It’s not an exact copy of what Daniel Craig wears in Skyfall but rather a combination of that and the British dinner suit Sean Connery wore in the early 007 movies.

Ever since Sean Connery uttered the words ‘Bond...James Bond’ half a century ago in the first of the 007 movies Dr No, almost every young man in the civilized world has wanted to emulate the suave and sophisticated look of the British secret service agent character.

Now they can, with the announcement that web-based handcrafted men’s suits company, Knot Standard, are producing a midnight blue tuxedo which has become the modern James Bond ‘uniform’ for lady pulling and villain tackling globally.

This stunning look of the tuxedo, with black satin shawl lapels, follows the worldwide release of the latest 007 epic, Skyfall, earlier in the month, which also marks 50 years of James Bond on the big screen and the 23rd Bond movie to date.

The James Bond Tuxedo has been created by Knot Standard in collaboration with New York designer Matt Spaiser, owner and author of website

Designed as a tribute piece to the legendary MI6 agent created by Ian Fleming, this dinner suit is a legacy of all that Bond has represented in modern movie history. The pant pleats of the James Bond Tuxedo suit from Knot Standard are inward facing, not outward facing like regular pleats.

Knot Standard has been making and designing men’s hand-crafted tuxedos and formal suits for men for two years, many are worn by celebrity clients. Knot Standard is excited to introduce the new suit to their existing range and are confident the Midnight Blue suit will be a favorite with customers.

This special edition will add to the extensive range of garments tailored uniquely to fit every client.
The Bond films are the second-highest grossing film franchise to date, which started in 1962 with Dr No and Sean Connery as Bond. Skyfall stars Daniel Craig in his third portrayal of Bond and Daniel, himself the recipient of several Best Dressed Man awards, is the sixth actor to play Bond in the series.

There have also been two independent productions of Bond films, Casino Royale, a 1967 spoof, and Never Say Never Again, a 1983 remake of the earlier Thunderball. The Bond films are renowned for a number of features, including the musical accompaniment, with the theme songs to the films having picked up Academy Award nominations on several occasions. Other important elements which run through most of the films include Bond's cars, his female companions, and of course his villain defeating British Secret Service gadgets.

The tailors at Knot Standard believe that each suit is a piece of art and this is why they compile the best of craftsmanship, high class materials and an accurate fit so that the end result is unlike any other that is in the style-conscious man’s of wardrobe, whatever his age.

The Midnight Blue suit is a sophisticated version of the classic suits of the past, with extremely fine weaving, delicate touch and a matte finish. The ensemble has the customary Knot Standard swoop lining, along with an added dark piping near the pockets.

There are ample options when it comes to customization with the Midnight Blue, and it is those that lend a certain something to the distinguished look to the customer wearing this Knot Standard special outfit.

Knot Standard allows the client to specify whether he wants jacket flaps, cuffs on the pants, single or double pleats or a flat front, embroidery designed, or even pockets to house a personal cell phone. The pockets are placed within the trousers so that the phone may be accommodated and held firmly in place. These cleverly discreet pockets conceal the bulk caused by carrying mobiles and wallets in a standard pocket - even James Bond would be impressed with these features.
