Bond's 'Arms Bazaar' Outfit

        In the pre-title sequence of Tomorrow Never Dies, James Bond is tasked with setting up surveillance on a terrorist market place in the snowy Khyber pass. 007's reconnaissance mission is abruptly cut short upon hearing that a missile is heading straight towards the bazaar where two nuclear torpedoes are fixed to an L-39 jet; Bond has a matter of minutes to hijack the jet and fly it to safety before the missile strikes.

Bond's 'final battle' commando outfit

      During the end of Tomorrow Never Dies, 007 wore a black commando outfit for the climatic fight on board Carver's stealth ship. While similar to the black commando outfit Bond wore in the beginning of the previous film, Goldeneye. Both outfits are vastly different when looked at in detail.

Lindy Hemming on Bond's wardrobe in Tomorrow Never Dies

        In this latest spy adventure, based on characters created by the late author Ian Fleming, award-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming once again worked closely with Brioni master tailor Checchino Fonticoli. Seeking to provide an even more modern edge to the character's tailored look the pair subtly altered the line to a more roped shoulder, with less suppression at the waist. In addition, the button stance on the handsome actor's suit and sport jackets have been lowered a full inch-a substantial change that allow for an even easier fit that lends a slightly more contemporary yet still classic look to the James Bond style.
