James Bond, in disguise Sir Hilary Bray, keeps warm outdoors on Christmas wearing an Inverness Coat and tweed trilby, appropriate country clothes. The Inverness coat may be mistaken for the more common Inverness cape, which does not have sleeves. Bond’s coat and hat are copies made of those hanging on the rack in Sir Hilary’s office at the College of Arms.
The Inverness coat is the old Victorian and Edwardian style of a knee-length single-breasted coat with a cape attached. Bond’s coat is made in a rust brown tweed with natural shoulders, a Prussian collar, straight jetted pockets and set-in sleeves with a single-button closure.
Along with the coat Bond wears a beige scarf, light olive leather gloves, and a brown tweed trilby. The trilby has a subtle plaid pattern in brown tones with a red overcheck, with a ribbon in the same material. Bond wears a tic-patterned tweed suit under the Inverness coat as part of his disguise.
