Marc-Ange Draco, played by Gabriele Ferzetti in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, is one of the best-dressed characters of the James Bond series. For his own birthday party at a bull fight in Portugal he wears a dark brown pinwale corduroy sports coat. Judging by many similarities in the cut and in the details to James Bond’s jacket in this scene, Draco’s jacket is likely made by the same tailor, Dimi Major. Major made other clothes for Ferzetti in the film.
The jacket is cut with a moderately full chest and soft shoulders with roped sleeve heads. The jacket is a button three, and the lapels roll at the top button. Draco chooses to fasten the top two buttons. The lapels allow the top button to fasten, but they also have an elegant roll if one chooses to only fasten the middle button. This type of cut has the most versatility of all button three cuts. The jacket is detailed with swelled edges, slanted hacking pockets, three buttons on each cuff and a single vent in the rear.
The jacket looks perfect on Ferzetti. Dimi Major did a superb job fitting the jacket, especially considering that cotton doesn’t tailor as wool or linen does. With Ferzetti’s cool tan and dark hair, a dark cool brown jacket suits him quite well. This jacket looks infinitely more modern and wearable today than Bond’s houndstooth jacket does because its a more casual material in dark solid colour. The rest of the outfit isn’t as wearable in most settings today, but it is still well put-together.
With the jacket, Draco wears an ecru shirt—likely silk—with a “Lido” or “Cooper” collar, which is a type of one-piece collar like a camp collar. The underside of the collar continues up from the body of the shirt whilst the top side extends down into the shirt. The cuffs are square, and each likely fasten with a single button. The shirt has a raised placket, which is unusual for a shirt with a Lido/Cooper collar. The shirt’s buttons are black shell. Frank Foster possibly made this shirt as he was involved with George Lazenby’s shirts for On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Draco wears a silk day cravat under his shirt. It is pale yellow with a printed brown grid. At each intersection of the grid’s lines is a grey diamond with a black border.
Draco’s trousers are stone—likely cavalry twill—worsted jodhpurs with a flat front and frogmouth pockets. The trousers have an extended waistband with a hidden clasp closure and likely have adjusters on the side since they are not tailored with belt loops. Like the jacket, these are also probably made by Dimi Major. The jodhpurs are tucked into tall black leather English riding boots.
