Dressing like James Bond
James Bond’s suits are invariably in block colours – plain blacks, greys and midnight blues. With the exception of Roger Moore, who was far more the business Bond than any of the others, 007 doesn’t do pinstripe. By the same rationale, he seldom wears a 3-button suit, but favours a 2-button jacket for work and a 1-button for play – although just like Bond, we should aspire to combine the two whenever possible.
The best thing about 1 and 2-button jackets is that whilst they are sharp enough to ease the knickers off an unsuspecting American attaché, they offer enough movement to scale the wall of a foreign embassy. Cheers!
