Re: Bond 25 wardrobe

Besides TF and Omega which are both pretty much guaranteed to return. I think the other brands that we could likely see return are Crockett & Jones, N.Peal and Dents. Hopefully this is the case so we can further establish some brand continuity with Craig's portrayal.

Personally, I'd be fine with TF providing the suits again, as long as they went back to the QoS cut and fit. Those were about perfect IMHO. But I would like to see a return to the mixing of brands we saw in Casino Royale and, to a lesser extent, SF. Turnbull & Asser shirts and ties, dunhill cufflinks, etc. They clould certainly mix in some lesser known "boutique" brands while they're at it, like they've done with Billy Reid or N.Peal.

I'd also like to see Bond return to the Caribbean, with some TB style scuba diving. So that's a place where OB and Sunspel could easily return.

But in general, fewer suits and more classic men's casual looks please.

+1 on all accounts!

Would love to see him in another Matchless jacket. They make fantastic jackets. Would hope for a much better customer interface though.

Yeah they need to work on that a lot,  and that while limited edition thing was ridiculous,  Id prefer it if we didn't have limited edition clothing,  fine if something is genuinely a one off or ultra rare.

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Other than the braces I like that outfit,  in fact I wear a similar combo,  except Matchless Kensington, grey jeans,  black suede Chelsea boots and a black ob t shirt.

My major issue with this outfit is that he is wearing a leather blazer....in 2017, and that his pants are too wide to cuff. It just throws off the entire proportion of the silhouette. But I doubt Jany, or whoever will be in charge of wardrobe for the next Bond film will allow that to happen to 007.  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Bond 25 wardrobe

Regarding leather jackets in the next Bond, I'd personally prefer if they went with another option. In Craig's time we've had the Armani, the Menlo, the Matchless and the JV. I just tend to like jackets like the Y-3, the TF Harrington and the Barbour more. Even the Dior has grown on me. I'd like to see him in something like a Barbour waxed cotton bomber jacket. Just personal preference.

Edit: Something like this would work well I think

It'd be cool if they got away from from Tom Ford EVERYTHING in any given scene. Tom Ford jacket, pants, sunglasses, shirt, tie and socks all in one outfit. There are a lot of opportunities.

Yeah it was not one of his best looks. Would've been great if he made the announcement in a TF suit, but he probably gets sick of wearing them all the time.

I'm not sure he's worn a TF suit since Spectre. It seems like Cucinelli is his go to brand now.

Re: Bond 25 wardrobe

I just don't think the Safari jacket works today and it especially doesn't work for Craig's Bond. Let Moore and his Safari Jacket R.I.P.

It's very fashionable right now, so if Bond goes on a safari again there's no reason for it not to return. Craig is very much about current fashions, so it works for him. More 1940s fashions need to return!

Re: Bond 25 wardrobe

Not strictly wardrobe related, per se, but I think Craig needs a longer haircut for B25. At least QoS length, if not longer (think Heineken advert for Spectre). Even if it doesn't make him look younger - although I believe it would - it creates a more distinguished look befitting a man of his age. The cropped thing is not the least bit flattering on him at this point. He's carrying more weight in the face these days, and the short cut on the sides overemphasizes this.

I expect his hair will probably be the same if not very similar to his Spectre style. I just hope he has it side parted the whole film this time!

I suspect you're right.

Re: Bond 25 wardrobe

Crockett and Jones for sure, more casual wear like Polo and t shirts. They got the balance between casual and suited in Casino Royale just about right so more of that for me.

45

Re: Bond 25 wardrobe

I honestly would love for more leather jackets, something from Matchless would be great (everything I own of theirs is awesome, and no I don't own the Craig Blouson) but it is really just not Bond's style.

I feel that Craig's style and Bond's are miles apart and while Craig wears leathers and other great clothing which I like, Bond is a suit, polo, chuka, light jacket kinda guy.

Best,
Stefan

Re: Bond 25 wardrobe

More sunglasses! Lot's more!

IMHO sunglasses are easily the most accessible items from Bond's arsenal, both in terms of price/availability, and everyday usability. I have owned/own all the Persol and Tom Ford sunglasses from DC era's Bond films, and they all get good rotation of wear. Can't say the same for the clothings and shoes  ajb007/tongue

Bring on another batch of sunglasses I say!

Spectre introduced 3 new sunglasses which I think is more then enough for a single film. That said I would like to see the Marko's return. They're likely Craig's personal favorite of the Tom Ford Bond sunglasses since he's been seen wearing them for years now, even wore them on the set of Spectre.

Re: Bond 25 wardrobe

I would like it it if they use same articles of clothing in multiple outfits (mix and match) as well. It would make more sense that way and be easier to put together multiple outfits.

Dalton, Brosnan and Craig have all worn leather jackets,  so I think it could work, especially if it's inkeeping with scene/ location.
Id also like bond back in persols and some more affordable items mixed in with his wardrobe.  Up until Sp we had loads of reachable pieces.... Hell Cr and qos even made bonds cars within reach of many with the Ford Mondeo and Volvo.  Spectre went uber expensive with the Dior homme jacket and thousand dollar polo shirt.

Re: Bond 25 wardrobe

As long as the clothing doesn't spell GUCCI or D&G in huge gold letters across the chest and bum, it's entirely possible to treat what you see on screen as inspiration, there is even a thread here for budget Bond collectors with convincing alternatives.

Personally, as for leather outfits, I say NO...
