Re: Ocean Club Shirt

I too am trying to find this shirt, I have found that a square hem long sleeve dress shirt is a bit hard to find, ANYBODY, MANTIS???

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

You could always purchase a black, plain back, no pocket shirt with black buttons and have the bottom hemmed square. A good tailor could easily do this for around $10-15. Would everone say that the shirt appears to be black cotton?

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

The shirt does have a pocket and as shocking as this may be the shirt was made of polyester (shudders)...

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

Yes, the shirt was a last minute replacement by the wardrobe group and was an off the shelf shirt.  Out of respect to the individual that provided this information I would like to ask him if I can publicly post the maker etc...

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

I knew it wasn't linen... it looks nicer than polyester

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

Polyester chafes your nipples, sartorial badness, satanistic sartorialism, sartorial sadism... it's just SO wrong......

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

Even so, I'm sure we would all like to know who made it.....

12

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

Hell, I'd buy one anyway.

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

OK, for what it is worth:

Alfani 100% polyester shirt, breast pocket, Made in Vietnam/ WPL 8046

Yes, yes.....I was as shocked as all of you.  I assure you the shirt does NOT look like polyester...it looks like a combed cotton/velvet in real life.  The shirt is cut square along the bottom with a notch at left and right hip.  If you look at BluRay or even good pics of it you can see the pocket....

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

Mantis, how in the hell do you find out about these things? Its absolutely amazing. I cant believe that they had Bond wearing Alfani, although I strangely still want the shirt! Anyone have a source? While we are racking your brain Mantis, any clue as to the source of the whiskey decanter and glasses that Bond uses in the hotel room? They are very classic.

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

I'd also like to get ahold of one, if possible.

So my question is: What colour is it?  Is it black or navy? Nice work Mantis!

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

The WP number is unfortunetley a number that gets added to ALL Alfani garmets in the US.

I suggest some of you get down to a local Macys and see if you can find any of them. 

Buy as many as you can becuse everyonr here will want one to go with their Ted Baker pants

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

Looks like a nice shirt, not 'exactly' the same but would certainly go well with the pants. 

I live in FL to and as long as your not standing in the sun all day you can get away with long sleeve shirts, if Bonda can do it in teh bahamas....

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

Sruzgar, where in FL are you at? Tampa here. Bahamas has a better/cooler trade wind that we do. ajb007/smile

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

Re: Ocean Club Shirt

How about this Alfani shirt, long sleeve, silk, with a modest pocket. Color in oxford black looks very close to what he wore on the Bahamas Casino and the price is sweet. Here is the URL.

It looks to me a match to me but will need to see in person to know for sure. Thoughts?
