Summon Your Inner Bond

Summon Your Inner Bond

The James Bond School of Style 

According to the survey and the article from the Daily Telegraph from the 2012. Sean Connery happens to be the best James Bond of all times. Roger Moore is there on the list, side by side with him, of course. Many will agree and many will disagree with this, but one thing is for sure, every James Bond has got some class and style. Here are the most important things that make 007 the stunning man that he is.

Hairstyle 

Different actors that played James Bond had different hairstyles, but there are some common places in that style. Your haircut needs to be well groomed and flawless. You will need to have straight hair to pull it off. Ask your barber to cut it more on the sides and to let it grow a bit longer on the top. Also, it needs to be well blended and texturized without sudden differences in length.

You need to keep it neat and well groomed which means visiting the barber every two or three weeks. Dry it with a towel and use gel after combing it tidily and making a side.

Suits 

While 007 mostly wears black suits, you can opt for other dark colors, as well. That is not the essential issue here. The thing that makes those suits look so gorgeous and stunning is that they are well tailored for the person wearing it.

An off-the-rack suit will never look so good on you like the one that has been tailored according to your body. It is not that easy to find somebody who makes good suits. Today, there are even the amazing iTailor online service that allows you to send in your measurements, they make a suit according to them and save your cut for future projects you may have.

Drinks

The first time James Bond gets his martini, it is from Dr. No in the movie with the same name. Dr. No presents Agent 007 with the medium dry martini that is shaken, not stirred and with lemon peel. To make this cocktail, you need to use 80ml of vodka with a little bit of martini and finish with a lemon twist. That would be the martini that Bond asks for, although he never points out the real recipe. However, the recipe that he gives in the book Casino Royal is for a cocktail named Vasper. Bond asks for one dry martini in a deep Champagne goblet. It consists of one measure of vodka and three measures of Gordon, topped with half a measure of Kina Lillet. All that is shaken and a lemon slice is put inside.

Accessories 

The entire look is nothing if you don’t have the necessary James Bond accessories. You need glasses that are classic and elegant in style and they have to fit you perfectly.

All your papers and docs need a nice and classy briefcase. Additionally, a nice watch is a must. Think Rolex when choosing your watch, if possible.

To make your 007 style complete, find some cool cufflinks, as well. Tie is a must, so check out this cool Hex tie, which is definitely something 007 agent would wear.

Pulling off the James bond style is all about elegance and quality, but also the way you act. This spy was an unforgettable and charming gentleman and that is why you need to act that way, otherwise, you are just a well dressed man.
