TIME TO SAVE THE WORLD AGAIN? – The wristwatches of James Bond

September 7, 2015

Omega recently announced the release of their new Spectre Seamaster 300m – which follows up on the Seamaster Aqua Terra that was announced earlier in the year – both of which will adorn Daniel Craig’s wrist in the upcoming James Bond film, SPECTRE. Interestingly, both the Aqua Terra and the Spectre Seamaster have a decidedly retro […]

It’s rare that I get excited about a Bond themed event, but this is somewhat of an exception. On August 20, seven of the most beautiful and glamorous James Bond ladies will be in Oslo for one unforgettable event entitled ‘BOND GIRLS ARE FOREVER’. The former Bond Girls will bring their classic charm and glamour […]

THE MAN WHO FLEW TO EARTH – James Bond Stunt Performer Directs Incredible Stunt Documentary

July 25, 2015

0

With the latest Bond adventure, SPECTRE, due to hit our screens this October, it’s worth remembering that so much of what makes Bond great comes down to the dedicated stunt performers who allow 007 to do the impossible and to save the day. Roy Taylor is one of those stunt performers, whose credits include SPECTRE, […]

READY FOR ACTION – Anthony Sinclair unveil their first ready-to-wear Conduit Cut suit

May 7, 2015

We’ve all dreamed of being Bond. Admit it, you’ve done the gunbarrel in the mirror and uttered the immortal line in your best Sean Connery accent. Sadly, for many of us, the thrill of the adventure, the exotic locations, the fast cars and beautiful women are all tantalizingly out of reach, forever consigned to fantasy. […]

January 26, 2015

British watch manufacturer Bremont might not be the best known brand to those who move outside of the somewhat cliquey horological circles, but it has been steadily making a name for itself over the last twelve years or so by making solid, durable pilot watches for adventurers, military aviators, as well for as the occasional […]

Kingsman: The Secret Service has managed to pull off a film merchandising first by teaming with online luxury menswear retailer Mr. Porter to create the Kingsman Collection, comprising of suiting, clothing, and accessories, as used in the actual film. I was fortunate enough to get a chance to visit the Kingsman Collection pop up store […]

TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY – Kingsman: The Secret Service

After having its name changed from simply The Secret Service, and the release date of the film moved from October of 2014, Kingsman: The Secret Service finally premiered at London’s Leicester Square on Wednesday.     Due to these changes, there has been an almost palpable sense of anticipation for the film. However, keeping the […]

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE – A Closer Look At The Coolest Spy Film Of 2015

January 16, 2015

As a huge fan of British spy films and television, it’s delightful to see a film released that so embraces the genre. Kingsman: The Secret Service is a spy film packed with irreverent homage to the spy films of the past, but – like the Savile Row suiting in the films – has taken the […]

REBELS WITH A CAUSE: THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN’S RIDE – Dapper gents ride out in the fight against prostate cancer.

As a fan of both classic tailoring and custom motorcycles, I often found it difficult to reconcile these two apparently disparate stylistic ideals. After all, the traditional view of the motorcyclist is generally of a individual whose approach to their attire is rather more “relaxed”, and whose grooming routine extends to using Swarfega to clean the […]
