    I was pretty keen on all the wears Tom Ford made for Daniel Craig. Very well tailored and fitted for a man with a muscular physique. Very little leeway for any fat. I particularly was fond of the tab collars Craig wore. You see the entire film as having Craig channel that clean "man cutting through the city" look of the 1960s. It was quite an effect to my eye seeing Craigs wears next to those that they put Fiennes in. Fiennes looks were a bit more 90s in style with cloth that was cut to drape away... built up shoulders to the jackets, shirts that bloused out. Fiennes clothing looked clumsy and staid, even if just by a tad when juxtaposition to the clean action ready look of Craig. Very well done.


    Man just look at the bottom hem of the jacket it should "fall' just between the two jointsof the thumb ,look at how high it is ??

    That's an old wives tale that has gained steam from the alterations tailors at department stores and dry cleaners. Suit length, properly fitted, should be based on a person's physique regardless of arm length as that can vary greatly within people of the same height. Quality tailors will place the jacket hem midway between a client's jacket collar seam and the floor, making sure to cover the buttocks; which is paramount.

    Well that just shows a lack of commitment

    Some of the suits in this film were pretty cool. I particularly liked the royal/navy blue pinstriped three-piece. I can't say I liked the grey suit that Craig wore. It looks far too pinched and tight and skinny...and incredibly uncomfortable.

There is no drape to the trousers and to me it's gives off an air of... well not tailoring skill as much as the need to make the trousers tight enough to show off a man's... you know.
    Well the current trend is more skinny than slim.
    Its a harkening to the 60s look, but not executed well. Too skinny, too wrinkled. TOO wrinkled.
    Heres what it should look like

    I think ratpack designer Sy Devore did a lot of elvis' post army costumes. Lots of pegged narrow pants.

    The trousers definitely have a slight break.

    The brake is Ballocks! If the fabric had the body and structural integrity to handle a break it would be one thing, but that atrocity of a suiting fabric most certainly and woefully does NOT. It looks like a brushed sateen finished polyester! It should have been a Very stout and rigid mohair at the least to handle a break, furthermore, the trousers are too tight to support a break. If they'd simply been done slim and with a rigid fabric (and enough room for the "crease" not to have been splayed out by being pulled tight against the leg, they might have been able to cope with that scurrilous suiting fabric, though a stout mohair still would have been better in my own opinion, or a merino wool silk blend (but mohair's better for that 60s aesthetic). Anyway, you get the idea..... The whole point of the look of the period which they're aping with the bond films is minimalism, not cheapness and clinginess, that said, they should have gone for clean lines, visible creases and simplified structure, and NO trousers breaks as trousers were done in the 1960s!

    Apparently, our "family" sold out to the Bonds of Scotland. Been doing internet research lately on my surname and discovered that the ancient estate originally owned by a predecessor family, (have no idea if actually related), sold their estate in Balmaghie Scotland to the Bond family in the 18th century.
