Stripped of the cunning artifices of the tailor, and standing forth in the garb of Eden - what a sorry set of round-shouldered, spindle-shanked, crane-necked varlets would civilized men appear. ~ Herman Melville
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.
...Where did you get that hat, where did you get that tile? Isn't it a nobby one and just the proper style! I should like to have one just the same as that. Whereever I go they'd shout "hello, where did you get that hat?..."

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!Originally Posted by Craig doesnt seem to be wearing his suits quite as short on the Red Carpet.
The trousers definitely have a slight break.
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.
