Turnbull & Asser Limited Edition Evening Shirt & Bow Tie
Turnbull & Asser, the world renowned Jermyn Street shirt maker, launched a "Limited Collection" Shirt and Bow Tie combination which features in the film Casino Royale (2006).
It was back in 1962 that this most charismatic of film icons, was born. His name was Bond, James Bond. From the outset, every actor to play the roll of James Bond has invariably worn shirts and ties made by Turnbull & Asser. It is, therefore, only natural, that Daniel Craig in his debut film as the new James Bond in Casino Royale wears shirts and ties by Turnbull & Asser.
The "Limited Collection" shirt is made from a super fine, two fold, white-on-white cotton. Using a classic silhouette, the shirt has been designed with a unique collar, specifically designed by Turnbull & Asser, which is featured in the film. Further subtle details can be found including the mitred double cuffs and concealed front placket which, stylishly, hide the mother of pearl buttons underneath. The bow tie is made from raw Shantung silk, giving extra texture and a wonderful handle and tactility when touching the bow tie. The shirt and bow tie will add an air of sophistication to any gentleman's wardrobe: it is a "must have" item; a piece of cinema history. Just like James Bond.
The James Bond Casino Royale Limited Edition Evening Shirt & Bow Tie were available in Turnbull & Asser stores or online for £245. Currently the white dress shirt (£245) and black silk bow tie (£65) are available as separate items on the Turnbull & Asser website.
