Topic: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

Hey gang! Wasn't Tommy Bahama going to re-release their Catalina Twill shirt in February? Maybe I missed something along the way but if anybody has any insight on that, I'd like to hear about it. Thanks.

I spoke to them recently again just to confirm.

They said two weeks on the 08th of Feb so anytime now.

Mark said my name three times in front of the mirror and I appear.  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol  ajb007/lol

I contacted Tommy Bahama and was originally given a release date of February 19. When that date passed I again contacted the company. I received this response:

It looks like the rerelease is April 2, 2020. I will note that my emails to Tommy Bahama this year did not mention No Time To Die.

Re: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

Thanks for that Steve  ajb007/martini A little bit longer to wait then.

I wonder if the Catalina in “Continental”, whatever colour that is, has a spot in the film as well as it’s the only other colour, apart from black we’ve seen, from the range that TB are re-releasing early in April?

I wonder if Continental is an error. The last email said black and coconut were the first colors released. I think it's either an error or an upscale renaming of coconut white.

Re: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

I received nearly the same response as Westward_Drift (with a re-release by April 2nd) and asked for the "Continental"-colour, they replied:

"The Continental is off white with a slight cream color to it." I think you are right and its propably the coconut-colour.
They do not make any reservations unfortunaly what makes me a bit nervous because I can't give a guess on how huge the demand still is. Based on their knowlegde of the Bond-connection they will hopefully produce more shirts than the last time

but they said they will passed the reservation-idea along to their Design-Team, whatever that means and I think its just an empty phrase but if I get any new information about this I will tell you immediately

Re: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

It will hopefully be in stores as well. I am about 30 miles from a Tommy Bahama store so I would like to try it on.

Re: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

Well dang!!  Now that they just announced they are postponing the movie release until November, guess we will have to just hope the shirt still gets re-released on April 2nd.  I planned on wearing one to opening night but it may be a bit cold to do that now in November.

Re: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

Do we know approximately what this item will retail for?

Re: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

Just checking on this - its still not available on their website even though April has been and gone. Maybe issues due to the pandemic.

I've contacted them in April, this was their response:

"Thanks for reaching out! This is Sean here at Tommy Bahama Guest Services.

it would be a great help for me if somebody who owns the TB already can provide some measurements, thanks!

Re: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

Thanks for the update Noi appreciate it! In terms of sizing they are US sizing which means you would need to go two sizes down for your normal size I.e their XXL is a L  ajb007/lol

Th advantage of the XXL is that it also doubles up as a tent or a parachute so it’s handy if you are on a spy mission.

Re: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

I know this will probably fall on deaf ears, but here goes:

I own both the 100% silk SA Tommy Bahama Catalina and the non-SA silk blend Tommy Bahama Catalina. I like both of them but....

If you're planning to hang your shirt in the closet or put it on display, go for the SA silk.

If you plan on actually wearing your shirt, consider the silk blend (if you can find it.) The pure silk requires so much babying to keep the softness and the sheen, but this is meant to be a knockabout shirt. Or at least Bond wears it that way in the clips we've seen.

Silk's great for a nice shirt you wear once in a blue moon and clean very, very carefully.

The silk blend is something you can live your life in.

Thanks for this insight. Are they planning on re-releasing both versions? Because I can't see either currently available.

thanks for all the advices, actually I don’t wear silk shirts because I don’t like the shiny look but the TB still looks kind of mat, I think I’ll give the 100% silk version a chance

Re: Tommy Bahama shirt re-release

Nice! Where'd you get it? AFAIK TB isn't making them available until closer to November. Was it eBay?
