Well...this is going to be a very expensive next six months  ajb007/bond  Can’t wait to see what we’ll get from those brands (if they all do appear in the finished film).

Yes I already established that DC does have an influence and he certainly brings in some brands, but he doesn't run the wardrobe department.  So I disagree that he selects all of the brands that appear in his movies.

Plus As it is already obvious by now that we haven’t seen any returning brands except for TF and Omega (SO FAR).

Crockett & Jones (confirmed)
Billy Reid (all but confirmed by the brand)

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

I prefer the style of Craig’s first two Bond films (especially suits that actually fit), and am basically just bored with the Skyfall style that has been the standard for this decade. Billy Reid, NPeal, TF, OB are all fine brands, but there’s a lot of good stuff out there in the world of menswear that would add a new dimension. Craig is indeed calling the shots and sadly he’s just not that rakish in his sense of style.

Hopefully a new Bond will bring some fresh concepts in the wardrobe department (especially the suits). I know this is a minority view here, but I can’t be alone in feeling this way.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

Now that my BP-sunglasses arrived I must say that they are godawful. Looking like 5$ off-the-rack wayfarers. As a collector, of course I must have them. But will they get a lot of wear? Naah  ajb007/embarrassed

Daniel Craig calls most of the shots with his own Bond wardrobe and has done so since Skyfall. It's why his Tom Ford suits in Bond 25 look almost identical to the suits in Spectre despite a different costume designer. It's why we saw Billy Reid and Brunello Cucinelli on him as Bond, and it's why we're going to see Billy Reid again. If we see Orlebar Brown again, that would now be because of their collaboration with EON. But many of the brands we saw with Jany could return for Bond 25 because Craig chose many of them himself.

Love your input !

Plus As it is already obvious by now that we haven’t seen any returning brands except for TF and Omega (SO FAR) . Jany is more European in her brands, styles and fit. Suttirat is more American so more laid back and relaxed casual wear fit (check out her other movies)

Either way, we shall see.  It’s just that I feel the last two movies have raised everyone’s expectations too high in the wardrobe department.  ajb007/smile  ajb007/martini


If David and Matt are speaking with confidence , Then there is still hope  ajb007/smile  ajb007/martini

That explains why Craig kept switching to his personal Vuarnets.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

Had to laugh out loud when I was reading your post. I had the same feelings of the Vuarnets. That reddish brown plastic... Awful. Had to return them.

Look out for a pair of the  original 06‘s then. They are a proper dark brown, with better lens colouration and fit! I own them aswell as the SA modell and they are by far superior and great sunglasses per se!  ajb007/martini

Just wish they would go back to Persol.  Quality all the way.

And one other thing - I think it would be fantastic to see a hat, maybe brief, thrown onto the coatrack in M / MoneyPenny's office, but probably not going to happen....

Billy Reid said it was a jacket they sent to the production. I tried it on and it would have been very nice if the sizing didn't run small!

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

Yesterday  I received this advertisement email from Private White VC.
Are they referring to the Tom Ford Harrington jacket in QoS or is it a hidden hint (see yellow highlight)?

Strange that they'd list the Rat Pack before McQueen. And "It has been adorned ..."?

For those looking to buy this shirt, here's some information that I hope will be helpful.

Tommy Bahama is about to launch its Friends & Family sale: 25% off everything, including new arrivals.

Today is a sneak preview day for regular customers (like me). I just used the promo code EARLYACCESS to get 25% off my black Catalina shirt, bringing the cost down to $86 USD.

I expect the code will work for you as well. Good luck!

The original Catalina was 100% silk. This is a stretch silk blend listed as 59% silk, 38% cotton, 3% spandex.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

It's hard for me to imagine that Tommy Bahama is going to reverse course in terms of the fabrics they're using for this shirt. They must feel that the blend is superior. And 99.9% of their customers for these shirts couldn't care less about the percentage of silk not being screen accurate to Bond 25. The look of the shirt will matter big time to casual Bond fans — not the fabric.

The TB website advertises these as new colors, not a new design, which is another reason to think there won't be a SA re-release next year as planned. (Maybe someone here has a source, though.) But hey, people are free to wait or continue hunting on the web for the SA version.

I'm not a collector and what matters to me is that the shirt looks cool. I just thought some here might appreciate a discount.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

Thanks for the discount code, Chevarian. I do appreciate it.  ajb007/martini

I've emailed Tommy Bahama for clarification. It will be good to know if a SA version is coming in 6 months.

I just remember the uproar when Billy Reid changed the fabric of the peacoat.

The Bond costumers have an uncanny skill at choosing clothes that are about to be discontinued or redesigned, don't they?

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

There are some minor changes, e.g. look at the shape of the pocket and the stitching at the pocket (one row vs. 2 rows)...
