Please post recommendations in the comments and I can add them to the list. I'd like to limit this to t-shirts that go above and beyond the average t-shirt. No costco or walmart 6 packs for example. Quality fabrics and construction in addition to fit are the main priority. Consider it a curated t-shirt recommendation list.
This USA T-Shirt is made from organic cotton jersey knitted right in California. We garment wash and dye each shirt, which softens the fabric up wonderfully. Finally, picking the right shade is a must.

I've been doing the Starting Strength program for 6 months now after being a bit of a couch potato since my freshman year of college (I'm a senior now). I've dropped my weight from 165 to 152 lbs (I'm 5'7"). I'm in better shape than I was in high school and my friends note that I look a lot more muscular. One of my favorite things to do to inspire myself to work hard in the gym is to look at pictures of what I want to look like. Here are a few of my inspiration pictures: Daniel Craig in Casino Royale Kayne Lawton Chris Hemsworth in Thor So now it's your turn. What do you want to look like? Post a picture if you have one.
MFA Spring/Summer Starter Pack 2015: UK Edition Part II
PT I. It was a pleasant surprise to receive such a positive response to the first part of this write-up. This follow up is meant to provide some options for those who are looking for more top of the range choices. I've tried to emphasise British, and to a lesser extent European, brands but there are a few items from around the world. I did face a few difficulties with this section because of the wide range of styles and prices once you start considering a higher price range, as well as being hindered by my relative inexperience with these items. Nevertheless, I did a fair bit of reading so hopefully this is a good starter for anyone who is looking for some British summer (as oxymoronic as it may be) inspiration!
Shirts & Tops
Acne Standard O Tee (£75) - Good construction and my favourite collar cut as it's at the perfect spot between a scoop and a regular crew. Sunspel Crew Neck (£55) - Sunspel make some great t-shirts and could easily replace the previous Acne recommendation. Their henleys and polos (the Riviera was designed for Daniel Craig in Casino Royale) are also worth checking out. Oliver Spencer Breton Tee Navy (£65) - There's nothing like a Breton-stripe to announce that summer's arrived! Really like the collar stripes here. Slim Fit Lacoste Polo (£100) - The classic Polo brand in a modern fit. There's also a regular and ultra slim fit but I feel this one will cater to the widest audience. Engineered Garments Layfette Shirt (£179) - Daiki has beautiful prints and the penny collar is a nice contrast to regular shirts. Our Legacy Six Shirt (£165) - All silk and a very subtle print. From Joff_Mengum: The OL Six Shirt is lovely but the material is actually surprisingly insulating so bear that in mind on hot days. I have another of their shirts in the same fabric with no print and it can easily fill the role of a light jacket on cooler days when worn over a tee or another shirt if you roll that way. S.E.H Kelly Stripe Linen Shirt (£140) - I'd describe this as being a very neutral cut as it's neither slim nor loose, just somewhere inbetween. The horn buttons and the collar roll, though it may not be everyone's thing, are really eye-catching. Percival Short Sleeve Blue Dot Shirt (£115) - A really cool small dot print, and comes with turned up sleeves which are pretty popular during summer here. Oliver Spencer Eton Collar Shirt Greystoke Cream (£99) - A cotton-linen blend with an eton collar and a slubby marled texture. A really interesting way to bring in texture into summer outfits which I feel, aside from denim, tend to lack any heavy textures.
Common Projects Original Achilles Low (£259) - There is not much I can add when it comes to discussing CPs. There are countless alternatives but these are the classics. Maison Margiela 22 Classic Replica Sneaker (£269) - Really nice interpretation of the historical GAT. Y-3 Qasa Low (£249) - There have been so many interesting releases from Nike and Adidas ranging from the million different flyknits to the tubulars that it's impossible to cover them all so I decided to just throw in a Qasa from the current season but there is a huge field of options if you want to get sneakers. Asics GT-II 'Easter' (£79) - If you're after a more traditional style of sneaker Asics and New Balance should have you covered. Mark McNairy Contrast Sole Suede Derbys (£230) - A derby is arguably the most summer-appropriate casual leather shoe and these McNairys come in a beautiful colourway. Visvim Americana Boat Shoes (£440) - I'm personally quite a big fan of Hiroki's work but the heel and the branding may not be to everyone's tastes. I am not going to even attempt to add these together into a total price (as a student of maths my addition is, as you may expect, incredibly poor). Browsing through END, Oi Polloi, and Mr. Porter will show you that there's an absolutely massive range of brands and fashion houses at this price level so I would definitely encourage anyone interested in any of the pieces here to look up the brands and see the alternatives. I'd love feedback for any of the items I've mentioned here or any other suggestions!
What line of dialogue from the films do you quote most often in everyday life?
I wonder which one-liners, quips, and snappy witticisms the rest of /JamesBond uses in regular conversation. I used to have an ex-boyfriend who liked to say "You taste nice." a la Daniel Craig in Casino Royale after greeting me with a kiss. However, my personal favourite pastime is imitating Alan Cumming in GoldenEye whenever I beat anyone else in any sort of game: "Better luck next time. SLUGHEADS."
In Casino Royale (2006), the shot of James Bond emerging from the sea was taken by accident. According to Daniel Craig, the shot occurred because he swam into an awkwardly sited sand bank and was forced to walk to shore.
I hear Tom Hardy's name being thrown around, but I feel like he's too short and a tad too "pretty" for James Bond. His voice also seems too... high. But he is a fine actor. I just feel like he's a little too "alternative" looking for Bond. But he seems like a popular choice at the moment.
