Bouc Returns in "Death on the Nile" - A Hand Tailored Suit

Bouc Returns in "Death on the Nile"

Bouc, friend to Hercule Poirot, played by Tom Bateman.

He became a good friend to the Belgian detective in the previous adventure of "Murder on the Orient Express" and now, the humorous Bouc returns once more in Egypt. Bringing a certain uplifting vibe and character, it seems Bouc has got himself caught in mystery of "Death on the Nile"; but his style remains individual and showing of his likeable character. Let's explore just three of his best attires from the film.

 Outfit #1

Suits and safari-style jackets quickly become established with the attire of Bouc and during the wedding party, he's seen sporting a two-piece linen number, styled in a double-breasted cut for such a formal occasion. The jacket features four light brown buttons on the front and cuffs to complement the light ivory tone of the outfit, whilst the wide peak lapels help to balance out the padded nature of the shoulders. To mirror his more uplifting personality, the double-breasted jacket is kept slightly casual with a patch pocket on the chest and two more on the bottom. The linen is kept sharp with centre creases on the trousers and a straight hem on the jacket. Wearing his subtle striped shirt open collar, he accessorises with a light sage/muted green tone scarf, an accessory quickly associated with Bouc.

Outfit #2

From a double-breasted cut to something a little more casual for Bouc (but still in keeping with his personality), he's spotted wearing a light pink safari-style jacket, paired with a light cream polo knit underneath and worn with a pair of tan trousers for that bold element to the outfit. The jacket has four-button cuffs and light brown horn buttons again, so not as to distract from the soft shade of jacket and top underneath. The jacket features notch lapels and two box pleat patch pockets with flaps on the chest, leaving the other two at the bottom to be flatter designs. He leaves the jacket unfastened and the belt loose, hanging down the sides whilst maintaining a strong tailored line across his shoulders for his daytime attire in Egypt.

 Outfit #3

More jackets and open collar shirts are worn by Bouc as the mysterious "Death on the Nile" continues, with another attire of his including this brown and pink colour combination. Just after a commotion aboard the SS Karnak, Bouc is seen rushing on deck wearing a notch lapel brown jacket, paired with a darker brown pair of trousers that are styled with a lighter belt on the waist. Again, the shoulders are well tailored in this effortless, smart/casual look, not forgetting his signature silk scarf for his evening accessory to complement the light pink shirt worn underneath. The classic welt and two flapped pockets also feature on the jacket front and the cuffs finished with four buttons for a smart finish.
