The Rail: style inspired by 007
Ian Fleming’s fictional spy character James Bond has been immortalised through the books and on screen, as a symbol of style and sex appeal. Craig Daniel, current incumbent of the Bond character has moved away from classic romantic leads and brought us a slightly more edgy and robust individual ready to get dirty and rough it up. Inspired by this, we select an edit of garments fit for the British Secret Service agent, to enable you to be ready at any given time – whether it be ordering your preferred take on a Martini, or galavanting around the world in fast cars.
Omega Seamaster 300
Becoming synonymous with James Bond, Omega have reeled out numerous timepieces aiding the secret service agent in his endeavours to thwart various villains. Given the Seamaster’s own heritage as a dive watch this new edition comes with the ever popular nato-strap. The watch is powered by the Omega’s Master Co-Axial calibre 8400 movement that is resistant to magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss while the bezel is a bi-directional rotating ceramic bezel.

John Smedely Cashmere Rollneck
The roll neck is a style staple versatile for smart occasions but robust enough to have while out in the sticks or up a mountain. This offering from John Smedley is a cashmere/silk blend allowing it to be lightweight while at the same time being perfect for pairing with jackets and blazers as a modern alternative to classic tailoring.

Renowned for attention to detail and superior quality fabric choices, Visvim have made a name for themselves by creating garments of the highest standard. The sort of thing that 007 would demand. These chinos are made in Japan using premium cotton and has a rear cinch with brass buckle detail, remaining simple and purposeful at all times.

Crockett & Jones Radnor black calf leather boots
We were torn between Crockett & Jones’ two boots, the Northcote and Radnor, and opted for the latter purely on the commando sole. The Northcote is a beautiful boot and perfectly balanced to style for smart and casual occasions. We like the utility aspect of the Radnor that will give you the confidence to climb and mountain in your double breasted suit if you son wish. A strong silhouette to instil fear and intimidation in the enemy.
