In Licence to Kill, James Bond wears a blue-on-blue shirt and trousers combination that recalls the look Ian Fleming specified for James Bond in his novels. This outfit, while very full cut, was an appropriate update for the time and Central American locale by costume designer Jodie Tillen.
The dark blue shirt that Timothy Dalton wears here is too big by today’s standards but was very fashionable in 1989. The shirt has a button-front with two chest pockets. The yoke extends down the front to the pockets, where it acts like a large pocket flap that closes with buttons. Bond keeps a pair of sunglasses in his left breast pocket.
Bond’s trousers are faded dark blue and slightly lighter than the shirt. They have triple reverse pleats, slanted side pockets and two rear pockets. Bond wears a black belt and black shoes with his blue outfit.
