Pierce Brosnan brings back the button two suit in Die Another Day after wearing primarily button three suits in his previous three Bond films. Of the two examples of the style in this film, the first is a beige linen suit and the second is dark grey with light grey pinstripes, which is featured here. This Brioni suit introduces an updated raised button stance, which has become popular over the past ten years. Fashion has since taken this further by raising the jacket hem as well. Brosnan’s jacket has a traditional length, though the higher button stance doesn’t do his increasing waistline any favours. A lower button stance with a longer lapel line is more flattering to Brosnan’s figure. The jacket has slanted pockets with a ticket pocket, four buttons on the cuffs and double vents. The trousers have a darted front—with a rather generous rise compared to what has become of trouser rises over the past decade—and turn-ups.
Brosnan wears the suit with a light blue Brioni shirt that has a wide cutaway collar, front placket and double cuffs. Since he wears the suit twice in the film, each time it’s with a different tie. The first tie is grey with a blue circle motif, and the tie is still available from Turnbull & Asser. The second tie is a pattern of red rectangles on a navy ground (see below). Brosnan wears black shoes with this suit.
