Footballers weren’t considered to be fashionable until the 1960s when the England and West Ham captain Bobby Moore began to change that. Moore’s style has been described as mod-ish – he favoured sharp suits, polo necks and drainpipe trousers – and in 1962 the fashion bible Vogue took the unprecedented step of featuring Moore in a shoot alongside a group of models. Fashion photographers were always eager to work with him and Terry O’Neill took a renowned picture in the middle of Epping Forest of Moore in stylish attire with his wife Tina wearing an England shirt as a mini dress.
An older Moore shows off some of his fashion range. His growing celebrity status didn’t affect his form for West Ham.
