These exclusive pieces join our existing James Bond Collection, much of which has also been refined, bringing them ever closer to the on-screen originals.
Our long-standing connection with the James Bond franchise originates from Dr. No (1962). Terence Young, Dr. No’s director and a loyal Turnbull customer himself, dispatched the late Sean Connery to Jermyn Street ahead of his role as the very first Bond of the silver screen. It was this relationship that saw the creation of the now-iconic Dr. No shirt. Following the sad news of Sir Sean Connery’s death, our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans. The original James Bond continues to be an inspiration to all at Turnbull.
Leading the new additions is an exceptional voile dress shirt inspired by the shirt made for Pierce Brosnan as James Bond in Die Another Day (2002) featuring a pleated front, double cuffs and our classic T&A collar. Here, the exact number and spacing of the intricately detailed pleats have been immaculately recreated in homage to its on-screen original.
Inspired by Bond’s love of a classic pocket square and created using knowledge gleaned from archived receipts, a hand-rolled voile pocket square has also been introduced. A pure white pocket square is a regular feature of Bond’s tailored ensembles and gives devoted fans a chance to accessorise authentically.
We also add three new Brosnan-era ties to the collection, from Tomorrow Never Dies (1995), The World is Not Enough (1999) and Die Another Day (2002), respectively.
“From the outset, Turnbull & Asser was the perfect fit for James Bond; built to withstand any situation with stylish sophistication. Our relationship with the James Bond film franchise over many decades has inspired this new and exciting capsule which embodies those original features and qualities of the ‘Bond’ wardrobe.”
Steven Quin, Royal Warrant holder and Retail Director at Turnbull &Asser.
Beautifully handcrafted in our English workrooms, its James Bond Collection, like all Turnbull & Asser products, are characterised by their longevity as well as their personality. It is this strength of character in Bond, as with Turnbull, that keeps our two distinctly British institutions so intimately linked.
