Roger Moore’s 1980s clothing is for the most part very classic. Bond often wears a black shirt with black trousers for his nighttime spying, but in A View to a Kill Moore caves to 1980s fashion and wears a midnight blue velour tracksuit from the Italian sportswear comapny FILA. At the time, tracksuits weren’t just athletic wear, they were a fashion item. The jacket has raglan sleeves, a zip fastening and welted pockets with elasticised cuffs and an elasticised hem. There is white piping on the seams, down the shoulders and sleeves, and across the pocket welts.
The jogging pants are made in the same velour as the jacket and have an elasticised waist with a white tie fastening. Underneath the suit Bond wears a medium blue crew-neck shirt. Bond wears black trainers. Can anybody identify them in the picture below?
The tracksuit was sold at Christie’s in South Kensington on 12 December 2001 for £470.
