James Bond fans were delighted when it was recently confirmed that Daniel Craig would ditch the beer and return to sipping vodka martinis in 007’s next outing, Spectre.
However, traditionalists still have one cause to grumble. I am told producers will continue their deal with American tailor Tom Ford.
Not only is this considered unpatriotic, Ford’s outfits in Skyfall were also panned for being too small. One critic said his buttock-clenchingly snug designs made Craig look ‘like a bodyguard’.
David Mason of London tailor Anthony Sinclair, who cut Sean Connery’s iconic suits, says: ‘Of course, it’s saddening to witness Bond’s flirtations with glamorous Americans. I must confess I was expecting a call.’
