#257 - Chris Kerr Talks Tailoring Tom Cruise for Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning
Today on the show I'm talking to bespoke tailor Chris Kerr. We've had Chris on the show before to talk about Bond, he did the poker game jacket for Le Chiffre of course, he did the suit for Daniel Craig in the sony advert ahead of quantum.
I went to see Chris in person for a catch up, I gave him a copy of the non-award winning book from tailors with love, an evolution of menswear through the bond films.
So Chris talks mainly about his work on the latest Mission impossible franchise. Its about 20 minutes long, I check in with you after this and give you a bit of an update on whats going on in the world of Bond in some 00RoundUp! Taken from the weekly newsletter.

This episode we’ll dip into some of the financing and brands of the Mission Impossible franchise and pair them off with the James Bond franchise and ask why the brands and licensing is so predominant in the Bond films and not the Mission Impossible films. Or are they?
We’ll take a look at the following subjects, Watches, Cars, Tech and Clothes, and finally finish with personal thoughts on the latest dead reckoning film part one. And where it ranks in the series so far.

Funny, genuine and insightful
Really enjoyable podcast. The interviews are great, but I really love the meandering monologues because they just feel like you’re hanging out and chatting. The style breakdowns of films showcase Pete’s depth of knowledge and passion for both clothes and film, and the anecdotes feel like you’re getting inside info on the QT. Highly recommended!
King of niche podcasts but your here for a reason right? The Bond episodes are fantastic and I love how it’s evolved into other movies (that just so happen to be some of my favourites). I’d also hedge a bet that if you’re this deep down the rabbit hole in Bond, chances are they are some of your favourites too.
Pete’s a great host and gets a lot out of the interviews, I also look forward to the pre/post chat too.
I also like when Pete manages to break Matt’s professional manner and lowers him into something funny!
Amazing show, talking to real tailors, costume designers, great insights
