In Die Another Day, Pierce Brosnan briefly wears a charcoal serge suit. It’s his typical Brioni button three suit with straight shoulders and roped sleeve heads. Charcoal worsted flannel is a versatile three-season cloth in a temperate climate. Worsted flannel woven in a basic four-harness twill weave with 45-degree wales on both sides but has a raised nap on top. Compared to the more traditional woollen flannel, worsted flannel is woven with combed yarns instead of woollen flannel’s carded fibres. Worsted flannel is much harder wearing than woollen flannel, making it better-suited for James Bond’s rough lifestyle.
Brosnan wears the suit with a white Brioni shirt that has a cutaway collar, double cuffs and a front placket. His mid-blue tie has a tiny pebbled or honeycomb pattern, similar to grenadine garza fina silk. But the tie’s texture is probably woven with floats instead. It’s tied in a four-in-hand knot. Brosnan enters the scene wearing an overcoat and scarf, which I will look at in more detail later.
