Sean Connery is reintroduced as a 1970’s James Bond in Diamonds Are Forever wearing a ribbed terrycloth shirt. For Connery, terrycloth isn’t limited to his playsuit in Goldfinger. Terrycloth shirts were popular in the 1970s, and they must have done a great job at absorbing sweat in the warm setting where Bond wears this shirt. The mottled cream and beige shirt has four large buttons down the front placket, a camp collar, two breast pockets with flaps and box pleats, and a straight hem. The short sleeves are in two sections, with the ribs in a perpendicular direction on the lower pieces. A seam that comes up to a point attaches the bottom part of the sleeve to the top. The back of the shirt has a curved yoke that points down to a centre box pleat down the rest of the back.
The cream trousers have a no pleats, plain hems and a self-supporting waistband with an extension. The trousers aren’t seen much in the film, but they are likely the same trousers from the cream linen and silk suit that he wears at the start of the film and when meeting Bambi and Thumper. As seen in behind the scenes photos, Connery does not wear shoes with this outfit.
