Slick secret agent James Bond has been deemed in need of a makeover - and British designer Ozwald Boateng believes he's just the man to do it.

Savile Row designer Boateng, who has dressed such actors as SAMUEL JACKSON, Russell Crowe, Daniel Day-Lewis and Will Smith and most recently Laurence Fishburne and ADRIAN and Neil Rayment for The Matrix Reloaded premieres - thinks 007, currently portrayed by Pierce Brosnan, should return to his London roots.

He says, "Traditionally Bond wears Savile Row suits. But Pierce has been wearing Italian suits. We need to get him back to Savile Row. But I'm optimistic."
