That's me and Nick, with Pierce Brosnan and his lovely first wife, Cassandra, back in the 80s.
You see, we were talking this morning about Pinewood and 007. The PM is visiting Pinewood today, to throw more political weight behind the British film industry.
It reminded me of the 007 I knew best.
Mind you, when this pic was taken, Pierce had been offered the role but had been unable to take it up because he was contractually bound to another series of Remington Steele, and Hollywood wouldn't release him.
6 Celebs Who Are Using Their Star Status to Protect the Planet
APRIL 17, 2015
Wile the Average Joe may be able to compost or recycle to try to help save the earth, celebrities have a few advantages when it comes to trying to make a difference. Here are how some stars are using their power for good and making a change:
Pierce Brosnan The former James Bond star, who was inducted into the Environmental Hall of Fame (environmentalhalloffame.net) for his work against illegal whale hunting and for wetlands protection, has served on the boards of the Natural Resources Defense Council (nrdc.org), California Coastal Protection Network (coastaladvocates.com) and Sea Shepherd (seashepherd.org).

Liam Neeson is most-liked celebrity endorser Maria Puente, USA TODAY 2:49 p.m. EDT May 26, 2015
Want to get a celebrity to endorse your product? Sign up Liam Neeson. And maybe Pierce Brosnan and Matthew McConaughey as backup.
That's one finding from a study of celebrity endorsers in the first quarter of 2015 by Nielsen, the TV ratings company.
Its TV Brand Effect advises advertisers on how to maximize the efficacy of their ads.
One long-familiar way to do that is to get a celeb to sing the praises of your product in an ad. But of the many celebs available, which are the most likable and thus able to persuade the most viewers?
Answer, judging from Nielsen's top 10 list: Male movie and TV stars.
The study found that Neeson, who starred in a spot for Supercell Games (a Finnish mobile game development company), was the most likable endorser, favored by 78% of Americans who were aware of him.
Brosnan and McConaughey, who both starred in car commercials (Kia and Lincoln Motors, respectively) came in second and third, liked by 75% and 74% of those who knew them, respectively.
There are only three women in the top 10: Jennifer Garner (Capital One Financial) at number 4 with 72%; Natalie Portman (Christian Dior) at number 6 with 71%; and Sofia Vergara (Head & Shoulders) at number 9 at 69%.
J.K. Simmons (Farmers Insurance); Jim Parsons (Intel Computer Software); Dennis Haysbert (Allstate Insurance);and Jeff Bridges (SquareSpace Web Design) complete the list, all with 69% or above likability ratings.
The study found that young people are most likely to report being influenced by celebrity endorsements, so it's in advertisers' interest to target their ads at the audience most likely to respond.

Basted for Bond: Examining Pierce Brosnan’s Brioni Clothes
Posted on 13 July 2015
The next “Basted for Bond” infographic examines the cuts and details of Pierce Brosnan’s Brioni jackets, trousers, waistcoats and coats that he wears in GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day. The main jacket example is based on the middle-of-the-road jackets Brosnan wears in The World Is Not Enough, his best-dressed film. There are special jacket variations for the longer and looser suit jacket in GoldenEye and Tomorrow Never Dies, the double-breasted blazer in GoldenEye, the button one suit jacket in The World Is Not Enough, the linen suit jackets in The World Is Not Enough (with patch pockets) and Die Another Day (with swelled edges) and others. Double pleated, triple pleated and darted trousers are represented, as are five different waistcoat styles that Brosnan wears throughout his first three Bond films, including the unique five-button double-breasted evening waistcoat from Tomorrow Never Dies. Daniel Craig’s Brioni clothes from Casino Royale will be displayed separately.
Our food columnist, chef proprietor of The Little Geranium in La Cala and former chef presenter for BBC’s Ready Steady Cook…Steven Saunders is given a licence to kill!
By Steven Saunders (Columnist) - PUBLISHED - 27 Jul, 2015
IN the early nineties, about 1991, The Pink Geranium (the original Geranium restaurant) welcomed Pierce Brosnan through its doors.
This was actually before he was 007 but he was still a well known actor from the TV series Remington Steele and various films. He was very interested in the architecture of The Pink Geranium and asked about its history.
So I sat with him afterwards and his wife at the time – Cassandra Harris (who tragically later died of ovarian cancer) – told me that she had put Pierce forward to be the next James Bond using one of her connections (she had appeared in ´for your eyes only´).
