Sir Roger Moore talks of his fascination with fashion
The seven time 007 actor admitted in a new interview to being "such a ponce" when it came to fine clothing and footwear.

, Moore recalled his time in the army just after the War: "For ten bob the sergeants would press your uniform. Iâd turn my trousers inside out, put soap down where the creases should be and turn them over and the crease would stay put. I couldnât stand the flannel shirts, so I was relieved when I was commissioned and got to wear a soft silk shirt."
It was at that time he met the actress Kay Kendall who gave him a quirky nickname based on his outfit. "She nicknamed me The Duchess. Everything shone; my buttons and shoes were shining."
