In Casino Royale‘s black & white opening sequence, one of Bond’s outfits is a navy linen suit. Navy is the best of the dark colours for linen suits, which are usually found in shades of beige. Bond’s suit has natural shoulders and a button two front, with the high button stance that was popular at the time. The high button stance doesn’t function well when closed, but Bond wears it open anyway. The jacket has swelled edges, 4-button cuffs, double vents and patch pockets. The patch pockets are a classic feature on warm-weather suits as they don’t require a lining to be placed inside. The trousers have a flat front and plain hems.
The blue and white end-on-end shirt is likely a linen and cotton blend. It has a tall, 2-button spread collar, placket and short sleeves. Though most suits should be worn with a tie, a casual linen suit is one of the few that can successfully be worn without one. Bond wears the suit with brown suede chukka boots and a dark brown leather belt. Though the scene is in black and white, colour photos can be found in the book Bond on Set: Filming Casino Royale by Greg WIlliams.
