    Good review, great video as always! Thank you -{

    Can I please ask is it the Morton or the Morton II Sky Shirt?

    I think it had to do with the double darting, back and front. Though there certainly could be an argument for a size up.

    Nice video! It's odd to see a mens shirt with darts in the front. There usually only on women's shirts, for obvious reasons. I agree with Westward_Drift that it looks too small. Unstitching the front darts might help a little, and it would turn it into a proper mens shirt ;)

    I decided to go with the Malone since it looked less sheer than the Morton. And yes, I did have to size up. Orlebar makes it easy to do exchanges fortunately.

    George Clooney has worn shirts with darting on the front as well as the back in some of his Omega shoots. I think it gives a sharper silhouette. It helps if you have the build too I guess...

    David, great work as always. Would you be able put together a video going through your up to date Spectre collection. There are some items on that table I would like a closer look at.

    You're the man. I'm looking forward to it!

    As a side question. Do you workout at home or in a gym? I say your most recent ab workout was at home.

    Top notch vlog as-per usual, Mantis! I have the Snowdons and was wondering if it was the 50 or 52mm size?
    I'm going to go for the Henrys so it's an idea for size.

    Cheers -{

    Love it David! I jumped the gun as well and have the wrong color snowdon's :(

    Great video as usual David. -{

    I actually prefer the look of the black Snowdons over the Havana. If you're selling them advertise them as Harvey Specter's sunglasses from Suits. See, they are Specter glasses. :p

    I really like the Henrys, but will probably save money and get some folding Clubmasters or 49mm standard frames at some point.

    What did you jump the gun with in CR? I assume you got the OP Airmen for QoS. Even though not in the film, they are excellent glasses that hold their value. I've been looking for a pair for quite a while.

    not a collector myself but, you can't help be drawn into the collecting
    world. When you see such enthusiasm and love for the items. -{

    Loved the "anybody want to buy them?" "didn't think so" section!!

    Must say the Snowdons are the one SPECTRE item I'm not bothered about - the Henrys are superb though!

    Awesome video as always David!

    Actually I did checked the Rankin's book and went with the TF 237 52N which I believe are the correct ones. They look very similar to the shiny black ones and yes 2 Tom Ford stores tried to sold me the black ones last month.

    Here are some quick photos of mine. I can take detailed photos if you guys are interested.

    Ah, okay. I have both the tortoise and the black 2720s. Finally got the latter a few months ago. I find the black version usually goes for more on ebay.

    From the sideline I followed the debate on whether the Snowdon in Spectre was indeed the Shiny Black or Red Havana. Although it turns out that it is the Red Havana, I decided to go with Shiny Black instead. I know for the true collectors here screen accuracy is paramount, but from a aesthetic standpoint, the shiny black seems to resemble what was seen on screen more so than the Havana colorway. Plus the Shiny Black Snowdon just looks so darn sexy! :D

    David I loved your latest video on the Royale jacket. (Solden).

    I got mine yesterday, and I cannot believe how much I enjoy it.

    Thanks again for keeping us informed and entertained.

    I just finished watching the Christie's Auction video. Absolutely marvelous! -{

    I loved the close ups of the Day of the Dead masks and costume. Blair wouldn't have happened to take a look to see if the Day of the Dead coat had a manufacturer's label?
