One piece of Bond kit for a new fan?

Hey all,

My buddy is looking to get his 1st piece of Bond Clothing since being inspired by so many of you on Instagram. We're not talking a Tom Ford Suit here or anything - but what should he start with as a good base? I'm thinking a Sunspel Rivera Polo or something from Royale Filmwear.

Thoughts?

    I agree that a Sunspel Polo is a basic to start with.

    A little higher in price might be a pair of Tom Ford Sunglasses (Snowdon or Henry maybe). It is something you can wear every day and practice what The Bond Experience calls the "invisible Bond moments".

    Or a Turnbull and Asser tie for when we have to dress for work.

    Higher up might be an N Peal Skyfall sweater, or the Church's Ryder III from QoS or a Crocket and Jones shoe.

    Those are my suggestions.

    I agree. Would start off with the Riviera Polo. It's a staple for the Bond wardrobe. Depends how much he has to spend?

    He's thinking around the $200 range so those were some excellent suggestions!

    Would also suggest the Rag & Bone Henley or if he can stretch the budget a bit, the RGT jacket.

    With summer coming... I love my Orlebar Brown blue linen shirt (SPECTRE)

    Agree with the suggestion of sunglasses.. TF Henry or the Skyfall Marko

    And if he trolls through the secondary market - snagging a pair of the OB trunks from Skyfall isn't too difficult.
