Here’s another proof that City guys love James Bond style.
Fenchurch Street’s Bar20 know that one thing City boys really love about James Bond films are Mr Bond’s precisely tailored suits.
Business mogul Birley, owner of Mayfair members club Number 5 Hertford Street and half-brother to Tory mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith, invited Timothy Everest, the tailor behind 007’s attire in Skyfall and Spectre to speak to financiers about Bond style.
Guests enjoyed complimentary Hennessy cocktails as Everest mused on his suit designs throughout his showbiz career.
Timothy Everest, MBE, is a Welsh bespoke tailor and designer who has, according to Vogue, “dressed some of the world’s most famous people”. Recently the designer sold the Midnight Blue Nehru Collar Jacket made Bespoke for Christoph Waltz’s character ‘Franz Oberhauser’, paired with Wooyoungmi shirt and Margiela trousers on Christie’s auction. Money raised on these lots will be donated to wonderful Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) who provide medical aid to people worldwide who are affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters or exclusion from healthcare.

Stunningly decorated, this Bordeaux coloured 23,000 sq ft 18th century townhouse with two restaurants, Loulou’s nightclub decorated in flamboyant fashion by Rifat Ozbek, three bars and a cinema, the club does it’s utmost to entertain it’s members.
