The inaugural episode of FROM TAILORS WITH LOVE talks about the style of Ian Fleming and how much of his own style he imparted onto his fictional creation.

We also talk about the Ian Fleming capsule collection from Sunspel and the benefits of Sea Island Cotton. The episode is also available on Spotify. Click the link below.

WHY HAVE I STARTED A PODCAST ABOUT THE STYLE OF JAMES BOND?

Matt Spaiser and I have been busy on a new project that I’ll tell you about in due course. But our regular conversations always veer into the style of James Bond and we thought it would be a neat idea.

The logistics will be tough as Matt is on New York time, I’m in London. Synchronising the diaries has been tough and getting his bowels to cooperate with a morning interview is quite the feat of acrobatics.

Other names in the hat for this podcast were, Tailors on the Toilet, Fashion with a Flush. You get the idea. You can listen to the entire episode in the player below or on iTunes. Don’t forget to leave a review on iTunes.

WHY SHOULD I LISTEN?

Because it takes ages to set up these kind of projects. There’s the research, the recording, the editing, the promoting, oh and the server fees.

Seriously, we talk not only about the style of James Bond, but the benefits of the fabrics in the suits that he wore, the history of British fashion relevant to the films of the time.
