Dressing in James Bond’s Tuxedo

The Concierge: Jennifer Bennett, Four Seasons Hotel, New York

The Arrangement: Three weeks before her wedding, a regular guest from Lexington, KY, informed then-concierge Bennett that it was her fiancé’s dream to get married in the James Bond “secret agent” tuxedo made by Brioni of Rome. A typical Brioni tux takes four weeks to make, the Bond version worn by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale was a one-off, and the factory in Rome was closed for the summer. But the company was convinced to enlist a team of villagers outside Rome to each make a portion of the garment, and the pieces were collected and sewn together in a record 36 hours. The hotel then flew the tailor to New York for a personal fitting of the groom days before the wedding. He enjoyed showing off the secret pockets for concealing knives, guns, and other assorted weapons.
