Hi, First of all I am a big fan of your work. Congratulations! I have a question about the shirts worn by Daniel Craig in the scene in Shanghai. Are you acting on it a white COS shirt? Do you know what is the brand of pants worn by Daniel Craig in the same scene? I remember that it is gray. Thank you.
I'm a massive fan of this site. Do you know which COS shirt and tie it was? If so could you direct link? I'm putting together this outfit, already got the peacoat backordered :).
The pants worn in the Shanghai scene with this outfit are ACNE shark grey wall street slim-fit trousers, currently available in the Autumn Winter '12 collection.
Curious, you wore the same outfit when you visited London with David.... how does it feel to be the Bonds fashion inspiration?
@Howard: You noticed?
Did the shirt underneath the sweater have button sleeves or were they french cuff with cuff links?
Button sleeves.
Hello Remmert, do you know the exact type of the COS shirt? They seems to be not so expensive like TOM FORD shirts. Thank you Jörg
Does all clothes from the UK run small or just the "bond clothing"? I normally wear a L/XL (6'0 200lbs) and I bought one of these sweaters in XL and it fits like a medium. Same with Sunspel, same with Barbour, same with Billy Reid!
