The Fashion of James Bond

Who is in the history of film has passed through several fashion trends from the James Bond? I remember my awakening of fashion in the 90's, reading an article in Playboy (Yes, I read articles) discusses Pierce Brosnan in Goldeneye's closet. The article talks about the return of nautical blazer with gold buttons and matching Bond's Omega watch face of your suit, something that I still to this day.

Whether it's Sean Connery shows how you can fight the suit, and not destroy the fold or Brosnan's pretty-boy, born to wear Tux looks, Bond franchise has something to learn from each period.

Sean Connery (1962 - 1971)

original Bond usually wore two buttoned, single breasted suit is known as the Conduit Cut. With lots of blues and grays, Bond is almost always odijelu.Lapels are narrow to medium width, wider if the three-piece suit with a blue or white shirt. This style suit is made back to the popularity of Mad Men and it's very easy to copy. Another trademark of Connery's Bond was a plain white pocket square, neatly folded, either rectangular or in a single peak.

black tie for that time was very traditional, narrow bow ties and almost always black on black. The Rolling Stones, Connery broke this trend with white smoking jacket lapelled shirt. If you want to stand out in a sea of black tuxedos, this is a great option.

George Lazenby (1969)

There is not much to say about Lazenby influence on fashion in the Bond franchise. With only one film to his credit it is difficult to see a trend or influence, but had no corresponding decreases trendier and pin stripes.

One thing I will say, however, although no one knew who Austin Powers at the time, ruffles just does not cut it baby.

Roger Moore (1973 - 1985)

During this period there was an effort to update the Bond look with more sports jackets with contrasting colored pants, wider lapels of the 70s and lighter boje.Stane little loser and had almost leisure suit look at them. Moore is also a new year was the introduction of more double-breast jacket.

color suits in this period were light gray, khaki and patterns, but towards the end of Moore run styles began to revert back to the traditional three-piece suits Connery years, with darker colors. Another obvious change in the slacks unlike Connery wore slimmer cuts (tight pants trend I personally hope not return ).

tuxedos had larger lapels during this time, Moore relied more on a white dinner jacket, but only in black and crno.Leptir ties were wider, corresponding to a jacket lapel.

Timothy Dalton (1987 - 1989)

With only two films to his credit, Dalton did not get a real opportunity to influence the style of Bond like Connery and Moore, but exert an influence. Strong contrast of the neon colors of the 80's, Dalton's Bond stuck to dark gray, black and blue.

Up to this point, Dalton probably wearing the least amount of matches than any other Bond is seen in tuxes or more active wear, reflecting the aggressive nature then Bond Roger Moore. However, when he did wear suits, they are usually two buckle and three occasional pieces.

Pierce Brosnan (1995 - 2002)

Fleeing from the British cuts, Brosnan's Bond wearing custom Italian suits, tried to the last detail.

is a company building Brioni suits and, on average $ 5,000 per. Where are the Connery and Dalton could not fit into the crowd, Brosnan stood out as a Fortune 500 CEO. This guy looked like an ad for Omega, BMW or whatever high-end products could be prodaje.Odijela are three buttons, which were popular in the 90's, elegant pin stripes and silk pocket squares matching ensemble.

tuxedos are black on black and fit. Not that Bond ever watched fashioned in the past, but Brosnan's Bond was so elegant that they would never confuse him for a spy, but perhaps an investment banker.

Daniel Craig (2006 - present)

Craig is probably the perfect blend of high fashion, and Brosnan and Connery functions. With out a doubt, the suits for the last two Bond films are underrated perfection in both fit and style.

Beginning with a Brioni suit in Casino Royale and then at Tom Ford in Quantum of Solace, Craig era shows how a suit can create the look of elegance and still be functional. One of the problems I had with Brosnan's Bond is that there is no way you're getting into a fight with a suit like that and still look like you just put it on. At the other end of the spectrum was Connery with utilitarian and conservative style that means business.

modern Bond can be incorporated into the crowd like a spy should be, but never confuse her outfit for the "off the shelf". This look is understated sophistication, I hope the trend continues.

Bond, James Bond

beauty franchise like James Bond is that men have to follow the fashion icon, which is rare and longevity allows us to witness the development of men's fashion. Depending on your style, you'll probably find a look that suits your style from any era.
