Re: N.Peal 007 Cashmere Collection

It was something that came up in my chat with Adam Holdsworth in my livestream on Instagram for TBE. The OHMSS cardigan was on their shortlist, but Adam felt that it was borderline- it could have come off as a bit old man. I was hoping for it too, though.

Have to say I am really excited for this collection, and from what's been shown it is going to be well sought after.

The only disappointment for me was that the OHMSS light brown cardigan he wears at Piz Gloria is not featured, that is something I have been coveting for some time. I can only hope a future release will include this, and hopefully the high collar button cardigan DC wears in the CR pre-title sequence.

Saying that kudos to NPeal for producing such a wonderful collection

I too would have loved to have seen the OHMSS Cardigan. Hopefully, in the next run.. ajb007/confused

If there's something that interests me, it would precisely be the DAD Ballantyne turtleneck and the CR unidentified cardigan. My reaction may change, of course, but so far nothing of what I have seen has piqued my interest. Then again, I've been equally uninterested in the OB issued material. I'd just like for them to keep making the Setter in Skye colour, minus the 007 logo (and yes, I do know they still make it in a similar one).

Don't get me wrong, it's nice of them to do this, but I tend to dislike "franchiise-branded" items, even in a subtle manner.

That being said, I'll keep looking and will be happy to change my mind if something does interest me. Hopefully one of the two items I named MAY be made?

They are indeed making the DAD turtleneck!

That would have been great if they did a cashmere grenadine. Fermo Fossati weaves cashmere-blend grenadines. But the cashmere knitted tie that they did is very nice!

Re: N.Peal 007 Cashmere Collection

Hi Chris. For versatility, go for either the 5 button TLD long sleeve, the Goldfinger "Laser" combo or possibly the DAD or GE jumpers, I reckon. But for sheer 60's cool, it has to be the OHMSS Golfing bomber/orange mock turtle. But in all honesty, I'd take the whole collection in an expensive heartbeat...

What more are you looking to know about the knitted tie? It's very nicely made of a very thick knit. It makes a great knot!

FYI, knitted ties and grenadine ties are entirely different things. At first glance they look similar, in the same way that a pomegranate and a tomato are both red fruits.

Re: N.Peal 007 Cashmere Collection

I wish they'd release the prices already. A few have trickled out via various sites but some of us are budgeting here!

(On the other hand, by not releasing the prices they seem to be ensuring I overspend the day the collection goes live.)

The prices of the pieces I have are in line with the items already in their range. That might give you an idea.

Well, if you're in the UK maybe not. 295 pounds for the thunderball polo is the same as for the V-Neck alone. Compared to the US price though of $495 for the polo, much better deal to go with N.Peal because the quality is on another level even if the set will cost more.

Matt says the prices should be about the same as the other pieces in their line. That means expensive but my main thing is not paying a Bond premium. I accept N.Peal is expensive so that's to be expected. When the Orlebar Brown line came up for sale, I was stunned at the prices I was looking at. People paid them though, so good for them.

You can get serious discounts on OB stuff if you be patient and shop around, much harder to do with N.Peal. I got my Spectre Shirt for $40 and swimtrunks for $30, both were new. Person just didn't list them as Bond items and I got lucky. So from that perspective, it's easier for me to shell out the big bucks on N.Peal.

Not to mention, if you own both brands you know that N.Peal is on another level. I'm not hating on OB by any means, just stating I'm that type of person who can spend $200 on X item and another brand sells X item for $100 and I can call the $100 item a ripoff and the $200 a fair deal. Quality matters. Hence why people like Matt or David will shell out big bucks for a fantastic dress shirt because it'll last 5-10 years with proper care and look dynamite.

N.Peal's pricing is very high but the quality matches the price. Orlebar Brown's pricing doesn't match the quality which is still pretty good but the brand name/Chanel acquisition has shot them upmarket.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong but I will go out on a limb and say that OB's profit margins are significantly higher than N.Peal.

I hear you.

I bought the OB Polo (at a discount, but still...) and no, it’s not remotely of the same quality as comparable knitwear from N.Peal or John Smedley for that matter.

Re: N.Peal 007 Cashmere Collection

As I see it, it's a fantastic collection of 2 halves- one half with pieces that don't scream 007, but, if you know, you know, such as the GE sweater, the DAD sweater, the TLD sweater, the LALD polo and maybe the the TLD long-sleeve polo. Versatile pieces that you could wear, almost under the radar, but would feel pretty Bondian in yourself. And then the other pieces which are far more overtly linked to Bond, like the OHMSS duo, the GF combo and the FYEO, which are a touch retro, but at the same time timeless, if that makes sense. A bit like the DAF Whyte shirt in the Orlebar Brown collection, which I bought and wore over the Summer. All the N Peal collection is exquisitely made, "reassuringly expensive", but you could class them as almost heirloom pieces. I'd say that there is something for everyone, but not everyone can afford these pieces, or would prefer to spend their money on something else. I love Orlebar Brown, but as someone mentioned, not everything makes sense from a cost perspective. Here, with N Peal, you can see exactly where your money goes.
