Unfortunately, Daniel and Pierce are still married, but what we can do is show you how to transform the man you’ve already got into your very own James with our top 10 best Bond buys. From dapper clothing items to must have beauty products, we have rounded up our favourite piece’s to help you to create your very own movie icon. You’re welcome!
Have you ever seen 007 with a five o’clock shadow and straggly chin fluff? Us neither. Ensure your man keeps up his shaving standards with Murdock’s beautiful Laurence Razor. It’s handmade by British craftsmen, fits a Mach 3 blade and will make facial depilation so pleasurable he will practically skip to the bathroom to use it.
Nothing says Bond more than a terribly dapper tuxedo jacket. Stay thoroughly British with this Burberry wonder from Mr Porter, £895. The satin tapers adds that extra bit of luxury to a classic design, while the slim fit won’t drown your upper half and for the lucky ones show off their athletic physic.
When you’re travelling the globe catching bad guys, there’s no time to stand around at baggage reclaim – and with Aesop’s slick London Travel Kit, your man can breeze through arrivals Bond-style too. Inside the slick black case you’ll find dinky hair, skin and body products, all made with natural botanicals and smelling just delicious.
If time is of the essence make sure your man tells it in style. Nothing says sophistication like a super sleek wristwatch. Invest in a timeless one that will never go out of style, like this one from Raymond Weil, £650. With its stainless steel casing on top of grey face, the beautiful craftsmanship speaks for itself.
Nobody feels suave after a bad night’s sleep, and Otis Batterbee’s luxurious Prince Of Wales Eye Mask can ensure the man in your life catches his zzzs in style. Lined with soft velvet and filled with British Lavender, it looks the part and blocks out every single scrap of light so the only thing that will rouse him is an urgent call from M.
Elevate your mans evening attire with this silk bow from Lanvin at Selfridges, £85. There is no shame is having a pre-tied bow, even the best Bonds need a little help from time to time.
If there’s one thing James Bond loves, it’s a gadget (well, and martinis, cars, women… the list goes on) If you live with a tech afficionado, he’ll be happy to get on board with Clinique’s Cleasing Brush, it takes a mere minute to use and really dislodges all those impurities that men’s larger pores seem to love. Give it a few weeks and he’ll be as smooth of skin as Mr Craig himself.
This classic lace up derby shoes from Russell & Bromley, £225, is the go to for any gent wanting to compliment their formal attire. Simple in its nature, its oozes understated elegance but still has that little bit of oomph expected of something that 007 would wear.
Between plastic tubs of cream and neon bottles of spray gel, men’s hair products can rarely be described as suave – but we reckon Bayolea Hair Pomade wouldn’t look out of place on Bond’s bathroom shelf. Chic packaging aside, the mouldable wax inside is strong without being sticky and scented gently with citrus and spice, everything you’d expect from heritage British brand, Penhaligon’s.
Now where would your very own James bond be without a crisp white dress shirt.
Whether it’s with a formal tux or just a pair of smart trousers, amp up his formal shirt with this one from Moss Bros. The black buttons down the centre of the shirts adds that more expensive feel to this incredibly affordable dress shirt at just £45.
