Bough the M&S SPECTRE polo thanks for the tip from Canoe so gave it a test drive today
Good budget alternative than my Smedley Noah, neck line not as deep though on the M&S version  but still passes muster for me

Bespoke T&A shirt with cocktail cuffs and TWINE collar, TND tie, and Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso watch.  (I know, TC wears one in gold but you get the idea)

I love this! Excellent job.

I still love that tie and it looks really good with a blue shirt. Maybe it is time I add it to my collection too. I've got quite a few T&A ties, but no 007 ones. If I'd ever buy one, this would be it.

Looks great, don’t forget Bruce Wayne wore that watch also, so that’s two billionaires you’ve captured in your look in addition to Connery, Moore, Craig, and Brosnan. Impressive!

Looks good! How does the fabric feel, I didn’t know how much the silk softens it up.

Thanks!  Now that I think about it, all three of the major characters to ever wear a Reverso on screen (Bruce Wayne, Don Draper, Thomas Crown) all wear it on a brown strap so I guess I'm going in the wrong direction.   ajb007/smile

Oh yeah, I forgot about Don Draper, I think it looks great as is.

Re: What Bond are you wearing today?

Today, spectre style puppytooth 5 pocket pants, black braided kangaroo belt, spectre style McQueen desert boots, slate grey tee with black shawl collar cardigan. Kind of cr on top and spectre on bottom. Some of my favorite stuff that mixes well together.

Re: What Bond are you wearing today?

Rainy day here, so I’ve got a waxed Valentino Harrington, a blue knit polo, lucky jeans, saffiano belt, and black bay blue style watch. Another quantum look which is comfortable and seems to be popular among us here! Keeping it alive!

Softer than I expected. My budget TF before this was the John Smedley Noah which is soft to the touch. I expected this to be course like a pique polo but it’s not and I am pleasantly surprise.

Not completely SA but I fully recommend for the price.

Re: What Bond are you wearing today?

No bond today, grey suede desert boots, grey Levi 511, blue Henley, rare day not having any bond but I'd guess inspired by casual Daniel Craig.

Re: What Bond are you wearing today?

Today I wore a Connery/Lazenby/Moore/Craig-inspired outfit for a special photo shoot. My suit was a cross between the glen check suits in GF and OHMSS. The pattern has an overcheck like in OHMSS, but the pockets are straight and have a ticket pocket like in GF, and the trousers are the same forward-pleat style with DAKS tops as in GF. My tie was a navy grenadine tie like in most of Connery's films, but wider. And my shirt from Bond shirtmaker Frank Foster was pink like the shirt Lazenby wears a couple times in OHMSS but with a TMWTGG spread collar and OP button cuffs with a large button. The shoes were Craig-inspired, in the same style as the black quarter brogue oxfords from QOS but from C&J rather than Church's.

I'm happy to have taken inspiration from four Bonds in my outfit. Though I'm confident in my sense of style, it makes me feel more confident when my clothes are very close to things that Bond has worn.

Re: What Bond are you wearing today?

Just saw the pic on your insta.  ajb007/amazed  that is a fantastic outfit! And best wishes on the upcoming nuptials

Re: What Bond are you wearing today?

Took a page out of canoe2's book and bought the Mango linen jacket in order to channel my Spectre look:

- TF tie as per this forum's special project.
- Mango jacket.
- Plain white shirt.
- Dockers chinos.
- J. Crew's Kentons.
- (Unseen) Brosnan GE Omega 2541.

Not a bad ensemble, I'd say.

I do love this outfit. Alas I can never seem to find the right occasion to pull this off  ajb007/crap

Can I make a suggestion? I think you nailed the fit up top. But the pants will definitely need some tailoring work; both in tapering/slimming the legs and also shorten the length. Right now they seem, with the desert boots, more "going for a hike" then "visiting a desert lair with Madeleine Swann".

Thanks for the feedback! I'm well aware of the pants fitting. They were bought under different circumstances (i.e., I was quite broader) and are too big now. Have a couple alternatives but will probably end up looking for new ones (you gotta love sizing down).

As for where to pull the outfit, google Andalusian fairs (Seville and/or Xerez).
