You Only Live Twice - Shaken and Not Stirred - A Hand Tailored Suit

You Only Live Twice - Shaken and Not Stirred

Welcome back 007.

Ah, welcome aboard. I can see you have certainly made a splash in the newspaper headlines, but let's not get caught up in your celebrity status shall we?

The Mission

We have Intel from one of our MI6 operatives in Tokyo that a war is close to breaking out between the United States and Soviet Russia after the hijacking of American spacecraft Jupiter 16. Both are accusing the other, but we've reason to believe the Japanese are involved after supposed spacecraft responsible for the hijacking landed in the Sea of Japan. Your undercover skills are highly required in this mission 007, as you will meet the head of OSATO Chemicals,  Mr. Osato, after retrieving secret documents from his office. Be careful, as we have reason to believe he and his secretary, Helga Brandt, are working for the head of SPECTRE: Ernst Stavro Blofeld. There will be attempts to assassinate you so please remember: You Only Live Twice.

Your mission: Prevent 'Bird One' from capturing the next American spacecraft  landing into the lair of SPECTRE, and greater still, preventing a nuclear war.

Once in Tokyo 007, report to our operative, Dikko Henderson. You'll be met by Japanese secret service agent, Aki, at a local sumo match. She will wear a sleeveless light green mini shift dress with light green trim and a brooch upon her left shoulder.

Please continue reading for a brief of your mission wardrobe.

Mission Wardrobe

As always 007, dressing for the climate is always important. Please see visuals below:

1) The Grey Herringbone Suit

 From your encounter with Henderson to a Mr Tanaka, (known to his friends as 'Tiger'), we've assigned you a classic two-piece grey herringbone notch lapel suit with a two-button fastening and black buttons on the cuff. Matched with a black tie and the classic white button shirt, it's an ensemble that looks extra sharp with a trench coat might we add.

2) 'Mr Fisher' Suit

It's important you look the part of a businessman, particularly as the head of Empire Chemicals. As Mr Fisher, wear a dark blue single-breasted suit with a matching navy knitted tie, navy trilby and a light blue shirt. The suit is a one-button fastening and made of a strong wool blend, perfectly designed for a getaway if such opportunity is needed.

3) Casual Attire

You'll be spending a bit of time in Japan 007, so we've also ensured you wear something light: a light beige cotton shirt paired with brown trousers, and a long-sleeve pink cotton shirt with grey trousers should keep you cool in action.

You know of your meeting with Henderson 007, but it's always best to be prepared for other encounters:

Mr. 'Tiger' Tanaka

Head of Japanese Secret Service. He will be wearing a two-piece charcoal grey suit with broad shoulders on the jacket and a crisp white tailored double cuff shirt. A black tie with red pattern also worn with a folded white pocket square in his top pocket and straight leg trousers with sharp creases.

Mr. Osato

Head of OSATO Chemicals and Engineering. He may be wearing a two-piece black suit, white tailored shirt with a wide collar. The jacket will have notch lapels and a folded white pocket square in the welt pocket. His tie of choice is a satin black tie with a silver tie clip.

Helga Brandt

Mr. Osato's secretary and potential SPECTRE member. She may be wearing a yellow short-sleeve blouse with a pleated A-line white skirt. Possibly 007, she may also wear a black sequined dress with additional sheer sleeve decoration.

Hello 007, now I've had a very long journey to deliver your gadgets so I'll keep it brief:

Our A-116 autogryo "Little Nellie" is in full operation and heavily armed, so you should find defeating bigger helicopters fairly easy. Please ensure she is brought back in one piece, Bond.

Our safe-cracking gadget should provide you with any safe's combination fairly quickly and should you need them, suction cups designed to be worn on your clothing if you were to find yourself scaling down a wall, or mountain.

I believe Aki is providing your transportation in a white Toyota 2000GT Open-Top, so we can guarantee some transport staying intact.


The American's initial launch was for 3 weeks so time is of the essence in this mission. We must prevent a war. It is important you remember the password Miss. Moneypenny issued you before departure. Do what you must for your country and the world. Please see extra visuals below for this mission.

Stay safe and stay stylish.

Good luck 007.
