I’m excited to announce that you can now order the book From Tailors with Love: An Evolution of Menswear Through the Bond Films, authored by myself (Matt Spaiser) and Peter Brooker and published by BearManor Media. From Tailors with Love tells the story of the celluloid Bond’s clothing and the talents behind the wardrobes through the people who worked on the films, the fashions of the eras and the meaning the clothes have within the films. The book provides fresh insights through exclusive interviews with Bond-series costume designers Lindy Hemming, Jany Temime, Jodie Tillen and Emma Porteous, the late celebrity shirtmaker to the Bond series Frank Foster, Bond film director John Glen, menswear mogul Umberto Angeloni, keeper of the Bond brands David Mason, Bond collector and experiencer David Zaritsky and many others.
This book tells the history of James Bond’s clothing through text and original photos and illustrations that detail the work by the tailors and clothiers featured in the book. It does not feature imagery from the Bond films or of the Bond actors, and it is not a coffee table book. It is a book to be read and referenced.
The book was officially released on 31 May 2021, and can order the book in a number of ways:
