If there is one place appropriate to wear safari clothing it has to be the jungle. In Moonraker, Bond wears a putty-coloured cotton drill safari suit that’s quite traditional, at least above the knee. The safari shirt-jacket has a four-button front—there is no collar button—and Bond buttons the bottom three. It has four patch pockets with flaps and box pleats, deep side vents, one-button cuffs and shoulder straps. The collar is a two-piece shirt-style collar and has slightly rounded points.
A fitted cut is the biggest difference this safari shirt-jacket has from the traditional safari jacket, which has a straight cut and a belt instead for shape. Because this shirt-jacket is fitted, there is no need for a belt. This safari jacket shows little of the 1970’s trends.
The matching trousers are full-cut with a wide and slightly flared leg, the only concession in this outfit to the 1970s. They are worn with a tan, brown and white striped web belt with a D-ring buckle. The only part of this outfit that is inappropriate are the beige slip-on shoes. Waxed leather boots would have been a more practical choice.
Frank Foster likely made the shirt-jacket, but someone else would have made the trousers.
