As you watched movie after movie of the 007 series, movie companies made huge money due to the fire that James Bond had started in his movies.
Marketing companies also watched as their monies flew in…
Marketing in the current world is intertwined to almost everything. Marketing agencies were also watching the 006 craze and wondering where to put their Ads.
Big reapers were clothing brands. And this was so because James Bond became a household name.
One that men and boys alike associated with authority, stature and heroism.
All tthe brands that made an appearance in the movies made a fortune. Let’s look at the brands that made an amazing fortune from the movie.
James Bond’s Tuxedo Brands
007 always turned to the masterful hands providing his suits. For Sean Connery and Roger Moore, this was their normal tailor (Anthony Sinclair for Sir Sean, and Cyril Castle, Angelo Vitucci, and Douglas Hayward for Sir Roger), while Brioni and Tom Ford provided dinner suits for Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, respectively. (The Brioni association continued through Casino Royale, so Daniel Craig wore their business suits and tuxedos before making the switch to Tom Ford beginning with Quantum of Solace.)
Daniel Craig in Skyfall
Less than 20 years after this Swedish ready-to-wear brand was co-founded it had a hand in dressing James Bond, contributing a pair of shark gray “Wall Street” trousers to Daniel Craig’s pea coat-driven outfit in Skyfall.

Another fan favorite from Skyfall remains the double-breasted wool pea coat from Billy Reid with its unorthodox peak lapels, leather detailing, and flattering fit. The coincidentally named “Bond” pea coat’s association with 007 has been credited with single-handedly skyrocketing the independent brand’s business, and are regular picks in our Nordstrom Rack finds.
Pierce Brosnan in Golden Eye
After a legacy of Sean Connery and Roger Moore showcasing the bespoke services of English tailors like Anthony Sinclair, Cyril Castle, and Douglas Hayward, 007’s costume team went in a new direction for the ‘90s by dressing Pierce Brosnan’s version of the character in luxury duds from the Italian fashion house Brioni.
