Leaving behind the mind-blowing gizmos and the amazing life that James Bond has, it’s the style he holds that captures the eyes of the whole world. Ever since Sean Connery appeared as James Bond in Dr No (1962 release), the craze for the poignant elegance conveyed by the James Bond suit has never gone out of style. James Bond is the name of a fictional character playing the role a British secret service agent, created by Ian Fleming. We’ll just have to thank Ian Fleming for introducing a man who has inspired men style for a long while already. Let’s get down onto discuss more about the details of style exhibited by Mr. Bond throughout the years.

The Sandown Hat:

The Sandown Hat would be one of the least noticed detail from James Bond’s closet. Sean Connery was just out with a complete showcase of the hat from ‘Dr No’ till the ‘Gold Finger’ mission. Though not followed by the other actors who played Bond, this trilby style hat sure was a great spec of added grace to the stylish ensemble.

The Bow- Tie:

The moment someone hears the name James Bond, they just start visualising a man in his suit and a bow-tie. Bow-tie has been a favourite James Bond accessory from the times of Sean Connery till our current Bond, Daniel Craig. Bond usually appears with his bow-tie on party occasions, more usually on the parties where he is set to meet the villains

The Grey suit:

The grey suit just went out to be real popular only after Mr. James slipped into one. Though grey suit was endorsed by every actor who played Bond, it’s always Sean Connery in a grey suit that pops up in our mind. The British accent of dressing has already impressed masses through the walks and talks of Mr. Bond in the movies. The grey suit that stole the hearts of millions is a three-piece one which is Glen Plaid tropical weave in grey. It includes the waist coast, the suit with 2 buttons on the front and 4 buttons on its cuffs, light blue shirt with cocktail cuffs, along with the grenadine weave navy tie.

The Midnight Blue suit:

This is a very common suit that has been in a follow of attire throughout the James Bond series, only that we had mistaken it for black suits. The midnight blue dinner suits are tuxedos with black lapels worn with the bow-tie and white shirts. The colour of the suit finds the exact match of the blue colour of the midnight sky. One could only differentiate between the blue cloth and black lapel with the day light; else you’ll just miss the blue tone like so many have always did. This blue shade was slightly replaced by midnight velvet shade in ‘Diamonds are forever’ movie.

The Brown suits:

Never being a part of fashion in London, the brown suits made their way to decorate Mr. Bond in most of his missions throughout the series. These brown suits were traditionally worn on the country side and made of rusty cloth patterns like tweed and flannel, but DanielCraig had a better kind of material for his ‘Quantum of Solace’ venture.

That’s all folks about the basic details of James Bond style. It’s your time to get onto walk with elegance, the James Bond way. Just hop into one and you’ll never regret it.
