    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.
    Yep, that's Dr. No.

    It's my favourite as well. That, and From Russia With Love.

    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.

    That is stunning, but I agree with Vox. I am far from an expert on such matters, but this seems to be generally cleaner, both in the chest and arms, than a typical A&S coat, no? Vox?

    I've never liked the picture. This is what I picture Humpy Dumpy in bespoke.

    The suit makes him look like he's got a humongous head and tiny twiggy legs. Too much tapering with the pants.

    The suppressed waist looks very bad.

    If that is an Ill-fitting suit, I'd like to see your interpretation of a proper fit. After all, he only had film and tv's best tailors at his disposal.

    DB with pocket ticket, I like it, just add a bit twist.

    Yes, this DB is the shit. One of the best DBs I've ever seen; wish I was that thin to pull it off.

    I saw this photo on the sartorialist and showed it to my dandy friends and they loved it as well.

    Pretty sure this was it:

    This is another very famous "movie suit" in that it appears on a lot of Italian websites (again mostly seated):

    That's sick. I'm going to try to rent those movies. What Italian websites? Fora like SF?

    The buttoning irritates me. I like the suit and the cut, but why can't he button the top button instead of the lower button?

    Is that pinned or the actual shape? I've seen many a suit on a stand achieve that result but then fail miserably once all the pins are pulled.

    Not the biggest fan. It's almost over-tailored.

    Digging the A's so far. Agnelli and the Avenger.

    Over tailored? Wahhh?

    Sort of, think SF with 1990s Italian technology. That particular suit shows up in a lot of magazines. Loro di Napoli is one of the best Italian movies of all time, with or without suit. I'd definitely recommend it.

    Because it's a Kent style DB.

    I've always understood that a Kent DB is simply a four button, not specifically a 4x1. Does anybody else think that a 4x1 looks much sillier than a 4x2?
