Summer is nearing the end, but linen suits still have a little time left before they go out of season. When visiting Cuba in Die Another Day, Pierce Brosnan wears a casual dark tan linen suit from Brioni, with strong padded shoulders, a clean chest and a longer jacket length. The fabric is probably on the heavier side for linen, so it rumples more than it wrinkles for a casually elegant look. Yet in a plain weave it still breathes well and is comfortable in warm weather. This is one of the few button two suits Brosnan wears in the Bond series. When the 1990s went out, the button three suit was no longer at the height of fashion and the button two grew in popularity again. This suit jacket is detailed with swelled edges, double vents, flapped pockets, and four buttons on the cuffs. The buttons are tan corozo nut.
The darted front suit trousers have a tapered leg with turn-ups and are worn with a dark brown belt. Brosnan wears the suit jacket open and with an open-collar shirt. The shirt is dark blue with stripes in what may be orange and yellow. The shirt has a camp collar, a plain front and button cuffs. Dark shirts ordinarily don’t pair well with suits, but it works here because this suit is casual and Brosnan does not wear a tie. Ties and dark shirts never pair well together.
Brosnan’s shoes are tan hand-sewn Venetian slip-ons (loafers) with perforated quarters. Venetian silp-ons have an apron toe with a plain vamp. They are made by Stemar in Italy, which is a better choice for Cuba’s hot weather than Brosnan’s usual heavier Church’s shoes. Having a lightweight sole and perforated quarters, they are a breathable and wear very cool. A signed pair of these shoes was sold at Heritage Auctions on the 23rd of August in 2014.
