James Bond has been a style icon for 60 years and there isn’t a man on earth who hasn’t wished for a touch of the suave sophistication of 007. The most famous spy in the world has always been impeccably dressed and in celebration of the release of No Time To Die, here are some tips for dressing like James Bond.
Formal Wear – Bond has always excelled at the suited and booted look. Whether cool, calm and collected in a casino or dinner with an evil mastermind, the tailoring has always been immaculate. The trick is the fabric and the fit. A suit needs to fit just right, especially if you’re going to be getting into gunfights and performing army rolls! OK, well, just the ability to raise your arms up without the suit pulling on your arms is a good start. The seam of the suit jacket should meet the line where your shoulder meets your arm perfectly.
Casual Wear – When Bond isn’t looking sharp in a suit, he is definitely rocking the casual look. On a beach or a bar, he doesn’t always want to be restricted by a suit. These casual styles are much easier for the average guy to replicate. Without the need to hide laser gadgets or a handgun, we can pair up casual t-shirts and trousers with clever layering just like Bond does. Knitwear also makes an appearance for Daniel Craig, with stylish ribbed cardigans and even Timothy Dalton’s fisherman jumper could be an inspiration for Bond fans during the winter months.

Watches – Bond’s Rolex became almost iconic as his suits and this was the watch of choice for all movie Bonds until 1995. Since then, Omega has been the watch brand of choice for the more modern Bond. Omega’s Seamaster Diver is the range that gets this special movie advertising and it’s a classic style that exudes quality and will last a lifetime.
Accessories – So, we think of the suits and the Aston Martins but what else is synonymous with 007 style? No special agent’s look is complete without the clever use of accessories. As Bond is often in tropical locations, he needs a cool pair of sunglasses. Like a good watch, a quality pair of sunglasses will not only look stylish but will last for years.
Cocktail shaker – To finish the look, there is only one thing left. You probably won’t be able to afford an Aston Martin DB5 but you could probably stretch to a martini! Making a martini is actually very simple. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add 4 parts vodka and 4 parts gin to 1 part dry vermouth and strain into a cold martini glass. A slice of lemon or an olive and you have the perfect 007 drink, shaken not stirred!
