This week on the From Tailors with Love Podcast, my co-host  Matt Spaiser from The Suits of James Bond and I take a look at the winter wardrobe of James Bond.

James Bond News

In James Bond news we also highlight the recent auction of Roger Moore’s dressing gown he wore in the final fight scene in Live and Let Die. It went under the hammer for £3,600.

Who made the dressing gown?

According to the sellers bio:

The dressing gown is composed form a flannel material made in Switzerland expressly for A. Sulka & Company Ltd London. Distinguished by it’s cross checked in blue, white and red complete with belt.

The vendor was the son of the late Brian Bailey who worked with Cubby Broccoli at Pinewood Studios. Brian was the Production Accountant and is named in the end credits of Live and Let Die.

Brioni release more Pierce images from their Tailoring Legends collection. Pierce looks crisp and suave. Matt and I briefly discuss our favourite eyewear scene also in this episode.

Pierce Brosnan watch

Pierce also fulfils ambassador duties at SIHH2019 representing Speake Marin. We’re hoping to get a spokesperson from Speake Marin on the podcast at some point so stay tuned.

Matt describes the suit which we believe to be a Tom Ford. Matt also describes in the podcast the signature differences between a Tom Ford suit and a Brioni suit.

What’s Daniel Wearing?

Daniel attends the launch of Green Book with Viggo Mortensen. Wearing what looks to be a John Smedley purple V-neck sweater. A Rag and Bone long sleeve henley. A R.W Williams kangaroo plaited ‘O’ ring belt and an Omega Aqua Terra Seamaster.

Mad about Mads

Mads Mikklesen looked devilishly handsome at the premiere of his latest movie, Artic. Single covered button jacket with peak lapels over a blue open collar silk shirt.

You can catch the trailer to his latest film Arctic in the YouTube link below. He gets chased by a polar bear. Looks rad.

James Bond Winter Wardrobe

On to the James Bond Winter Wardrobe. Matt picked out some beauts. A varied selection from 3 different Bonds.

I went a bit obvious, but immediate. These are the 3 winter wear outfits of Bond that sprung to mind immediately when we decided on the theme for the podcast.

The Olive Barbour jacket from Skyfall. As Matt writes on his site:

“The Barbour jacket is the limited edition by To Ki To, designed by Tokihito Yoshida. It is made in Barbour’s classic olive waxed cotton with three buttons down the front, flapped bellows pockets on the hips.” – Matt Spaiser, Suits of James Bond 

The Yellow Jump suit from The Spy who Loved Me and the Tom Ford Nylon Front Gillet in Spectre.
