Even the finest of t-shirts will never look refined—though they may feel more refined. Because Bond is still unrefined in Casino Royale , the abundance of t-shirts throughout the film shows Bond before his discovered his more mature sense of style.
But he has yet to learn the benefits of always wearing a shirt with a collar. Bond finally puts on a business suit and a tie for his meeting with Vesper Lynd on a train ride to Montenegro , but Vesper is not impressed.
By the cut of your suit, you went to Oxford or wherever. Naturally you think human beings dress like that. This younger Bond in Casino Royale would rather be wearing his t-shirts than playing dress up in what he thinks is merely a stuffy uniform that is necessary to be a part of society.
In the films made before Casino Royale , Bond was typically comfortable in his suits and took pride in the clothes he wore. I have a dinner jacket. There are dinner jackets and dinner jackets; this is the latter.
And I need you looking like a man who belongs at that table. I sized you up the moment we met. We never see the dinner jacket that Bond already has, but we can assume that is is one of the cheap models from the time that has two or three buttons on the front and notched lapels, being essentially no more than a black suit with satin silk or polyester trimmings.
But once Bond dons the dinner jacket and admires how perfect it looks in the mirror, he has taken a step forward to becoming the proper, more sophisticated Bond.
That is, until he removes it at the Casino table before the end of the game. It shows that he has let his guard down. It also makes him look like the croupier.
This three-piece suit demonstrates that Bond is now the more suave, confident and mature character from the previous twenty films. Bond now understands the suit and channels its power on his terms.
He would have been more comfortable wearing a tie and owned a proper dinner jacket. For Bond to not have established his own style until this point in his life is absurd.
Most people become set in their ways and are who they are by the time they are Though we find out that James Bond is still learning the ropes in the next film, Quantum of Solace , he is dressing much more maturely and stylishly on his own.
Maybe the director just wanted a shot of Bond thoughtfully looking at his reflection while wearing a tux! I agree with your last point. The short sleeved no tie and otherwise t-shirt wearing Bond is closest who Bond is in private.
Vesper showed him how to up his game, in more than one way. Being critical of him made him look in the mirror. After her death he could have stayed out of MI6 but he decided to go back in.
Now with more effort than ever before, looking at the bigger picture, going after the big bosses. So he started wearing his new armour, no one would ever hurt him again.
Brilliant idea for a post Matt — thoroughly enjoyed it and it has enhanced my appreciation of Casino Royale. Looking forward to more like this!
She is a bit more provocative than his clothes actually justify. I suppose you prefer this one instead: Yes, it is true that Craig appears cocky in that scene but in my book that is still far better than looking sleazy or like somebody acting in a bad theatre play.
In any case that is not a sign of a refined character either. This site has had quite enough of that. When bond goes to poker night at the ocean club, would brosnans suit in in Cuba when he torches the clinic been more appropriate?
For me the t shirt thing reminds of Miami vice and as for Alfani , I used to sell it when I worked in retail , and it was an awful brand.
I might have had him wearing the grey linen suit from earlier. Its jacket had a woefully short appearance before he whips it off to drive.
The brand seems to be exclusive to them. The Alfani shirt is indeed unfortunate. It could have been a last-minute replacement for something else that had fallen through.
Hi Jovan sure did, ran across deep navy shirts all the time. These are just a few of the bond items that I would rather go the bespoke route rather than off the peg even bond did wear the latter.
Bond therefore has to resort to his only dinner jacket he has left. Le Chiffre notices this, but for some reason the script has him to remark that Bond had changed his shirt, instead of dinner jacket.
The clothes Bond changes into are identical to what he wears at the start of the poker game. Le Chiffre notices that Bond puts on a clean shirt after he knows Bond was in a bloody fight.
Did Vesper get him any spares? The filmmakers were probably more focused on having him tend to his wounds, refresh, and come back looking just as well-dressed than any logic here.
Wonder if Bond kept the jacket to remind him of Vesper. Would be nice to see it in Bond 25 as a reminder of how he started the Bonds.
Enjoyed reading your commentary per usual Matt but disagree with your final comment: I owned a lone, off-the-rack, poorly fitted cheap suit through my 20s and early 30s.
At the age of 36, I was assigned to work at an intelligence agency. During my inprocessing with my new civilian boss I was asked how many suits I owned and after answering was told to purchase at least two more suits, several dress shirts and ties, along with a proper pair of oxford dress shoes, and that I would need to wear them to work often.
Point being that the Bond character was an orphan and a career military officer — its neither unrealistic or absurd that he would wind up in a job that expanded his sartorial tastes.
The difference with you and Bond is that he had been wearing tailored clothes his whole life. Vesper points out that he learned to wear a suit from the stodgy people at his university.
And he would have had to wear tailored clothing as a younger man at school in his teens. Matt, I respectfully disagree with you.
In the train Bond looks, to quote Vesper, as a man who belongs at that train. It was a hit and miss idea from the script I guess.
They would have had Craig to wear a terrible suit in the train too so this idea would work. But indeed there a few oddities in the script. The final suit also striked me as not so well fitting as the first two, as yourself mentioned it in your article.
Waistcoat, sleeves… it looks like they ran out of time to make the final alterations… but is such thing possible in a Bond movie?
I even thought the suiting of the 3-piece was a bit uninteresting compared to the other two. Even the blue shirt and tie looked a bit self-on-self and flat compared to the other ties.
Another good original idea from the script but which ended poorly executed. That being said, I agree with the main idea of your article, of course.
Brioni was just too powerful for him. About the disdain artitude, I think people are making too big a deal of it. Both have the similar attitude when they met in the train anyway.
Great post Matt and good discussion. I do wish that with so much money involved in making the films and surely the knowledge that no small amount of Bond nerds like us will examine every detail!
Others I have mentioned before, like in Spectre — where did they get their evening clothes from for the train journey and why would they be in evening clothes for a train journey, aside from a gratuitous need to shoe-horn Bond into a dinner jacket?
Anyway apologies for the digression. Would a man with orange crates for furniture really have an extensive wardrobe that has endless amounts of designer suits, overcoats, watches, sunglasses, etc?
I agree that the unkempt flat was a bit of a miss in Spectre. But there were no orange crates. The furniture and decor was actually very tasteful — merely u organized.
And the flat itself was stunning. But I agree with you completely. So I just think there is a complete lack of taste after CR, QOS being average only good thing of the movie is the nice wardrobe.
The pea coat in Casino Royale is not the pea coat in Skyfall. However, there are many similar items that appear in multiple Craig films: Remember, the navy striped suit at the end of Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace are supposed to be the same suit since only moments have passed between the two films.
But even if sponsors stay the same, they want Bond to wear new things to sell new clothes! Realism was never a concern of the Bond films.
Generally I have to take up the cudgels for QoS: Good points, I grant you that the set and locations of QOS are very nice.
It was really a weak point -the screenwriters were in strike, and you have the feeling of a not totally finished script. Some scenes are hardly understandable sometimes at the first viewing.
And I also did not care much for the villains and the girls. Not the same presence and charisma as in CR. But maybe the lack of taste I mention started coming with Skyfall, you may be right.
Since Skyfall I have the feeling our hero is some kind of hipster and too fashionable for my tastes. I agree that the QoS suits flattered Craig better than the Brioni and we do have some memorable outfits in QoS dinner jacket, DB overcoat, mohair suit, polo and jeans outfit.
