Since it’s now well into winter in the northern hemisphere I’ll be writing about something cold-weather appropriate, an outfit from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Bond wears a light brown cardigan with a five-button front, raglan sleeves, and open patch pockets. Bond sometimes leaves the top button open and folds back the cuffs. The shirt from Frank Foster is brushed cotton twill in a small tattersall pattern in tan, brown, navy and olive on an ecru ground. The shirt has a spread collar, button cuffs and a plain front without a placket.
The trousers are a brown tick-pattern tweed from Sir Hilary Bray’s tick-pattern suit he wears earlier in the film. The trousers are fairly slim cut and sit a little below the waist. They have double forward pleats, slanted pockets and button side tabs. The bottoms are finished with turn-ups, which sit on top of mid-brown full-brogue, wing-tip, three-eyelet derby shoes with rubber soles. You’ve probably noticed Bond’s Rolex Chronograph in the close-up picture of the shirt cuffs. For the record it is ref. 6238.
