Daniel Craig's final appearance as the suave English spy. The Bond production team, to their credit, remained faithful with author Ian Fleming's fine taste in gentleman's attire. Sourcing many pieces from artisan's on Jermyn Street and St James's.
Daniel Craig's Classic Grey Suit
We start with the classic grey suit, which Bond is seen wearing after parking his classic Aston Martin V8 on Whitehall Court to The Ministry of Defence building. The Royal Horseguards Hotel's front entrance is seen with the union jack flag.
For any Bond fans staying at The Corinthia you can recreate the walk to MoD in no time...
Photographers appreciate Double O's who, after investing in a made-to-measure suit, are aware enough to remove their mobiles (tracking device) from trouser pockets.
Tom Ford O' Connor Grey Prince of Wales Suit
The O'Connor suit in grey is listed on Mr Porter, though adjustments for a personal fitting should be considered. A premium mid-weight fabric, tailored on the label's signature 'O'Connor' block, it's cut slim and has a neat single-breasted front with horn buttons.
Tom Ford White Shirt
Tom Ford make custom white shirts with cocktail cuffs, which many suspect were specifically made to compliment Craig's grey suit. They stock a slim-fit pinned collar double-cuff made with cotton poplin which is the closest ready made shirt to Craig's.
The official artisan is unknown. Though I recommend Turnbull & Asser's white cotton handkerchief. Sean Connery, and indeed four of the six actors who have played 007 had their shirts made-to-measure from the famed bespoke Shirtmaker on Jermyn Street.
Benson & Clegg Plain Slim Rhodium Tie Slide
The James Tie Slide is sold by Piccadilly Arcade's Benson & Clegg. Quintessential English bespoke cutters to high society, orginally located on Bury Street up until 1976.
In 1992 the company was granted their second Royal Warrant, to HRH The Prince Of Wales for the supply of buttons, badges and military neckwear.
Omega Seamaster 300m Watch
The Omega Seamaster 007 titanium edition is available from Ernest Jones with the mesh bracelet.
Crockett & Jones Highbury Shoes
A firm favourite of Craigs. He has worn no less than four styles by Northampton shoemaker Crockett & Jones, who have two small shops on Jermyn Street.
The Highbury is a plain fronted three eyelet derby shoe made from the fine black calf leather and a Dainite rubber sole. Perfect for the old streets of London.
Barton Perreira Sunglasses
The Barton Perreira limited edition shades are handmade in Japan from zylonite acetate.
The signature lightweight feel of the sunglasses is due to the resin-based polymer plastic used. Zylonite is tumbled for several days before being hand polished twice to create a seamlessly smooth surface.
Daniel Craig's Black Tuxedo Suit
The Tuxedo got its name from American club. Craig's No Time to Die Tuxedo outfit.
Tom Ford's Tuxedo
Craig's midnight blue Shelton satin tuxedo and trouser combination was featured in No Time to Die's 3rd promotional release.
Turnbull & Asser White Dress Shirt and Black Bow Tie
Turnbull & Asser Handkerchief
Turnbull & Asser's white cotton handkerchief once again will come in – handy.
Omega Seamaster 300m Watch
Bond: “Does it do anything?”
Q: “It tells the time.”
The Omega timepiece again.
It follows the exact format for genuine military-issue timepieces, the caseback is engraved with a series of numbers including 62, referring to the year of the very first 007 film, Dr No.
Bennett & Winch Holdal
The olive holdal is for those weekday getaway business trips. The understated look masks a unique 2-piece design. If you're investing in a made-to-measure suit, you'll want it protected.
It avoids hard, tight folds by allowing a jacket and trouser to be wrapped around the cylindrical bag, which is then secured with magnets and straps.
The olive holdal was sourced by the Bond's wardrobe team who spent several days window shopping around Mayfair and St. James's. Their boutique is on 73 Duke St, a short walk from author Ian Fleming's former home at 27 Green St.
Coincidentally, the Beatles lived further down at number 57. The only time all four would share a London address together. McCartney would move in with the Asher's after just a few months.
Crockett & Jones Black Shoes
The Highbury in black calf leather from Crockett & Jones again.
I personally recommend shoe trees for these small puppy investments. They absorb moisture gradually, drying them from the inside and reduces creasing of the vamp.
Daniel Craig's Caribbean Casual Outfit
Across the road from Bennett Winch on Duke Street in Mayfair is Barbour. The Bond production's wardrobe team sourced Craig's casual jacket for the scene in Cuba when he meets Paloma who is the bar drinking a bottled cherry soda.
The x - engineered Graham Casual Barbour jacket is no longer produced.
