Connery had established Bond’s suit as either grey or blue, with the occasional brown. But George Lazenby’s first suit as Bond is none of the above. It’s a cream linen suit, appropriate for a warm resort in Portugal. Lazenby’s Bond is introduced with a more fashionable and rakish suit, with a more suppressed waist, a shorter jacket length, a more rounded front skirt opening, slanted pockets, deeper double vents and darted-front trousers.
The suit is made by Fulham tailor Dimi Major. The jacket has a button two front and swelled edges. The shoulders are straight with a soft layer of padding and natural sleeveheads. The chest has a full cut and the waist is suppressed. The sleeves have the then fashionable touch of only one button. The buttonholes are sewn with a darker, contrasting thread. The narrow-cut trousers have plain bottoms and no break.
Bond wears a fine pink cotton shirt from Frank Foster with a moderate spread collar that has a quarter-inch tie space and rounded single-button cuffs. His navy silk knit tie is a familiar piece that Connery wore occasionally in his Bond films. Bond’s shoes are cream slip-ons with a monk strap. Though they have a strap and buckle, the shoes have the lower vamp and quarters of a slip-on shoe.
