The Sean Connery style guide: classic, cool, and casual
From immaculately tailored suits that made him one of the most stylish actors to play James Bond, to the campy Hawaiian and preppy polo shirts he donned casually, Sean Connery's style was inimitable
For his very first appearance as Bond, Connery wore a silvery-grey mohair and wool suit in 'Dr. No' (1962).
In a preppy, pale-blue polo T-shirt, Connery poses with his Rolex Submariner and simultaneously hides his tattoo for a poster for 'Dr. No' (1962).

An infamous number, Connery wore this light blue Terry Cloth play suit to cover up his dark blue swimming trunks in 'Goldfinger' (1964)
In 'Thunderball' (1965), Connery donned this pink linen shirt with camp collars, defined by their distinct flared shapes; now a staple for men to wear in warm weather
In 1988, Connery was awarded the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for playing the Irish-American cop Jim Malone in The 'Untouchables' (1987). The actor was a fan of three-piece suiting since his Bond days, as is evident from this unique waistcoat he wore to accept his award.
His casual-smart approach was defined by comfortable turtlenecks and tweed jackets, another classic combination. (2000)
Owing to his Scottish roots, Connery was fond of his kilts and highland dress, as he wore it while being formally knighted by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II in 2000.
