Thanks for the link Fred.

I think it's a shame the only way they could display the mannequin was by drilling a hole through the base of the trainers! ajb007/crap

Andy House would have loved this one as he was trying to replicate the logo for ages....

This auction also features a Skyfall dinner suit (https://ukm.propstoreauction.com/m/lot- … lot/66668/), a grey Diamonds Are Forever suit jacket (https://ukm.propstoreauction.com/m/lot- … lot/66641/) and a Live and Let Die Pulsar (https://ukm.propstoreauction.com/m/lot- … lot/66646/)!

Connery had another tailor, Dimi Major of OHMSS, make a replacement pair of trousers for this suit, but those are in this auction.

Has the exact model of Puma pants ever been identified? Looks like the logo was colored in. The material also looks to be a cotton poly blend.

The tuxedo estimate seems really low to me. I might actually be able to get it if they're right. I'd vastly prefer that to the Omega watch I'm still waiting for.

I heard years ago the pants and jacket were custom pieces, based on already existing pieces, made specifically for Skyfall by Puma. I'm fairly certain at least one AJB managed to get their own from Puma, although I can't remember who. I've been fascinated by this tracksuit for a while because no one has really talked about it much.

What's more interesting is that the shades of navy don't match. For a custom done set, you would think they would have done a better job at that!

Puma is a really odd brand choice when matched with Adidas and given context of setting for where outfit is used and supposedly issued by.

Real agent would have worn Ron hills, the look is based on the physical training instructor look of the 80’s. I had issue version of the jacket for years and moved it on to a colleague who graduated about 8 years before SF so he could look like an old bar steward  ajb007/biggrin (thought I would never use again as you do)

Asked for it back only you find he had got rid, I nearly choked him to death!

Just ordered these from Macys for $33. I know they aren't even close but they were the closest I could find from Puma which have the cuff bottoms. Maybe I'll get some zippers put in at some point, or not....I sized down to get the slimmer fit. I like that it has the original Puma logo although I suspect it's going to be printed and not stitched. Oh well!!!  ajb007/lol
