The Black Short-Sleeve Shirt in Live and Let Die


Black is neither a natural choice for a warm-weather shirt nor is it one of James Bond’s favourite colours to wear, but Roger Moore wears a casual short-sleeve shirt of black silk in Live and Let Die. The shirt is fitted through the body and has a large point collar, a placket front and a breast pocket. The short sleeves have turned-up cuffs. The buttons are two-hole white mother of pearl. The shirt is worn tucked into the trousers.

Moore’s tan trousers have a darted front, flared legs, and two rear pockets. As usual with Moore’s trousers, there are no side pockets. Belt loops close to the front centre of the trousers frame the belt buckle. Moore wears a wide black leather belt with a large brass centre-bar buckle and black horsebit slip-ons, showing an effective use of black shoes with casual wear.


  1. This was always one of my favorite 007 casual outfits – it set off Moore's tan and would still look good today (minus the flared pants).

  2. The beige trousers look very much like the ones from the beige suit he wore in the previous scenes in Jamaica/San Monique. What do you think, Matt?

  3. No, they aren't the same trousers. The others look like linen and these look like cotton. And the others had side adjusters whilst these have a belt.
