Managed to finally scoop myself a good Beacon sports jacket alternative, the Lutz model from Barbour.

Cut in a similar fashion to the original Skyfall jacket, it has a slightly heavier weight cotton (8oz instead of 6oz) a nice fit and the patina it develops is beautiful. I even removed the throat belt and buckle for a cleaner, skyfall-esque appearance.

I have just received mine and extremely impressed with the detail, and for £80 an absolute bargain!

Sizes run slightly large; I'm a 40inch chest and ordered the 38inch medium after trial and error.

Thanks for the information! Looks great.

Would you say it's quite warm? Good as a midlayer?

Great choice. I was wearing my one today. It’s a great jacket.

Yes. Considerably!

I've been wearing mine today, over a T-shirt. It's pretty warm, like a fleece, as a midlayer... but no good as an outer layer when it gets really cold.

I have a quilted Lutz in navy and I love it. Might consider picking up the cotton version as well.

As per the above comment, it is a good fleece like layer. It's wool blend, coupled with a nice base layer, I.e. turtleneck (as per Spectre) would ensure you remain warm from cold weather.

Goldfinger Slazenger Burgandy Golf Jumper is available with an (in effect) permanent 30% discount. 

https://www.slazengerheritage.com/produ … -burgundy/

Use James Bond Lifestyle's 10% off code: JBLSH10

You can also use the Slazenger Heritage 20% off discount code: slzfb20   

Both codes stack for the large and permanent discount. Slazenger heritage does not do the Black Friday or Boxing Day/January sale, so I would advise to buy it now using the 30% off.

Note: The item ships from Spain.

Re: Budget Bond Collectors Resource

Ok so not exactly screen accurate, but my choice of an alternative for the Crockett and Jones Molton boots.

https://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/st … 0665288_-1

Ok they aren't roughout or even suede and the welt is natural in colour and not black.

However they have a nice dark colour, are Goodyear Welted and have a waxed finish which is great for this time of year.

I can report that they are great quality for this price, I plan to dye the welts on mine to black.

For some reason the link won't work properly, the boots are called 'Technic Fox Brown Leather'

I have previously tried to link to the Debenhams website on here and it didn't work for me either.
