No Time To Die Long Sleeve Henley

Updated October 26, 2021. The white long-sleeved Henley from Rag & Bone features heavily in No Time To Die – In fact, it might be the single piece of clothing with the most screen time. With that in mind, I wanted to revisit my list of budget-friendly alternatives for the piece. In the movie, Bond wears the […]

Live and Let Die Black Silk Shirt

Live and Let Die has always been my favorite Roger Moore Bond movie and, aside from the denim-on-denim island look, it’s full of great sartorial moments. One of my favorite casual looks from the film is the black short-sleeve shirt with tan trousers. Admittedly, wearing black is a bit unconventional in warm weather but both Roger […]

From Russia With Love Gingham Shirt (Jacket)

Sartorial-minded Bond fans all know Connery’s Bond had an inclination for gingham shirts—most famously the blue gingham and pink gingham camp collar shirts he wears in Thunderball (Check out Iconic Alternatives’ options for the Thunderball shirts here). But gingham’s first appearance in the franchise actually happens during Bond’s romantic picnic with Sylvia Trench in From Russia With Love.  When the phone rings, […]

2021 Casino Royale Sunspel Riviera Polo

UPDATE: My original list of Sunspel Riviera Polo alternatives was one of my most popular posts in 2020. Unfortunately, most of the alternatives I found aren’t available again this year. I didn’t want to keep sending you to a bunch of broken product links, so I decided to revisit this post and find a new […]

Casino Royale Blue Rugby Shirt Alternative

During the climactic action sequence in Venice, Bond wears a blue long-sleeve rugby shirt over a grey mélange Sunspel t-shirt. (Check out Matt Spaiser’s article over on Bond Suits if you want to know what makes it a rugby shirt instead of a polo shirt.) This rugby shirt’s origin is a bit of a mystery—it wasn’t made […]

As we say goodbye to 2020, I’m revisiting some of my favorite budget-friendly alternatives from this past year. All of the items on this list are here for two reasons: 1) they’re great budget-friendly alternatives, […]

Sean Connery wearing black long-sleeve polo in Thunderball

Thunderball Black Long-Sleeve Polo Alternatives

As my own small tribute to Sean Connery, I wanted to mark his passing with a post about one of my favorite outfits of his. I couldn’t decide between the tweed hacking jacket from Goldfinger or the black long-sleeve polo from Thunderball so I let my Instagram followers vote and the long-sleeve polo was the clear winner.  I really […]

Bond and Q in Thunderball

Orlebar Brown Thunderball Linen Shirt

When you’re looking for some warm-weather wardrobe ideas, you can’t go wrong taking a cue from Bond’s attire in Thunderball. Connery’s Bond has probably the best tropical wardrobe of the franchise and his clothing in Thunderball is the apex.  One of the best things about Connery’s tropical wardrobe is that it is very simple–a lot of camp collar […]

Bond and M in the Bahamas in Casino Royale

Casino Royale Sunspel Riviera Polo

The Sunspel Riviera Polo Bond wears in the Bahamas is one of the iconic looks from Casino Royale, which is a little surprising because in a lot of ways, it’s so … basic. He wears a navy polo with tan trousers. I’m sure thousands of people wear the same outfit every day but there’s something special […]
