    Hi Everyone!

    My question is now that I want to have the James Bond wardrobe. And I need little professional help.

    How do I get the perfect suits, what kind of shirts (collar,coulor), I know that some ties are from Brioni? What knot do I use?
    And then we have the little more casual clothes maybe some sweaters in cashmere and what not?

    What do I need to buy (brands) and how to use it to have the perfect style.

    He wore Tom ford in Quantum of solace and hes wearing it again in the new film. from Goldeneye-Casino Royale his suits were Brioni, Ties and shirts are Turnbull and Asser. Shoes for Casino royale were john lobb, and the others were Church's. Moore, Dalton, Lazenby i dont think you wanna touch their wardrobes with a 10 foot pole. Connery was off the row bespoke Anthony sinclair of conduit street and shoes were john lobb

    Connery was the conduit cut. Brosnan was Brioni Millenio (sp?) Craigs tuxedo was a Brioni Spartaco in midnight blue, his suits were also Brioni but im not sure what model, im guessing Nomentano. Craig in the new films are tom ford im not sure what Base it is but if you go to the store its the notch lapel tropical wool, 3 roll 2 model, they still have it in there as off 2 days ago.

    well connery and brosnan were solid white or light blue shirts. Craig had a variation of those in like a shadow stripe or a very thing coloring stripe. Suits were always navy blue or charcoal maybe a light grey here and there. The shirts and ties were Turnbull and asser except for the newer films Quantum of Solace and the one coming out where it was Tom Ford. For the new film casual clothes i think craig wore levis jeans and the sweater from QoS was Tom Ford that video gives a look at the casual clothes, but he is right though i myself went through several cardigans until finally taking the plunge and getting the TF one.
