Daniel Craig featured in August Esquire

Apropos of this month’s cover story on Daniel Craig, those hepcats at Esquire have a new issue with cool James Bond stuff.

There’s a pretty interesting interview with Mr. Craig, which of course touches on the next (as yet untitled) Bond screen adventure,

Filming starts soon, and Craig tells [Esquire] he’s “really fucking really lookin’ forward” to working with its team

and a thoughtful analysis of the signature 007 cocktail, the Vesper.

As good a place as any to start is a slideshow featuring A Fashion Lesson to Learn from (Nearly) Every James Bond. Messrs. Connery, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan, and Craig show off their trademark 007 looks for us mere mortals to copy.

Through the decades, Esquire magazine — much like its little brother Playboy — has been both a champion and a critic of the James Bond phenomenon. But it’s always been generous in its coverage; Bond fans would do well to keep up with this venerable organ of men’s custom.
