Find out how James Bond got his style from the tailors of Westminster
Producer Albert R ‘Cubby’ Broccoli once said of James Bond: ‘Regimes may rise and fall, lapels may widen or narrow, but ultimately he remains the old-fashioned suited hero.’ Since the release of Eon Production’s first Bond film, Dr No, in 1962, the character has been tailored by Anthony Sinclair (Sean Connery), Dimitrov ‘Dimi’ Major (George Lazenby), Cyril Castle, Angelo Vittuci and Douglas ‘Doug’ Hayward (Roger Moore), Benjamin Simon and Lambert Hofer (Timothy Dalton), Brioni (Pierce Brosnan) and Tom Ford (Daniel Craig), respectively. This talk will provide a fun tour of the London-based, Westminster tailors who suited James Bond, and discusses where they were based, who they were, and how they assisted in the creation of the image of the eponymous suited hero who endures today.
