Re: white tom ford harrington

well nevermind. after further reasearch I found a picture of mantis wearing the same jacket. haha. should have known. so what's the story behind this jacket? guessing it was just for photo shoot purposes.

Re: white tom ford harrington

Actually no. Tom Ford produced the Harrington in several different colours. Here is a picture of yours truly wearing the cream version (several sizes too big...) at TF in Harrods in September 2009

They cost £1700 back then.

ah, I see. thanks for the info. I was under the impression only the harringtons with the leather collar were for sale to the public. the navy version of the one you're wearing aka the movie version was never for sale to the public though right? those harringtons are so nice. I can't take it. lol

jackets like that are the reason I wish I was swimming in cash and had nothing else to buy except nice clothing.

Actually,  the navy version, and the tan version seen above, were both for sale at TF, but they sold out very quickly as TF doesn't make large runs of his clothes.  There's typically one piece in each size, per store, and that's it.  TF did produce a version without the leather collar that was spot-on to the "QoS" jacket - the only difference was the leather details around the pockets.

You can see pics of the jacket I purchased in this thread (Posts #12 and #14) - http://www.ajb007.co.uk/topic/36529/tom … on-jacket/


Kind regards,

wow, they really only produce one of each size at each of the stores? that's crazy, no wonder not many people have the jacket then. Guess that's kind of cool though because it adds to the overall value of the jacket.  your jacket with the leather accents on the pockets looks amazing. I'd actually prefer to own that one over the screen worn version. the leather is such a minor detail, but adds so much elegance to a casual jacket like that & is something you obviously don't see on any other kind of harrington that's out there on the market. I bet that cost a pretty penny though. If I could own one piece of TF clothing, it'd definitely be that jacket.

Re: white tom ford harrington

The one I own is the one Craig is wearing in the pic above...I think I posted the inside label on some distant memory thread...short story from TF is the navy and the creme one were both considered for Quantum...guess which one won out?

Re: white tom ford harrington

Craig wears a US 38?

Re: white tom ford harrington

Their 48s fit about a 40R US...

Re: white tom ford harrington

Also, given that the item was tailor-made for Craig's body, I would assume that the rest of the jacket would be different than a typical 38-40R-sized piece. I remember when his Tuxedo from Skyfall went up for auction it was also listed as a 38, which I guess was the closest approximation they came up with to a standard off-the-rack size.

13

Re: white tom ford harrington

Ah I see.  Still interesting, though.  I know people have talked a lot about the sizing of the lodge and enjoying death jackets, but for some reason, hearing that he's a 38/40 puts it more in perspective for me.  It's interesting how big he looks on screen, but he's really not that big of a guy.

14

Re: white tom ford harrington

Yeah he's not massive, more mid-sized as far as people go I'd say, but he's incredibly well-toned and his muscles make him look 'big' on screen. If you watch some of his earlier, pre-Bond stuff like Layer Cake, he looks somewhat scrawny albeit well-dressed and handsome.

Re: white tom ford harrington

So knowing The Mantis height and weight would give us a good guess for DC true height and weight , as the fit of the jacket is almost the same on both of them  ajb007/smile

Re: white tom ford harrington

Got to chuck this one in here but....

A couple of the supposedly "skinny", "not-man-enough" Brosnan suits have appeared in auctions... and they have been listed showing a 40 fit.

Ah, the magic of the movies. You stand a smallish guy next to guys who are similar size or smaller and he looks bigger. Ask Rocky - it works for him.

That would only work if they both had identical muscle size, proportions, and percentage of bodyfat...

On a serious note, stripping body fat off someone can make a HUGE difference in what size they wear. Taking a guy from 11% bodyfat (already fairly lean) down to about 6% (very cut) can drop their clothes sizing a full size. I've seen this happen with friends who prepare for shows - as fat can take up three times the physical space as muscle (depending on where on the body it is) you can have two guys who are both 5'11" and 180 lbs yet wear their clothes in different sizes. Or, even better, the SAME guy :-) as he gets more fit.

And to give a bit more perspective, I have a 42" chest but often wear a size 38 jacket. Yet this weekend I tried on two different jackets at two different stores and had to wear a size 36! Sizing, especially in North America, is so messed up that it really is "just a number"...

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to imply here (that Craig isn't as buff as he appears on screen?), but keep in mind the style and cut of Brosnan's Brioni suits are dramatically different than Craig's Tom Ford stuff.

You're absolutly right , that's why I said "a good guess" no more no less . But we can see the very same jacket worn - with almost the same pose - by two guys with muscular built.

Just having a jest generally.

Merely that while Craig might be made to look more muscular than Brosnan with gym work, diet, clothing styles etc: however, Brosnan is a naturally bigger man (height, general bone structure,).

The suits sizes are the actually suit sizes the men themselves wore regardless of the difference in cut of the manufacturer; and remember, Craig also wore Brioni in CR.

The joke about the differing size of actors and the magic of the movies was exactly that. Cinema is all about the portrayal of the unreal and convincing an audience that what they are seeing is real. These trick can include various technques to make a man look bigger than he really is.

Re: white tom ford harrington

Ah, gotcha. Thanks for clarifying  ajb007/martini .

22

Re: white tom ford harrington

Craig has me beat hands down in the cut and muscular department...I can compete with chest girth but his waist is probably a 31 or 32 at best when down to "Bond fighting weight"...

So to be clear, I am very realistic that I am NOT built like Bond....

Re: white tom ford harrington

I love these photos! What a gorgeous jacket!!! Truly a work of art, and bad enough they run $2000. Can I get one in black, navy AND this cream color?
