Re: Help!! Bond clothing is draining my bank account.

I just turned 25. Here’s my collection clothing wise..


1) Casio dive watch $50, included metal bracelet and rubber.

2) Spectre NATO $12

3) Walter PPK replica with silencer $28

4) Dark blue/black polos (frugal) $12 - $15 each.

5) Sperrys, on sale locally for $35.

6) Rolex Sub fake (prop display) $24.99

7) Leather jacket similar to one Craig wore $50 (Christmas gift).



My advice, find a way like I did to stay cheap. No reason to spend $300 - $500
for a jacket. Or $100 -$200 for a sunspel polo.



I will admit I love bond’s style and it got me to buy a real nice BMW at 21, I smoked cigars, listened to jazz and dressed like Craig’s Bond. I don’t cosplay but nothing wrong with wearing the polos, button ups sleeves rolled. Dive watch. Tortoise styled shades. I am definitely heavily influenced by Bond. I am 5’11, weigh around 160-165, work out a ton. I am very fit and make sure my clothes fit me.


One issue is I see a lot of these fans attempting to dress EXACTLY like Craig and it looks horrible. Craig wears a lot of tight clothing and has muscle. If you weigh 290 I don’t think you should be cosplaying. These people buy the exact same brands and spend thousands on the outfits.
