Andrew Scott’s Max Denbigh, the Director-General of the Joint Security Service who also goes by “C”, dresses in dark suits with a fashionable edge in Spectre. Denbigh’s modern clothes contrast with M’s traditional clothes without looking inappropriately fashion forward. The clothes reflect C’s attitude when he speaks to M regarding his new methods versus the old 00-section: “It’s the future, and you’re not.” C’s suits are rooted in the British tradition with a hint of 1960s fashion, whilst his shirts take their cues from current fashion.
When meeting with M in M’s office at the beginning of Spectre and when encountering M in the corridor later in the film, Denbigh wears a black and grey glen check suit from Burberry. The suit jacket has an English silhouette with straight shoulders and roped sleeve heads. The chest is lean with a close fit and the waist is suppressed, but it’s not as tight as the waists of Daniel Craig’s suit jackets.
The suit jacket has two buttons on the front in a slightly high stance. The lapels are medium-narrow with small fishmouth notches, and they are finished with noticeable pick stitching. The jacket is detailed with straight pockets with flaps, four cuff buttons and a single vent. The suit’s trousers have a flat front and side adjusters. The legs are narrow and straight.
On the two occasions Denbigh wears this suit he wears it with different shirts and ties. The first shirt he wears with it is ecru with a self stripe. With this shirt he wears a black tie with s random pattern of printed white dots that looks like a star-filled night sky. The second shirt he wears with it is cream with grey diamonds, most likely a printed pattern. The tie with the second shirt is black with alternating white and dark grey dotted lines. The dots on the tie clash with the similar scale of the shirt’s pattern. Both shirts are made in the same style. They have spread collars with short stands and short points, button cuffs and front plackets. The ties are tied in four-in-hand knots.
