I’m in my mid-fiftites, which gives me something in common with men my age that others can’t appreciate. We love James Bond. As all red-blooded American men we love a good cowboy movie, but espionage is our game and James Bond is our daydream.
The man who outfitted 007 was none other than Mr. Anthony Sinclair, a Savile Row tailor. I always wanted a tailor. I’m not much of a shopper and the notion that I might have my suits and shirts made by a single source was always appealing. There was a time, of course, when this attitude was common. Sherlock Holmes had a bespoke tobacconist. 007 had a remarkable tailor with a eye for enduring style and fine taste.
What’s more, Anthony Sinclair hosts a site that reflects the nature of Anthony Sinclair clothing–understated craftsmanship with a dash of British cool.
“He was a secret agent, and still alive thanks to his exact attention to the detail of his profession.” Ian Fleming, Casino Royale
