    just lookin at the new stuff for Skyfall-- has anyone seen the new TF narrower width ties available, which appear to be the ones they're using for Bond this time round? I wouldn't mind owning one or two in the narrower width (I noticed even kiton had a selection of narrower ties avail at saks this month, which also looked really good)

    I bought of couple of TF ties this winter from the store at Harrods, and they were 3" slim already. I think there have always been slim-ish ones available in TF stores. But yeah, the Skyfall-slim ones I've haven't seen around yet, but I suspect they will have them in the TF store if you ask.

    thanks-- but hoping someone might spot them at a saks, bergdorf, NM, or another location. I don't shop at TF stores, would rather get them from my favorite larger stores like those listed (also, at least i get some points toward a future gift card....:) )

    The shoes look like derby boots, I actually tracked down the brand that makes them (or at least a near-perfect replica of them), but I can't seem to remember the website. I think pairing those boots with the suit is probably going to be seen by most as an edgy call, despite the fact that wearing a suit with boots is classic. I think they fit great with the cut and style of the suit, and it's very trendy at the moment to pair this type of combination, so I think it makes sense.

    Just as an aside on my personal views regarding the suit itself: I've always preferred slim, close-cut clothing, so seeing Tom Ford produce these close-cut, immaculately fitting suits is, in my opinion, a dream come true for me. I would kill to get a suit cut that perfectly; I don't think it fits too close or pulls, as some have mentioned on other forums. When Bond is seen moving around (in the Skyfall costume video blog), the suit looks just fine to me. It's all too easy to criticize a still-frame picture, but the suits look great when he's moving around. If anyone can pull off a slim suit, it's Daniel Craig. He definitely has the physique for it!

    As a modern man, I think Bond should reflect the day and age in which he lives, as every Bond has done before him. That means recognizing trends but also keeping with classic styles. General perception on the Internet (in other forums, blogs, etc.) seems to indicate in this case that these suits are too-fashion forward. I really don't have a huge problem with them, though. I think they fit as they're intended--to maximize his physique. That goes against what some would call traditional tailoring, but apparently the suits are very well-made and nearly indestructible. I think it's a fair bet to say that this look won't age terribly in the foreseeable future, and that within the next year or so, we'll continue to see some of these suiting trends stay in vouge. Especially jackets with three buttons, rolled to look like a two-button opening.

    The Skyfall movie should be interesting as style watchers will probably soak in all the suit styles that will be featured there.

    I bet the wardrobe will be extensively talked about for a long time on here.

    Im not really a big fan of the TF suits made for QoS, even though i prefer TF to Brioni nowadays i still think the stuff in CR was better. I saw the new suits for sky fall the "O'conner" model and i like these even less than the QoS ones.

    Now let's wait for it and see, don't judge by the trailer. He will not wear only 1 suit in the movie.

    I knew Tom Ford was employed for Quantum, but I was under the impression he did Casino Royale as well...?

    And who equipped JB in the early stages, say '60 - '80?

    This suit is my ideal. Been looking at the wrong designer the whole time!

    Anthony Sinclair for Connery, Douglas Hayward for Roger Moore. No idea who did it for Dalton.

    Dalton was outfitted By John Lewis, judging from the way he looks. You could say he was the most, uh, distinctive dresser of all the Bonds.
