After my first entry covering The Saint was well received, here’s another from episode 2 of series 5 called “Interlude in Venice.” This episode is notable for featuring two actors from the Bond series: Lois Maxwell (Miss Moneypenny) and Paul Stassino (Angelo Palazzi and Major Derval in Thunderball). Moore wears a white dupioni silk dinner jacket made by Conduit Street tailor Cyril Castle. The dinner jacket has a single-button front, shawl collar and three-button gauntlet cuffs. The buttons are white mother of pearl. The jacket is tailored with soft shoulders, a clean chest and a suppressed waist. Like a proper dinner jacket, it has jetted pockets and no vents.
The dinner jacket is worn with black darted front trousers from Cyril Castle with a black satin stripe down each leg. There is no cummerbund or waistcoat.
Moore’s white dress shirt from Frank Foster has a spread collar, pleated front and double cuffs. There are mother-of-pearl buttons down the placket, which has two lines of stitching close together down the middle of the placket. A close-up of the cuffs shows a waffle weave texture, which is not typical of pleated shirts. It might be the case that the shirt in the close-up shots is a different shirt altogether, but this could be a textured pleated shirt. Moore wears a black matte silk—possibly barathea—narrow batwing-shaped bow tie and keeps a black silk handkerchief in his breast pocket.
