What were they thinking back then? Knit and let die as posed by the future James Bond. I can understand Roger Moore taking up the offer of advertising revenue at the time as he was obviously a young, struggling actor. But…..come on. The dashing, suave and sophisticated Mr Simon Templar could pack a punch to stop the hardest of criminals.
Saville Row Suit
Often dicing with death as James Bond, beating bombs, machine guns and lasers, always smart in his Saville Row suits, seen here in knitted jumpers that make him more like fireplace salesperson of the year! I’ve nothing against fireplace salespeople, but, I doubt they’d hardly make a good James Bond.
What Is It?
And that guy sat in the chair with his mug of coffee? Is it a coat, a dress or what? It must itch like mad if he’s wearing nothing underneath. It won’t have done his street cred any good either, no matter how much he was paid. I bet that smile would soon fall from his face if his mates knocked on the door and he’d be struggling to move away wrapped up like a bell tent.
The full balaclava‘s look evil, but I doubt if they’re from the 60s or 70s. They look very modern. I remember wearing a balaclava when I was a small lad, but on adults, they seem to take on a sinister effect. Almost as though they are bank robbers. They just don’t look right and I’m sure if you walked into a shop while wearing one it wouldn’t be long before the police arrived, complete with knitted truncheons!
For those that missed it, I have my own beautiful knitted cardigan here:
