    I did come across that on a James Bond website, but magnoli has no plans to offer again.

    Tom Ford still sells this cardigan, from his Tom Ford for James Bond collection. Call up a boutique, and take the $800 hit, if you really want that same cardigan.

    I don't think it was quite a Zhongshan suit that Drax was wearing, because they have two breast pockets with flaps and the buttons are not concealed.

    Of course Blofeld often wore them though.

    Haha it was like $1400 but i guess they raised the price. i think with tax included it as $1820. Probably the stupidest purchase of my life. But we all need to do one really stupid thing in our life eh? lol

    Once they sort out their "Knitwear department problems", it could well be back.

    Hey there,
    Can you please give me your review on this cardigan. I'm very interested in purchasing it from the TF. Is the quality there??

    Will be exchanged for Orlebar Brown in Skyfall, so at least that's a change in the right direction...

    Just saw an ad for a new line of Levi's STA-PREST pants, similar (though not exact) to what Craig was sporting in Haiti in QoS.

    AKAIK Levis invented the original poly cotton Sta Pressts worn by English mods in the early sixties. I took a look at these new versions and wasn't that impressed. They are heavier than the lightweight original Sta Pressts and have a canvassy feel to them rather than the smooth, cool poly cotton you would expect. They are also VERY small and skinny so caveat emptor if anyone looking in is thinking of buying them without trying them on. I passed on them, Adaptor Clothing has better ones which may not have the Levis cachet but are closer to the mark IMO.

    Casino Royale featured a more casual look for Bond thus makin g the outfits more accessible to your average joe.

    EDIT:

    Going back and thinking again, I suppose so - casual suit in the Bahamas, leather jacket/tshirt in Miami, cardigan and chinos on the yacht, etc.
