This skimpy floral sarong was taken from the unconscious body of one of the villains, and reveals how much taller than other actresses Diana Rigg is - it only just reaches from low on her breasts to the tops of her legs.

Peaked cap and greatcoat

She’s probably wearing the leather hipsters with polo necked blouse seen above, we only see the blouse on screen.

Steed appears to be wearing a navy peaked cap and greatcoat over a white t-shirt, although where he acquired any of this attire is beyond me.

White fishnet body stocking with feathers

White fishnet body stocking adorned with (probably) canary yellow feathers to cover the obvious, worn over skin-tone underwear. Initially worn with her ‘Chemin’ black and white striped coat and white shoes.

‘Chemin’ black and white striped fur coat

She wears a black and white striped fur coat, dubbed “Chemin” by the designer, John Bates, worn over the golfing attire seen more clearly below.

Worn in:

Suede jacket

He wears a light brown suede military-style wind jacket with matching trousers. the jacket has epaulettes and patch pockets with metal stud fastenings, and the jacket zips up. Underneath he wears a dark collared shirt and mid-tone jumper with probably forest green neck and hem. It must have been cold during filming!

Golfing attire

She wears a hipster golfing outfit - white military-style shirt (chevroned pleated patch pockets, epaulettes and tight cuffs with black metal buttons), worn with cream hipsters with a canvas belt and black and white checked scarf. Initially with the coat above.

Slate grey overcoat

Slate grey double-breasted overcoat, single vent, thick black collar, flat pockets and black leather buttons. Worn with a black bowler, black leather gloves, black umbrella and black trousers. He’s wearing a white shirt and dark tie, but if he’s wearing a jacket under the coat I can’t tell - this outfit also turns up in the colour season.

Worn in:

Dark skivvy, light plus fours

Checked plus fours with a dark rollneck skivvy and soft hat. Worn while Steed’s running around the golf course - the hat is revealed to have been lined with a metal band to prevent him dying when shot by a golf ball.
