The James Bond Archives

James Bond has been the coolest cat in cinema history for fifty years now. That’s right, five-zero. From Connery to Dalton to Craig, from Aston to BMW back to Aston and with enough women to make even Terry Richardson jealous (we hear that’s hard to do), Bond, James Bond is pretty much a historic icon. For the 50th Anniversary, EON Productions opened the archives to editor Paul Duncan so he could go nuts with fifty years of photos, designs, storyboards, production materials and other documentation. The James Bond Archives is the culmination of over two years of work on Duncan’s part and includes a lot of never-before-seen and previously unpublished photography, artwork, behind-the-scenes and on set material. Which is probably why it costs $126 for the book. To be fair though, the first print run of the book also includes an original strip of film from Dr. No.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
