    Is you picture hosted somewhere on the internet? Meaning, is there a site where they can be seen? If so, simply post the link to the picture here.

    If not, there are many free sites where you can upload pictures from your hard drive.

    Well maybe not cufflinks, but there's a great guy (calls himself 'Indy Magnoli) at Magnoliclothiers.com who does OUTSTANDING work! He makes tailored clothes strictly as seen on film, and James Bond is an enormous part of it (Indiana Jones is the other big chunk, but he seriously does everything)- I actually bought his 'Bahama Royale' shirt and 'Quantum Suit' and love them both! One of these days, I'd also love to pick up his Casino Royale leather jacket (airport scene- love that jacket)
    If I ever get married I'm sure I'll get his 007 Tuxedo as well, lol

    Love the shirt! I frequent many Bond clothing sites to see what I can't afford, haha. Lately, I've wanted the navy polo Bond wears when he meets up with M in CR, the scene where he is implanted with the tracking bug. Love that polo. Also been looking for the jacket he steals from Slate in QoS, and the chukkas he wears on the bike during these scenes.
  • Nice outfit Dahark, very chic and very Craig. Cute girlfriend too B-)

    For whatever it's worth, my father was a very sharp dresser and I remember after every new Bond movie, he would go out and replicate all the suits and outfits Bond wore that he liked. He particularly liked Sir Roger Moore's outfits.

    Should be fairly easy to track down the clothes as there are a LOT of sites that tell you what specific brands of clothes are used in films. There are also lots of cheaper versions that are very close. I have a navy polo from the Gap that looks identical to the one Craig wore in CR and it was only $15...but the Gap's clothes are so ridiculously oversized that I had to buy an extra-small! (I'm 5'9" and 160 pounds) Instead of the $300 chukkas I got a pair for $80...you just have to look around. Biggest problem in North America is that a lot of clothes are made for...unathletic body types and a lot of guys are used to wearing their clothes far too big.

    There was a great web article I read when CR first came out by a guy who was inspired to dress better because of Craig's Bond (and his girlfriend's appreciation of Craig's Bond...). It was really interesting to read how he found people reacting to him differently as he dressed better and with proper sizes - friends, family, co-workers, girlfriend. I referenced it to a friend who realized that women didn't dig him wearing the oversized polo shirts and baggy cargo shorts with sports sandals all the time. Apparently the girls at work were *very* complimentary when he started dressing better...

    The great thing about Craig's Bond is that the clothes are very basic but very classy looking. You can't go wrong wearing anything that he's worn, and I don't think anything will look too dated in the future.

    Oh too true! I remember one of my college professor's in particular- he dressed SO sharp! How? His entire wardrobe had been ordered in Europe!

    Yeah, I've looked around, most of the sites I find are ones that look EXACTLY like the ones from Bond, but cost way too much.

    While not EXACTLY on topic, but I'm pretty sure I got the dark blue version of Daniel Craig's shirt seen in these pics- from the 'DC spotted on Shooting Range' thread

    @Master_Dahark, nice! Loose-fitting Henley is what it looks like. I have a few myself, but they're tight-fitting.

    Here's a link @Creasy47. That blue polo you were talking about is at 59 pounds($96 American). If you're willing to spend, it's a steal for Bond novelty items.

    @0Brady, thanks for the link, frequented this site many times in the past. Gonna have to give that shirt another look, seems they've added some new links since the last time I was there.

    Indeed. He wears a pair of Adidas Gazelle 2.

    You can find more info on the Adidas sneakers and other SKYFALL clothes and accessories on James Bond Lifestyle. They've got everything.

    That colour combo seems to be hard to get hold of now.

    Has anyone come across similar shirts to the ones Craig wears in Skyfall and when he's been out and about during promotions? they seem to be either pinned or button downed at the collar- maybe with the buttons on the underside? just looking for a cheap high street alternative.

    Are the Gazelle's that Bond wears in the film the color 'Marine'? I found a pair online I'm going to purchase, but if it's not the same, I may pass. They look very similar, though.
  • Creasy they are navyblue with lightblue stripes

    On the other hand, Check out the custom cuffs lookalike orbis

    Was going to buy a pair of Gazelle's but found they're a much brighter blue in real life. Didn't look quite as good as they did on screen. Also a very narrow shoe.