So what did the next James Bond love to eat, I asked her. And she replied in her soft Australin accent, ‘he just loved your beef fillet with the yellow spaghetti’.
‘Yellow spaghetti?’ They were actually yellow onions I replied.
‘So where in the world do you get yellow onions?’ she asked.
‘We don’t, I make them yellow by adding saffron and a whole lot of other flavours to give the beef a twist’.
‘Bizarre’, she said, ‘but lovely’.
So here it is, my beef dish straight from The Little Geranium Menu in La Cala, one of James Bond 007´s favourites with yellow spaghetti!? shaken a bit but definitely not stirred!
Ingredients for 4
For the onions
2 large white (sweet) Spanish onions
1 good pinch of fresh saffron (you can find other yellow alternatives in Spain made from natural spices which are cheaper but not as lovely)
2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
1 glass of white wine
2 tablespoons of soft brown sugar ( or 1 of honey)
100 grm of butter
A small sprig of fresh thyme
A small sprig of fresh rosemary
For the beef
4 x 300grm pieces of good beef fillet
150 grm of salted butter
Sprig of fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic very finely chopped
2 tablespoons of good olive oil
Maldon salt and black pepper
Fresh green herbs such as coriander, basil and thyme
First make the onions by heating the wine and vinegar together in a saucepan and adding the saffron and let it fuse in to colour the liquid. Once you have a yellow colour, add the sliced onions and then the sugar – stir (not shake!) – and add the herbs. Cook on a moderate heat stirring regularly until the onions are soft and tender and totally yellow. (20 minutes) Now add the butter and stir in. Finally taste and season with salt and white pepper.
Put the onions to the side and focus on this lovely beef. Season well with salt and pepper and heat the olive oil in a small saucepan, then add the chopped garlic allowing it to cook and soften but not fry or colour. Place the beef on a very hot BBQ grill or frying pan and brush some of the garlic oil over. As the beef seals and colours, add a little knob of butter and the thyme and allow the butter to melt into the beef, now add more garlic oil and again allow to melt into the beef while it is cooking. Cook on both sides, repeating the process until medium rare.
Try to get it quite black on the outside but rare in the middle. Allow the beef to rest for a few minutes, top each piece with the saffron onions and sprinkle liberally with fresh herbs and serve immediately. In the Little Geranium we serve the herbs around each piece of beef and then pour around a little red wine jus made from beef bones. You can get the same effect by making a red wine sauce from gravy granules and adding lots of red wine and herbs to strengthen the flavour. Serve the sauce separately in a small jug.
Enjoy this special recipe for a very special agent!
Park City's Nadeau will paint live during arts festival
Artist has an international following

Park City's Josee Nadeau stands by her portrait of actor Pierce Brosnan as King Louis XIV from the film "The Moon and Sun." Nadeau will open the Park City Kimball Arts Festival on Saturday and Sunday and paint live during the free yoga sessions hosted by Lululemon at Zoom and SKY. (Jake Shane/Park Record)
When Lululemon leads free yoga sessions at the SKY and Zoom patios during the Park City Kimball Arts Festival on Saturday and Sunday morning, the fitness gurus will be joined by world-renowned painter Josée Nadeau.
Nadeau, who calls Park City home, will highlight the sessions and paint live from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m.
Instead of painting her trademark water lilies or horses, she plans to paint portraits of Cecil, the lion killed by Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer earlier this week.
" What happened in the past week has affected many people, and, more importantly, Cecil, this beautiful lion," Nadeau said. "I feel if you want to feel, as a human being, grounded and stable, you can do it through yoga, but it's also important to be aware of what's going on around you in the world. I decided that I would paint something that had more meaning at this moment and that the animal's spirit will still be with us."
Nadeau, known for painting at live events for Dionne Warwick, the Footsteps of Mandela and the Salt Lake Symphony, has also gained recognition by her clients who include Robert Kennedy Jr., polo player Tommy Kato, actress Frances Fisher, actor and producer Clint Eastwood, and actor Pierce Brosnan, among others.
Earlier this year, Nadeau agreed to paint a portrait of Brosnan as King Louis XIV, a role he is playing in the upcoming film, "The Moon and the Sun."
"I have known Pierce since 2000 when he asked to be invited to one of my exhibits in Montreal," Nadeau said.
