New Bond inspired camp collar shirts added to Mason & Sons collection

16 August, 2019

Mason & Sons added three new shirts to their selection of camp collar shirts, currently available with a 20% off coupon code if you order three or more shirts.

The camp collar shirts have an open-neck and short-sleeved design, and is usually cut straight in the body from fine cotton or linen, making it the perfect relaxed garment for hot summer days. James Bond wears several camp collar shirts in the Bahamas in Thunderball (1964).

Mason & Sons just added three 'cotton seersucker' fabric shirts to their camp collar shirts collection. The Blue Striped shirt and Pink checkered and Blue checkered shirts are loosely based on the shirts worn by James Bond in the film.

The Pink Checkered shirt can be spotted when Bond and Domino are on the beach and when he kills Vargas. Bond wears the shirt together with pink Jantzen shorts.

The Sky Blue Stripe shirt is worn by Bond when flies with Felix Leiter in a helicopter over the ocean, searching for the Vulcan, and later when Bond visits Largo at his Palmyra estate.

The Blue Checkered shirt is similar to the shirt worn by Bond when he's in the second helicopter ride with Felix Leiter, searching for the Vulcan and flying over Largo's Villa Palmyra. He wears them together with the blue Jantzen swim shorts with dark blue belt.

A pink linen camp collar shirt is worn by Bond during his first meeting with Domino, together with a blue pair of Jantzen shorts. The pink shirt (and the shorts) were also recently re-created by Orlebar Brown for their 007 Collection.

A navy camp collar shirt is worn by Bond when he and Felix Leiter meet Q and he receives his Geiger watch (but that shirt in the film has a pocket at the lower half of the shirt in stead of a breast pocket seen on the Mason & Sons shirt).
