It's the season of 007 again. You bound to see plenty of tailored designer looks in the latest 007 flick, 'Quantum of Solace.' The movie, which stars Daniel Craig.
Dressing in line with a secret agent also means owning a high-impact watch, sleek weekend luggage and rugged footwear, preferably leather boots in brown or a dark shade, that allows for running after bad guys, jumping out of airplanes and gunning the engines of luxury sports cars in high-speed chases. You can't forget a wardrobe with dark-washed denim without embellishments, high-end cuff links and aviator-style sunglasses. And any true Bond man knows the perfect skivvies also are required.
So if you're looking to show your Bond side, there are several fashion (military-style jackets, boots and well-tailored trench coats and pants) and accessory (high-impact watches and designer luggage) options at Austin shops such as Bows + Arrows and Spartan on South Lamar Boulevard. Mercury Design Studio on Second Street has an assortment of cuff links, passport cases, retro-style cocktail glasses, and even collections of James Bond books, while men's store Keepers on Congress Avenue carries the rugged wares of Robert Comstock along with suits from Versace and Brioni.
Now it's your turn to free your inner Bond in style provided you willing to spend a little more time in the gym.
