    Try to talk without your hands…it will go along way..

    Great breakdown of a timeless style icon. I would like to see some pictures supporting your references to the various fits you describe.

  • Kevin

    Great, love the gun and the end and the sound effect perfect.  We, I have to learn to be less up tight and your teaching me its ok to relax. Good suits, good shape pay attention, classics rule.
    Thanks.

    I always enjoy your videos, but I agree with Chase–some pictures illustrating some of these items (in any of your videos) would provide immediate reinforcement of the ideas you are discussing, and it would also help us visualize what you mean. In certain videos you are discussing items that I have no clue what they look like, so I’m lost for the remainder of that section.
    But overall, love your website, love your videos, and love the James Bond sound effects! (Maybe you should be the next Bond)
    Thanks for doing this!

    Very good vidio presentation.  Analysis of Bond well done (although I would not be at all surpised to learn that he is dressed by Moneypenny!).  Your videos are well done, your presentation is extemporaneous, without being unfocused or flippant.  Sometimes I would like to see an illustration or too…a visual prop to help explain some of the details…it would also help to break up the visual of one pereson talking for ten minutes (however, you carry this off very well).  So for longer videos, use some illustrations or move the camera.   As far as not using your hands while talking; that is outdated thinking.  The new rule for today’s video attuned generations is: use your hands to provide additional movement, but not to distraction.   You are fine.  Very solid presentation.   An arguement could be made for not using illustrations, etc.  You provide a great deal of info throughout your websight, so details can be seen elsewhere.  The video is an informal presentation of some tangential issues. Perhaps that is your intent.  I have learned a great deal from you and am putting in to action,as well.  Thank you.  Cheers  TNB

    I agree TBanbury, while illustrations would be nice, the way the videos come across as informal is a great touch the they have. If illustrations were added in an improper way they would detract greatly from the message itself.

    What about the idea of adding a photo reel or links below the video to give the readers something visual to hold on to, or something to take to our personal tailors? All in all, great stuff, keep it up Antonio.

    Very informative video Antonio, thank you. For those of you asking for images I suggest you check out The suits of James Bond at bondclothes.blogspot.com

  • Johnnydepth

    Thanks Antonio! That was a good breakdown of 007′s style.

    I agree with Michael that an image every so often as your presentation moves forward, would be very beneficial – picture worth a 1000 words etc. Only shown for a few seconds while you could carry on your narration with the perfect image displayed for us to look at.

    For example a pic of Daniel Craig in the black Casino Royale Brioni dinner suit (with peak lapels) and then a pic of him in the midnight blue Tom Ford (with shawl collar) number from Quantum would have been perfect.

    Then perhaps a quick pic of a dinner suit with the “less correct” (and amazingly common) notch lapel and guys will be put onto the right path with you hammering the point home visually.

    A still or two of Connery from back in the day looking sharp in a suit and casual dress, such as his Slazenger golf jumper would have been pure gold, since the viewer could nod in agreement as the images appeared and really get what you are saying.

    If not stills props (as suggested by TBanbury) would work as fine.

    This is not a criticism at all by the way – you are such a good talker these videos are great as they are, I just think the images would be a help. Rather like a model at a set of orders before the operation goes down!

    P.S. It’s Pierce Brosnan and not Bronson but I think you got away with it!

    Thanks for the breakdown!

    On a presentation note, visual aids would be helpfun, as I can’t picture some of the things you’re pointing out about the series.

    I can’t seem to win with this one – 50% like 50% don’t – I think I should have just been holding a Walther PPK.

    Michael – thanks for the Love!  Yea, I know we need to add more images tot he video.  Right now though that takes post production time from 30 minutes to 3-5 hours per video…..time I just don’t have:(  Look however for higher quality videos in my upcoming membership website!

  • http://twitter.com/ATailoredSuit Antonio Centeno

    Got it – will be looking to add them!

    Thanks Johnny for the detailed feedback!  Yea, I messed up on the name but I’m doing these video in one shot and trying to keep my editing to less than one hour post production.  The idea of comparing Brioni and Ford is interesting – it would be like comparing a Ferrari with a Lotus – both amazing, just different takes on what is style and masculinity.  Maybe this Fall?

    Great blog – I’ve been there many times!

  • http://twitter.com/ATailoredSuit Antonio Centeno

    Thank you sir – I agree that I can’t please everyone, and just am going to do it my way.  Not to say I won’t listen too advice…..but at the end of the day I do this work because I enjoy it and want to help men learn to love dressing well and the pleasures/advantages that come with owning your look.  

    Great to hear you’ve taken action – curious – what steps have you taken?

  • http://twitter.com/ATailoredSuit Antonio Centeno

    Thank you Chase – the photo reel and hyperlink is a great idea…..I’ll have to crack the whip on my editing professional and get her working on it:)  Haha!

  • http://twitter.com/ATailoredSuit Antonio Centeno

    Kevin – thanks for the positive points and I’m glad you caught my fun part at the end!  I’ll have to do things like that with more of my videos!

    Thanks again Chase!

    Thanks Antonio. It’s good to be reminded of the classic’s and using James Bond was a good move!
