James Bond – Part II

Gentlemen,

After James Bond – Part I where we reviewed the British Spy luxury and heritage cars, it’s time to take a closer look at the secret agent’s luxury style.

The Suit

Tom Ford has designed the suits for his second straight Bond movie, clearly he has the hidden talent. Even the MI6 agent needs to look the part during the dangerous car chasing scenes.

Tom Ford, renowned for his conservatism when it comes to formal wear, focuses on basics. Although he only focuses on basics, he does it better than anyone else in the industry.

The bold move to design a midnight blue tuxedo is actually an interesting tactical move by the american designer. Midnight Blue is known, in the luxury circle of gentlemen fashion, to be more formal than black. This is because in certain light black turns greenish, however midnight blue under many lights actually looks blacker than black therefore more formal that black.

The Watch

One of my favourites piece of the James Bond menswear is the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M watch. 

Since 1932, Omega presented the first watch for divers, the luxurious watchmaker launched the Seamaster range in 1948.

Today the Seamaster features on one of the classiest men of all time – James Bond. Limited to only 5,007 pieces, the watch is powered by the Omega’s exclusive Co-Axial calibre 8507 movement visible through the sapphire crystal. Currently on sale for £4,420.

The Sunglasses

Together with the luxurious watch, James needed sunglasses to go with his overall attire. The Tom Ford TF11 is a standard model from the Tom Ford collection.

 

James Bond (Daniel Craig) can be seen here wearing what looks like the Tom ford Marko model number TF144 08B Shiny Gunmetal.

So Gentlemen, have you picked up your tuxedo from the dry cleaner for tonight’s casino evening?