"He purchased one of my water lilies from Claude Monet's garden paintings. It's quite an honor, because he danced around each painting, saying that he wanted them all."
Last year, Brosnan sent Nadeau a photo of himself during the filming of "The Moon and the Sun" at the Palace of Versailles.
"It meant something to me because I was the protégé of Gerald Van der Kemp who's wife Florence was responsible of setting up the Versailles Foundation," Nadeau said. "It was her who offered me the opportunity to work in Claude Monet's studio for 10 years."
Nadeau met Brosnan for lunch in May and they talked about the creative process and that's when she announced the portrait.
"Pierce is a fabulous family man and his love and passion for life is beyond anyone I have ever met," she said. "He and his wife Keely Shaye Smith are collectors and it is an honor [that one of my paintings is hanging] in their home entryway for the pass 15 years."
This is one of many artistic opportunities that have come Nadeau's way in the past few months.
During the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, she presented a show that featured Lord Frederick Windsor as her guest of honor. A few days later, she met Kweku Mandela, the grandson of the late South Africa leader Nelson Mandela."
"This was special because I had painted during the Footsteps of Mandela, which was in honor of Nelson Mandela's birthday," Nadeau said.
The event raised money for the United Nations and Simon Estes Foundation's Nothing But Nets program, which is a global campaign that fights malaria, which is the leading cause of death in African children, according to its mission statement at www.nothingbutnets.net .
"I felt a connection to the Mandela family because of that and then I received a telephone call from Nissa Alloy-Stanfield that said I should go to the Christian Center of Park City because Kweku was going to be there," Nadeau said. "So, I decided to take my painting of Nelson Mandela and they hung it up."
A few minutes later, the younger Mandela arrived and saw the painting.
"As Kweku is talking to me, [award-winning filmmaker and founder of the Utah Film Center] Geralyn Dreyfous arrives, sees us together with the painting and starts crying right before she was supposed to give a speech," Nadeau said. "During that talk, she said, 'This is what Sundance is all about. It's about this connection of gathering talent together spontaneously.'"
Mandela also spoke emphasizing the importance of having Nadeau as an ambassador that will continue to keep his grandfather's voice and awareness alive through painting.
"Footsteps for Peace, which is a continuation of the Footsteps of Mandela, is creating another event in West Palm Beach, Florida, in February where Nadeau will paint again, she said.
The third project the painter did this past year was a 10-foot portrait of Stein Eriksen that is mounted in the entry of the Stein Eriksen Lodge.
"This was done for Stein's 87th birthday and the lodge purchased it," Nadeau said. "It was such an honor for me, I wanted to create a painting that Stein Eriksen would approve being such a legend in the community.
"My palate is very much a pure palate," she said. "Monet used a tertiary palate where all the colors mixed together, but I use primary and secondary colors. I find them refreshing." www.joseenadeau.com
Noble House: A Cream Silk Suit for Leisure Posted on 4 August 2015
Only a year after he finished Remington Steele, Pierce Brosnan played Hong Kong tycoon Ian Dunross in the 1988 television miniseries Noble House. Besides Brosnan, Noble House stars two other actors from the James Bond series, John Rhys-Davies (The Living Daylights) and Burt Kwouk (Goldfinger and You Only Live Twice). Brosnan plays and dresses as Dunross similarly to how he plays and dresses as Steele, though Dunross’ clothes are devoid of the 1980s fashions that dominated his later Steele wardrobe and would plague James Bond in Licence to Kill a year later. For leisure in Hong Kong, Brosnan wears a cream silk suit in Noble House.
The cream suit jacket has three buttons and a different cut than the other suit jackets in Noble House and has a more relaxed look to go with the suit’s more relaxed nature. The shape of the lapels and other small details are identical to on the other suits in the mini-series, meaning this suit is either made by the same tailor or is from the same brand. The other suits are most likely meant to look like they are made by an English-influenced Hong Kong tailor, though this cream suit looks more American.
The suit jacket lacks front darts in the American Ivy League style, thus the front looks boxy. The chest is very lean and the waist is full. The back of the jacket, however, is suppressed to give the jacket a clean and flattering shape. The traditional American Ivy League style has three buttons with the lapels rolled to the middle button—called a three-roll-two—so that the jacket looks like a button two jacket. This jacket, however, is not made in that style. The lapels on this button three suit jacket only roll gently through the top button and are not pressed all the way down to the middle button, but the lapels roll slightly past the top button when the jacket is button. The jacket is detailed with flapped pockets, three buttons on the cuffs and a single vent.
