Topic: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

What's the best, currently available budget alternatives you guys have found for the N.Peal mock turtleneck? I've found a few, but they always seem only available in black or navy. What have you found???

Kind regards,
Magnoli

I haven't tried this brand personally, but this definitely fits the bill for a budget alternative, and with a 365-day return policy, it seems hard to beat -

Bond44, that one looks great... but they've only got the XL in charcoal! ajb007/frown

The other thing is the fit... we want a nice slim fit. The Sierra Trading Post one looks too baggy.

Oh well, the quest continues...

Bond44, looks good. Too bad shipping to the US is so high (25GBP). Good thing I'm not a sweater person.

This might be my winter wear of choice. Too warm now, and wearing shirts anyway.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Since there doesn't seem to be anything to fit the bill, I may see if we can do a run of less-expensive alternatives ourselves...

Charles Tyrwhitt has a nice looking roll neck... While not a mock, per se, it looks like a nice approximation. And slim fit.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Stopped by my favorite shop UNIQLO today. A few viable alternatives for the Spectre N peal sweaters:

100% Cashmere rollneck - AUD$110

http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/kk228/cmdr_bong/20150605_152735_zpspl0l6b5o.jpg
Extra fine Merino wool rollneck - AUD$50

I usually wear a size Medium, and I sized down to Smalls to achieve the fitted looks. Still very very comfortable.

They also carry a crew neck Cashmere sweater in Turquoise (AUD$110). An excellent alternative to the Skyfall N Peal lodge sweater.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

My idea right now is to make a slightly more "shirt" alternative... something that will have the same look, but you can just throw into the wash and now worry about ruining. I'll keep you all posted...

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Tony, if you decide to move forward, can I offer the suggestion of offering these in standard sizing (i.e. - S, M, L,...) instead of your usual MTM?  Some may want to size down to get a more fitted look vs. some who may want a more relaxed fit.  This seems hard to estimate if using your measurement form.  Personally, I've had some bad luck ordering from your site as the items I've purchased (two Quantum Jackets and a Quantum Cardigan) have not fit well at all, despite using spot-on measurements from my tailor and actual TF garments.  The quality and details are superb, but I'm still not sure where things went wrong with the sizing.

Kind regards,
Craig

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

In a few months as fall clothes hit stores I think budget alternatives will be plenty. Most clothing stores are going to carry mocks. Heck, I had one in charcoal that I forgot I even had that I didn't wear because I thought they were out of fashion  ajb007/lol

That's the plan. If we go forward with this, they'll be available in S, M, L and XL, just like our Henleys.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Looking for mock turtleneck alternatives in the stores will likely produce decently accurate results, but I would be more than interested in getting a true replica from you Indy, especially if the price is similar to the Henley's. Love the idea of making it like a shirt in standard sizes. Personal, I live in Florida, so i would love to see the sweater available in cotton. Keep me updated because im willing to put in an order before they are ready so I can get the first batch.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Indy, I'm not really a sweater person, and California has been too hot the last few years for wool, so a cotton "shirt" version would interest me as well.

cmdr_bong, the Uniqlo sweaters aren't too bad. Pity their stuff has never fit me well. Off topic, but would you know if the tailor who made your MI:3 suede jacket replica a few years back is still around?

Not sure if that last question was directed at me, but we are working on the Spectre Suede Jacket right now...

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Ohhhhh. The Jacket too. Im sure your still sourcing and number crunching, but keep me updated. I'm very interested in the price you can get on these two items.

Indy, back around 2010 on filmjackets.com both cmdr_bong and Mantis mentioned having an MI3 jackets made. Mantis's jacket was quite inexpensive. I think it was an eBay tailor.

I have had 2 makers attempt the MI3 jacket. The first one is just a seller on ebay based in India. I was very new with the whole customer tailoring game back then, so looking back now I wouldn't recommend using him. His work is passable at best. The second is another ebay seller based in the UK, but the manufacturing is in Pakistan. His work was sublime, but unfortunately he is incommunicado of late. The Suede jacket he did for me was very high quality. In fact, now that I had acquired a genuine Belstaff Ethan blouson, I, along with most pundit from filmjackets.com, would agree that the replica is more authentic to the screen-worn version than the Belstaff. I may send him an email to see if he would respond, as I'm sure he can knock a replica of the JV out of the park.

Please do. I'd be interested to see what he could do, if interested. Thanks.

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

Indy, any updates on the "Westminster Mock Neck"? (Have to call it something, right?)

Re: Magnoli Spectre Mock Turtleneck FINISHED!

I bought one of these in the HoF sale for £25:

Also noticed that John Smedley do a very similar mock turtle neck in Merino wool £60 cheaper than the N Peal:

Sounds good. I hope you also consider the blue version as well.
