    The crappy Tom Ford suits don't ruin the rest of the movie. Skyfall was excellent, but boy the suits were pretty awful. They don't look any better in this new film, unfortunately.

    The suits might have been better in Casino Royale (love the midnight blue tux), but Skyfall was so much better plot/acting-wise.

    ^ +1

    Both films were good, and the CR suits were much better, but Skyfall was the better film overall IMO, I agree.

    The Casino Royale suits and tuxedo was made by Brinio, it was then replaced by Tom Ford in QOS

    Although the fit of this navy windowpane suit looks similar like Skyfall, but I do like three piece peak lapel suit Daniel Craig during shooting in Rome

    Question,

    Lots of people have shat on the suits, which is perfectly fine. I think the suits are pretty good but I understand the criticisms

    My questions is though, what is the IDEAL fit/style that y'all want to see Bond wear? The Brioni joints from Casino Royale or something else?

    Pics definitely appreciated.

    Connery and Brosnan (as well as Craig in CR) were outfitted, for the most part (barring the odd exception) well and appropriately. Moore was best dressed as Bond in his early films. Lazenby was also well suited in his one go as the character.

    Craig's suits in QOS were some of the best since Connery. The casual wear was also great with the Harrington jacket and the Steve McQueen invoking shawl collar cardigan. The Dinner jacket was also one of the better ones Bond ever wore. It was a classic midnight blue shawl collar with pagoda shoulders. The fits of everything were impeccable in QOS as well. Casino Royale and Skyfall were by far better films but QOS's wardrobe was on point.

    Wasn't the script leaked for this (in the sony hacking scandal)?

    Yes. However there are always changes during filming and those of us that want to wait for the movie

    The script leaked was an early draft, apparently, much different to the finished product.

    Craig's TF clothing, from QoS onwards (including that film), have been universally bad. Ill-fitting ugliness.
