Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Just blitzed them! Great reviews. Damn! What's a man to do? They all look great. I thought that I had grabbed the pick of the bunch in the DAF shirt, but now I'm screwed as I want them all!

Blair have you seen my IG reviews?  I discuss the TB Polo, but in short love it.  Mediums in everything EXCEPT the robe, which I took a small and glad of it...chunky thing.

How are you finding the Thunderball polo, David, for hand, fit and feel? I'm up in London on the 31st, but all will have been snapped up by that time, I expect. And what size was the robe?

Can you swim?

Anybody tried on the Espadrilles yet???

I'm curious on those as well.  I'm a size 10.5US/43Eur (depending on the manufacturer) and I'm curious how OB shoes run.  I've considered the Larsons before but never pulled the trigger on them.  I'm in Italy and Greece this summer and it'd be fun to have the full TB outfit (red shirt, blue swim trunks, and the shoes) on the beach just to see if anyone recognizes the outfit.

I’m a uk 10 in Crockett & Jones ‘ church’s etc but the espadrilles in uk 10 were too small I just exchanged for a uk11 and they are still snug

By the way' the name is  "James St. John smythe"  I'm English

They should be snug. Espadrilles stretch.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Orlebar Brown's site is now saying that they expect a restock (of the DAF shirt, but presumably other pieces that run out, too) in July

Odd that the Thunderball polo seems to be omitted from Mr Porter for whatever reason. I much prefer the service and free shipping and returns on Mr Porter so prefer to buy through them

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Glad to see you guys are coming around on that long sleeve polo.  The price is rather steep but I'm telling ya, you put that thing on and you'll have a hard time not smiling.

Thanks for this suggestion, Suit. Ordered the View to a Kill jacket on Tuesday and it arrived in Los Angeles via DHL on Friday morning. $325 all in with the exchange rate!

Welcome back, B. How's the Layer Cake jacket?

What size AVTAK jacket did you get, since you're also a 52?

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I just came across this long sleeve navy merino wool polo.. kinda similar to the OB.
For those interested i thought I’d share:

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

So the Thunderball Polo and Carmine shirt have arrived and they are both beautiful in design - and feel really great when you put them on. Having waivered over the cost, I’m very pleased I pushed the button and bought them.

Just one thing to note...sizing! Like others have said, pay close attention to the size guide. I am a medium (6’2, 40 chest, 32 waist) in pretty much everything from everywhere. Went Large on both of these and they are still very ‘fitted’. I’m good with that, but if I was in a shop I would have probably tried an X-Large as well - particularly for the Polo.

Yes. Considerably.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Selfridges in london still have most of the pieces in store (including safari jacket).  The dressing gown label only said 007 on not property of dr no.  Wasn’t hugely impressed as it was basically the same as any old blue dressing gown to be honest

Thanks! Nice to be back. The layer cake jacket finally got some use this past year with work taking me to some cooler climates than Southern California. That 52 dunhill jacket was tailored pretty significantly to fit me (41” chest, 31” waist), but the tailor did an incredible job. He specializes in leather jackets and it wasn’t cheap. I’m sure my infant son will someday understand that he doesn’t have a college fund because daddy wanted to dress like Daniel Craig in a half-forgotten crime thriller!

I got the AVTAK jacket in medium and fits great!

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Love that AVTAK jacket.  I'm getting a ton of use from it.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I was slow on the draw and missed out on the Thunderball polo, it is now sold out in medium on the OB site.  Does anyone know if there will be more in stock at some point?  I know it was advertised as a limited run...

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

It's in stock here: https://gabucci.se/en/product/5035/thun … -shirt-007

Try calling the OB stores. Some may still have them.

Also, keep checking the site every morning. Some sizes keep resurfacing in limited quantities. My best guess is that they are returns or exchanges.  I just grabbed the TB swim shorts yesterday in my size after they were sold out for a while.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

The UK OB site did say that they would be restocking the DAF shirt in July. Whether or not that's true across the range I can't say. But as others have noted, this has been a roaring success for OB and their new owners, who presumably would like to see a return for their investment. So fingers-crossed there may be some more restocking over the summer.

Can you swim?

374

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Only 32Ks worth of stock left on OB UK website  ajb007/lol    Think it was well over 200k when I chucked everything in my cart lol

Thats mainly Dr No polo and TB Pink shorts  ajb007/martini

Another week and think thats all that will remain of the collection until any restock  ajb007/martini    However the Dr No shirt has been selling a lot recently so I think the Pink shorts will be the main item left and seems they produced loads!!!

Any more opinions on the Espadrilles sizing from other members yet to comment?   Mine have arrived at home but im on the other side of the world at the moment so cant try.  Have a feeling I should of ordered a 12 instead of my CJ 11
