Looks great! Lovely fabric on that.
I'm pretty happy with the way the replacement buttons look. I just had them changed by my tailor, here's the result:
That looks great! Thanks for sharing! Maybe a dumb question, but are you using a basic hanger for this jacket? I have mine on a basic wooden hanger but was thinking about getting a wooden jacket hanger since it’s an expensive piece.
Yeah just a basic wooden hanger, probably from Ikea lol. I don't really see much point in spending a stack on a fancy hanger for a soft jacket like this.
What are people's favourite tuxedo look from the Craig era?
Skyfall for me. Although I quite like them all 🍸🍸
1) QoS - by a wide margin
2) = CR/SF
I've always been a fan of the Skyfall look more than the others; the shawl collar, pocket handkerchief, marcella shirt with pearl studs, narrow bowtie and wholecut shoes are all really good-looking. I think the jacket should have two vents rather than one but everything else is spot on.
Good order C&D😉
QOS is a real marmite choice. It's either right at the top or at the bottom.....
Personally, I think it's too early to judge NTTD's tuxedo (or costumes) for that matter. So many of the choices were made to fit the particular colour palette that Fukunaga was trying to create. Hence the strong focus on primary colours. In set photos or stills it can seem a little odd. But when photographed on film, they look totally different.
Nonetheless, I think the NTTD tuxedo is terrific. I like the bowtie and the fit of the tuxedo. Craig looks stunning.
🍸🍸 Just spotted that we have he same order! TBH I was thinking about the clothes in general in each film, not just the evening dress. Bond's elegant casual outfits in QoS are a far cry from what I've seen of NTTD's outfits, IMO.
Happy Saturday, all!
Not really wardrobe. But while I was doing research for tomorrow's post on Iconic Alternatives, I came across these:
It's the Rika rattan chair from Danish company House Doctor. I'm pretty sure these are the chairs on Bond's deck in the the Jamaica house scenes.
Edit: Just found this thread https://www.ajb007.co.uk/discussion/53068/furniture-in-nttd
And it looks like the Malawi chair is also a great contender. And @HalfMonk HalfHitman shared pictures of what looks like an identical chair at the Goldeneye resort. Does anyone know if the Malawi was confirmed? Thanks!
Update: with much effort I think I've ID the belt worn by Billy Magnusses. The only reference we have are that is green perforated suede and has a leather loop, plus a silver buckle (click to enlarge details: https://www.007.com/wp content/uploads/2020/10/NTTD_DIGITAL_1S_BW_FULL_CHARACTER_BILLY_OV.jpg)
The closest match I've found is from Timberland. I've contacted them, but didn't know about connections with them movie. But the positive aspect is that they told me those belts are constantly produced so (maybe) it'll come back in stock (https://www.timberland.ie/shop/en/tbl-ie/outlet-collection/suede-leather-belt-for-men-in-green-a1byj023)
Excellent work - as always.
Much appreciated @MFisher
Quick Tom Ford suit question I'm hoping someone can help me with :)
Is the Tom Ford Navy Prince of Wales O'Connor suit at https://www.harrods.com/en-gb/shopping/tom-ford-oconnor-two-piece-suit-16062452 the same as the one David reviews at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYLfNVeCAR4. I'm looking to get the complete set of jacket, trousers, cocktail cuff shirt and shoes!
Aware it's the Highbury shoes from C&J but any help on identifying the shirt and rest of outfit would be greatly appreciated!
It is indeed the same blue suit as featured in the reviews.
Good luck in completing the suit combo!
All the best,
