Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I asked only regarding the playsuit
But I imagine it’s for all the items

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Don’t see the Goldfinger shorts or the setters in sky online? Is it only a store release?

Great write-up, Matt. So it seems that of what you guys were shown, only the Goldfinger and Skyfall swimsuits were held back?

EDIT: whoops, didn't see this new page!

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Matt, a very informative write-up.

It reminded me of some details of the Thunderball wardrobe I had forgotten. First was that the pink swim shorts had belt loops. The second was that Bond's long-sleeved polo was black.

Now I don't feel bad skipping the OB navy long-sleeved polo. Turns out I already have a Sunspel long-sleeved polo in black.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

My DR NO polo is a brighter/bolder blue than I was expecting - here it is next to Orlebar's Riviera Toweling polo.

I also got the Espadrilles but the size is a little iffy for me, so I can't give proper feedback yet.

That ribbed collar and sleeve banding looks great. I wouldn't be surprised if that style makes it way to other OB items not Bond related. Same with the Diamonds are forever shirt and thunderball shirts. I see them releasing more colors in those styles.

That OB dark navy l/s polo is REALLY, REALLY nice though.  I tried it on yesterday and felt awesome in it.  It's one of 5 items on hold for me.  I'd give it a second look if I were you.

Great write up on bondsuits, Matt.  Nicely done!

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

OK, bought my items and back at work.  I'm currently wearing the AVTAK jacket and honestly, this thing is gonna get a LOT of use.  Some of the other pieces are a bit more specific in terms of 'when can I pull off wearing this thing', but I can bust this jacket out any time.  Same with the LS TB polo shirt.  Speaking of which, I'm glad to see that this LS polo got a lot of love in the live stream that Dave did for the release.  It really is a great shirt.

I'm second guessing my decision not to get the robe.  I didn't notice the 'property of Dr. Julius No' tag on the inside...that kinda increases the cool factor by a million.  I may have to get it after all.  I'm also considering the OHMSS linen shirt as the thing fit me very, very well.

Ach...it's only money, right?

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I have to agree with some that the price on that Thunderball polo is crazy. I was going to get a few of them but not at that price. I don't know how that polo is the same price as the View to a Kill jacket.

I think mentioned them before but in the 90s there was a company called Carstarphen that made 100% Sea Island Cotton polo shirts. And they were no where near $400. In fact I think they were barely $100. I think I still have one of them. But I should have purchased more. I found this old article about the company.

https://robbreport.com/style/fashion/wa … on-240796/

But overall the collection is a good idea. I can't wait to see the next part.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Hmmm wonder what inspired pieces they could do for next collection.   That alone be a interesting topic.

Judging by the Orlebar items sold out in various sizes this has been quite a hit already and only first “official” day

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

When I checked nothing I wanted was sold out.

I still want a light weight jacket like Dalton wore in Licence to Kill. Probably some more Connery items. I need to look and think about it. They need to get those prices under control though.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

OK, here are the pics that I took yesterday when trying on the 5 items that I bought at lunch today.  All are size large.
I'm 5'9"
Size 41 suit
Size M or L on shirts (depending on the brand)
Size 15.5 32/33 on dress shirts
Size 32 pants

Here's the AVTAK jacket.  Again, this is my favorite piece by far.  It looks, fits, and feels awesome.  I cut the tags off of it right away and I'm wearing it right this very second at work.  I can live in this thing.
https://i.postimg.cc/MMn0hVc5/AVTAK-Jacket-02.jpg

Here's the DAF camp shirt.  I like it a lot but I'm unsure on the scenarios under which I'd be wearing it in 'civilian' life.  Maybe I can get away with it as an every day piece
https://i.postimg.cc/fJc7nwbG/DAF-Shirt.jpg

Here's the DN Polo shirt.  It's a very comfortable shirt with some really nice detailing on it to set it apart.  Again, I'm not sure on wearing it as an every day shirt but I like it a lot.
https://i.postimg.cc/dLPRx7JR/DN-Polo-Shirt-02.jpg

Here's the TB camp shirt.  It's pretty standard and easy to put into your every day rotation of clothing.  It's very comfortable and fits nicely.
https://i.postimg.cc/bd2Hg0fN/TB-Camp-Shirt-02.jpg

Here's the TB long sleeve polo shirt.  It's a really deep navy (almost a midnight blue) and is really, REALLY a nice shirt.  It's a very flattering fit (at least on me) and I feel like a million bucks in it.  I had to buy it even if the price did make me flinch a bit.

The prices make the TF QOS Polo a bargain given its a custom made item from TF

Anyone knows if Ross's promo code works in the US? I tried to enter at checkout but I got a message saying it's invalid.

Think OB have made it so it can’t be used on the Bond collection

That assumes one prefers the QoS polo to some of these items. I know I do not.

It allowed it at first But think they spotted people were using for Bond Collection stuff, I was not even able to use a founding member discount on my order
