Introducing Everyday Alternatives
One of the recurring themes I will be featuring on this site is called Everyday Alternative. The idea is to highlight affordable alternatives to the, usually quite expensive, clothing and accessories that are preferred by James Bond. I’ll highlight items that are much more accessible to the everyday Bond fans that can give the same look and feel as their on-screen (or in print) counterparts but without the inflated sticker price.
Golfing with Goldfinger
In the movie Goldfinger, Sean Connery wears one of his most iconic casual James Bond outfits: A wine-colored Slazenger, v-neck jumper worn over a heather gray polo with wool, charcoal gray slacks.
The beauty of an outfit like this is that the average everyday Bond fan can easily recreate this outfit without spending over $200 on the sweater alone. Check out the affordable alternatives listed below.
