Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

I assumed it was the Moonraker shirt when I saw his Omega teaser on Instagram yesterday and the pieces from the collection. I need that shirt. I think I like Moonraker more than the average person here.

The Octopussy jacket looks good too. A few other pieces I might pick up. Some shirts and shorts. Still no Dalton jackets. But they will get there I bet.

I definitely like Moonraker more than the average person here. It's in my top 5. The Moonraker shirt looks great, but they interpreted it in a much different way than the original shirt. It's more like a polo sweater than a shirt like the original was. OB's interpretation is definitely more accessible.

Agreed. Depending on price, that’s definitely the piece that I am most inclined to purchase. I’ll also consider the Octopussy blouson or one of the camp collar shirts. The prices last time were just too high for me to get more than one or two items, which I’m sure will be the same this time.

Me too. But do I need another blue jacket, let alone another Harrington?

Then there's the current situation, with my town on near-lockdown. No place to go aside from the market.  ajb007/crap

Just hope I don't turn the air conditioner up too much. May need to unpack a certain puffer jacket.  ajb007/biggrin  ajb007/biggrin  ajb007/biggrin

Yeah, digging that MOONRAKER shirt.  I'm getting that one.

I wouldn't go as far as top 5. Connery's first 5 will never be topped for me. Moonraker is probably somewhere in my top 10.

Thinking about it. In my 6 to 10. It would be (not in rank):

6. The Spy Who Loved Me
7. Moonraker
8. Never Say Never Again
9. The Living Daylights

I have room for one more but I'm not sure which. I love that two part of The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker though. They are very exotic adventure type movies.

Did Orlebar Brown ever say if they will bring pieces back into production or if these are a limited production run? I believe they restocked a few items once. But I still haven't decided on that Dr. No robe and I see they only have one size left. I'm really not a robe person. But if I use one, why not one from Dr. No.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

That DR. NO robe is pretty great.  I'm glad I picked it up even if the price point was a tad...excessive.

I know I owned some kind of robe once. I think I used it less than 5 times. I'm more a towel and get dressed or go to sleep person. But this robe would be a one and done, my forever robe if I get it.

I'm kind of surprised that they aren't trying to make some Bond Girl stuff. That's a market they are passing on I guess.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Are there any Vendors that might have the Skyfall Setter size 34" in stock? Perhaps in Europe?

I missed out initially as I wasn't even aware of it's existence and have been scouring the internet since. I'm in the US.

Oh cool.  Yeah, went to their site and saw the update.  All I know is that my store contacted me saying that they're getting the stuff in June.  Time to save my pennies!

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

How does OB stuff tend to fit?  I'm going to give it my best to get that Moonraker zip polo and I want to be ready as far as what size to purchase?  It looks like it would have some stretch to it but I don't want it to be skin tight either, would appreciate some advice from some who have purchased OB before.

95

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

I find the fit to be slim. I have a 43” chest and always take an XL.

It’s funny with the differences in sizes across continents and cultures, I take a L in most American brands, an XL in most European brands, and an XXL(!) if ever I buy a Japanese brand.

96

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Thanks, I was afraid of that, I'm a 46 chest and having to go up to a XX rarely works out well, hoping this might be an exception.

97

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

I agree on them running a tad slim.  I'm a size 41 in a suit, so I vary between a medium and a large in pretty much all brands.  For OB, I go for a large and I'm very satisfied.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Co-signed on them running slim. It can be flatteringly slim, but some of this beachwear you want to be a little cozier.
