Daniel Craig's slim suits
Daniel Craig's wardrobe in "Skyfall" is impeccably tailored and quite tight. Unlike the James Bonds who came before him and liked the traditional looser, longer cut of a Savile Row-style suit, Craig, whose wardrobe is created mostly by Tom Ford, takes his suits Euro style, with tapered legs and shorter rises.
