Tom Ford is Bond's tailor for the 2008 movie Quantum of Solace, and will return in the 2012 movie SkyFall.
Quantum of Solace
Actor Daniel Craig is reported to have ruined around 40 bespoke suits during filming of Quantum of Solace. "It really is a crime. It makes me weep every time. They're great suits," Craig told the British press.
Tom Ford was very secretive about the items that were used in Quantum of Solace, but one item is confirmed: a black Cardigan. This cardigan was available in the exclusive Tom Ford retailers but is now sold out.
Another item, is a grey coat which bears the name "James Bond". It is the only Tom Ford clothing item (besides the sunglasses) that was branded as a "James Bond" item. It resembles the coat seen in the last scene of Quantum of Solace, although that one is dark blue or black.
Other Tom Ford items included the blue jacket seen in the fight scene, ties, and of course the Tom Ford TF108 sunglasses (read more about those here).
Bond will wear Tom Ford suits, ties and sunglasses again in SkyFall. Tom Ford worked closely with SkyFall costume designer Jany Temime to create a range of made-to-measure tailored clothing, eveningwear, suits, shirts, knitwear, ties, accessories and eyewear (sunglasses). Tom Ford, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "I could not be happier to be dressing Daniel Craig again in the next James Bond film. James Bond epitomizes the TOM FORD man in his elegance, style and love of luxury. I am thrilled to move forward with this iconic character."
Tom Ford representatives have announced to Bond Lifestyle chief correspondent David Zaritsky that the two new styles of suit Craig will wear in SkyFall are the Falconer and the Wetherby. The Falconer is a slim suit that Colin Firth wore in the Single Man. See also the Bond Lifestyle guide to products and location in SkyFall.
