    I've heard that TF had to design the suits how the costume designer wanted...so he couldn't do the wide lapels or work his magic...And curious as to why the suits don't fit Craig as well this time

    having just seen the movie, and judging it possibly the best bond film ever-- tied or better than goldfinger, in my book-- I recant my prior statement. the suits looked fine, a little neck gapping notwithstanding. possibly in part due to a minimum of skinny-pantleg shots in the film, but they actually looked razor sharp in the film to me. WHAT A MOVIE!!!!!

    The collar gap is the mark of a terrible fit. I'm sorry, but considering the resources behind these suits it's a legit call out (to fashion nerds). If I was Ford I'd be embarrassed.

    Can't wait to see the movie!

    This. The awesomeness of the movie notwithstanding (and it was pretty incredibly awesome), a collar gap means it doesn't fit. Has nothing to do with a "fashionably slim" aesthetic or whatever the costume designer wanted. Just plain doesn't fit. I was shocked at this--even when he was standing still the suit was sitting a good inch away from his neck.

    And yeah, if I was Ford, I'd be furious.

    Now, Ralph Fiennes' suits... Those were nice.

    Though you cannot tell from that picture the details are not all correct; I saw the film this past weekend and one scene clearly shows that the jacket has a single center vent :censored:

    Anybody have luck finding the skyfall ties? I don't see them floating around like the QOS ties.
