Pockets like that have been around forever. The idea is to allow you to get to your suit pockets without having to undo the coat if it is all closed up.

I say that as someone with a taste for the theatrical and a coat in almost that exact color and pattern.

Then they could have done a sequel where Sean teams up with Steed, thus creating the best movie ever made.

Even without Sean, OHMSS is the best movie. not only is the co-star the best ever, but it's actually based on what happens to be the best Bond book Fleming ever wrote. Lazenby mars it, but doesn't ruin it. I'd give Dr. No second.

I didn't think Lazenby was that bad, and it was probably the best movie. Second would be FRWL, in my opinion.

He wasn't that bad. But he wasn't the best either. That was my point. I should rewatch FRWL. For some reason, it doesn't stick in my mind though.

Doc, where's that pic of Steed in the pinstripe with that Other Woman?

I agree about OHMSS being the best book, and agree that Lazenby wasn't that bad, but still think the movie would have been vastly improved had it starred Sean.

While Dr. No is my personal favorite, I tend to think Goldfinger is the best overall entry in the franchise. Or at least its purest distillation.

Note how both Goldfinger and OHMSS star the lovely ladies from the Avengers. Coincidence? I think not.

It's an interesting question whether Connery and and Rigg would have worked together. I think the chemistry would have been different.

I look at how well she worked with Patrick on the Avengers and think Lazenby just dragged her down. The chemistry would have been different with Sean, I'm sure, but it might have been better.

I'll look for that pic here in a second. I probably have it in my Photobucket.

My recollection from seeing this posted before is that it is RL of some line or another, but I can't be sure.

That is from an Ede & Ravenscroft catalogue.

Alright, so this has been on the back of my head for a few days now. I think this is what I settled on:



Doug Hayward's glenplaid suit for McQueen in the original Thomas Crown affair.
