Bond's Italian Bond

"...Haider is the founder of Aspetto, a custom bulletproof clothier, which he runs along with Robert Davis. The front room of their small store in Fredericksburg, Virginia, is littered with silk swatches from Italy, wool remnants from leftover suiting and lists of measurements, all the makings of an old-school tailor shop. The back, however, is covered in what the owners call "ballistics", but most of us would refer to it as bulletproof gear..."

Of course, arguably Italy's greatest contribution to the Bond legend is the Aston Martin DB5 designed by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. 

Once again, we see not too far strays Italian influence.
