I am a huge le Carre fan, although I did find that he got a bit strident and hectoring in his later books. His dislike for America, and the CIA, got a bit tiresome, whether justified or not (and I have no idea if it was). I recall that George Smiley always wore ill-fitting expensive clothes, but I don't remember it being a tailor scheme to get him to pay for extra fabric. Do you recall where that was mentioned? I find it hard to believe any real-life tailor would do that. I am currently reading the big biography of le Carre. It was "authorized" by le Carre (David Cornwall, in real life), but he doesn't always come across as such a swell guy.Any Le Carre (RIP) fans? His spies are all the brutality and calculation, with none of the clothes, cars, or women. Just angry, petty and/or simply bored little men playing their lethal games with each other, never mind who gets hurt in the process. George Smiley does wear bespoke at least, but it's all oversized and sloppy as part of his tailor's scheme to get him to pay for extra fabric.
only the first Daniel Craig JB "Casino Royale" was still Brioni and Turnbull & Asser for shirts I believe. Afterwards all Daniel Craig JB movies were TF.Yes, I think TF has done all of Daniel Craig's Bond suits. Original comment mentioned BB, though. Just curious about that.
I personally don't like the austin powers movies and always find the "funny jokes" in previous James bond movies annoying. Leave the stupid humor to the avengers.I like Craig’s Bond. He was asked why his Bond is so humorless and mentioned that Austin Powers killed their ability for anything other than an ironic quip.