The suit’s trousers have a medium rise and double reverse pleats, which are stitched down about an inch at the top to direct the fullness to direct the fullness to the hips and keep the pleats neat. Though pleats are not part of the Ivy League style like the undarted suit jacket is, the popularity of pleated trousers in the late 1980s means that they accompany this suit jacket. The trousers have on-seam side pockets and one rear pocket on the right. The legs are gently tapered with plain hems. The trousers are worn with a medium brown belt.
Brosnan’s blue multi-stripe shirt is classic, but it is also what was popular in the 1980s. The cotton is medium blue, possibly end-on-end, with navy, yellow and light blue pencil stripes, spaced about 3/8″ apart. The shirt has a point collar, double cuffs and a front placket. The collar, cuffs and placket have 1/4″ stitching. Brosnan’s tie is red with dark blue repp stripes bordered by olive repp stripes. The striped tie pairs well with the striped shirt because the stripes are of different scales and different intensities. The tie’s stripes are in the American directions—down from the right shoulder to the left hip. If the stripes have any meaning in the UK, the American direction negates the meaning of the pattern. As there is no keeper, each blade of the tie hangs freely. When the tie flips up in the wind, a Polo Ralph Lauren label can be seen under the tie. It is possibly that other piece of clothing that Pierce Brosnan wears in Noble House could also be from Polo.
Brosnan matches a dark blue patterned silk pocket square to the dark blue stripes in the tie and in the shirt. Brosnan also matches his red socks to the base colour of his tie. The shoes are medium brown suede derbys.
Are Pierce Brosnan and High-Profile Collectors Really Using Instagram to Buy Art?
Cait Munro, Wednesday, August 5, 2015
The New York Times has finally caught on to a little trend we discovered almost two years ago: collectors—many of them high profile—using Instagram to purchase art from galleries and auction houses.
What took the Grey Lady so long to catch on to this wonderfully democratizing trend? We're unsure, but we do know that it was one Pierce Brosnan who exposed the world of social media sales, which is hidden in plain sight.
In late April, Brosnan visited the showroom of Phillips auction house in London and posed for a quick photo in front of designer Marc Newson's Lockheed Lounge, which he then posted to his Instagram account along with the caption "let the bidding commence."
Later that week, the auction house broke the world record for a design object, selling the work for an impressive $3.7 million.
"It's hard to make a direct correlation between Pierce Instagramming us and the world record, but certainly it made the lounger more desirable," Megan Newcome, director of digital strategy for Phillips, told the Times.
Sure, it's a bit of a different story than the Instagram art sales legends we've heard in the past—such as the one where Leonardo DiCaprio spotted Jean-Pierre Roy's painting, Nachlass (2015) at a Copenhagen gallery. He reportedly used the social media app during PULSE art fair and contacted them to purchase the piece (which, it's worth noting, his art advisor Lisa Schiff denies happened in the Times article).
The painting Leonardo DiCaprio allegedly purchased via Instagram: Jean-Pierre Roy, Nachlass (2015).
But the gist of the story is the same: in a highly visual sector like the contemporary art world, images sell. And where better to find beautiful, curated, filtered images than Instagram?
"When you see something on Instagram that's hanging in a gallery somewhere and you want to acquire it, you can instantly call up the gallery," auctioneer and man-about-town Simon de Pury told the Times. "I'm sure that a number of transactions are taking place as a result of works being shown on Instagram."
While Schiff denies that collectors would deign to use Instagram to buy artworks, uber-collector Anita Zabludowicz cops to having used the app on multiple occasions to scope out potential purchases, especially from emerging artists.
"Instagram for me is one of the most important social media channels as it is the quickest way to absorb visual information, however shallow," she said.

Actor Pierce Brosnan was rushed to Mount Vernon Hospital on Friday after an accident on the set of the new James Bond movie in Frogmore, near St Albans.
Mr Brosnan was filming a fight scene when he was hit in the mouth by a guard’s helmet.
Plastic surgeon Paul Cussons treated the gash with eight stitches.
