I was just perusing Matt Spaiser's fantastic blog, the Suits of James Bond, and happened on this post from a few years ago:
What struck me is that several of the offenders Matt cites were the inspirations behind OB's biggest hits this summer!
It's almost as if Orlebar Brown took this post as a challenge and said, "We're going to take a few of these monstrosities and make them work."
Matt, your blog has taught me so much about men's style: things I wish I'd learned two decades ago. I am in your debt.

I pre ordered the DAF white towelling after it sold out on the first run. I tried it on in store last week and was quite disappointed and asked for a refund. Gutted because of all the hype surrounding it, it looks beautiful in the photos but on me the bottom button placement is so high that your tummy is constantly poking out and on show. I'm 6ft 2 and tried the medium.
Anyone else have this problem?
For those here that own the Mason & Sons edition of the camp collar shirt, what are your thoughts? Anything to note or be aware of on sizing? Appreciate any input!

Didn't want to start another thread but heads up if you're a fan of the camp collar Thunderball shirts, the original three by Mason & Son (pink, blue and white) are back in stock, and they've added some variants: striped and gingham. $120 each, with 20% off if you buy three.
Going on the OB site, it looks like almost everything (other than the swim trunks) has sold out or gotten close. Any word as to another wave coming? Considering how successful this first wave was, I'd be surprised if we didn't get more.
Orlebar Brown has a big presence in NTTD, but who would have thought it would be on the director and not on Bond?
