Looks to be the Levi's LVC vintage 1930's Menlo...

Levi's has had this vintage Californian styled jacket in their lineup for a few years now.
I obtained a Large that can fit a 44-46 easily for my 6' 190lbs frame, but I could go down to a medium (or a proper 42R) to get the proper screen accurate Daniel Craig fit.

Do you have a link? I don't see it on the Levis website.

I think it is already an old model (early 2012 jacket)

I thought Tom Ford was doing all of Craig's wardrobe for the movie.

It also looks really damned expensive.  I should reconsider a government salary.

Re: Skyfall James Bond leather jacket

In the second photo of Craig there appears to be a metal collar hook which I can't see in the Levis photos...although it might be there. If it isn't, then I suspect DC's jacket is Ford's 'take' on the Levis jacket.

This site seems to have it in large:

Re: Skyfall James Bond leather jacket

So you believe it's more likely Ford copied the Levis and added a hook and snap on the collar for his version, rather than wardrobe just adding those two easy additions to an existing Levi's jacket? Considering they have never had Bond entirely clothed in just Ford garments I think it's more likely an obtained actual Levi's jacket.

Yeah I agree, quite an expensive jacket, doubt I would ever buy one for retail...

Re: Skyfall James Bond leather jacket

Could just be glare or an earpiece of some sort hanging.  Doesn't really look that much like a snap or hook to me.

13

Re: Skyfall James Bond leather jacket

Yeah, could even be a mic clip, all kinds of stuff that can be done then edited out later if they were even shooting at this point... we shall see in the fall I guess, but I'll still have some folks look into it further for true confirmation.
This is all really just best guess speculation based on the evidence here in front of us as usual.

Re: Skyfall James Bond leather jacket

I've just bought this. Beans on toast for the rest of my life now. I blame this thread.

Re: Skyfall James Bond leather jacket

Hope you did a "Make An Offer." Seller was ready to sell it to me for 200 less than the list, but you swooped in before I could respond!

Re: Skyfall James Bond leather jacket

Don't worry, Magnoli'll do a copy of this without breaking a sweat. I mean - those ptices for LEVIS....!!!!!

With these jackets as rare as rocking horse droppings, I thought a swoop was essential. If it's any consolation, it'll cost me another fortune to get the sleeves shortened.

I'm glad it went to someone here. I was going to roll the dice and hope it fit, but I think I'm probably looking for a small.

Do you really think Magnoli's price in the accurate sheepskin will be any less than the Levi's retail price at the same quality level?
I am also looking at recreating this one, and $800-900 isn't out of range easily for an accurate rendition built here in the US... and frankly the "designed & tailored in CA, made in Italy" Levis jacket is of better build quality than many a "boutique" labeled jacket I have seen go for much more. Any of the Ralph Lauren and RRL (most made in china) jackets of the vintage styles that I have seen bouncing around over the past couple of years go for way more $$ than the Levi's LVC line.

Re: Skyfall James Bond leather jacket

For info, especially for London based people, today I bought the black leather version for half price in the L.V.C store near Carnaby St. I usually need a large size but a medium fits ok.

Dunno whether Magnoli's price will be less. I was simply making the point £600ish retail seems a lot for the brand Levi.

And remember, Magnoli's will be bespoke, most likely, and not off the rack like the Levis. As your own will, I guess?

Now whether there is a quality issue between Magnoli's build process and one "built in the US" I will leave to others....

Out of interest, did they have any in Small?

Not sure. I started with a large and was happy with medium. A few were on the racks so maybe small was there too. I suggest you move quite quick - the sales guy mentioned the sales stop next week.

Let me be the first to say that I think this jacket looks awful. Each to their own though!  ajb007/shifty

Re: Skyfall James Bond leather jacket

If anyone in London would be willing to help me procure the aforementioned half price jacket in a size small (assuming you eyeball it and it's correct), I can offer a nice finder's fee. Let me know!
