N.Peal James Bond No Time To Die
by Stephen Garner

Cashmere knitwear brand N.Peal has launched its Navy Ribbed Army Sweater and 007 Combat Trousers as worn by 007 in the upcoming James Bond film, No Time To Die, releasing in theaters October 8th.

Available in a blend of 90 percent superfine Merino wool and 10 percent cashmere, the Navy Ribbed Army Sweater features canvas patches on the shoulders, cuffs, and elbow and is augmented by a drawstring neck. The 007 combat trouser is made from 100 percent cotton and features gunmetal zips and poppers and three pockets.

Modeling its design on British Military Commando sweaters and Combat Trousers, N.Peal developed these pieces with No Time To Die costume designer Suttirat Anne Larlarb. “We wanted to give Bond a unique look in specific scenes of the film,” said Larlarb, “And yet the piece had to be action-ready.  It needed to be a strong silhouette, something that harks back to his military past and which also had a timeless quality to it as well.”

The N. Peal team worked with Larlarb’s brief, detailed photographs of authentic Commando Sweaters and 007 Combat Trousers and samples of extant vintage pieces to create the unique piece of clothing that Bond wears in the film and in his striking character poster.

“When you have the number of decisions that you are required to make, for each and every detail, for every item of clothing, in a film of this scope and size, having a collaboration such as the one we had with N. Peal was a godsend,” Larlarb added.

For N. Peal managing director, Adam Holdsworth, the collaboration was equally rewarding. “We’re very pleased to work with the James Bond franchise and our project with Suttirat and No Time To Die is something of which we are very proud,” he said.

N.Peal also supplied a cashmere T-shirt for the film, worn by Madeleine Swann. These signature pieces are exclusively available from N. Peal prior to No Time To Die’s theatrical release.

N. Peal previously worked with the filmmakers on Skyfall in 2012, providing a Blue Wave Roundneck Sweater for Bond and on Spectre in 2015, supplying 007 with a superfine cashmere Turtleneck and a light grey Rollneck.
