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!

Never Say Never Again Black IP wristwatch

Black plated watches have become a fad in the past couple of years, from gigantic 50mm U-Boats to custom Rolex's adorned by the likes of Daniel Craig himself. But it surprised me when I found one on the arm of Sean Connery's James Bond in the Thunderball remake: Never Say Never Again. In this scene 007 cuts his chains with his Q equipped wristwatch, which has a simple non-numeric dial and very unique 5 row bracelet. It is believed that the watch in the film was a Porsche Designed timepiece from the 1980s. But this model is long discontinued, thought you might find a few on ebay, sometimes fetching prices over $2,000. These models embrace look of this watch while updating it's classic features:

Nixon Cannon Watch - Men's All Black $125.00
