On this episode of From Tailors With Love I chat to the Budd London boys Darren Tiernan, Senior Cutter and James Macauslan, Cutter & Brand Creative Consultant at Budd London.

I schlepped the entire studio down to their gaff in Piccadilly Arcade which I’d never done before. Amazing I’ve been podcasting for years and you know I’ve always done it over the phone or Skype.

shirtmaker Budd London

This time Mohammed came to the mountain. Or the other way round, however that saying goes. So the connection here is that Budd London provided the shirt for Daniel Craig to wear to the Golden Globes, I did a Vlog on that one which you can find on the YouTube.

Some James Bond news I also mention in the show

More delays

Orlebar Brown are postponing their heritage collection. Which makes zero sense because everyone knows whats in the collection now.  They’ve also shut their stores here in the UK I’ve just got that email.

James Bond true lies wet suit comparison


I watched True Lies last night. With Anastasia. And its a phenomenal movie. And I got on the blower to Spaiser I said you have to do a blog on this, the Bond parallels in this one. So you have Schwarzenegger coming out of the lake in the beginning, takes of the wet suit at the beginning and he’s suited and booted underneath, just like Connery does in Goldfinger.

Other Bond Connections

Peter Lamont did the production, Art Malik is in this from The Living Daylights, you have the army ribbed sweaters, much like the N.Peal ones you see them when Schwarzenegger goes to intercept Bill Paxton from shagging his missus.

This might be my favourite Bill Paxton movie.
