Brands from Bond
Bond fans are awaiting the highly anticipated release of Spectre, the new Bond film. The film is set to be released on November 6th and will be the fourth modern Bond film starring Daniel Craig. To make the wait a little easier, we thought we would throwback to Casino Royale and Skyfall, where we see Craig sport both Barbour and Sunspel in his role as Bond.
The Sunspel ‘Riviera’ Polo

Sunspel has been a prime label for Bond, the brand even recreated the iconic blue shorts worn by Sean Connery in Thunderball, 1965. In the 2006 film Casino Royale, Daniel Craig is seen in several Sunspel shirts. Most famously the blue polo which was tailored especially for him to wear by the brand. The design is based on the 1950’s classic made for the Italian Riviera, hence how it adapted to its name, the Riviera polo shirt.
The Barbour Beacon Sports Jacket

The original jacket worn by Daniel Craig in Skyfall was the Barbour Tokihito Sports Jacket. Director Sam Mendes wanted to add a vintage theme to this particular scene, which was achieved perfectly with the use of this jacket. The Barbour Beacon Sports jacket is a recreation of the one used in the film, looking pretty much the same with a few small changes along the way. This jacket is ideal for the unpredictable British weather with its 100% waxed cotton outer. It sports a slim fit which contributes to its classic and stylish look.
