Roger Moore wears a warm outfit for climbing up to St. Cyril’s Monastery in For Your Eyes Only. He wear a brown hooded monk’s robe but removes it to reveal a dark blue quilted gilet. The gilet has a zip front and is between waist and hip length. There are navy suede patches on the front of each shoulder. The gilet has two rounded pockets in the middle of the chest that are accessed from either side of the zip, two lower patch pockets and game pouch at the bottom of the back. Barbour makes similar gilets, but this one could have come from any number of retailers.
Under the gilet, Moore wears a chunky Shetland wool jumper in a two-tone effect light and dark grey. It has a mock polo neck collar with a rather large opening, since it can be folded down far enough that a shirt collar can stick up over it. The jumper appears to be very warm, though chunky knits aren’t so popular today. The dark blue shirt underneath is made by Frank Foster has the same large spread collar that all of Roger Moore’s shirts in the 1980s have. The shirt’s colour is close to but slightly light than gilet’s blue.
The shirt and gilet are light and bright enough that they don’t clash with the black corduroy trousers. The trousers have a straight leg and plain hems. The lace-up climbing shoes are medium blue with black soles.
Two different Frank Foster shirts were auctioned at Prop Store. The first, sold on 16 October 2014 for £800, is made of cotton jersey and has two-button mitred cuffs, an mitred open breast pocket and a placket with four rows of stitching, both close to the centre like on most of Foster’s shirts but also on the edge. The edge stitching keeps the placket crisp on the edges since cotton jersey doesn’t keep a crisp crease. A second shirt, sold on 23 September 2015 for £800, is made of a thick woven cotton and has two-button mitred cuffs, no breast pocket and a placket only with two rows of stitching near the centre. It’s possible both shirts could have been used for these scenes at St. Cyril’s.
