Daniel Craig filming 23rd Bond movie Skyfall
The more we see from the set of Skyfall, the more we're convinced that James Bond is about to rediscover his sense of style.
Casino Royale was good, Quantum Of Solace less so. But they shared the sense of a bullish Bond. He had all the masculinity of Connery, but lacked the suave sophistication of Moore.
What little we've seen of Daniel Craig in Skyfall has suggested a dedicated effort to make James Bond a style icon again. Anyone can hit the gym and walk out of the sea in some swimshorts. Being a style icon is far more difficult. Check out Daniel Craig as James Bond in this gallery of the latest pics from the set.

This is not a comment on Daniel Craig, but one directed at the current 'fashion' in men's suits. I hope the readers will forgive me taking this opportunity to air my opinions....
Just wearing a suit doesn't make a man stylish - especially when the current 'fashion' in men's suits seems to be that of tight-fitting, with trousers that are too tight and jackets that are a little too short. It's what I like to call the "growing out of your school uniform-look".
For a man to look stylish, his clothes must fit properly.
No man can look 'cool' when his clothes restrict his movements.
This bit is very much a personal feeling, so I'll probably get loads of thumbs-downs but, I just hate the current fashion in men's suits. Double vented jackets were created for people who rode horses and look horrible as business attire - especially when the 'flap' blows in the wind and reveals the seat of a man's pants (like a baboon baring its bottom - this is not a good look). Flat front trousers that are tight to move and sit in and are so narrow that they don't 'break' properly and ruckle up over the top of the shoe - are another bad look. Not 'cool' at all.
Jackets should be unvented - they make a man's shoulders appear broader and his backside and hips appear narrower. Trousers should have one or two pleats (depending on the man's figure) to allow the wearer to sit in comfort (comfort = cool), and should have a single 'break' over the top of the shoe.
Until these basic elements of sartorial de rigueur come back in to 'fashion' - or at least are offered as a mainstream off-the-peg choice - I'll have to continue having my suits made for me. It's expensive, but the only way to get a good looking suit that fits properly.
From what I can see it's brave to show him with grey hair. At the time there was nothing to compare Connery with but, now, it shows he was rather unsuitable for the role. Roger Moore was too smooth and unconvincing. George Lazenby was a more convincing Bond but he couldn't really act. Pierce Brosnan had the edge but his rather effeminate character portrayal overshadowed the menace.
On the whole I think that Daniel Craig offers a more convincing Bond, cold, efficient, nasty and, obviously, committed to the role. For my money Daniel Craig is the best James Bond even though I don't particularly like him as an actor.
Looking forward like most to the new Bond film,
Not so sure about the product placement that seem to be creeping in, I hear Bond will be a Larger drinker in this one, but where will is stop. Will he be popping into Iceland for a two for one offer on Artic rolls? or checking his odds on Bet Fred.
stick to being cool please
In my opinion, daniel craig hasnt been given a chance to show style in bond. in casino royale it was mmostly the traditional bond tux and the rest was mostly action sequences where the costume designers arent too fussy. and as for quantum of solace, i dont think there was much of a costume designer. this will be different hopefully. In the novals, bond takes care of his aperiance, but generally doesnt mind a lot. he is a cold, ruthless killer, not gok wan. in other movies he is smart, sophisticated, and always has a bow tie handy for the casino. i cant wait for bond 23
