Connery - Swiss Poplin / Cocktail Cuff

Our classic collar is based on the collar worn by Sean Connery in the early James Bond films, same spread, same collar point depth, same collar height handed to us by a master shirt maker who was there when Sean Connery was being fitted for his shirts. Terence Young, the director of the early Bond films, probably the closest to a real life James Bond read oriental history at Cambridge and an Irish Guards officer, took Sean Connery under his wing. He took him to dinner, showed him how to walk, how to talk, and most importantly to his tailor and shirt maker, where this collar was developed. Great with a tie or worn open, casually.

Terence Young was also a fan of cocktail cuffs, a two button turnback cuff, also called cowheel in the trade and known in continental Europe as a casino cuff. Due to the popularity of the early films, this cuff is also now known as a James Bond cuff.

Made of Alumo Supraluxe 120/2 ply cotton from Appenzell, Switzerland that has been sanforized so there is virtually no shrinkage, this is the fabric we use for our made to measure shirts, and have had only compliments.
