British Style | James Bond

British MI6 agent James Bond is probably one of the most iconic spies to have ever graced the silver screen. 60 years on from the release of Dr. No, the James Bond franchise is still thrilling audiences around the world. After the release of No Time To Die, every Bond fan and film buff eagerly awaits the announcement of who will take over from Daniel Craig to become the latest iteration of agent 007. Suave and sophisticated, James Bond is a discerning gentleman with an iconic sense of style that goes beyond the sharp suits and tuxedos he is most known for. A timeless British fashion icon, James Bond has worn some of the best British and International menswear brands throughout the years. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the James Bond franchise, we’re taking a closer look at some of our favourite fashion brands and looks that 007 made famous.


In Skyfall, Bond wears one of Barbour‘s signature wax jackets throughout the Scotland scenes, tying in nicely with the brand’s own extensive Scottish heritage. Daniel Craig sports the Barbour Beacon Heritage Sports Jacket, paired with a blue cashmere jumper, corduroy trousers and leather brogue boots. The Beacon Heritage Sports jacket is made from 6oz Sylkoil olive wax with the classic Barbour Tartan lining. The jacket has a single welted chest pocket with two lower bellows pockets and two zipped back pockets. This style is complete with Donegal tweed detailing and a detachable three-button throat latch.


Daniel Craig has worn Dents‘ signature leather gloves in several James Bond films. First up are the Fleming leather driving gloves, which were worn by Bond in Spectre’s Rome scenes, most noticeably whilst he was driving the iconic Aston Martin DB10. The Fleming driving gloves are a sophisticated style perfect for any discerning gentleman. Crafted in England, the gloves are designed with smooth black leather with perforated detailing and finished with branded wrist straps. In Skyfall, Bond also sports a pair of Dents’ unlined leather gloves in several of its scenes, these gloves are a timeless classic crafted from smooth black leather.

John Smedley

In Skyfall, Bond also wears one of John Smedley‘s classic knitwear pieces, the Bobby V-neck pullover in Shanghai. Bond wears this timeless garment with a crisp white shirt, black tie, Billy Reid peacoat, grey trousers and the Dents’ unlined leather gloves. The Bobby Pullover is one of John Smedley’s most recognisable designs, one which epitomises the brand in terms of its classic style and unparalleled quality. Available in multiple colours, The Bobby Pullover features a classic v-neck and is made from extra-fine New Zealand Merino Wool which gives a luxuriously soft texture.

Billy Reid

Another brand to feature in the Skyfall movie is the American brand, Billy Reid. The Brand provided multiple coats for the production of Skyfall, and it was the Bond Peacoat which was featured in the film’s Shanghai scenes. Surprisingly, this navy blue peacoat was not named after the famous 007, but it was actually named after Billy Reid’s Bond Street store in New York long before. Thanks to Skyfall, the Bond Peacoat is one of the brand’s most iconic pieces to date. It’s crafted in Italy from warm Melton wool with a timeless double-breasted silhouette and comes complete with handwarmer pockets and genuine horn buttons.


Featured in some of Skyfall’s action scenes, James Bond sports a pair of Sanders’ Hi Top Chukka Boots in a rich chocolate brown colour. A more casual look for Bond, these chukka boots were paired with a racer jacket, roll neck jumper and trousers. Dedicated shoemaker since 1873, Sanders provides high-quality footwear with a timeless appeal in Northamptonshire, England. The Hi-Top Chukka Boots are expertly crafted from a rich chocolate brown suede paired with a chunky crepe sole.
