What are your favourite Avengers fashions from the series?

This is one of mine - Diana's black vest and hip-hugger white/cream pants and a h-u-g-e belt from Small Game for Big Hunters

Well with clothes it's always important who wears it, and yes this is a very appealing outfit.

Anyone who knows me will know that sartorial elegance isn't exactly one of my strong points, but I must profess to a preference for Diana Rigg's more outlandish costumes in Series 4 (B/W) over those from other eras. I'm thinking of stuff like the PVC creation she wore in A Surfeit of H2O.

Honor Blackman's leather fighting suits were pretty damned fetching too.

Yes that's a good choice Alan, especially in the tag scene, she looks so sweet and sexy at the same time.

Emma has such good clothes throughout the show. She, Cathy, Steed, and Gambit I think were among the best dressed. Tara and Purdey fared less well, I'm sorry to say.

I actually prefer the Emmapeelers to the leather gear, myself, a particular favourite being the black and silver number from The Hidden Tiger. Same goes for the pink dress and coat in that episode. But the hiphuggers and sleeveless shirt are very sleek.

For Steed, I'd pick any of his suits from season 4. That was his best season sartorially.

And I like the skirt/blouse outfits favoured by Mrs. Gale (Don't Look Behind You, etc. I'm too unfamiliar with that era to remember all of them).

Gambit's black pinstripe is also wonderfully cut, and they gave him a wonderful navy double-breasted suit that frustratingly we only get a glimpse of in Medium Rare before they pan off and it's never seen again! I want to grab the cameraman and pull him back. Argh.

One of my favorite outfits is the green suede ensemble Mrs. Peel wear in "The Winged Avenger." I love the swing back of the jacket, and the thigh-high boots with suspenders are soooo mod.

I like the PVC mac and beret that goes with the vest and pants too. They still look completely up-to-date and stylish.



I should have really credited the designer - John Bates.

I like those John Bates designed that really work for the Black and White visuals. The target motif beret that she wears in Town of No Return works so well. The hipster trousers like in the picture above suit Rigg so well (like in Hour that Never Was). I like those leather dungarees that she wears in Cybernauts. In colour I really like the aforementioned green suede outfit from Winged Avenger.

Honor Blackman looked great in that blouses with high wasted skirt and trailored jacket. She looks superb in the slightly masculine style clothes. Anything with a little top hat. She had a few jackets that really hugged her body really well, perfect for her shape.

Linda Thorson had a lovely outfit in Fog, the red coat with black fur trim. I like those culottes with the waistcoat. She looks really cute in the black leather jacket from Wildest Dream/They Keep Killing Steed. I love the bizarreness of the morning suit and top hat from Legacy of Death.

Yes, I loved Tara's red coat as well, and all the outfits you mentioned above. For Purdey, I liked her red outfit from Dirtier by the Dozen, and the blue dress from The Lion and the Unicorn. Oh, and the red dress from the early scenes in K is for Kill. Even the black sheath dress with slits up the sides from Medium Rare. They should have given Purdey more tailored clothes along those lines, with simple fabrics and fewer prints. [/i]

Funny, but I never really paid much attention to the women's fashions on the show. Probably because I was too busy looking at the men Very Happy ...ahem...Anyway, I agree that Purdey and Tara were given some horrible outfits especially Tara during the time she was at her heaviest. Why such loud and wide colors when more subtle colors and trims would have made her appear much thinner. Slacks didn't suit her at all and she had fantastic legs, so why not more of the skirts...that tartan one she wore in Have Guns Will Haggle was perfect.

The most important question would be why did the costume designers let Patrick Macnee wear those god-awful larey shirts (and those sideburns!) in the Tara King series?

Weren't those Patrick's choice? It's been awhile, but I thought he was chastised a bit about those. I had wondered if he had chosen them because it was the style back then and he was trying to make himself look a little younger because of Tara (ahh..a woman's influence on her man!).

Fashion is an important part of the Avengers, the hip and modern Mrs. Peel and the classic Steed.

I like Emma's modern clothes but I also like the bit more conventional stylish clothes.

This is a personal favourite of mine, she looks very attractive in it:


And maybe I'm being a typical dirty male here but this one is really sexy:


And that very becoming little dress for The Murder Market


Another black thing that looks good on her:


Shame we only see this one for about 30 seconds only:


A bit odd, but she looks great in it:


I usually don't really like brown with beige:


Another great little dress:



And don't forget Steed's beautiful suits. Almost always impeccably dressed, accept for that furry thing in the MAN EATER FROM SURREY GREEN and some clothes from the Tara King era.

Yes, I like that one too and at the end of the episode she puts on the upside down visor! Great!

Some great ones there! And, I particularly like the black outfit you show with the blue coat and mod hat in 'Escape in Time'

I also like that outfit from 'A Surfeit of H2O' - the pvc affair with target bonnet

Isn't that more of a mauve/beige ... Question I like the pattern but not the colours - looks a little grubby...

Emma in leather/PVC....




This leather and black material with a beret and patterned headscarf really shouldn't work, but I love it.

I was trying to discreetly hint at the shape not the colour or the pattern.
