    I may have to adjust my movie rankings in my signature. Suddenly, TB is going up in my estimation.

    Jesus - its far too low in your rankings!! :))

    Domino alone should bang it in the top 10!!!

    She's a knockout, that's for sure. Honestly, the only reason why it's so low in my rankings is the pacing. It's all over the place...rushed in certain scenes and a complete slog in others. If ever a Connery movie deserved a fan edit to tighten things up, it's this one.

    Tried on a UK10 in the espadrilles. I'm a US 10C, and these felt like only one size too big. I think a UK 9 would have fit me.

    I might see if my store can get in the 10s and the 11s for me to try on. I think that they can get me the TB swimtrunks.

    Are the OB shoe sizes UK sizes? That might explain why the ones I got were so roomy...

    It'd be great if OB's sizing guide mentioned anything but pants/swimsuits.

    Yes, UK sizing.Espadrilles tend to stretch as well, so you want them snug when you first get them.

    The OB "jacket" is lightweight and constructed like a shirt, but it can be used as either a shirt or a jacket. It's almost entirely based on the green shirt that Moore wears in TMWTGG, but it is a slightly heavier fabric like the shirt in Moonraker.
    Thanks, Matt. I thought it looks more like the cream jacket, but I haven't seen any of them in person.

    As a heads up: my store (martinpatrick3.com) is 20% off storewide today, with some exclusions. I’m not seeing OB excluded. I’m heading out there today and will verify but I wanted to pass this info on for anyone considering the Bond items.

    I had to laugh. I told myself that this collection was just too expensive and I wasn’t going to buy anything.......yet I found myself on the phone earlier to my local OB store asking them to put aside one of the Dr No towelling polo shirts for me to try on tomorrow :))
    Yes. Considerably!

    Im trying to decide between the M and L polo. I'm about a 39/40 chest, 31 waist.

    Unfortunately I'm not able to get to a store anytime soon so if there are any members who have tried on both sizes I would really appreciate your thoughts on sizing. Thanks!! -{

    I'm a 41 chest, size 32 waist. Medium was skin tight for me, whereas Large had that perfect fit (it wears on me like it wears on Connery in the film). Medium would probably be a little better fitting for you than it was for me.

    Just how skin tight was the Medium?

    I'm roughly the same sizes and I stupidly ordered a small thinking that it would be close fitting, without first reading this thread or seeing Davids instagram post. The measurements on the site looked fine, but having only ever owned swim shorts from OB it seems that I was wrong, and it does size small/true to size; I guess I should have known better. 8-)

    Hopefully it either fits, a medium comes back into stock, I get a large, or they remain in stock on the 007 store for long enough. I guess I'll find out on Monday now...

    Verified. OB Bond is not excluded. They've sold a lot already but they still have some sizes on most. As of now, they have a medium DAF white shirt left.

    Very tight. It was not comfortable. Large was definitely the way to go.

    Great looking store! A shame they don't do online sales.

    Call em up, they can help you no problem. Indeed, the manager told me they've done quite a few phone orders this week and today.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I just picked up the Thunderball merino polo. Nick was awesome.
  • GymkataGymkata Minnesota, USAPosts: 3,441MI6 Agent
    Cool, glad they took care of you.

    Someone called up and wiped em out of the blue toweling polo and most of the robes.

    Diff colour (Sky). Though imagine tiny diff in shade

    Ohh ok, thanks Welsh! Considering picking these up in case it’s just a small colour shift and then they re-brand them for £245 and with a 007 tag on the side!

    That my friend is inevitable :))

    Found one answer within the pages of the small booklet dispatched with the Bond Collection. June 9th for the return of Skyfall Setters in Sky as well as the Goldfinger in Mid Blue. Now my question is do I pick up and make do with the Setters in Riviera with a small discount or wait to pick up the Skyfall one without discount and an extra £100 (at least) onatopp?!

    The OB US site said they are expecting a restock of the Goldfinger onesie in July. Them and Mr Porter have already done a MASSIVE restock of the other items including the DAF shirt. We are also expecting the Skyfall setter in June the 9th.

    IMO, This means they will mostly likely continue to produce This particular Bond collection for at least a whole season. Why would they stop now if they are selling out so quickly ? OB is now owned by Chanel. They are also selling them at 007.com. Maximizing on profit would certainly be one of the top priorities for everyone involved.

    Again this is just my opinion and hope. I could be very wrong. But I really do hope this happens so it gives everyone a chance, me included, to grab them little by little. :007) :007)

    I got 2 shirts and the quality is amazing . OB certainly does not disappoint.

    Orlebar now launches a green... jacket. Is it a mix of both? Is it part of the "inspired by"?

    My Thunderball merino arrived today , as many on here i was reluctant at first as it just seemed a typical 007 money spinner.
    Having wore orlebar brown since david announced it as a craig brand I must have 10 tshirs , several polos and shirts and couple of shorts.
    In my opinion just luxurious comfortable clothing, makes me feel great and perfect choice for summer weather.
    Having now purchased I was not disappointed, the quality and feel is beautiful , fits perfectly and cracking iconic piece.
    Understand the opinions on price point but looking at the sales its not been effected much. :))
    Value for money raises questions i guess, personally its all about choice.
    Lets face it i love bond clothing and this is just my 2 pennies worth.
