Most men will deny being influenced by James Bond, but many would like to be an heroic spy and some of us buy cars, gadgets and clothes accordingly (see, for example, my article here about the true James Bond wristwatch). The revival of the original beautifully minimalist Conduit Cut suit, worn by the best ever Bond, Sean Connery, is further evidence of the urge to be 007 (see the first video below and Anthony Sinclair's website for more). The classic nature of Bond's wardrobe provides the more mature male with inspiration.
We sometimes forget that Bond is a fictional character, but much of his style and outlook came from his creator, Ian Fleming, who, like his creation, loved gadgets, dressed well and lived the exotic lifestyle.
Isn't that Aston Martin DB5 achingly beautiful? I still have my childhood Corgi model of this car, with working ejector seat (with a bad guy who is flung out in a very satisfying way), pop-up rear bulletproof shield, hydraulic rams and machine guns concealed behind the sidelights.
