Tom Ford: The James Bond Stylist

Tom Ford: The James Bond Stylist

Elegant Eyewear for Espionage

It's no secret that James Bond is an impeccably well dressed gentleman. From shootouts and car chases to having martini with women, he has a aura of elegance and class. Tom Ford is the personal tailor for Daniel Craig's 007; from suits to sunglasses his wardrobe shows a love for luxury and style. Take a look at the featured sunglass pieces from the latest Bond movies.

Quantum of Solace (2008)

Quantum of Solace

Daniel Craig wears a pair of TF108 sunglasses, now discontinued and incredibly difficult to find. The screen-worn pair sold at a charity auction for nearly $40,000. One can only imagine how much the actual Aston Martin driven in the film was scooped up for. 

Skyfall (2012)

Tom Ford 144 Marko Skyfall

A similar colour and shape to the pair seen in Quantum of Solace, 007 dons a pair of TF144 ("Marko") which is currently still in production. The rhodium (silver) frame with the smoke blue lenses are a perfect fit for the elegant gentleman. A slightly narrow fit, it doesn't overpower the features the way some other aviators do. 

Spectre (2015)

Tom Ford 237 Snowdon Sunglasses

In Spectre, James Bond sports the TF237 ("Snowdon") at a funeral. The vintage-inspired shape lends itself well to a timeless classic look, and while the frame looks black, it's actually a dark havana with a dark brown lens, perfect for complimenting an impeccably tailored look. These frames are also available to order! 

Tom Ford 248 Henry Sunglasses

Daniel Craig appears in a second pair of Tom Ford sunglasses for this movie. Here with a lighter coloured suit and a more casual ensemble, he wears the TF248 ("Henry") sunglasses, another vintage-inspired cult accessory of the past. Again, this model is an available order from Tom Ford, this specific colourway being a dark havana with dark metal accents.
