The Suits of James Bond has a new look!

23

The Suits of James Bond is now redesigned with a fresh look. The blog’s refreshed design makes it easier to navigate the most recent posts on the homepage, along with featuring a more inviting image. It is now easier to browse category pages for the films, the actors and other topics when trying to find a specific outfit or item. There is also a new menu on mobile devices to make navigating the blog easier on the go.

The blog also has a new URL, www.BondSuits.com, for a catchier address that is quicker to type . This URL has redirected to this blog for a few years now, but now it is the blog’s main URL. You can and will be able to still access the site through TheSuitsOfJamesBond.com, but please update your bookmarks to www.BondSuits.com.

Explore the new site design and find your favourite old posts again.

  1. Looks superb Matt, plus it’s much easier to locate a specific outfit or blog post now, with a lot less scrolling involved. I’ve followed your work here since about 2011, and the site has gone from strength to strength since then. You’ve revitalised my wardrobe and taught me everything I know about proper menswear. I can’t thank you enough, and I hope to keep reading well into the future.

    Cheers, keep up the good work!

  2. It does indeed look very swish, Matt. And I like the way there’s a very visible image of Timothy Dalton right in the middle of one’s vision on the new splash screen

    I have noticed for some time now that if I take more than a few seconds to write anything on this blog, the CAPTCHA code time limit becomes exhausted. And the refresh button next to it doesn’t do anything. Which means copying and pasted what I’ve composed into a new page. A mild inconvenience but one that might put off new visitors from pitching in. Does this happen to anyone else? I’m on an iPhone 6, OS 9.3.2

  3. Dear Matt,

    Thank you very much – your site’s new design is definitely an improvement over the old version!
    One comment: I think there are some articles which are not correlated to the films but should be. F.i. an article about M’s double-breasted dinner jacket in GF – I don’t find it under “GF” (always had to use “search” to find it).

    Best regards,
    Renard

  4. Hi Matt,
    great update for my favourite blog on the net. More appealing and easier to navigate. I just wish it would be still easier to get to the core articles of the site,namely the main articles about Bond’s outfits from the movies. As it is they get buried deeper and deeper in the archives of the site. My wish would be a reference link list via which you could easily find the article about any (tailored) outfit of the movies. Just a suggestions. Otherwise keep up the great work!

  5. Excellent, Matt. This site has been an important part of my sartorial education (as someone who only came to appreciate well tailored clothing in mid-life). I always look forward to what I learn on the Suits of James Bond.

  6. This looks great Matt, I have been following your blog for a few years with great interest, this new look is very stylish.

  7. Matt,

    I love the new look for the blog. A couple of things though, it might help if you had a drop down listing for all of the non-Bond movies and TV series instead of just two or three (although since it is easier to scroll through the entries, that might not be such a big deal). You also might want to think about putting a tag cloud on the main page as well – that might also make it easier to find individual entries. One other thing, if you get the time, you might want to look for a pair of movies called: Salt and Pepper (1968) and One More Time (1970) with Peter Lawford and Sammy Davis Jr. While Davis was clad in pure late 60s Carnaby style – hello Nehru jackets – fine if you like that sort of thing ( I actually do), Lawford had some very nice outfits made by Doug Hayward, which would be appropriate for this blog.

  8. Very nice new look! At the risk of requesting too much, and I know it’ll propably be quite a bit of work due to tags having to be re-done. But I personally feel that when you go to “The Films”, and select let’s say “Goldfinger”. It should just be the articles on the suits worn in Goldfinger along with articles exclusivily related to goldfinger, for example, the Catch Me If You Can suit. But as it is now, there’s propably 10-20 different articles on the Goldfinger page that cover many different films, for example your article on Bond’s Brown Suits and Warm-Weather Black Tie Etiquette. It becomes quite a few articles on each page if you’re just looking for articles on the suits of Goldfinger.

    That’s just my opinion, perhaps other may disagree. But I feel it would improve the site if each movie under “The Films” is only a range of articles on the suits worn in that film, as it is now, “The Films” becomes a bit useless when half of the articles seem to exist under each film. Sorry to be a bit requesty and propably nonconstructive, but it’s just my two cents 🙂 Loving the re-design though, great font choices! Classy, but understated. Not posh or fancy, simply purely good-looking solid design, what Bond would’ve wanted!

  9. Love the new look. Its classy, creative and understated. Cheeky too with the Button ‘double 0’

  10. Nice new look.

    I have to take issue with the naming of the cocktail cuffs. I’ve never heard them call Portofino or Neopolitan cuffs. And neither has an eminent Neopolitan shirtmaker that I recently showed them to; “I’ve never seen those before”, he said.
