Live and let live the retro Bond trunks!

With Bond fever having raced through everyones veins APL couldn't help but notice the similarity of these now retro swimming shorts to those of Mr Daniel Craig - the latest James Bond. Although the males in this John Adams image may cause the discerning viewer to cast a lingering look due to their fashionable attire, we don't think the star of Casino Royal has anything to worry about just yet!

If this amuses then please explore further into the depths of APL's website using keywords such as Retro, Fashion, Stylish.

Have a fantastic 2007 - APL look forward to hearing from you soon.

These guesthouses provide a romantic, exotic and charming alternatives to standard hotels and a unique experience of living in the old Moroccan style complete with Turkish baths and mint teas. This industry provides a huge support for architectural restoration projects in the otherwise dilapidating medinas of Moroccan medieval towns.
