The complete guide to James Bond's wardrobe
If there’s one man in pop culture that can save the world and look stylish doing it, it’s Bond. James Bond.
Throughout the decades, the MI6 agent has remained the icon of adventure, danger, sophistication, and of course, style. Now thanks to New York graphic designer Matt Spaiser, Bond’s many fashions are being catalogued on The Suits of James Bond. The blog records the outfits worn by all six actors who have played Bond over the years, from Dr. No to Skyfall. There’s even a section called “Literary Bond” where Spaiser explores the outfits worn by the character in Ian Fleming’s novels.
The blog also examines outfits worn by other key characters, including villains like Thunderball’s Emilio Largo and Goldfinger himself. The best part of the blog are Spaiser’s own comments, where he goes into detail about every aspect of each outfit and highlights connections between the various films. One such unexpected connection involves Bond’s prefered swimwear color: “Light blue appears to be Bond’s favourite colour for swimming trunks. We’ve seen it in From Russia With Love, Thunderball and Casino Royale.” Who knew Bond prefered blue?
Spaiser also makes sure we never forget Bond’s unique fashion choices, like Roger Moore’s safari jacket in The Man with the Golden Gun.
