A Tribute To Sir Roger Moore: A Celebration Of His Signature Style

Always dapper ❤️

Sir Roger Moore’s innate sense of style can never be rivalled.  

Following the news of his death at the age of 89 on Tuesday 23 May, we take a look back at his most suave moments. 

The legendary actor came from an era when movie stars evoked a true sense of individual style and elegance, rather than a stylist’s vision. 

As one of the last gentlemen of Old Hollywood, the former James Bond remains to date the longest-serving 007 - notching up 12 years in the role. 

“I have a uniform of blazer and slacks,” he once told The Guardian.

“It can be worn on all occasions except those that call for black tie or a lounge suit (which is a misnomer, because it gives the impression that you can be lounging around in your pyjamas, which is not the case).”

From silk scarves and black leather gloves to well-cut tailored suits, Moore’s sense of gentlemanly style never once wavered.
