James Bond is one of the most sartorially sophisticated gentlemen in the world, and we think you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who disagrees. The man has style; whether he’s dressed down in a Sunspel polo shirt or dressed to the nines in eveningwear from Tom Ford, he always looks impeccable. We’re taking our favourite pieces and products from Bond films past and present to create the ultimate shopping style guide for Bond fans everywhere.
The suit is perhaps the number one garment most synonymous with James Bond: it’s undoubtedly the item he is most frequently seen in – and he definitely wears it well. Bond has always worn the most impeccably tailored and incredibly designed suits, and the recent release of Spectre sees Daniel Craig sporting some beautiful Tom Ford evening wear, such as this one.
James Bond is undoubtedly the king of eveningwear, and every gentleman should understand the importance of keeping each item stylish, slick and smart. So, what better to accompany a beautiful suit than the actual Turnbull & Asser shirt worn by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale?
THE POLO SHIRT
Every gentleman needs appropriate attire for the more casual times in his life, and for those times there’s nothing better than a proper, well-made polo shirt. This Riveria polo from Sunspel is the exact one that Daniel Craig wore in Casino Royale and is guaranteed to keep you looking sharp at every turn.
Every man deserves to have an incredible velvet evening jacket in his life, and why not ring the changes and step it up with this modern take on a classic like this shawl lapel tailored jacket by John Lewis, which was inspired by the one Daniel Craig wore in Spectre.
No Bond outfit would be complete without a beautiful watch and Omega are the brand for the job – namely their classic and timeless Seamaster Aqua Terra. Make like Bond and invest in a beautiful timepiece that will become synonymous with you and your style.
Shoes are perhaps the most important part of any gentleman’s outfit and there are few pairs that live up to Bond’s expectations. The Alex by Crockett & Jones will make the perfect addition to any wardrobe; they are slick, sturdy and will look amazing when paired with that beautiful Tom Ford eveningwear.
Every gentleman should have a smell that defines him; that people will associate with him and that’s as powerful and polished as he is. A personal favourite of both James Bond and Ian Fleming himself is Floris’ No.89 fragrance which is the very definition of a quintessential British gentleman.
Every businessman who travels frequently must have an incredibly made and wonderfully designed bag in his life. Globe-Trotter is one of the best suitcase makers in the world and having featured in Spectre, we would highly recommend investing in one.
