Gentlemen: Have you ever had the desire to dress like James Bond?

Ladies: Would you like your male companion to rock a Bond outfit–or that of another dashing Hollywood legend?

I’m a member of several groups on Facebook with dapper/classic men’s attire as the subject. 

A post caught my attention.

The article was about the gray suit worn by Bond in the movie, Goldfinger

It was the scene in Kentucky at Goldfinger’s ranch.

Don’t get me wrong, neither my naivety nor my vanity are influential enough to make me think I would ever look as good as Sean Connery, much less attract a woman like Honor Blackman

Over that last few years I have become acquainted with several of the members of these groups off line–in real life. One of them is an advisor/stylist. Neither your typical clothier, designer, nor tailor. David Ambrico really enjoys helping twenty-first century clients look their best in classic designs of yesterday. You don’t have to be a movie star to look your best.

A common thread (no pun intended) in my attire is trousers with pleats, cuffs, and a hat. Ambrico likes ‘em, too.

I asked him if he could help me with the Bond/Goldfinger suit and he answered confidently, “Do you want the same color pallet?”

And so began the odyssey of my first movie inspired ensemble. 

It also was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. That’s the way Ambrico works. He forms a relationship with every client, helps them make the most of their wardrobe, and customizes their attire to compliment their own unique “brand.”

His clients include actors, writers, leaders in financial services, influencers, aficionados, and a cast of characters as diverse as the swatch books he uses.

He, like I, believes that not only do clothes make the man, but the man makes the clothes look their best.

It works — and so does he.

Ambrico helped me take advantage of the clothes already in my closet before I purchased anything from him. Since we began working together, I have made smarter investments in suits, shirts, trousers, and accessories.

Now I dress with confidence in business environments, dinner meetings, and on the golf course. 

Dressing well is good for my business(author and photographer.)

He can do the same for you.
