Our connection with the James Bond film franchise originates from Dr. No (1962). Terence Young – Dr. No’s director and a loyal Turnbull customer – once dispatched the late Sean Connery to Jermyn Street for a fitting ahead of his role as the first Bond of the silver screen. It was this relationship that saw the creation of the now-iconic Dr. No shirt.
A later addition to the collection is an exceptional voile dress shirt inspired by the shirt made for Pierce Brosnan as James Bond in Die Another Day (2002). Featuring double cuffs, our classic T&A collar, and a pleated front – immaculately recreated to the number and spacing of the intricately detailed pleats in homage to its on-screen original.
Inspired by Bond’s love of a classic pocket square, our hand-rolled voile pocket squares epitomises his elegance and class. A pure white pocket square is a regular feature of Bond’s tailored ensembles and gives devoted fans a chance to accessorise authentically.
“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, the James Bond Collection, like all Turnbull & Asser products, is characterised by its longevity as well as its personality. It is this strength of character in Bond, as with Turnbull, that keeps our two distinctly British institutions so intimately linked.
