Do you want to dress like James Bond?

March 10, 2014

Chances are you’ve seen Skyfall but have you wondered where did he get that jacket, which brand shoes are they or who makes that? Well after a little research I can now tell you what James Bond has in his wardrobe and what he wore in Skyfall.

That Leather Jacket
The jacket is part of Levi’s Vintage clothing line and will be produced in limited quantities, only 30 pieces have be allocated to North America according to http://www.underfinishedman.com

The 1930’s James Bond Skyfall distressed leather jackets are made out of sheep skin and are produced in Italy. The jackets have a worn look to them and feature adjustable waist tabs and two front slash pockets. If you want to look like James Bond, it’s going to cost you; the jackets are priced at $900 each. Funny really because I was told in the Levi’s shop on Bond street London that the people who select the clothes for films actually picked it up in an end of season shop complex in the home counties.

Suits
Very crisp and very sharp, the match of Ford and Bond strikes for the second time. No matter what the scene or what the danger the perfectly fitting suit is a winner all round.

Shirts
Tom Ford shirt, with a tab collar, where the points are fastened together by a strip of material underneath the tie knot. First popular in the Twenties and favoured by the Duke of Windsor, the tab enjoyed its last revival in the Sixties before collar stiffeners became the norm for formal shirts. They say Selfridges in London is worth a look. But at £320 per shirt they doesn’t come cheap

Barbour Beacon Heritage Sports Jacket
Bond’s Barbour Beacon Heritage Sports Jacket – the result of a collaboration between the British brand and Japanese designer Tokihito Yoshida. Made from 6oz sylkoil wax and featuring a removable hood and Barbour signature tartan lining, the jacket is sure to have you covered whether you’re being roughed up by the weather in town or by Javier Bardem in the Scottish Highlands. Probably about £400

The Watch
That’s right Omega supports Bond once again with this limited edition OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8507! The OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean

To be truthful I could go on and on about what Bond wears though the best coverage I found was on James Bond Lifestyle – so why reinvent the wheel, take a look for yourselves
