    Hey David, wanted to thank you for taking the time to go so detailed with the sizing in your vids. I picked up the rag and bone henley and thankfully I watched your video. I am 5'11 1/2 with a 41 inch chest so there is no way I would even think about getting a size S but after watching your video I realized it was probably the right size. Picked up the last one at my local bloomingdales and it fits me like it was tailored for my body.

    I love Rag & Bone, almost all my jeans/chinos are from the brand amongst other items I love but their sizing is very confusing at times. I guess it's supposed to be a "relaxed look" but that just isn't my style so sizing down was definitely the right option.

    Anyone seeing this, please size accordingly. If you want a fitted/Craig look, you have to size down.

    I would agree with that statement regarding the sizing down. I purchased 2 XL's and decided to wash one of them to see how it reacted to it's first wash and dry. It actually shrunk enough that it fits nicely, not super close but close enough that i can't fit a t-shirt underneath it. I think i may exchange my XL for a large and see what happens when i wash it :D I do wish that Rag and Bone actually provided physical measurements for each size as it would make sizing a little easier especially when it's a more relaxed fit.
    I know where you keep your gun!

    Just shows how bodies can be very similar but still different. I’m 6”, 41” chest, around 80kg/175lbs, athletic build and the medium (usually a large in most things) is a perfect SA fit for me—I doubt I could move in the small!

    David, I just watched your Billie Eilish vlog. All I could think was "Could you tell us more about the No Time To Die crew jacket you're wearing?"

    David - great review of the dress, thanks to your wife for reviewing it. Most sizes are currently out of stock on their site. Great job

    Yes great video David, my wife decided against the dress, pretty much in agreement with Danielle’s own concise opinion, despite my offers to buy it for her! Time to promote Danielle full time from behind the camera I think, not least to save me some money!

    LOL....oh, I think its safe to say Danielle appearing will not be a regular thing....and she isn't behind the camera much any more except for event filming....

    The Best and the Worst of James Bond Video Games Part 1

    We journey back through time to revisit the beginning of James Bond video games and discuss how they have evolved over time. Along the way we discuss the good, the bad, and the very ugly of these digital 007 outings! Calvin Dyson joins me in this pix-elated adventure!

    Hi David. Watching your Instagram stories I've seen what it looks like to be some pants from Massimo Alba. Have you received the duster coat too? I can't wait to see a complete review of this very interesting piece! :D

    Most enjoyable video David, and I eagerly look forward to part 2. You and Calvin have a good rapport with each other, and the subject is quite fascinating. The only one of the games discussed in this video that I actually have any experience of is The Duel - years ago I played a PC port of this game. It didn't grab my attention though. I guess the reason is that like you guys mentioned in the video, these old games often don't have a particularly Bondian feel to them.

    It may seem shocking to many that I, as a Bond fan growing up in the 90s, didn't even know that the Goldeneye N64 game existed until many years after it was released. I think that the N64 console was not very well known in South Africa, and therefore the game probably wasn't as well known here either. In fact, until the PlayStation came out here, the only video games that I can remember seeing in SA were knock off versions of the Nintendo Entertainment System which were very common here, and as far as I know pretty much all of the game cartridges that were sold in local shops here were pirated copies. So I grew up in a bit of a black hole as far as video games were concerned. I did get to play a number of the Brosnan era games though, so I look forward to hearing your discussion of those games.

    Size Matters: NTTD Garage Jacket Part 2

    In this part 2 discussion of the RgT Garage jacket from No Time To Die, we discuss fit as it relates to screen accuracy and then recreate some of the tailoring that may have occurred to achieve the Bond Look!

    Looking forward to seeing part two of your look at James Bond video games. I have been a gamer for many years, and without a doubt the Nintendo 64 is one of my all time favorite consoles. I fondly remember playing Goldeneye many times during my youth(the multiple matches were tons of fun), I loved the array of weapons and gadgets present in the game. I played it again recently and I was surprised that I still remembered what to do during the single player levels. To me it is one video game that will never get old.

    I have also played many Gameboy & Nintendo DS games in my time and I must say that out of the Bond related titles, James Bond 007 for the Gameboy, Nightfire for Gameboy Advance, Goldeneye 2010 and Bloodstone for the DS are the best in my humble opinion. The World Is Not Enough for Gameboy Color, is defiantly one of the worst. Without the cheats, it is near impossible to get past most of the levels and the controls are pretty bad, especially the last level on the submarine. The graphics of the game are also really bad apart from the cut scenes.

    I really enjoyed that David. I think the tailored large looks much better on you. You could have your tailor take up the hem if you wanted to, In any case now you have an extra jacket if you need to layer under it.

    I agree, I think the tailored large looks better and definitely fits more like Craig's appears to.

    I prefer the medium on you. The large is maybe a tad long but still looks great. Lovely to be able to choose between two options -{
    Yes. Considerably!

    Happy Birthday DZ 21 again, again :))

    Loved the RGT Part 2, I went with Med and agree that size looked great on you. Tailored Large turned out OK (Steve is the man) as sometimes it’s hard to get it just right with a nip and tuck.

    Keep up the great work and have a lovely day - enjoy your day!

    Cheers :007)

    Thank you David for this insightful video.
    What a good idea to compare the medium with a tailored Large.
    This is so helpful.
    You are amazing!!!

    I prefer the Medium on you. -{

    Hi David,

    Thanks for the video and good to see the jumper on you.

    Did you settle on a preferred size in the end?
    Yes but my martini's still dry.

    Hi David, many thanks for video. Very helpful on sizing and also loved the way you adapted it for everyday look. The pairing with the grey trousers and shoes looked great and gives me confidence this sweater can be pulled off anywhere. The size small looked great by the way.
    I'm sorry......that last hand...nearly killed me

    David, thank you for another informative and entertaining vlog.

    Could you please measure and post the shoulder and sleeve measurements of the size M at the next opportunity.
    Taking one size bigger from your size S should be okay for me, but I'm a little unsure because the sleeves look so damn short on this sweater.
