Scene Sighting | The "Bond" Peacoat

A big bloody ship.

I knew instantly: The Fighting Temeraire towed to her last berth by James M. W. Turner. The allegorical foreshadowing was foreboding in Skyfall for those who know the painting, but just a painting for others.

It certainly wasn't the only eye catching piece in the film. There was of course the peacoat.

Had it not been for the details, there's a good chance that I wouldn't have noticed it. But during the Shanghai scene, every time Daniel Craig turned a corner the upturned collar revealed a leather detail that made the coat appear traditional with just a hint of individuality; it appealed to my southern groomed sensibilities.

And why would it not, the designer himself being a purveyor of contemporary southern clothing.

This Billy Reid peacoat is now immortalized: the Bond Peacoat. Is it a cause for clamoring? For a select few, yes, but the piece is now only available on backorder; tragic.
