Totally different animals....think Roger Moore and palace attack.  No NTTD offerings in the capsule...

Awesome.  Depending on the price point, I'll probably get that one then.

The Octopussy Harrington was the real surprise for me....wasn't expecting to like it so much, but when I got it it turned into one of my favorite pieces!

How's the quality compared to the QOS Harrington and do you have an idea of pricing?

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

At the least the delayed launch gives us time to save up.

Really liking the Roger Moore pieces.

I think its hilarious they did the Dr No polo in white ( to match what appears on the incorrect German lobby cards)   ajb007/rolleyes  ajb007/rolleyes   Yet the pants are blue as in the film...  Very strange decision on their part..   ajb007/insane  ajb007/insane

I'll venture to guess that they're aware that it doesn't look this way in the film, as they say it's "inspired by Bond's classic beach style" rather than mention the film like they do in the other descriptions.

Still its rather odd though - everything else thereabouts the correct colour scheme~

Thought they might have cashed in on a few DC things unless thats to come next time around

I wonder if they didn't do any of the DC items because the brands that made them are still around and may still have relationships with the Bond series.

Of the clothes in this collection, the only brand we know of that they copied that is still around is Turnbull & Asser, who made the pink shirt in YOLT. OB's pink shirt doesn't even copy any of the special details of that shirt.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Yeah maybe too soon for DC items as you say Matt.

Some things off the top of my head....

Madagascar linen trousers (already copied the Diesel tee already but didnt market it as such)
Bahamas arrival white short sleeve shirt with epaulets
PTS Blue Linen shirt sleeve shirt with epaulets
Y3 Harrington / TF Harrington
Casino Budgie Smugglers x 2


Would be cool if Npeal did a Casino PTS Chunky cardigan also!

Some excellent ideas. They could have done the CR PTS linen suit as well.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

But it may be because the Dr No blue polo shirt featured in the last phase of the OB 007 Collection, perhaps.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Currently own: NTTD RT Supply jacket Large, MI:Fallout Boss Coram Bomber jacket 40R, CR: Sunspel Polo Large

Currently want: NTTD Massimo Alba Sloop Suit

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

(FROM OB)

Due to recent developments relating to COVID-19, we have made the decision to close our UK and US stores from 5 pm today (17th March 2020) until further notice. The well-being of our staff, customers, and community is our main priority, which is why we are choosing to take this important step in the interest of public safety.

We are doing everything we can to maintain “business as usual”, and in following government guidelines, everyone in our London and New York offices are now working remotely. OB Team members will be paid as normal, until further notice.

You can still make purchases as often as you like via our website and as always please don’t hesitate to contact our OB Concierge team who will be happy to answer any questions.

Shop our latest collection online

We have taken the decision to postpone any future launches including our James Bond 007 Heritage Collection which was due to go live tomorrow 18th March 2020, as soon as we can update you with new dates we will.

Please everyone, look after yourselves.  We look forward to sharing more sunshine, travel, happiness and good times with you soon.

Together, we can get through this challenging time.

Team OB

Yes mentioned earlier in this thread.   Guess was inevitable really. 

Presume Alba / Connolly / TF all the same

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Smart decision by OB, it's hard to care about a "non-essential" like luxury clothing during a time like this.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Alba, and Connolly and TF all moving forward....at least with their social media and online efforts.  I think theirs will be much more subtle than OB was going to be.  Alba and Connolly, for example, didn't organize tons of new journal ads and articles and TF is going out to customers and prospects with the capsule line and a few influencers.

The above three didn't have major countdowns for example...

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Given the uncertainty (not to mention the cratering global stock exchanges), I don’t think a lot of people are eager to spend much money of whimsical luxury goods. OB made a sensible decision. Hopefully this clears up in 3-4 months and things start to get back to normal.

In the meantime, this is a great opportunity to revisit the 24 Bond films, as well as the various novels!

Connolly also has my (and some of your) money already. Presumably the jacket is already in production and will be shipped. But if not, I'd certainly hope for a refund rather than them holding customer funds against an unknown future.

I've already paid for my Connolly so i am good BUT if they were to postpone production for a while then i'd prefer a refund. Once we know production is going to occur i would then just pay them again.

And I'd wager the pants don't match the electric blue of their first DR NO polo. I love that piece but wish it were a more accurate shade.

A Bahamas white shirt with epaulettes would have been fantastic..  that's one that has been on my list for YEARS now..
