Probably woven of pink and white yarns, this pink soft linen and cotton blend shirt is ideal for warm-weather casual wear. Bond’s shirt is made by Turnbull & Asser in the same style as his formal shirts with a spread collar, a narrow placket on the front and two-button cocktail cuffs. This shirt in You Only Live Twice is the only time in the series that we see Bond wearing cocktail cuffs for casual wear. This outfit shows how versatile the cocktail cuff can be, from casual wear to lounge suits to black tie.
Bond’s grey tropical wool trousers have side-tab waist adjusters, an extended tab front held with a clasp and frogmouth pockets. The trousers have a darted front (with the darts centred above the frogmouth pockets) and sit at the waist. Bond’s footwear is brown leather sandals, without socks of course. Sandals are something that Fleming’s Bond wore in the tropics, but in dark blue or black leather. However, in Fleming’s You Only Live Twice Bond wear black plastic sandals with nylon socks.
