James Bond (Daniel Craig) wears a brown Giorgio Armani leather jacket in the movie Casino Royale (2006).

The jacket is worn during the scenes in Miami, when Bond kills Alex Dimitrios at the Body Worlds exhibition and follows his henchman to the airport.

The soft brown leather jacket has four pockets with snap-closure buttons, two inside pockets and matching lining.

In a 2006 interview with MI6, Lindy Hemming talks about the jacket:

"Well, there’s a leather jacket that Daniel wears in the film. That jacket was $4,000 when I saw it in Los Angeles and I showed it to him and we all agreed it had to be in. And so I talked to Armani and they said ‘yes, yes, OK, we’ll make it for you..’ and I thought ‘oh no, we’ll never be able to afford this..’ and I warned everybody and said ‘look,, it’s this really iconic jacket but it cost $4,000…’ and we needed like a huge number, probably 25 – you can see how the budget goes up. But do you know that they made them for me in the factory and they only charged me something like 400 euros each. So things like that are really great."

In 2008, a screen-used Armani jacket was donated by Daniel Craig to be auctioned at Bonhams to raise money for children's charity Barnardos. The jacket, signed and inscribed in black marker by Daniel Craig, Casino Royale '06, with Eon Productions Limited certificate no. 07501, was sold on 15 January 2008 for £4,800 (€5,400 / $5,500) including premium.

Complete the look
Bond wears a grey Sunspel crew neck shirt under the jacket, with grey/brown pants, black leather shoes and he uses a Sony Ericsson K800i mobile phone and sports his Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean watch.

Armani clothing was also worn by Judi Dench in the same film, and Rosamund Pike wears an Armani Coat in Die Another Day.
