James Bond Houndstooth
I found this fun series of articles on Ian Fleming and James Bond's fashion styling. Bill Tanner combs through the 007 books in search of JB's sensibilities towards tailors and single-breasted suits and we see the spy often following in his author's footsteps. Was the literary Bond an "off-row" gentleman too? Unfortunately they both wore houndstooth on casual occasions which dispels most of my respect for either of them (I'm more a Savalas as Blofeld kinda' guy) and I turned my attention to this Keri Hilson, Lil Wayne video that someone forwarded. Check out the nails and the corset and the baseball cap. Is there no end to my misery!!!
