for those who are convinced of the unlined Barbour Graham Jacket, Ruedecan has two sizes left (sold out everywhere else):

on sale: $314 + 10% on your first order if you register, shipping worldwide, looks like a good deal, I have no expierence with that shop but they had all sizes in stock yesterday <_<

One thing worth keeping in mind is that Barbour has already experienced the “Bond effect” with Skyfall. They know how to capitalize on fan interest. If a jacket of theirs appears in the movie, we can rest assured that they will reissue it, perhaps even in a more SA version as they did with the Commander.

I had the same thought, but at the end of the day, you never REALLY know. There are a lot of factors, especially who's running things. There have been a lot of companies that have said they were going to reissue items if the interest was there, but they never did, (at least not yet or when they said they would) J. Crew, Y-3, Tommy Bahama, Tom Ford, all these companies still have yet to produce a reissue of specific items. Barbour is not officially licensed like Orlebar Brown or N. Peal. Could they reissue it? Certainly. Will they? Only time will tell.

Ok - N.Peals are on their way back to them, and my budget alternative just arrived ... $32 on Amazon Goodthreads. I’m much happier with this - normal neck, normal sized patches, nice quality, good fit, oh and $400 cheaper!

How's the size on these? I wanted to buy one but then chickened out because people said the sizing was off.

It’s just large/long ... so I’m usually a medium, and took a small - no big deal if you’re not usually a small I guess!

I'm usually a small or xsmall depending of the fit I want. I guess that's my problem right there on this one.

Sorry for the double post - something went wrong with the first one -
Definitely size down

Yes, I'm usually a "L" and took a "M" in that same exact model but....I could have taken a "S" because after washing it did became larger  ajb007/amazed

At risk of poking the wooly-pully wearing bear, has there been any word from N Peal regarding the shoulder patches and other contentious points?

Yes but my martini's still dry.

call me cynical but I cannot see Npeal will be able to do anything as they will have produced shed loads of these jumpers so to redo them wouldn't be cost effective

Yeah I had thought that might be the case. Perhaps I'll have to wait to see if Reiss, Massimo Dutti or Mango do their own "interpretation" as they have with previous film pieces.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

There will be no shortage of pieces out there "inspired" by the N.Peal. The diamond neck shape that strikes a lot of people as odd now will look fashionable in 8 months after the movie is out and other designers have jumped on the bandwagon.

Look what happened to that Solden blouson. That knitwear and insulated design was nowhere before Spectre. I can say that because I — and many others here — searched high and low for alternatives. (You can read the old threads archived on AJB.) I ended up with the Moncler that "inspired" the Tom Ford and then the Royale. I predict the same thing will happen here with the N.Peal, given its prominence in the marketing of NTTD, but of course, one never knows.

In the meantime I had hoped to see some images here of the large, extra large, and extra extra large. Surely some of us must have received them!

Couldn't agree more. I believe this style will be mirrored in upcoming collections by the fast fashion folks.  I posted images of the N Peal sweater in a size large on my instagram @bondspired.   Large is usually the size I take and I am pleased with the fit. I really like the sweater for what its worth.

As echoed above.  Anybody have a XL Npeal?

Thank you but Mr. Porter confirms the inseam-length of 76-77cm:

I take your point Noi - but don’t you think it’s strange that the inseam for the 31-34” waists are all shorter than for the 28 and 30” waists?? Every other measure goes up. Anyhow...

I’ll let people know exactly what the score is when they arrive. In the meantime, some clarification around whether they are the right trousers or not would be great. Perhaps you can help with that?

Yes. Considerably.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

My N.Peal NTTD in size large arrived this morning. I had hoped to report otherwise, but I won't be keeping it.

https://i.postimg.cc/WhyMGWjb/IMG-2026.jpg

I don't think the shoulder patches are as much of an issue in this size (although I am sure they will work better on the XL and XXL). The reason I am returning the sweater has to do with the shoulders themselves. There is a hem along the shoulder line covered by the patches that, in my case, causes an unnatural ridge to form. Perhaps it would soften with use, but I don't spend this kind of money lightly and only buy things that are perfect out of the box. The fit otherwise seems pretty good so I can't imagine sizing up. For those interested, I have 19" shoulders in suits and a 43" chest. I usually take a 52 or 54 depending on the designer.

Other observations:

Someone above mentioned the neck hole being surprisingly small. It was for me as well.

Also, the sweater is heavier than expected (heavier than the LL Bean if you have that as a comparison).

The merino/cashmere mix is ultra soft however. Really nice to the touch.

I think the sweater will actually work better for most wearers with a color other than white or off-white beneath—unless you are going the full Bond by wearing braces. Navy, charcoal, or heather grey don't draw as much attention to the diamond neck in my quick experimenting.

I was rooting for this one. I wanted to love it.

New challenge for all the detectives out there. I'm not sure if this belongs here, but it seemed fitting...
Can anyone ID the wallet that can be seen in the Daniel Craig vs James Bond ad for Heineken? Second 0:40 of the ad, in case the image doesn't appear. Sorry new at this.

Re: No Time To Die wardrobe: possible spoilers

I feel sorry for N. Peal's returns department right now. I can imagine the conversations in there: "Well, another one came back, what is that? 42 now?" They definitely did this to themselves though.

Even if they plan on doing a second more screen accurate batch, I feel like it's going to take a very long time for them to sell through their current inventory. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they end up having to slash the price for this current version and simply discontinue it. What a bust.

If AJB was their core audience, this would be the case. Lucky for them it isn't. Most people who are buying this sweater are not like those who visit this forum.

Cannot be 100% sure but it looks VERY similar to my Massimo Dutti card wallet (see below).

My first thought was Paul Smith because of the signature.  This one in the picture has different stitching and fewer number of card slots, but you get what I mean
