How to be like James Bond

With the recent launch of Spectre we thought you’d like us to show you the key components of Bond’s style file. You want to feel like you have a Licence to Kill. You need Bond’s ability to stride through the dry sands of the Sahara desert with the confidence of a man unphased by the treacherous conditions or a myriad of malevolent villains.

You will probably never carry a gun, smash through a window or have a fleet of Aston Martins in your garage, but you can emulate one element of Bond’s charisma: his style.
