Sometimes even James Bond has to give the suit a break.

Daniel Craig’s bold fashion in the new poster for the upcoming film “Spectre” has sparked a strong reaction on social media, but he’s hardly the first man—or the first secret agent—daring enough to wear a turtleneck in the spotlight.

Here, a look at other leading men who made the look their own:

Does this mean turtlenecks for men are making a comeback? Tell us what you think!

Leonard Nimoy

Fashion critics might call this one a mockneck, but it’s hard to forget Leonard Nimoy’s unique style as Spock in “Star Trek.”

Sadly, the respected actor died last month at age 83.

Robert Redford

Of course, James Bond fans were quick to point out how similar Craig’s look is to one worn by Roger Moore, who played 007 in several films in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Rock

We’re not sure if The Rock will ever live down this look from the 90s: a black turtleneck, gold chain and a fannypack to boot.

Pierce Brosnan

Actor Pierce Brosnan tried on the trend with a chunky, charcoal gray turtleneck when he played James Bond in the 2002 film “Die Another Day.”

For his role as Erik Lensherr, later Magneto, Fassbender wore a sleek and simple black turtleneck often under a black leather jacket. Super fashion powers, indeed.
