  1. I love the website. While looking at the book, JAMES BOND-A CELEBRATION by Peter Haining, I came across a rare photo of a Anthony Sinclair fitting session (page 116) which I believe is for THUNDERBALL. The clues are Connery’s face is fuller than in the earlier fitting photos, he has a more confident manner about him, he is smoking a cigar which other photos reveal he did around the time of the THUNDERBALL schedule, and the garment is a navy blazer with lapel widths from that time. I enjoy seeing photos from those special sessions.

  2. Hi Matt it’s asking me to enter the Captcha to send my correspondence but it won’t let me enter it.

    Quick question anyway please. A lot of the suits worn by Daniel Craig auctioned at Christies were labelled as ’48R’ or ’48F’. Are these European sizes and do they correspond to ’38R’ UK? Thank you.

    Best wishes,

    Ashwin

      Tom Ford suits have European sizing. A 48 in EU sizing roughly translates to a 38 in UK. 48 in EU sizing translates to just under 19 inches, which is half the chest measurement. I do not know what the F means, and it’s not a normal length for EU sizing, which would be R, L or C (short). I suspect it may have something to do with the jacket being a custom size for Daniel Craig.

  3. I noticed right off the bat his suit is to tight.people that old and fat don’t belong in skinny jeans and skinny suits. Why do you make up silly reasons, plain and simple he had a terrible designer. I felt very uncomfortable for him.he is practically busting at the seams.just because something is in style doesn’t mean you will look good in it or have the body type for it. He is too old for it. People are to old or too fat for skinny jeans and skinny suits and spandex..plain and simple !! Grow up

    • Nobody is making up silly reasons, he’s merely answering Ash’s question about Tom Ford sizing. Daniel Craig is more responsible for the fit of his suits in Skyfall and Spectre than Jany Temime (costume designer) and Tom Ford (the designer whose clothing was used in the last three films) were. His personal wardrobe has suits with that too-tight look, which I naturally don’t approve of and think he deserves better. Worth noting, if it is Ford you are blaming, Quantum of Solace’s tailored clothing was also by him and it fits far better.

      Though, I’m also curious why you think a 50-year-old man in pretty good shape is “old” and “fat”.

    -As far as Tom Ford is concerned, I have to agree. But I still can’t make out from where you take the certainty that Craig is the one responsible for those miserably cut shrunken suits. At least I cannot see that Temime has any objections against that because she is selling those bum freezers as “hot”.

    “Though, I’m also curious why you think a 50-year-old man in pretty good shape is “old” and “fat”.”
    -I am with you – in fact the man doesn’t appear like a 50 year old man (he could be taken for one which is 10 years younger).
