From Tailors with Love: Episode 23 — Interview with Skyfall’s Yennis Cheung

11

In this episode Peter Brooker interviews Yennis Cheung, who was the cashier at the Macau casino in Skyfall. She discusses her scene with Daniel Craig, working with director Sam Mendes and being fitted by costume designer Jany Temime.

Pete and I also discuss Daniel Craig’s and Cary Fukunaga’s suits and shoes at the Bond 25 press conference in Jamaica. I also talk about my corduroy three-piece suit from a thift shop with outdated trousers while Pete tells a story about giving a urine sample.

You check read more in-depth notes on this podcast and find a short interview with Thom Whiddett of Thom Sweeney at Pete’s site, Human Research. Daniel Craig’s suit at the Bond 25 press conference was from Thom Sweeney.

  1. Are you going to do a post on your wedding and or wedding photo shoot?
    I’ll buy that for a dollar !

  2. This suit looks really fine on you because it goes perfectly with your complexion. In your case, IMO warm earth tones are always a much better choice than dark navy etc.
    May I suggest that perhaps a light blue shirt would have been preferable (but I am not entirely sure).

    Compliments!

    Best,
    Renard

    • Thank you! My skin tone is more on the cool side, which is why a light blue shirt would have been preferable to the ecru. Because my skin tone is slightly cool (more pink than creamy), many earth tones do not work on me. Dark navy is not so good either because my skin is very light, but mid to light blues and grey are best for suits.

  3. First of all, congratulations for your wedding Matt ! And although it’s the least important, your bespoke DJ looks fabulous. I like the wide peaked lapels.

    About your brown suit, I honestly think the color of it combined with the brown tie and brown pocket square washes you out a bit. A light or mid-blue shirt with a navy tie would have worked better. The shirt even if ecru looks white on the picture and it’s not flattering either.
    I think the waistcoat looks too wide and not as fitted as let’s say Lazenby’s navy herringbone suit.
    I like the shoulders of the jacket though : structured but not too wide.
    And I was disappointed not seeing a picture of the trousers ! I like wide trousers myself, providing they are made of a cloth heavy enough.

    Anyway these Foster collars make me jealous !

  4. “A light or mid-blue shirt with a navy tie would have worked better. ”

    -Mr. LeChiffre, I respectfully disagree 🙂 – at least as far as it concerns the tie: A navy tie would be too much for Matt’s complexion and I don’t think that it would go well with the suit’s light brown. But you are of course right with regard to the shirt’s colour.

    “I think the waistcoat looks too wide and not as fitted as let’s say Lazenby’s navy herringbone suit.”
    -It’s from a thrift store and not bespoke, so what can you expect? But from what I can see, the overall fit is by no means bad. The shoulders are always the crucial thing and to my eye, they seem to be fitting quite well.
