James Bond Underwear and Swimwear

From Dr. No to this summer’s Skyfall, James Bond movies have been an enormous part of culture and cinema history. An icon of cool, James Bond is the ultimate man’s man. He travels to exotic locations, drives iconic cars, meets beautiful people and wears incredible clothes. We know it’s hard to keep track of  his undergarments in 23 movies; that’s why we put together this handy guide to James Bond underwear and swimwear that was either actually worn, or what we are pretty sure Bond would wear, anyways. Check out our list below, where we show you every 007 actor and tell you how you can dress down like the world’s greatest secret agent.

6. Daniel Craig

Who can forget the famous Casino Royale scene in which Daniel Craig emerges from the water in that tight swim trunk? It introduced Bond to a new generation, defining him as  serious, powerful force rather than a pretty boy who relied on gadgets. The swim trunk is a La Perla Grigioperla Lodato from the Spring/Summer 2006 collection. If you’ve got a body like Craig’s, this is a great way to show it off.

5. Pierce Brosnan

Pierce doesn’t spend a lot of time in his undies during his James Bond years, but given the special effects and gadget driven plots of many of his films, we can guess what kind of underwear this James Bond would wear. You can bet that the guy who owns an invisible car probably has the most high-tech underwear in the world. We’re guessing Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond is a Frigo man.

4. Timothy Dalton

Timothy Dalton portrayed a darker and more serious James Bond. His was the suffering Bond, who drank heavily and often loathed his work. What kind of underwear would such a man wear? We assume he would stick with something basic and utilitarian – something like Jockey briefs.

3. Roger Moore

Roger Moore played a more light-hearted James Bond than some of his successors. A world-traveling playboy, his James Bond was a man who loved the finer things in life. You can bet a man like that  changes his brand a lot, but perhaps in his travels he picked up a sexy pair of Hanro underwear, an elegant and classy, Swiss brand founded in 1884.

2. George Lazenby

George Lazenby got a lot of flack for his portrayal of James Bond, but his performance has received more praise in recent years. Lazenby, who is actually Australian, could be a fan of AussieBum, but we’re going to assume that his character would wear Pringle underwear since both the brand and the character are of Scottish descent.

1. Sean Connery

Who can top the original? Sean Connery, for many fans, remains the ultimate James Bond actor. If you want to imitate the famous spy, you could do a lot worse than to start with the man who made Bond popular. Here, James Bond is wearing Sunspel swimwear. As an homage to the brand and the classic Bond films, Casino Royale featured Daniel Craig in a Sunspel polo.
