Skyfall Style: James Bond

<data:blog.pageTitle />
This is my second installment of Skyfall style, today featuring the style of James Bond himself.  See my first Skyfall Style post featuring Eve Moneypenny here.  James Bond has always been one of the best dressed film characters, and Skyfall is no exception.

Outfit #1: Skyfall Macau Casino Style.  James wears a dark navy one-button Tom Ford O’Connor dinner suit with a black satin shawl collar, which is featured in the promo advertising.  It looks much brighter blue in the promo photos than it does in the movie!  James wears the suit with a Tom Ford white cotton dress shirt, black satin bow tie, black satin cummerbund, and a white linen pocket square.  My research indicates that the Tom Ford O'Connor dinner suit retails for $3,360.

Outfit #2: Skyfall Shanghai Style.  James wears a stylish, short navy peacoat with leather trim on the collar and pockets made by Billy Reid that retails for $695.  The real deal is currently on backorder with estimated ship date of January 20th, but you can put your order in at Billy Reid here.

 Outfit #3: Skyfall Scotland Style.  James wears a Barbour "X To Ki To" Sports Jacket with an N. Peal blue cashmere sweater and Crockett & Jones "Islay" boots in the Scotland scenes.  This Barbour jacket was only made in small quantities and I've read it is hard to find one, but the official Barbour site link is here.  You can buy the N. Peal "James Bond Skyfall Round Neck Sweater" at N. Peal for £219 here, and the Crockett & Jones "Islay" boots are available by mail order, site link here.

 I hope you enjoyed my Skyfall style recreations for James Bond!  Are there other characters from the movie that you would like to see me recreate outfits for less?  There are several options: M, Q, Sévérine, or Raoul Silva come to mind.  I hope you are having a great week so far, and thanks for reading!