Mount Vernon spokesman Mark Purcell said: “The nurses have told me Mr Brosnan was extremely charming. Obviously it was quite exciting for them to be treating James Bond – any break from the routine is good news in a hospital.
“He was very patient while being treated. He left after three and a half hours – shaken but not stirred.” Filming of Tomorrow Never Dies, the 18th Bond movie, should end next month.
So I just got back from this surreal and life-altering trip to Kaua’i, Hawai’i to visit my beloved and uber-generous aunt, and there were so many deep and wonderful non-movie-star related things that happened, and I have so much angst surrounding the celebrity-worship culture I hate, that I almost didn’t write about this small and remarkable part of my vacation, but then I reread the bit I wrote for myself in my Kaua’i journal and decided that, well, it just NEEDED to be told.
And besides, the monumental nature of welcoming the cinematic enjoyment of actor Pierce Brosnan back into my life after years of being led astray by a stupid inaccurate tabloid was something that just begged to be written.
A little backstory:
So my aunt and I went for a fabulous hour-long swim in the calm beautiful ocean outside the Hanalei rental house I was staying in on my visit, and we had some amazing, characteristic-to-only-us-female-“LASTNAMEHERE” talks while Brittany (Bethany? Something?) the one-armed surfer roamed the beach.
The surfer was the little coincidence that led me to say to my aunt, “You know, I heard Julia Roberts has a house on this beach!”
My sister — who came with my on my first trip to Kaua’i — and I spent the entire trip looking for her two years ago.
My aunt laughed. And then she reminded me about how she had earlier referred to the house I’m staying in as “Julia’s.” I thought it was the name of the non-megastar owner.
Turns out I was staring winsomely out of Julia’s window wondering where Julia’s house was.
“SHUT. THE FRONT. DOOR.”
I plunged floppily into the ocean like a five year old: much like, now that I think about it, Julia Robert’s character in Pretty Woman when Richard Gere offered her the week-long prostitute gig for $3,000.
So, um, YEAH, I felt this incredible kinship with the house in a way I haven’t felt kinship with a house in, well, forever, and it just happened to belong to JULIA FREAKIN’ ROBERTS, my childhood hero, the one I always imagined being friends with (because THAT’S a unique thought for an American girl).
ANYWHO, I showered in Julia Robert’s shower and dressed looking into Julia Robert’s mirror (which, oddly, I love and feel lovely in, which is the complete opposite from my last Kaua’i mirror experience when I was ten pounds lighter and built like a manic surfer), and my uncle arrived to meet us, and the three of us casually strolled down the beach to their friend’s barbecue.
Enter social anxiety and profuse sweating. But as I stood there initially worrying about being sweaty and awkward, a novel thought entered my mind: They don’t even notice. And they’re sweating too. And you are absolutely fine.
So we proceeded through the evening and had some GORGEOUS food including a pig in a Caja China, because, you know, of course my first freakin’ Kaua’i meal is crispy pig skin all Anthony Bourdain style, and my aunt and I are eating and deeply chatting and thoroughly enjoying ourselves on the front porch and suddenly she asks me:
“Do you like Pierce Brosnan?”
Random, I thought. Okay.
“Well, I was in love with him when I was a kid and watched Remington Steele, but I heard some bad things about him.”
“Where did you hear that?”
“An article,” I answered, feeling foolish the second the words left my mouth. Because yes, everything you read in tabloids is totally true.
“Well, turn around.”
So I did. And there he was. With his family.
Oh right, of course, there’s FREAKIN’ PIERCE BROSNAN strolling across the lawn about to eat pig skin.
I ate my words and the rest of my pig skin and, because, as a former journalist, I know how fickle the news can be, I let go of my unreasonable judgment and allowed myself to simply be entertained by the fact that a giant movie star I used to be in love with was eating pig skin with all of us.
So later I was sitting on the back stairs with may aunt and uncle, and a really cool woman who works for a nonprofit came up and we had a nice chat. My aunt wanted another piece of cake and I wanted water, so I grabbed her plate and hopped in the house and when I came back out, FREAKIN’ PIERCE BROSNAN had replaced nonprofit lady on the stairs.
I stood there for a while, eyebrows knit, with my cake, thinking, “How can I throw this over Pierce Brosnan’s head and into my aunt’s hands and run the hell back to the house without anyone questioning me or becoming seriously injured?”
