In order to commemorate six decades of the dashing secret agent’s screen presence, Anthony Sinclair is producing a 60-piece collection of apparel and accessories that will be unveiled throughout the coming year. The collection will include timeless garments designed by Anthony Sinclair together with items created in collaboration with a number of other celebrated British brands.
Anthony Sinclair fitting Sean Connery with handmade bespoke suit
The inaugural piece is undoubtedly one of the most famous suits ever made. The mid-grey, Glen Plaid, three-piece ensemble worn by Sean Connery in Goldfinger (1964) whilst rolling in the hay with Pussy Galore, has continued to be Sinclair’s most requested design.

Historically, the defining details of the suit, such as the neat lapel on the waistcoat and DAKS tops on the trousers, have only been available through handmade bespoke production. These features have now been added to the Special Order tailoring service, allowing screen-accurate versions of the suit to be made in stock sizes, saving considerable time and expense.
Neat lapels transform the classic waistcoat
The Special Order service offers the opportunity to make adjustments to standard suits sizes to optimise fit. There are also endless style options, allowing the customer who’d rather not have the high-rise, pleated-front trousers of the original suit to request a slimmed-down version.

Hundreds of other fabric, lining and button options are available on request. Fittings for Anthony Sinclair suits are available at their London and Houston locations, and at trunk-shows across the United States.
