Skyfall press-release Dress Shirt

Though this outfit is probably not going to featured in 2012's Skyfall, it has gathered much attention for being the newest suit ensemble designed by Tom Ford for Daniel Craig and James Bond. The light blueish-grey colored shirt really emphasizes the serious and perhaps darker side of James Bond, and also a great piece to get your hands on this winter.

DAD Ice Palace Turtleneck

Though idea of luxurious turtleneck seems to be an oxymoron at times, I assure you the original Ballantyne Cashmere Sweater is one of the finest made. For most of us shelling out $500 or more for a sweater isn't very practical. But hey, you can still get nice and cozy in these turtlenecks:

TND Leather Jacket

In one of the most memorable teasers of James Bond's career, he destroys a terrorist arms bazaar and escapes with a pair of Soviet nuclear torpedoes mounted on an L-39 Albatros.

Casino Royale Grey Hospital Sweater

Recovery can be a pain, but 007 sure knows how to dress comfortably during the healing process. Under his robe, we sports a grey knit v-neck, the kind you throw on when you have a chill or want to go rake the leaves. One you know looks perfect on it's own, or adds some texture to your otherwise flat ensemble. And get some soup.

Goldfinger Wine colored golf sweater

The highly disputed Golf sweater was actually wine or maroon colored, not black as originally thought. The original was a Slazenger brand sweater, similar to the brand of golf balls Goldfinger puts with. This make is now almost impossible to find even with your eye fixed on ebay. So here are some options for the not so vintage friendly.

Here's one new take straight from Savile Row!

OHMSS Orange Turtleneck

One of Lazenby's more memorable looks, sans skis, was his orange turtleneck and the light tan leisure suit. He sports it when meeting his future father in law for the first time, Marc-Ange Draco. He looks clean, casual, ready for any situation he comes to. The Orange turtleneck is a '60s Bond staple.
In my research I found it was hard to find a simple, orange, turtleneck. Many of the turtlenecks out there are drab, boring, black or grey, nothing in bright shades, at least for men. But there were two offerings I found rather distinct.

One affordable...

Casino Royale Bathroom Fight Boots

Though I am showing the whole outfit from Daniel Craig's debut as Britain's finest secret agent, I will focus this post on his footwear. In particular, the suede chukkas he dons while beating the living hell out of Dryden's contact in what is known by the fans as "the bathroom fight scene". The originals are believed to be John Lobb Romsey boots but they've never been officially identified. Chukkas have gained popularity in the past 10 years, being focused on more and more by style magazines as well as many fashion brands. Now more than ever, you can find a pair in any price range. Lucky for you, Bond sports a similar pair in Quantum of Solace, so get one pair for two looks!
