James Bond – the fashion model

Both Sean Connery and Roger Moore had more in common than being James Bond – they were also models, but very different kinds of models. Roger Moore donned cardigans and sweater-vests in the late 1940s and early 1950s while Sean Connery often wore just a posing pouch for artists. When Connery did model clothes it was for Vince Man’s Shop – a Carnaby Street shop in London that catered to a gay clientele in the late 1950s and 1960s.
