James Bond: Casino Royale, Bullet Proof Vest

original movie costume

On a visit to a secret basement below Harrod\\\'s department store in London, James Bond [Peter Sellers] is outfitted in this bullet proof vest.

Fabric, velcro, non-functional metal zippers.

Union Jack is a replica, the original presumably removed when the garment was used in later productions.

Match based on zipper details, evidence of original Union Jack stitching, more.

The commentary improvised by \\\"Fordyce\\\" (actor John Wells) duing the sequence is sheer nonsense:

Just some protective clothing.
It is, of course, Sanforized, Lana, and also available in chocolate, oyster, and clerical grey.
It’s hand-reefed and, of course, double charvered.
- Poison capsule compartment.
- Combined switch blade and Geiger counter.
- Intercom button with midget transmitter suitable for short range contacts.
- Infrared camera.
- Tape recorder.
- Button hole Beretta.
… and a cute little mini gun in the gusset.
