In For Your Eyes Only, James Bond goes out in the country dressed in a sage green suede blouson, an ecru cotton jersey short-sleeve shirt and light brown trousers. The blouson is made with set-in sleeves, a yoke in both the front and the back, a zip front, and lower pockets that open on the sides. The sleeves are pleated and the cuffs close around the wrist with a button. The blouson does not have a collar. Since there are many people around in swimwear, the main purpose of the blouson can only be for concealing the Walther PPK, not for warmth. The extra pockets also come in handy.
The shirt made by Frank Foster has a large spread collar, cuffed short sleeves, a darted back and an open breast pocket with mitred corners. The shirt’s placket is stitched close to the centre like on most of Frank Foster’s shirts, but it is also stitched on the edge of the placket since jersey doesn’t keep a crisp crease. The buttons are, of course, mother of pearl.
The light brown heavy linen flat-front trousers have a rear pocket on the right and a coin pocket below the waistband on either side, but they have no side pockets. The trousers are held up by a brown leather belt with a brass buckle. The socks are light brown in just a shade lighter than the trousers. Bond’s shoes are brown leather, apron-front slip-ons with a metal horse bit and a tall heel. The shoes a likely from Salvatore Ferragamo.
The Frank Foster shirt was auctioned at Prop Store on 16 October 2014 for £1,200.
