Suit Supply Suit $499 vs. Custom Tom Ford Suit Approx. $5-10K
Suit Supply has been putting out the best in affordable, stylish suiting for a while now. This one is no exception, with its understated fabrication and slim fit.
Ray-Ban Aviators $149 vs. Tom Ford James Bond Sunglasses Approx. $450
Aviators are always a good option, and for the price, we suggest going with the originals.
J.Crew Allerton Blutchers $178 vs. Crockett & Jones Approx. $715
They say the shoes make the man. Well they can also destroy the man's wallet if he isn't careful. This clean option from J.Crew is a smart buy.
Vintage Omega $700 vs. New Omega Approx. $3000
New watches are like new cars. They depreciate over time. However, going with something vintage means you'll not only look classic, but are making a smart investment as well.
Billy Reid Peacoat $695 vs. Billy Reid Peacoat
Turns out, the peacoat Bond wears in the new movie is from our good friend Billy Reid, and isn't crazy expensive, especially given the razor sharp details like leather under the collar and pocket flaps.
"The name is Woolf. Jake Woolf." Meh, doesn't have the same ring to it. But I can't help myself from trying because I'm genuinely STOKED for the new James Bond movie, Skyfall, set to hit theaters November 9. And while all the action (both violent and intimate) and Sam Mendes behind the lens are certainly enough to get me to buy a ticket, as a menswear nerd I also can't wait to see what outfits Bond will be sporting in this latest installment to the historic franchise. Once again, Tom Ford was the man chosen to provide 007's custom suits -- which while beautiful basically makes them impossible to get one of your own, unless you have close to 10 G's to spend on a new suit and an incredible hookup. If so, could you send that our way? But, for those guys who still want the Bond look but don't exactly have the Bond budget, we've put together this comprehensive list of items to buy that we think will definitely up your game. Disclaimer: Beautiful women or an awesome British accent are not included.