Turns out I couldn’t ninja my way through that plan, so instead I took a deep, “My Life is Insane” breath, and walked around Pierce Brosnan to hand my aunt her piece of cake.
“This is my niece Gennarose.”
“OH, HELLO!” I screamed into Pierce Brosnan’s ears while shaking his hand.
“I’m Pierce,” he said.
Dear lord kill me. I sat down and tried to be cool and he began the conversation posed on the staircase like a Shakespearean actor, like in the movies, and the surreal-ness of it had me plastered up against the stair railing sort of behind my aunt like a WTF puppy.
Eventually, I remembered the words of my therapist regarding the very unrelated process of dating as my brain tried to process listening to this person sitting in front of me on this gorgeous beach whom I’d stared at in movies for my whole life:
“You behave with people like you’re in an audition. Why do you do that? You are a wonderful person who is kind and generous and entertaining, and YOU should be auditioning THEM.”
Which, in the case of Pierce Brosnan, took on a previously absent level of irony.
So at some point soon after I decided to (humbly) audition Pierce Brosnan. And suddenly things turned around.
It was a really fun interaction after that. He thankfully morphed from the big-screen-idol of my childhood into a very funny, very kind and real-life human being. I was glad for that. I admired his candor and his openness despite him being, essentially, a pillar of modern film culture.
At one point, a gentleman at the party came over to the four of us with a bottle of white wine. I saw him sidling, and hesitating, and eventually, he broke right in, seeing that PB’s (I refuse to write only “Pierce” out of childhood reverence, and the whole name is getting tiresome) glass was empty (mine was, too, but he did not notice that. Understandably, I suppose).
Cue sycophantic talk and over-grandiose self-reference, and the candid, fun conversation came to a strange semi-hault (though PB made a clearly practiced effort to sail through it). Worshipful Gentleman began the conversation with a “You seem to be out of wine.”
PB had been drinking red. Having been a bar manager/bartender, I cringed at the thought of pouring white into anyone’s red glass. PB, however, was more than generous.
“Just put it right here,” he said, holding out his glass.
About ten minutes later, Worshipful Gentleman was still “trying” to open the bottle of white while advertising himself to PB for whatever reason one who doesn’t know him might have (none of which I can fathom).
Frustrated both by the ass-kissing and the fact that I, too, wanted a glass of wine, I grabbed the bottle from Worshipful Gentleman’s hands, popped the cork in under two seconds, and poured him a glass.
“But you should pour Mr. Brosnan his wine first!”
Sigh. So, I looked at his glass, with a bit of red in it. Coopted by Worshipful Gentleman’s worshipfulness and my years of bar management, I almost didn’t do what my instinct told me to do:
Grab PB’s wine glass. Toss remnants of red wine over my shoulder into the beach grass. Pour glass of red and hand it back.
Incipient laughing, thankfully, ensued, and took over my self doubt. Worshipful Gentleman eventually left after several more awkward flounderings, and more highly entertaining sarcasm, cursing, and fun followed.
During this albeit strange but super fun life experience, I happened to realize a few more things:
I am somewhat entertaining to someone like Pierce Brosnan, my childhood idol, even when being my awkward, geeky, true self.
Idols of any sort never live up to their stylized pedestals; and in rare instances, like with PB, they live thankfully beyond them, on the ground.
Deep down, I’ve always known things #1 and #2, and because of that, the night was possible, I believe.
Pierce Brosnan got the audition. And, turns out, so did I.
This Suit is the Fountain of Youth By Liza Corsillo
Last night Pierce Brosnan arrived at Jimmy Kimmel Live in shades of tan and white. His off-duty/pre-show attire was that of a cool nature photographer or a stoned surfer dad (just look at that hand gesture). We can almost imagine him picking up his kids at college in a Jeep Wrangler covered in splashes of mud. The outfit isn't "bad". But it didn't fit him well, and showed signs of exactly how long he'd spent sitting in a cramped vehicle. FYI, each wrinkle represents 20 minutes.
But then a miracle occurred. He emerged, like an alternate reality version of his previous self, in a badass navy suit and striped shirt—no tie. This is exactly how a man of his age and stature (ahem, BOND) should dress. Here is the very important moral to this story: Wear a suit. Wear it like this. And if you're gonna go casual, make sure everything fits well. Long wrinkled shirts will make a mature man look old and a young man look like like a child.
