

    I believe that he uses mitsuru strano (www.strano.jp), but don't know if this suit is from there.

    Thanks, never would've imagined someone would know the tailor!
    By the way who is "he"? A celebrity of some sort?
