    Agreed, the polo is amazing.

    Cool to see it in the sun, looks great!

    424 pieces of the collection left in the UK webstore lol. 140 odd of that is the Dr No Polo and 120 Pink TB shorts - guess they were anticipating huge sales of those :)

    Many items under 10 units per size, looks like more items will sell out soon like the DAF and Safari shirt

    The numbers have been plummeting down - huge success I reckon and only several days after launch!!!!

    I went for the Thunderball Camp Collar shirt and the DAF toweling shirt so far.

    After seeing some of the pictures on here, I am heavily considering the merino long sleeve polo. It looks great! Having some difficult justifying the price though since at the price point, options open up for “higher end” brands than Orlebar Brown. Also at almost $500, they shouldn’t be using imitation mother of pearl!

    Does anyone have the actual measurements for the Thunderball merino polo in size large? I’m torn on sizing.

    Mr Porter lists actual measurements per garment so might be worth talking a look until someone posts. Usually fairly accurate unlike generic retailer charts etc

    I'm a large. I'll see if I can do measurements when I get home.

    again: I'm 5'9", size 41 suit, 15.5 32/33 dress shirt, size medium or large in most shirts. Here's what it looks like on me:

    The medium was too snug.

    I would also recommend that you compare the measurements on MrPorters website to there Apple/Android app as I've seen some differences.

    Trying to imagine what would Daniel Craig’s James Bond wear from this collection ?

    In my opinion, he can easily pull off :

    1- The Thunderball Polo.
    2- The Thunderball Cardinal Shirt.
    3- The DAF shirt.
    4- The Thunderball swim shorts.
    5- Dr No Towelling Polo.
    6- Dr No Robe.

    I don’t see him wearing a linen tux shirt to the beach. Certainly not a onesie :D not so sure about the green safari jacket.

    I respect the fact that some fans might still buy everything since they are considered collectibles. But to me, I started getting only the items I see myself wearing.

    I would love to hear everyone’s votes on what would the current Bond wear :)

    Going off topic here, but it's another limited edition collaboration with a tropical feel:

    Seavees has come out with the Magnum PI collection, shoes based on the patterns of Magnum's Hawaiian shirts.

    Orlebar Brown isn't the only company do do whimsy, and Seavees is much more affordable.

    Maybe Higgins will get one to wear instead of his green trainers? :v

    As for the Orlebar Brown 007 collection, I really like the TB merino polo and the AVTAK jacket, but honestly I'd rather spend the $1k it would cost for those two items on my actual vacation.

    Have to say, the linen tuxedo shirt looks better than I thought it would. Great photos!

    David, how big is your closet? Is it merely a walk in or is there room for a monorail? :p

    Exactly! The onesie is decidedly absent.... :))

    How are you finding the Thunderball polo, David, for hand, fit and feel? I'm up in London on the 31st, but all will have been snapped up by that time, I expect. And what size was the robe?
  • The Bond ExperienceThe Bond Experience Newtown, PAPosts: 5,478Quartermasters
    Yes, there are more pics to come...(shudder)

    Blair have you seen my IG reviews? I discuss the TB Polo, but in short love it. Mediums in everything EXCEPT the robe, which I took a small and glad of it...chunky thing.

    Damn you, damn you all to hell...! :))

    Wasn’t overly impressed with the collection when I first took a look but, after seeing the real thing on you fine folks, I’m now £500 lighter in the wallet with a Thunderball double of shirt and polo on the way!
    Yes. Considerably.

    Just blitzed them! Great reviews. Damn! What's a man to do? They all look great. I thought that I had grabbed the pick of the bunch in the DAF shirt, but now I'm screwed as I want them all!

    Anybody tried on the Espadrilles yet???

    I'm curious on those as well. I'm a size 10.5US/43Eur (depending on the manufacturer) and I'm curious how OB shoes run. I've considered the Larsons before but never pulled the trigger on them. I'm in Italy and Greece this summer and it'd be fun to have the full TB outfit (red shirt, blue swim trunks, and the shoes) on the beach just to see if anyone recognizes the outfit.

    I’m a uk 10 in Crockett & Jones ‘ church’s etc but the espadrilles in uk 10 were too small I just exchanged for a uk11 and they are still snug
    By the way' the name is "James St. John smythe" I'm English

    They should be snug. Espadrilles stretch.

    Orlebar Brown's site is now saying that they expect a restock (of the DAF shirt, but presumably other pieces that run out, too) in July

    Odd that the Thunderball polo seems to be omitted from Mr Porter for whatever reason. I much prefer the service and free shipping and returns on Mr Porter so prefer to buy through them

    Glad to see you guys are coming around on that long sleeve polo. The price is rather steep but I'm telling ya, you put that thing on and you'll have a hard time not smiling.

    Thanks for this suggestion, Suit. Ordered the View to a Kill jacket on Tuesday and it arrived in Los Angeles via DHL on Friday morning. $325 all in with the exchange rate!
