From Russia With Love Chalk stripe navy suit



Though many men might own a beautiful pinstriped navy suit, 007 goes for something extra. A Chalk stripe suit worn in the closing of From Russia With Love while floating through Venice will keep your own Tatiana Romanova on her toes.

Thunderball Slip-On Low Boots



One of 007's more interesting aversions were to laces. Fleming stated that Bond abhorred laces. This particular taste translated into the wardrobe of Thunderball where James Bond wore a pair of short lace-less boots in the fight with Colonel Bouvar.

Dr. No Trilby Hat



One of the most iconic pieces of headgear from the Connery-Era (minus Oddjobs Bowler) is the trilby 007 wears in both during the films as well as in his Gun-Barrel scenes (even if it wasn't Connery in them). It sees most of its screen-time in Dr. No when 007 arrives in Jamaica and is driven around in a convertible, how he keeps this thing on is anyone's guess. Get yourself a piece of this '60s style and you might forget about hos JFK killed the trend.

The traveling tie. Show up in Hamburg and what do you have around your neck? Why a distinctive copper tie, with a little bit of blue. It may be very '90s, but its a Bond classic, minus the talking BMW.

DAD Spread Collar Light Blue Dress Shirt



One of Brosnan's more defining aspects of Bond fashion was not only the inclusion of larger knots in his ties but also the spread collar to match them. Connery's early Bond wore point collars with a four in hand knot (like the novels) while Brosnan tended towards the spread with a Windsor or half Windsor knot which complements the overall fashion and cut of his Brioni suits. Get yourself one of these spread collars and tie up a good sized knot. And don't forget to straighten it, even underwater.
