For those looking for the size which is deemed best suited. I am a 44in Chest, and stand at 5'10 I ordered the XL and well pleased with the result.

Anyone ordering from the U.K. It took approximately 3 weeks for it to arrive, plus I then had to pay additional Custom Charges of £26......So please keep that in mind.

Here are comparisons pics. Set up so you can see the labels, shown under camera flash are the Zara, the Enjoying Death commissioned run, the Magnoli and the Royale.

I think Royale and the ED commission both get the collar right, and though the Royale is a bit lighter, I think the tone hews closer to what we see on screen, though it seems like a light dying could knock it closer to the Zara if desired.

Royale next to the original Zara, in indoor incandescent light:

I'll try to take some comparisons using daylight tomorrow.

A closer look at the fabric of the Royale next to the Zara.

The pattern, which I was worried about from photos, looks bang on. This shirt is out of the package, and I expect some laundering will bring the texture closer to the original. Well done, David!

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

Thanks for the reply gentlemen regarding custom charges

It happens everytime i purchased an item for NZ or Australia, the odd thing is I dont get charged anything i buy from the States.

But thanks again, I wil have to ask the forum next time I buy something, how do I get around it!!

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

The Zara and Royale look almost identical in daylight. Interesting how under artificial lighting not so much.

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

I've got the feeling there is more space between the lines of "flowers" on the Royale than on the Zara  ajb007/confused

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

A smidge more it looks, but honestly, unless you have them side by side like in the picture, would you have noticed?

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

Who made the shirt with the Enjoying Death tag?

Also, it seems that only the original Zara has the added darker lining patches. I wonder why nobody bothered to add this detail.

Because the darker, grey, placket was removed on the screen worn shirt.

You can dive into the 56 page thread about the Enjoying Death shirt project if you so choose.

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

Wowzers... that's a lot of death being enjoyed, right there.  You know, whatever the flaws in a ROYALE replica, I appreciate seeing it compared directly with the original.  I'm actually a bit surprised at the 'hue' of the original in these photos, amazing how much lighting impacts what you think you see.  Thanks for sharing, great work.

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

It cannot be overstated - yours is the first one in 8 years that's true to size. A massive feat with this shirt!  ajb007/martini

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

Just ordered mine. Really excited for this one

41

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

Received mine the other day, and as someone that never owned the original nor any of the other replicas, I love this shirt.

6'3", 195, 42" chest - Size "Large" fits perfectly, no adjustments needed. The length is good tucked or untucked if you're around my height. Fabric is really nice, and doesn't seem to have shrunk in the wash (hung dry) but did soften up a little which is nice. Looks like it will last through a lot of wearings.

Well done Dan @ Royale!

That's great news! I was trying to keep you tall guys in the game on this one, so glad to hear you're happy with the fit.  Just an FYI for everyone, they have flown off the shelf, I think most guys who originally showed interest were able to grab one.  As of now I only have a handful of size smalls left and one size XXXL, if those are your sizes...   Thank you all for the valuable feedback and the support, I appreciate it.

Dan,

Based on this response will you be considering another run of the Enjoying Death shirt?

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

Just want to echo the praise.
Shirt fits great, nice details and great pattern.
Sticking with Medium as fit is loose but nowhere near baggy.
Not surprised all popular sizes are gone.
Well dine Dan as ever!

I want to echo 007JBDCMWR's praise for the shirt.

Even though he and I share a jacket size, I have longer arms and torso so the L works well for me. I prefer the looser chest fit in such a casual shirt. All a matter of body type and personal preference.

Well done, indeed, Dan.  ajb007/martini

Looking forward to the revised Madagascar Shirt and the Harringtons.

I hope you tackle the DAD Havana shirt. As AugustWalker owns a screen used shirt perhaps he can help with fabric and color matching.

Glad to hear this shirt was such a success! It looked great in The Bond Experience review.

I'd be interested in that, but unless I'm mistaken the original Brioni shirt's floral patterns are embroidered (is that the right term?), not printed on, making the shirt a much more challenging prospect.

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

The shirt from DAD was embroidered yes, Bond Lifestyle has great close up shots. I'd jump on that in a heart beat if a replica was made

Re: Royale Enjoying Death Review

The pocket flaps are a bit more rounded on the Royale shirt, otherwise, it is an amazing replica!
