Daniel Craig: Man of Style

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

You may know him as the James Bond or the sultry husband of Rachel Weisz–and we know him as a fashion guru. Impressively masculine, charming, and stoic Daniel Craig embodies the image of style and male fashion. He doesn’t get caught up in silly trends, but sticks with the basics and always looks good while doing so.

THE QUINTESSENTIAL CUFFLINKSMAN

Becoming a man of style here at Cufflinksman is no easy feat. Few men in modern media meet our standards, but Daniel Craig definitely has them. “Craig’s reserved demeanor and his avoidance of the showbiz-party-red-carpet milieu makes him a cool “007”. He is the first blonde actor to play Bond, and also the first to be born after the start of the film series, and also the first to be born after the death of author Ian Fleming in 1964.”(SOURCE: IMBD.COM)

Even ASKMEN.COM takes notice of his stylish demeanor: “Look at Bond’s black-tie digs during the Craig era proves that point perfectly. Casino Royale featured what at first glance appears to be a traditional tux but in reality packs the punch for which Bond is known. The button is solo, the lapels are peak and the fit, of course, is glove-like. The shirt and tie likewise have a subtle surprise in store: The placket is hidden and topped off with a bow that could almost be considered Pee-wee-esque if it weren’t worn with a Walther P99. Bond wore it undone, so the practicality inherent to its slimness cannot be stressed enough. After all, who wants to have a bulky bow flailing in the wind? The same can be said about protecting that pricey stud set with the covered placket. As for the shoes, well, if you paid close attention, you’d know they weren’t patent. That would almost be too predictable. Rather, they’re simply high-shine oxfords that are far more versatile — that is, if John Lobb lace-ups for two Gs can be considered simple.
