QOS Shawl Collar Cardigan



The ideal cardigan isn't hefty or too light. It keeps you warm but itsn't too stuffy when you're indoors. Take for instance 007's shawl collar cardigan from Quantum of Solace. He isn't exactly fighting a blizzard when buttoning up with delightful throwback to McQueen. It's the perfect grab and go piece for when it might be a little chilly or if you aren't quite sure what you might face outdoors. It's grandpa chic, something you should embrace as you age.

My new Tumblr

Hello fellow Bond aficionados. I started a new tumblr and wanted to give you all a heads up. It's mostly fashion-oriented and not much Bond material but if you appreciate the finer things in life as Bond does, you might enjoy it.

The dress shoe for all your formal needs, the patent leather shoe is as much a part of the image of bond as the tuxedo. You can buy any tuxedo you want, from $100 to well over $2000 but if your shoes don't shine, you will look incomplete. With these pairs, you will be in Bond's shoes.

Quantum of Solace Brown Suede Boots



Though similar to the pair Bond dons in the pre-title sequence bathroom fight of Casino Royale, this pair stands out as a dark chocolaty brown rendition which 007 wears in Haiti, at Mathis's villa, and at the Eco-Hotel. How much more versatile can a Bond shoe be?
