Topic: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Coming in March 2020, according to the company’s social media channels.

I’m sure there will be plenty of excitement about this, but the novelty of the recent Bond clothing licensing bonanza wore off for me with the N Peal collection. Between that and the original OB stuff, I’m not sure how much is left? I guess we’ll find out soon.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

I'm sure we're going to see more of the movie poster shorts. There's more classic Thunderball outfits they can recreate, and there's plenty of Roger Moore stuff they could replicate.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

We'll probably get some NTTD merchandise as well.

Also, I betcha we get this outfit:

also, this shirt already looks like an OB shirt.  Put '007' on it and add $50 to the price and it'll fit nicely into the collection.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

I missed out on the Skyfall Setters and would be really excited for another release. I doubt it'll happen though.

Currently own: NTTD RT Supply jacket Large, MI:Fallout Boss Coram Bomber jacket 40R, CR: Sunspel Polo Large

Currently want: NTTD Massimo Alba Sloop Suit

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

I’m eager to see what they come out with. I found that last year I needed to be very selective in my purchases given the prices that OB charges, but I ended up with a couple of pieces unlike anything else I wear.  I can’t imagine parting with them.

The AVTAK track jacket is an absolute staple of my wardrobe.  Same with the TB long sleeve polo.  The other items that I bought are pretty much just sitting in my closet, unfortunately.  If I could go back in time, I'd have told myself to pass on a few of them.  Alas.

I honestly don't need any more clothes.  Neither does my wife.  To that end, we've both pretty much committed to not buying ANY clothing this year unless it's to replace an essential item.  If something comes out of this new release that is exceptional, I'll be able to talk my wife into making an exception as she likes OB as a brand and likes how the clothing fits on me, but I'm not going to go bonkers like I did a year ago.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

I am predicting a pink linen shirt from YOLT, powder blue leisure suit from LALT (This years publicity grabber like the onesie last year), black half zip shirt from MR, shirting dressing gown from Octopussy....

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

I think they're going to go with more of the unusual clothes. It got them a lot of attention, and people loved the clothes.

Cheverian, the black half zip shirt from MR is something I'm hoping to see too. It sounds like people want to see the powder blue leisure suit, and the blue trousers would be great for anyone who got the DN polo before.

I'm wondering if they will replicate any of Roger's short-sleeve jersey knit shirts from FYEO? Frank Foster won't appreciate that, but it's perfectly legal to copy the shirts they made.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Ok, then...my predictions:

from above,
OHMSS: white suit
FYEO: blue t-shirt

others:
TWINE: cream suit and blue button down shirt
https://www.apetogentleman.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/james-bond-linen-suit.jpg
OHMSS: sweater combo.  Yes, I know we got this from N.Peal but I could see getting an OB version as well.

Beyond those, I'm not sure.  Maybe Lazenby's kilt?

Y3 or TF style Harrington for Craig era items?

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

I do hope they go with some of the unconventional items again as they did last time. The DAF safari shirt is one of my favorite items that I own. I would be interested in the Thunderball striped shirt, or a proper (i.e., not cashmere) version of Lazenby’s golf jacket, which could actually be used for golf!

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

How about the blue rugby shirt from Casino Royale?

I'd love to see Connery's nailhead dressing gown in Goldfinger, or an OB take on the brown Nehru jacket worn by Connery in Dr No.

How about really mixing it up and going to the dark side, with a few villain pieces? Goldfinger's Miami pool outfit?

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

They could definitely do a six-piece villain line. Goldfinger in Miami, Red Grant's towel ( ajb007/lol )

I don't see OB making suits, but based on the Mason & Sons stuff from just prior to OB's launch, I'd expect a seersucker camp shirt, a navy camp shirt, white camp shirt etc.

I'd have called it a reach a year ago, but it wouldn't surprise me to see a Leiter Line:

Fingers crossed they make a DAD Cuban Brioni shirt, too.

Nicely done - and wow, two TB shirts that have already been produced by Mason & Sons at what's surely a more affordable price point - https://us.masonandsons.com/collections … descending

Mason did their striped and gingham shirts in seersucker, not a regular cotton like the original. The Mason shirts feel extremely cool in hot weather and don't really wrinkle, so they're excellent alternatives.

Wow, and I was just about to concur with Halfmonk Halfhitman that an swimsuit company making a linen suit seemed highly unlikely! I wonder if they read these forums, or if you guys are just prophetic, since both the linen suit and seersucker shirts were right on the money... ajb007/wink

Buying a suit from OB at what is sure to be an inflated price for a fused, RTW item is a nonstarter for me. I’m shocked they would go that route.

There’s already a great and affordable alternative available for this shirt.
I can recommend it.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

The suit will not be entirely linen, but rather a cotton/linen blend.  Those of you that are Sean and Roger fans will be very happy with the collection.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

So yeah, I'm guessing the FYEO blue t-shirt that I noted up above is definitely in there.  I wonder if some of the more 70s looking outfits will make the cut.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

What really would be a treat are Roger Moore‘s suede and leather jacket from AVTAK.

The name is Walker by the way.

Re: New Orlebar Brown Bond Collection

Getting closer to this now. Anyone know if OB is doing a big pre-launch event for social media influencers like the last time? I’m trying to decide how excited I need to be for this.  ajb007/lol
