Christoph Waltz will play ‘the coolest Bond villain ever’ (according to GQ) in ‘Spectre’ due to hit cinemas on November 6th. You can’t see what he’ll be wearing yet – in the teaser trailer, he’s masked in shadow but in the long tradition of Bond villains, a dinner jacket and possibly even a Nehru jacket are likely to feature somewhere. 

In conversations with Chris recently, it turns out, between his father and himself, they’ve made suits for no fewer than four Bond villains.

#1 Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky
