If you’re after that James Bond style but don’t have access to all of the designer clobber he does then listen up. This James Bond style guide will show you how to get the Spectre look.
Recently been hired by MI5? Going on a secret mission that nobody can know about? No? Well, we can’t all be James Bond (as much as we’d all love to be), but that doesn’t mean we can’t get his style. Whether you’re flying through the Alps catching the latest villain or nipping up the shop for a pint of milk, you can get the James Bond look without the fear of being shot.
Some of you may lack the Aston Martin and various high-flying gadgets but a suit is something that any man can own. Whether you’re going into the office (MI5) or simply on a more formal occasion, a suit will be your best friend.
A black suit would be your best option for versatility and style. Your shoes will need to be both comfortable and smart, so this pair of derby shoes from Base London is a smart option, working great with your suit and any other formal occasion you can think of.
I don’t know if you’re aware, but Bond doesn’t always stroll around in a perfectly tailored suit, he does like to throw on something a little more casual from time to time. Whether you’re interrogating suspected villains or on a casual day out (only slightly different scenarios) you can have a casual look that still looks smart and be the perfect transitional look.
Try wearing a grey roll-neck jumper with a classic peacoat in navy as these colours work great together. Throw on a pair of trousers in the same colour as your roll neck jumper, or, mix up the shades a touch, as grey is a great colour to do this with. To finish the look of wear a pair of brown brogues, just to add that little bit extra smartness to it.
If you’re not feeling the brogues then try a pair of trainers in white, they would work just as well with the outfit and adds a bit of comfort to you and your look.
If you’re a globe trotter and like to swing by the mountains from time to time then you’ll want an outfit appropriate to do the job. You may not be there for the same reason as 007, but you can still look as good as him whilst on your holiday.
With winter knocking on our door you’ve begrudgingly put away all of your summery clothes and opted for something a little warmer. This jacket from Schott is a great alternative to a longer overcoat, short and fitted it makes the perfect accompaniment to any mans wardrobe. Try wearing it with a black jumper and a pair of fitted dark rinse jeans, and polish the look off with a pair of brogue boots for that smarter feel.
I don’t know how many of you will be holding a machine gun this winter, but it certainly isn’t me, a pair of sunglasses will do just fine. 007 has an enviable style and he is arguably one of the coolest men on the planet, even if he is fictional. Sunglasses may not be on the top of your list, but having a pair for those rare sunny days in winter (my favourite kind of day) will help you out, not only for your eyes but for your style as well.
If you are going for that James Bond look then buying a pair in a more classic style will work better for you. Brands such as Persol and Ray-Ban are spot on for this, really playing on the classic aesthetic and producing amazing sunglasses that will suit most faces and go with anything in your wardrobe.
