1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    No, I take pity on him, as while he acted the part well his costuming was unfortunate. Everyone agrees he was the worst dressed Bond.

    I would be cautious - 625 gbp for MTM in Mayfair is low, and they do refer to the product as "special order" - perhaps it's just a stock special?

    On the bespoke front, from what I've seen in a few videos, the Meyer & Mortimer duo seem to cut their suits (for which they tack on an upcharge to M&M's bespoke price). I would be hesitant to call this the original 'source' for Sinclair-style tailoring, without first learning more.

    QoS were TF ties. If you are talking about CR then it was Turnbull & Asser and ted baker

    In Casino Royale he wears all ties from Brioni? T&A shirts and a pair of Ted Baker linen pants yes, that's it. QoS I know nothing about, so you may have right there.

    From googling, I still don't see any skinny ties for QoS. And Olga is still delicious.

    The Special Order description does say there are 2 fittings.

    No the suits/dinner jacket from Brioni. The ties were T&A and ted baker. The tie he wore when he first met mathis with the charcoal suit is from ted baker. They ID'ed it over on the james bond forums. QoS almost everything was TF except the shoes which were church's and jeans from levis and a jacket from prada.

    Jeans were 7FAM. White pants in Haiti were Levi's though. Always thought those looked good.

    You are right. The jeans he wore to the opera before finding a perfectly fitting tuxedo were 7's. My bad. Although i think the pants he wore in Haiti were actually white jeans.

    There, as well as later in Bolivia infiltrating the hotel.

    In Haiti they were an older style not produced by Levi's anymore - a 5-pocket type pant, but not a "jean" per say. I want to say it was called the 306 STA-PREST.

    Number of fittings is irrelevant imo. Its how good the person fitting you is, if they get it right the first time its pointless doing 2-3 more, Also on the other side of the scale if they give you 10 fittings but still can't get it right that doesn't work out very well either. That being said he's not saying what they offer is bad he's just saying be careful as its unusually cheap for the area its in.

    The original source for Sinclair-style tailoring was the man himself, who died in 1992.

    The "Anthony Sinclair" available today is a brand created/revived by an entrepreneur, who claims to have borrowed one of the original Sinclair Bond suits for inspiration. I have no experience with this firm, and can't make any claims, one way or the other, about the quality of its product. But even an extremely well-executed copy of the original suit is, by definition, not the "original source."