Henry Cavill seems like an obvious consideration, since he's tall, dark, handsome, and British. Also, he was previously considered for it, but he was deemed too young. Coincidentally, that was the same reason he got passed over for Superman Returns. Maybe he'll receive the same fortune with Bond? Again, Bond is supposed to be 35-37 years old, and by the time Craig signs off, Cavill will be of age. What's also ideal is that if Cavill begins at 34-35, they could get 6+ films from him, doing one every 2.5 years.
Clive Owen used to be thrown around, and I think he would have been great, but he might be on the older side.
Christian Bale -- I've read that Chris Nolan has considered doing a Bond film. I think the internet would EXPLODE if they reported that Chris Nolan and Christian Bale were teaming up for a Bond film. Regardless, I think a Chris Nolan Bond film would be AMAZING. And I feel like many people forget that Bale is British (Welsh).
Idris Elba -- I'd love this. He's got the swagger, the presence, the nationality and accent. Obviously, there's the skin color hurdle that he'd face by traditionalists and certainly racists. I wouldn't automatically call protestors racists unless they were being outright racists; simply saying that James Bond isn't black doesn't make anyone racist, in my opinion. Anyway, Elba would be great, but I don't think it'd ever happen.
Liam Hemsworth - Yeah, not British, but he's got the looks. No verdict on his acting.
TL;DR -- Daniel Craig has been awesome, but he's aging real fast. Regardless, there will obviously be an eventual replacement. Who do you think should be the next Bond? 1 Yes, Roger Moore and Sean Connery played James Bond beyond the prime years (Moore was 58). But things are different now. There's far more action in these Bond films. Also, the movies are filmed in HD digital, making the age far more noticeable, more so than films from the 1960s.
Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig in his 007 debut, opened 14 years ago. The $150M reboot of the James Bond franchise opened to $40.8M, grossing a then franchise record $167.4M DOM/$606.1M WW, and is widely considered one of the franchise's greatest films.
Who are the most alpha male protagonists in movies?
Daniel Craig in Casino Royale and Schwarzenegger in Conana are the first ones that comes to mind for me. Also Toshiro Mifune in every akira kurosawa movie and in the Musashi Samurai Trilogy. What about you?
[US] Casino Royale (2006) - Daniel Craig stars in this reboot to the 007 franchise, based on Ian Fleming's first Bond novel. Bond takes on his first mission, in which he faces a mysterious private banker to world terrorism (Mads Mikkelsen) in a high stakes poker game at the Casino Royale.
(FYI I'll have posted this to /keto and /loseit also) Hey guys. You may not remember me, but I'm a guy (6'3 started at 428) that lost down to 359 in a short period of time doing keto. Since then I've been hit with a cancer diagnosis, surgery(multiple), and chemotherapy. I'm still undergoing chemo but my oncologist actually heavily endorsed a low-carb diet. Hopefully it's one that I can maintain given the taste changes and sickness that comes with chemotherapy. My way of coping with the side effects has been to sleep a lot and eat just whatever I can keep down. These things haven't actually been good for me at all, and I was back up to 413lbs. So yesterday I had nothing but coffee with cream for most of the day, then kicked it low carb for the remainder of the day. The idea is for me to be fully into ketosis within the next day or two. My next round of chemo is Monday and lasts all week. What bit of weight I lost was an absolutely amazing experience and was an adventure every day as my body transformed and certain tasks became easier and easier. I would randomly run or sprint just to see how different it was than the week or weeks before. It was great.... So in any case, everyone take care of yourselves. Wish me luck! Anyone with similar experience, by all means share! tl;dr - keto to lose weight, chemo and cancer in the way. want body to eventually look like Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. not looking to be lean necessarily. any tips for gain and weight loss welcome. any similar experience welcome. yeah, will expect loose skin issues.
In Casino Royale (1967) Daniel Craig and Mads Mikkelsen got significantly less screen time than David Niven, Peter Sellers, Woody Allen or Orson Welles. This is because I ordered the wrong movie on Vudu.
Nach fünfzehn Jahren als James Bond wird sich Daniel Craig bald von der Rolle verabschieden. Am 2. April startet sein fünfter und letzter Einsatz als 007 in "Keine Zeit zu sterben". Wer dafür gewappnet sein will, sollte vorher nochmal auf seine Vorgänger zurückblicken, insbesondere auf seinen Bond-Anfang: "Casino Royale". A behind-the-scenes photo of Daniel Craig taken in February 2006 while the actor was filming Casino Royale in Prague. Craig’s two front teeth were reportedly knocked out during a fight scene. In "Casino Royale" übernahm zum ersten Mal Daniel Craig die Rolle des 007 – und bekam gleich zwei Bond-Girls an seine Seite gestellt. Mittlerweile sind beide um 14 Jahre gealtert, aber nicht zu Here’s an interview with Daniel Craig talking about his diet for Casino Royale: James Bond Interview. Long story short: you can look like this at age 40 if you have a lot of money, a personal trainer, a diet coach, great genetics, and five days a week to train. If you don’t have those things, you can still get the Bond look; it just might Daniel Craig workout: the actual routine he did to become James Bond in Casino Royale, as revealed by his personal trainer, Simon Waterson British GQ Fashion Culture Grooming Watches GQ Hype Schon in seiner ersten Prügelszene für „Casino Royale“ (2006) lernte Craig das harte Bond-Business kennen.
