It feels like it’s all go at the moment, doesn’t it? We’re all back to work, for one; we’re getting our wardrobes ready for autumn, for another. Last week it was the Monaco Yacht Show; this weekend it’s the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe — and this week, of course, needs no introduction. We all know that a certain film finally, finally hits our screens today: and so to celebrate, we’ve put together a selection of Editor’s Picks worthy of 007 himself.
Bond personified: Sunspel Riviera Polo Shirt
Essentially, it’s James Bond style stitched into one stylish, sophisticated shirt. You’ll no doubt recognise it from Daniel Craig’s debut in Casino Royale; and with No Time To Die screening in cinemas (at long last), there’s no better way to celebrate this momentous week than by emulating Bond’s style to the very best of your ability. Luckily, this Sunspel Riviera Polo shirt will enable you to do just that.

Setting sail: Riva 68' Diable
It made an appearance at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021; and it’s just the sort of yacht on which we can easily imagine Daniel Craig’s Bond happily sunning himself, in between missions to save both queen and country. With sleek exterior styling courtesy of Officina Italiana Design and a windshield forged from spherical crystals and the subtle counter-curvature typical to Riva: it’s a must-have open yacht that’ll have yachting enthusiasts talking about it for years to come.

Back to work: New & Lingwood Grey Flannel Single Pleat Trousers
As the autumn weather sets in, this trusty pair of trousers is likely to become a stellar wardrobe staple. With a napped texture and heathered aesthetic, they’re blissfully comfortable; and they can be paired with a seemingly endless array of blazers, knitwear and jackets. Just the thing for both the office and the sitting room.

Best foot forward: Crockett & Jones James Black Calf
You’ll no doubt have guessed from the name; but this shoe is a 007 limited edition and, as such, just the show with which to welcome the new film. In true Crockett & Jones fashion, it’s made from the very finest box calf and crafted from the smallest skins with an impeccably tight break. It’s fully leather lined and bears an all-black interior with a silver foiled logo; so, in other words, it’s a 007 shoe down to the very last detail.

Deck the walls: Pop Trading Company Hugo Snelooper Print
Autumn is a time to address your personal style, of course; but in all the wardrobe furore, be careful not to neglect your interiors. A modern man should ensure the walls in his home are unfailingly stylish and enviably elegant at all times; and this limited-edition print of a particularly risky railslide by one of Amsterdam’s picturesque bridges is the perfect addition to your home interior.

Button up: Officine Générale Andre Double-Breasted Wool-Twill Coat
Like it or hate it, autumn has well and truly arrived. We can’t ignore that nip in the air any longer; but, happily for you, Officine Générale’s classic Andre coat will banish any negativity surrounding the onset of these colder, shorter days. It’s sophisticated, refined and undeniably suave; and with that dense wool-twill, you won’t have to fear the cold, rain or snow. On the contrary; you’ll be practically racing outside each morning, just for a reason to wear this debonair coat.

Shade your eyes: Aimé Leon Dore Gallo Sunglasses
Autumn has arrived, certainly; but that doesn’t mean the sun’s gone anywhere. The heat may be dissipating, but that radiant glare is as bright as ever. So don’t disperse with your sunglasses, gents; instead, invest in one of the three colours available as part of Aimé Leon Dore’s stylish Gallo range. With options including tortoiseshell and green or black acetate, you’ll be well prepared to handle any garish rays that the unreliable British sun chooses to send your way.

Dial in: Nokia XR20
It’s sleek; it’s shiny; it’s technologically brilliant; and it’s partnered with No Time To Die. This glossy collaboration is no surprise, really; the screen is forged from the brand’s toughest glass yet, and it’s resistant to virtually anything. Water, scratches, drops, dogs — you name it, this phone can handle it. Seems like just the sort of phone 007 himself would rely on; and if your schedule is anything like as hectic (and adventure-filled) as Bond’s, it’s just the phone for you, too.
Embrace the retro look: Puma Suede Crepe Trainers
We can’t emphasise enough that the retro trend is one you’ll really want to be on board with; and looking at these trainers, you’ll presumably be able to see why. With a butter-soft suede coating, together with tonal Foamstrips and sidewall perforations for all the airiness a day of energetic activity requires, these trainers present a classic look while keeping your feet in soft, exquisite comfort.

Debonair style: Artknit Blue Navy Wool Bomber
To the uninitiated, a ‘wool bomber’ sounds a little like an oxymoron; but rest assured that this style offering from the ever-reliable Artknit has the power to send your autumn wardrobe into paroxysms of stylish, fashionable delight. Perfect for running those all-important city errands, its ribbed cuffs and genuine horn buttons are the proverbial cherries on top of what was already a supremely suave bomber jacket.
