Election or Skyfall. Election or Skyfall. Such are the tough choices we bloggers face, and in the end the opening of Skyfall in the United States won out. The event is considerably less important but the clothes are better.
Tom Ford of course is responsible for Daniel Craig's clothes in the film, and to his credit Bond is dressed in the restrained palette of the original films. Less creditably, the tailored clothing is too small, too tight and unlikely to be remembered favorably fifty years from now unless menswear has devolved to tee shirts and leather jackets for formal wear. And despite this they (the clothes that is) are considerably more interesting than the dumbed down garb worn by our current Presidential candidates.
But we at ASW do aim to please, and any readers disappointed that we did not choose a well dressed candidate for today's post may be consoled by Googling some photos of the late Ronald Reagan and/or listening to the rather famous recording of former President Lyndon Baines Johnson ordering some trousers while he was in office. The American Presidency has some tremendous perquisites but some negatives as well, and one of them is that every telephone call is kept for posterity.
