Re: Clothing in the movie question

Hasn't been identified as far as I know but here's a replica.  Very reputable seller who most here know.  I'm sure he'd make the suit also if you want.

Also, Baron Boutique makes a replica of the suit and shirt.  I've heard bad things about the shirt but I can't remember what's been said about the suit. [link]http://www.baronboutique.com/movie_replica_2.htm[/link] Scroll down a bit.

Just did a search and this thread mentions a bit about the Baron Bahamas suit.  Not so good. [link]http://www.ajb007.co.uk/index.php?topic=30637[/link]  Try Magnoli.

Does anyone know where the pants or shoes came from or a close representation

100 for a custom shirt is pretty nice deal

Re: Clothing in the movie question

The pants are the same ones he's wearing when he gets off the plane(the blue/grey suit).  Don't know about the shoes though.  The Baron's site does the suit but they haven't had good reviews on that suit.  Need to say they have received good reviews on other things though.

Well we know that John Lobb made the black leather shoes for the casino/tuxedo scene in Casino Royale (The Luffield model to be precise). I would guess that it would make sense for them to supply the footwear for DC for the rest of the movie. I heard for the Bahamas arrival, Bathroom fight and M's apartment DC wore the John Lobb Romsey boots.

Re: Clothing in the movie question

im almost positive he is wearing lobb luffields in brown suede when he first gets to the hotel.  its not a boot (i.e. romsey) because you can just make out his sock when he is tying his shoe.  also, am quite positive the bathroom scene is not the romsey (the stitching and shape of the quarters is different than the romsey much sharper angle than the roundish romsey quarter) but have never been able to figure out where it is from

DC was wearing a pair of black shoes with his grey linen suit in the Bahamas arrival. But when he arrived at the Oceans Club he was wearing a pair of brown laced up boots, possibly suede. I have a screencap of him tying up his shoeslaces and the knot was past the ankle. I'm 99.99999% sure they were the Romsey boots.

id be interested in seeing this - as when i was looking at freeze frames it certainly looked like the wrinkles on his sock was visible above the shoe.  not saying i dont believe you - just that i would be surprised.

the bathroom fight scene was much easier to conclude they were not romseys, thanks to still pictures in that illustrated book that came out (Casino Royale On Set, or something like that).

ive also wondered what boots he is wearing in the bahamas in the M scene.  it is a lighter shade of brown suede, certainly, but could never definitively tell if they were romseys - any idea on that one?

Re: Clothing in the movie question

I watched the Bahama Club arrival again and I was almost certain that they were brown suede shoes...however it looked like he had a black belt on...that was kind of wierd to me...perhaps it would be easier to identify the belt then that would help ascern the color / make of the shoe?

Anyone know what the belt is?

You are corrent here. I spotted and reported that before in simular discussions. Black belt with brown shoes has to be a error in wardrobe.

Re: Clothing in the movie question

Like cpoulos62 I always thought a black belt with brown shoes was a fashion no-no.  My understanding was the belt should always match the shoes.  However, this is something which has happened in JBs wardrobe a couple of times - and him meant to be the best dressed man in the world.

Its not only at the ocean club in CR, but also in the climax of TWINE where PB is wearin the oatmeal suit and blue shirt in Istanbul, and in the pre credit sequence for CR.  You have to see the colour photoes from the fight sequence with Fisher but again Bond is waering a black belt and brown chukka boots.

Nice for mere mortals to see that even Bond doesn't get it right all the time.

Re: Clothing in the movie question

Brown belt with black shoes, and vice versa is not a concrete no-no at all. It's just difficult to pull off as the shades of brown has to be able to blend in with the shades of black shoes/belt being worn. Rule of thumb being that the brown should be as dark as possible, and no shine is present on the brown shoes/belt. Lots of so-called "fashion-rules" are contradictory and only applies to certain scenarios. Suede in a dark chocolate brown is a good choice for shoes if a black belt is worn. The fact that DC has decided to venture that route says alot about his fashion sense.

Re: Clothing in the movie question

Great, please do.  I will be interested to see Magnoli's take on the pants.  I have the BB suit and the color is off IMO.  It's much too blue, not enough gray.  More Miami Vice than Bond.  Love to hear what you think when you get them.
