Footballer turned Hollywood actor Vinnie Jones proved clothes make the man when he forgot to draw the curtains while dressing for the Hong Kong launch of his new clothing line.

Early guests, gathered in the garden of an awesome glass and chrome Bowen Road house (far right) owned by Vinnie's major investor, rag-king Sam Wing-sun (right, with Vinnie), were startled to see the star of Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels appear at a bedroom window in just his boxer shorts.

'Obviously, he had no idea we could see him,' reported one woozy female guest. 'He tried on a number of different shirts before a woman, I think his wife, gave him the nod.'

Speaking later to SAR, Vinnie said: 'Hong Kong is a great city. I was taking in the skyline view while I was upstairs dressing. It's amazing.'

Considering the reputation of the former Chelsea midfielder and his frightening turn as Snatch's Bullet Tooth Tony, East End enforcer, SAR didn't dare mention the great city had also taken in a view of its own.
