BOND LIFESTYLE – HOW TO LIVE AND DRESS LIKE JAMES BOND, 007
HOW TO LIVE AND DRESS LIKE JAMES BOND
Growing up, I watched a lot of James Bond movies, they were my favorites. I remember wanting to be Bond…James Bond right from when I was a kid. I was lucky enough to have a dad who loved Mr. Bond movies [especially those ones played by Sean Connery and Roger Moore] and a mum who is often referred to as Jamie Bond [a female James Bond as my lovely cousin Kamdi would often call her because of her love for fast, sleek and classy cars]. Any weekend we visit the barber’s shop for a hair cut is also an opportunity for us to buy at least one James Bond movie from the Barber [who also sells and rents video cassette in the same shop back then].
When little kids were busy watching Jackie Chan movies and practicing Karate, I wasn’t bothered, just play any of these movies : Dr. No, Live and Let Die, From Russia With Love, The Man with the Golden Gun or On Her Majesty’s Secret Service …and I’m fine! I was about 10 years old then, I would try to dress like Mr. Bond especially on Sundays (suits and bow ties), stand, walk, sit and even drink like him etc. I would sneak into my dad’s room, open the wardrobe and grab a bottle of his favorite Ardbeg Scotch Whisky pour some into a wine glass and pretend as if it was Martini shaken not stirred as I gulp down the liquor. though I can’t count the number of times I broke those wine glasses.
As I grew up, I found myself loving other good things he loves like luxury cars, good wine & cocktail, beautiful intelligent women, looking good, living well, being strong, bold, confident and fearless and all things beautiful.
I guess that’s how my Fashion and Lifestyle Brand – the KOBI KOACHMAN brand was born, a brand that is all about true style, classic men’s elegance and high-quality living.
Here we are in this modern age, 2017, I think I’m finally living like Mr. Bond except that my car isn’t yet an Aston Martin D10, but guess what? I have a feeling that the producers will be switching to Mercedes Benz [specifically F015 Luxury in Motion] as the official car for James Bond in the next 007 movies, and if they do, I guess I’ll completely be living like him, however still as Mr. Koachman.

Jaguar C-X75 also featured in SPECTRE as a villain’s car, driven by Mr. Hinx (played by Dave Bautista). Also, a Range Rover Sports SVR and Land Rover Defender will be seen in the film, driven by a villain or henchman.

James Bond loves Spirits, Wines and Other Drinks like Cocktail.
For spirits, he has a fondness for Vodka and has in the some of his movies drank Absolut vodka, Stolichnaya, and Finlandia. He also loves Cognac, Bourbon, Whiskey (Jack Daniel), Rum (Mount Gay rum with soda). It is also believed that Macallan Single Malt is one of Bond’s favourites.
For Wines, he is known to prefer Bollinger and Dom Perignon champagne. He is not much of a red wine drinker but he favours Chateau Mouton Rothschild. He also expresses a knowledge and appreciation of South African Wine.
For the cocktail, he likes his Martini Cocktail when it’s served at the correct temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (37° Celsius, normal body temperature) and usually uses the catch phrase “Shaken, not stirred” to describe his preference for the preparation. He also likes Mojito (a cocktail that consists of white rum, sugar cane juice, lime juice, sparkling water, and mint). Outside of alcoholic beverages, Bond is a coffee drinker and hates tea with a passion.
