Whereas Sean Connery and George Lazenby wear solid grenadine and knitted ties in their James Bond films, Roger Moore often wears solid ties in other weaves. In The Man with the Golden Gun (below), Roger Moore wears a red tie with a pebbled effect with his grey chalk stripe suit, that may be created by floated yarns to give the tie texture. Turnbull & Asser’s “Lace” ties are a great example of a textured pattern.
The satin silk tie is the shiniest tie and is most appropriately worn in the evening or for more formal occasions. The satin weave has an even shine due to a high number of floats. The light blue satin tie that Moore wears with his navy double-breasted blazer below is also from The Man with the Golden Gun.
The last tie of this entry is the shantung silk tie. Shantung silk is woven in a plain weave and has a ribbed and slubby yet very shiny surface. It’s very unique and can be worn for a variety of occasions, from sporty to formal. The blue shantung silk tie that Moore wears with his single-breasted blazer below is from The Spy Who Loved Me.
