It's difficult to imagine a man primarily known for his portrayal of 007 in seven Bond films without an innate sense of personal, classic style all his own. Par for the course, indeed. Scottish born Sean Connery fit the Bond-bill better than most; some would continue to argue. With his masculine, angular jawline and brooding good looks he was able to exhibit a mysteriously dark demeanor while remaining distinguished and perfectly charming. It's rumored that he was handpicked for the Bond role due to his sleek, panther-like stride. To get the actor/philanthropist into the proper 007 attire Connery worked closely with director Terrance Young to achieve the specific style and etiquette required of James Bond. Connery didn't necessarily hang his custom suits and sharp ensembles up for good once filming wrapped on his final Bond film, he continued to dress with stylish finesse off-screen too.
We applaud silver screen icons such as Sean Connery that have always taken the time to dress for themselves as well as for others. Even still, this is a well-dressed man that used his financial success and celebrity platform for philanthropic duties all on his own, selfless terms, making constant donations to literally hundreds of charities over the years. Most notably donating his entire salary (well over $1 million) collected from Diamonds Are Forever to the Scottish International Educational Trust, benefitting the lives of thousands of ordinary Scotts. We could all learn a thing or three from Mr. Connery, through style and true substance.
