Dang, that is a nice jacket. I tend to agree with you though that I prefer the Banana Republic one in some ways!
BR has really stepped up their game this season. Nice to see a mid tier brand putting out some cool pieces.
The Rag & Bone Henley is on sale as most of you knew. But if you haven’t bought anything from them yet, you can sign up for texts and they send you a code for another 20% off!
That’s $90 for the screen accurate Henley Bond uses in NTTD, on top of that, FREE SHIPPING!
You’re right as hell I bought one
Thanks for the tip @Chico !
New post: my list of favorite pieces from NTTD
This is a totally subjective and completely biased list, so I have no doubt many of you won't agree with all my choices. But hey! That's what makes all of this so fun! 😁 Also, I haven't seen the film yet (going on Wednesday), so please, please NO SPOILERS in this thread! Enjoy your Sunday, gang!
Question for the email some of us may have received if we contacted Daniel Love from Royale Filmwear on the Shanghai Peacoat coming soon.
What can anyone say about the last version sold? Anyone with the Billy Reid Peacoat that can vouch for accuracy and/or closeness to materials? What of the fit?
I’ve saved up to buy it, but I want to make sure I’m getting a good quality Peacoat that is cheaper than the Billy Reid but understandably close to it.
For anyone looking for a frugal version of the NTTD Connerlly Shirt, I found this in Ralph Lauren outlet in the UK. It’s called a dress shirt lux a very reasonable £95 less discount 😄
It’s not linen but a nice weave and luxury cloth
Label for anyone interested
Dan is a perfectionist and a collector same as the rest of us here. He has been nice enough to share his work with many on this site. Quality gear and a reasonable price, you should have no concerns there.
@Bond44 That looks great, nice score!
@Chico ditto on everything others have said about Dan and ROYALE. He really does care about the details and quality. So two thumbs up
Thanks it will keep me going until the real ones come back in stock!
I’d also agree with that. Have quite a lot of Dan’s stuff and it’s excellent
I concur on the items Dan and ROYALE sells. Top notch. He doesn’t settle for less than the right product he wants to sell. I’m also holding out for one of these.
Happy James Bond Day, gang!
To celebrate, I've updated an oldie but a goodie: alternatives for Bond's SPECTRE robe
Enjoy the day (and your martinis!) 🍸️
Came across this Quantum Harrington substitute…?
Won’t break the bank and has a lot of the must have features.
Well, today's the day for many of us! I've updated the post on the NTTD watch with new alternatives. Some of the suggestions have come from you fine folks here and I've tried to keep track of who deserves credit for what. But if I missed you please let me know so I can make the correction in the post;
P.S. @Garyorange that Harrington's not too bad! If the sleeves are long enough, I'd actually consider getting them hemmed to remove the elastic. It would make the jacket even closer.
I know that this Omega has never been 100% confirmed but if anyone knows a good alternative for the Vintage Omega Chronograph Caliber 321 which Bond might wears in the last scene of Spectre I would be very thankful.
@Noi not sure if you saw this, but I had some alternatives in this post (at the end)
I didnt see that, scrolled through DC JB Omega Watches Part 1&2 but havent found this particular post. thank you!
J Crew Factory has a nice Rag & Bone henley alternative on sale for just under $20.
In case it doesn't link correctly, the item number is J8214.
Mainline J. Crew also has a nice off white henley, which I got last month.
For those who still want the R&B, I just ordered mine. I found a 15% off code on Rakuten, stacked it with 15% off my first order, and for 12% back through Rakuten. I should've just ordered it last week when the sale was better, but oh well.
Greetings! I've reworked the post on the SPECTRE mock neck sweaters with all new alternatives. And there are some really great ones this season, especially for the charcoal version
Happy Sunday! I needed a break from Bond (sacrilege, I know). So I asked Ryan from Iconic Film Style to help with an article on 1980s Action Hero Style
Back to basics, to the good ol' days when guys just blew stuff up and used catch phrases while wearing tank tops 😁
Out of that cast if characters pictured came some great one-liners.
Oh yes! Although I think credit has to go to Connery Bond for starting the trend.
Completely agree! Moore did a great job. Heck, most of the Bond actors have done great too.
I'm old enough to remember when Schwarzenegger stole that one-liner shtick from Bond. I assume it was because he had trouble with the dialogue and one short sentence was the best he could do.
If I remember right Schwarzenegger didn’t have a problem speaking English, his accent was an issue of course but he knew the words. The “issue” as it were was the screenwriters and studios not being confident in the audience understanding him and writing less dialogue in turn.
One of my favorite stories is the screenwriters for Predator having their first meeting with Arnold during preproduction and then going home and immediately getting rid of the majority of his dialogue, creating the stoic attitude Dutch has in the film out of necessity
I was just being snide. But it did annoy me that Bond had formerly been known for those one-liners until Schwarzenegger made them his own. But who can dislike Predator?👽️
