Bond-a-licious!

I went to see the new James Bond movie SPECTRE. They should call have just called it 00-tight pants.

00-tight pants

I don’t believe I have ever seen a suit that fitted do so much action and still look so amazing!

My hat’s off to the costume designer Jany Temime,

but of course the Daniel Craig – James Bond we know and love would be nothing, as far as his sartorial expression, without my all-time favorite suit maker, Tom Ford.

Not only does Tom look spectacular in the suits he designs but he will make you look spectacular too (budget allowing!)

And by the way Tom, if you’re ever looking for a model for one of your ads give me a call. 🙂

Yes! There are suits, but the Spectre Bond also carries on the tradition of the Blouson seen on many of his predecessors. Tom gives us a handsome, all-purpose black one.

I just bought a version (Champion from Target) that will keep me just as warm while I ski the slopes and drink hot-toddies (in truth I don’t ski but I do drink so that’s half the battle right there!)

Though Daniel Craig is not my number one James (that would be Pierce Brosnan – I do like a little, okay a lot, of camp).

Pierce Bronson

Mr. Craig does bring to the franchise everything that a masculine dressing human would want to convey when looking their best.

I won’t spoil anything for those of you who haven’t yet seen the movie. But I will say it was an enjoyable time.

There are three things that I always love about a Bond movie: the clothes…

Daniel Craig stars as James Bond in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures/Columbia Pictures/EON Productions’ action adventure SKYFALL.

the gadgets…

and the cars.

Bond and car

The downside is always the misogyny, which to its credit is less.  And as the search for a new Bond may be eminent I’m going to go ahead and cast my vote!

Idris Elba!

He would be everything and more!

SKYFALL 007

One of my favorite movie franchises has done it again and released another hit!

I am sure it is no surprise that I have loved this series since I was a little Dandi.  Yet I would be remiss not to point out the one glaring and unfortunate part of the writing and series, it’s horrible depiction of women. I watched a circa 1960’s Bond the other day and winced through the whole thing.

Image

That said, I’ve never really watched it for the plot and always kudos to their choice of talented and stunning actress, and even better how the as the 21st century “bond girl/woman” has more skills and fighting power of their own.

James Bond is the most incredible Dandi fictional creation that has ever graced our imaginations.  Even when Peter Sellers portrayed Bond (weird) the stylists had figured out that this man was to be the most dapper, immaculate man alive.

The franchise had some casting misses and no, I don’t think Pierce Brosnan was one of them but now that we have Daniel Craig all things are right with the world.  A sexier man in a suit there rarely is and I am happy to see that he will hopefully be around for awhile.

And of course beside the gorgeous clothes, woman and amazing doodads and electronics I am also a car nut and cannot wait to see this Aston Martin be the perfect accessory to the Dandy James fighting crime and getting the girl (as a matter of speaking!) 🙂
