The Cars to Take Down James Bond

In the upcoming film SPECTRE, JLR gave the villains a CX-75, a "Big Foot" Defender and a Range Rover Sport SVR. Bond has his work cut out for him.

007, Reporting for Duty

Skyfall Blu-ray

Bond, James Bond. Admit it; you read that with an accent. Was it Scottish? We ask because the upcoming Blu-ray release of Skyfall ($25) could cause you to reconsider your lilt. Under the direction of Sam Mendes, in what is certainly the most visually stunning of the franchise, Daniel Craig delivers a 007 that easily challenges Connery for the crown.

Tasting Notes: Bollinger 002 for 007 Champagne

The truth is, we’ve never sipped an ounce of champagne from this silencer-inspired bottle of Bollinger 002 for 007 Limited Edition Champagne (~$160), which opens only when the code “007” is entered into the gimmicky combination lock. But we have been fortunate enough to taste this particular vintage of Bollinger La Grande Année 2002 once...

Examining 007's inky origins

Reading Bond: Casino Royale

I’ve gaped at car chases, grinned from ear to ear over sly one-liners and left theaters flushed with the gory glory of Daniel Craig’s stone-faced massacres. No arguments here: theatrical James Bond is the perfect feel-good character for a whole sect of males. Cars, women, subterfuge and wit — that’s not a hard pill to...

Bond Style Pick: Crockett & Jones Shoes

Bond is as British as they come, and so are Crockett & Jones. The 5th-generation shoemaking family has been going strong since 1879 (that’s 30 years older than MI6). Their footwear works damn well together with 007 in Skyfall, where Bond sports the Alex, Highbury, Tetbury and Islay styles. Being worn in a Bond film...

Bond Cars: What He Should Have Driven

What are as stunning as the women Bond has not-so-lasting relations with? His cars. Some — like the quintessential DB5 — we worship; others — the horrid AMC Hornet X Sedan, for example — are as tempting as having your privates divided by a laser beam. We decided to take a closer look at the...

Stay: The Hotels of James Bond

Every guy has dreamed of living the Bond life at some point in time. What man wouldn’t want to drive missile-equipped Aston Martins, blow through government slush funds on the tables of Monaco and spar with Grace Jones in bed woo every striking woman in a 200 mile radius while drinking the finest champagne? Practicing...

Style Pick: Billy Reid Skyfall Peacoat

Subterfuge is hard when you’re shivering. Combine that problem with Bond’s utter necessity for style and you get the Billy Reid Skyfall Peacoat ($695). The coat alone is noteworthy for its prominent appearance in the movie, but the fact that Daniel Craig loved wearing it so much on set that he bought a few, on...

Bond 50 Blu-ray Collection

MGM has announced the mother of all boxed sets in celebration of 50 years of James Bond wooing women, breaking gadgets, and thwarting global disaster on the silver screen. Never before have all 22 films been available in high definition Blu-ray and compiled into one epic collectors item that’s truly a must have for any...

Further Proof There May Be Reason For Custom Rolexes

Project X Designs SS1 Rolex Submariner

Based on a Rolex Submariner LV, Project X Designs heavily modified it to be what amounts to an authentic homage to the esteemed Sub Ref 6538. For those of you not geeked out by Subs, the 6538 is the model Sub that Sean Connery wore as James Bond, and one of the most sought after...
