Brosnan's clothes completely avoid any fashion trends, and it's especially helpful that he doesn't wear any casual clothes.
GE, on the other hand, just has such a dated feel to it overall. Brosnan's clothes are much more of the 90s, though not bad.

Have to say that Brosnan's suits in TWINE are absolutely insanely amazingly good. They'd still look fantastic today!

But you're right about GE - very British 90s look. Almost like Brosnan just walked off a middle-management shift at the bank.

Re: 10 reasons why Pierce Brosnan was The Best James Bond

Brosnan had a sunglasses collection, if I remember correctly.
He does look cool there.

-Roger Moore's James Bond. RIP.
I have a YouTube channel on all things Bond (amongst other things, coming soon™).
The name's Bond and Beyond. It's currently on hold, though.

Can't argue with those reasons. He'll always be the best for me.  ajb007/biggrin

Re: 10 reasons why Pierce Brosnan was The Best James Bond

I grew up with Brosnan as Bond, so I will always enjoy his portrayal of the character. He just seems to convey the ideal qualities of what makes Bond Bond. And he's a perfect combination of the actors who played him before, with Moore's humour and Connery's suaveness. He made the role his, even if his films are a bit hit and miss through no fault of his.

And it's great to see all the love for Brosnan in this thread. He and his films have been looked upon poorly in recent years, so it's nice to see some appreciation for him and what he did for the role and series.

He's looking very cool, aging gracefully and oozing class.

I like Pierce as Bond and felt he never really got the chance to do his best. I see him as a Caretaker Bond,a kind of composite, or a Bond cocktail. He had some really good moments and deserves respect. He was I think treated badly. Glad that his post Bond period is going well. Bond can be a bit of a curse.

Re: 10 reasons why Pierce Brosnan was The Best James Bond

Brozzer is and will always be my favourite Bond. I grew up with him in the part all through my childhood and can stick on any of his movies and enjoy them, any day of the week. He was the perfect bond for the 90's!

....and the best he ever managed was a sermon on the mount.
