Ballantyne Cashmere Sweater
In the 2002 movie Die Another Day, Pierce Brosnan as James Bond, wears a number of products from Scottish firm Ballantyne Cashmere. He stays warm in Graves' ice palace thanks to his chunky charcoal grey turtleneck sweater (and some action and hot girls as well). The sweater was made specifically for 007, and Ballantyne sold the same sweater in its store on Bond Street, London and selected stockists.
Bond girl Miranda Frost (played by Rosamund Pike) wears a frost grey boucle cashmere polo selected from the Ballantyne Cashmere Autumn Winter 2002/2003 collection.
Founded in 1921 in the small Scottish town of Innerleithen, Ballantyne Cashmere is a prestigious men's knitwear label which uses only first-rate natural cashmere yarns. Ballentyne Cashmere buys raw cashmere fibre from goat herds in Inner Mongolia and spins the yarn in Scotland. The meticulous care that goes into the selection of raw materials, crafted into everything from chunky cable knit pullovers to cashmere cardigans, has remained a stalwart hallmark of the label throughout its history. Dawson International, which currently owns the Ballantyne Cashmere brand, is based in Kinross, Tayside. The group now has a new Italian design and marketing team for its Ballantyne brand.
