I would say if you see something you like, buy it before it’s gone. Maybe they’ll reissue, but maybe they won’t.

But get in there quick Welshy, you'll have time to exchange if you need to before things sell out

Used Ross' OB discount code on the DAF shirt and it worked a treat!

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I was excited for a few of the items from this collection when they were first unveiled...until I saw the markup.

$495 for a long-sleeve polo? $80 extra for the Dr. No Terry polo vs their regular ones?

I like OB but not that much.  ajb007/martini

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

OB runs smallish.  I'm typically between a medium and a large for most shirts (I'm a size 41 in a suit) but I'm firmly a large in OB.  If your normal size juuuuuuust fits you in your preferred brands, definitely consider going up a size for OB.

I have one of the regular terry polos in a light blue but I like the detailing on the Dr. No version much more. You can’t really compare them.

Agree on the LS polo though. It’s not unique enough to justify that price. Same for the safari jacket, although I’m glad they included it.

That little bit of detailing to me does not equal an additional $80 in price.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

It's the "007" tag and the photos of Connery on the website that cost OB that extra $80.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I am a medium in the polos...if that helps....also, if something sells out don't panic too much....they will have another release from the depleted numbers.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Per my store, they are going to play it safe and wait until the 15th to sell any of these.  I think that's the smart thing to do on their part as they don't want to run afoul of their agreed upon sell date with OB.  I'll go in on the 15th or later and try on/get my items.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Really like the "Property of Dr. Julius No, Crab Key" tag on the inside of the towelling robe, it's a nice little touch. Buuuut while I do love OB and their products, I don't think I can justify dropping the price they're wanting for the robe or anything else in the collection.

Really bummed the long sleeve polo is so expensive—it's double the price of the standard Sebastian LS polo and a little more than $200 Aussie more than the Sebastian merino. Despite the prices though they are selling heaps already! Most are down to only a couple of sizes (probably just pre full release stock though).

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I asked the OB customer service...
He told me: We may look to re-stock a few items but yet once they are gone they wont come back.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I’ve had a look at the collection. I’m a big Bond fan obviously and I’ve got over 50 items of OB clothing so I was looking forward to the release. I must say I am disappointed. The only item I would consider are the blue swim shorts but at £195 I won’t be buying.

Yes. Considerably!

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Received my thunderball polo this morning size S. fits pretty well. Slightly annoyed the side tag says 007 on it though. Quality is pretty good

The 007 tag cheapens it quite a bit. It’s what you expect from novelty giftware brands.

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

Pretty much stumped on sizing at the moment as I’m stuck in the middle of nowhere and prob won’t get to London until second week of June

I had the Sebastian Polo in XL and it was very tight.   Presume the towelling material has plenty of stretch maybe?

Also think I might have had to upsize in the SPECTRE shirt

Any OB experts on here regarding sizing on various items (bonus if XL people)

yes I'm normally an S in OB sizes (38" chest and 31" waist) - I think the XS would be rather "fitted"

I got the pre-launch email from OB and ordered the one item I could actually see myself wearing - not sure what to do about the side tag

Cool.  Guess can be removed easily if need be. 

Suprised Orlebar did this but maybe part of licence conditions?

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I’ll just remove the side tag. I agree it shouldn’t be there, but it’s not a deal breaker for me.

Overall I think this is an inspired collection, but it’s amusing to see some of you - who think nothing of throwing down hundreds for an item DC wears for 3 minutes on screen, notwithstanding whether it’s even a stylish piece - giving this release a lukewarm reception.

199

Re: Brown, Orlebar Brown

I've seen this collection in person, and I was very impressed! Perhaps the lukewarm reception here is because it's not about Daniel Craig's clothes? His clothes are by far the most popular Bond clothes at the moment, naturally because he's currently Bond and his clothes are most current. Prices are certainly high, but they don't surprise me. I should have my items waiting for me when I'm home from the office today, and I'll be able to leave better comments then.
