James Bond is six foot tall, with blue-grey eyes with a hint of anger, a rather cruel mouth, and a lean body weighing around 165 pounds. To keep in shape Bond has been known to perform a morning routine of 20 slow press-ups, enough straight-leg lifts to make his stomach muscles scream, 20 toe touches and finally arm and chest exercises combined with deep breathing until he is dizzy. He has several visual distinguishing marks; a scar down the right cheek and on the left shoulder and signs of plastic surgery on back of his right hand.
He favours a dark blue suit of serge or tropical worsted or alpaca, depending on the climate, a heavy white silk shirt and a thin black knitted silk tie and black moccasin shoes. More informally Bond wears dark blue trousers, a sea island cotton shirt in white or dark blue and black casual shoes or sandals and on the golf course he wears a black windcheater. For the really casual look we read in Doctor No that “Bond fitted himself out with cheap black canvas jeans and a dark blue shirt and rope-soled shoes”.
Bond has a few accessories, which are expensive, but unostentatious. These include a Rolex Oyster Perpetual on an expanding metal bracelet that was used to great effect in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service as a knuckleduster, a wide, thin cigarette-case of black gun-metal and a black oxidised Ronson lighter.
James Bond has also been known to carry an attache case containing thirty rounds of ammunition, two throwing knives, a cyanide pill and fifty gold sovereigns and a tube of Palmolive shaving cream containing a silencer in the case.
