I suspect a 46 would fit me better. I will have to get my 48 tailored if I can't find a 46.....

Ok so the RGT jacket woes continue - it’s fast becoming more of a ReGreT jacket: I paid the customs charges Wednesday with delivery specified for yesterday, waited in but...nothing.

I called to query today, it’s apparently lost somewhere at my local post depot and “should have gone on the van” for delivery but they can’t locate it, let alone tell me when it may be delivered...

I was asked if it’s a large package (?) I imagine not, but anyone who got one from Stag care to chime in with a response to this? Thanks

There's an article in The New York Times today about the Massimo Alba's work in No Time to Die:

I gave the reporter a quote that finishes the article.

Crap - sorry to hear that

Mine came in a smallish box from Stag.   Think of a pair of jeans or shirt folded and plonked in a box kind of things

Man i'm sorry to hear that it's taking so long for the jacket to get to you and i hope it's ultimately worth it. My packaging was a brown shipping bag with the jackets each sealed in a thicker plastic bag.

So i see that according to the jamesbondlifestyle.com site the Barton Perreira sunglasses will not be coming out at the end January and instead they will be shipping this April. I wonder if all my complaining about the 007 logo made them decided to delay the release  ajb007/lol ajb007/biggrin ajb007/shifty

Nice publicity for you, Matt! And a good quote.

I've been saying for a long time that Massimo Alba's corduroy will take off and that people who balked at the Sloop suit and the Winch pants will reach for their wallets. Bond is such an unbelievable trendsetter, even when the trends he sets are lamentable. That's not the case here. The cords MA uses aren't anyone's idea of "corduroy." It's as if he created a new summer suiting material.

The sizes ordered are interesting. You have to think the 54 was for the stuntman wearing the harness for the bridge jump (and whatever other safety stuff was needed underneath).

Isn't DC built like a tank though?  Would be easier to take a larger size in a little for running/action etc regardless of the wearer.

Could be! But I bought the 54 and I'm a 43-44" chest, and it's right on the border of being too big for me. Part of that is the style. It's a loose fit.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

The Length from the Jacket looks pretty long on DC compared to the Suit I received from MA. I took my normal Size and its tailored definitly shorter than the one on Craig. I can imagine that they ordered oversizes and tailored them to a more fittet look. I thought the same on the RGT Jacket, its hard to see because hes in the shadow when he uncovers the car in the trailer but the whole jacket/sleeve length seems to fit long on him, but thats pure speculation.

regarding the Joe release:
On PB is still written end January: https://bartonperreira.com/products/joe-sun

I'm sorry to ask that in this thread but does anybody know if its possible to pay by PayPal at Royale Filmwear? Thank you

We will have to see regarding the Joe as well as the other Barton Perreira sunglasses. You can pay via PayPal when ordering from Royale Filmwear.


Update: I remember last year that Dan is no longer taking PayPal payments as there was an issue with eBay and PayPal. My apologies for anyone i may have confused ajb007/crap

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

They must have tailored the hell out of some of them! I have to say the Sloop suit was a strange fit on me and I haven't kept it as a result. I'll need to get the Winch trousers tailored too but am hopeful they'll look great once done.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

Good news concerning the TOM FORD NTTD clothes:

I was talking to the TF boutiques in London and Munich. Both confirmed that the clothes worn in NTTD will all be available in spring. They also mentioned that not every shop will get all items. So the grey jeans will come back in stock... TF Munich confirmed the jeans to be the straight fit model. Makes total sense to me looking at the current known NTTD outfits and sizes. Everything is a looser fit: trousers, shirts, jackets. Gone are the skin tight DC clothes...

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

Mine came today Smithers after ordering online on the 6 December  ajb007/confused and I went through the same routine, ParcelForce and USPS were dreadful, STAG were kinda OK, but they said they could track the parcel and Parcelforce said they couldn't track it and STAG were the only ones and round and round. Customs charges £102. I regularly order online from the US and this was by far the worst fiasco. Christmas didnt help but still. Should have ordered from the UK 100%. Ended up paying £20 more for a 7 week longer wait.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

I picked up a beauty of an RGT Supply jacket in denim hoping it would satisfy the itch....it didn't  ajb007/lol

For those that already have the wax canvas version, are you able to cuff the sleeves or are they too rigid for that?

Yes. Considerably!

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

feel for you buddy , had the same fiasco too yesterday and today , got well annoyed and demanded delivery.
Got it finally at 6.30pm tonight.
I must admit well worth the wait but not the angro and extortionate custom fees.
Love the jacket and looks cool all outfitted up according to the trailer as best I can.
Gonna get a lot of wear in the summer  ajb007/bond
Hope you get it sorted

How does everyone feel about this? We've become so accustomed to super slim-fit Bond that its a bit jarring to see him wearing mostly regular size clothing now.

Wear it, wear it, wear it....

When you go out - wear it.

When you’re sitting in the house - wear it.

When you’re doing anything - wear it! :-)

Honestly, I love this jacket! It’s one of the few ‘Bond’ clothing items that, for a very reasonable price, encourages you to wear it and love it - as opposed to the ‘buy them and protect them’ brands.

The more you expose it to normal life, the more it will reward you.

Be bold and brave - this jacket demands it!

(The collar is sitting lovely and the feel and colour of the jacket is breaking in beautifully!)

Not to sound like a negative Nancy, but whatever you hear from Tom Ford, you have to take with a grain of salt. I got a confirmation from them that the Bond costume dept. purchased both the straight fit and the tapered fit or "slim fit" of the grey jeans. The next time I tried to get in touch with that person, they informed me that they got in trouble for saying too much. Not sure why that would matter (this was back in June) They also told me that the jeans would be released again in Oct. but never were. Then they decided to increase the price of them $200 on what little stock they had left, which after taxes, customs, and shipping puts them over $1,000. Jeans mind you, 1 pair. Hopefully it pans out in the end, but don't get your hopes up too high.
