Turnbull and Asser to release limited edition Casino Royale shirt and bow tie collection

James Bond, Casino Royale, Limited Collection Evening Shirt and Bow Tie

Turnbull & Asser, the world renowned Jermyn Street shirt maker, is proud to be launching its first "Limited Collection" Shirt and Bow Tie combination to be featured in the new blockbuster film "Casino Royale," produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

It was back in 1962 that this, most charismatic of film icons, was born. His name was Bond, James Bond. From the outset, every actor to play the roll of James Bond has invariably worn shirts and ties made by Turnbull & Asser. It is, therefore, only natural, that Daniel Craig in his forthcoming debut, as the new James Bond in "Casino Royale," will be wearing shirts and ties by Turnbull & Asser.

The "Limited Collection" shirt is made from a super fine, two fold, white-on-white cotton. Using a classic silhouette, the shirt has been designed with a unique collar, specifically designed by Turnbull & Asser, which is featured in the film. Further subtle details can be found including the mitred double cuffs and concealed front placket which, stylishly, hide the mother of pearl buttons underneath. The bow tie is made from raw Shantung silk, giving extra texture and a wonderful handle and tactility when touching the bow tie. The shirt and bow tie will add an air of sophistication to any gentleman’s wardrobe: it is a "must have" item; a piece of cinema history. Just like James Bond.

Thanks to `Rowland` for the alert.
