I received a copy of Orlebar Brown's "OB Approved" this morning, in the centre is an advert for 007 exclusive editions, launching in July. The link for this is running a countdown, orlebarbrown.com/007.

Just thought I'd let you know, it's the first I've herd of it.

    Oooo they have my interest. Keen to see what they’ve come up with.
  • frommeyerfrommeyer ChicagoPosts: 403MI6 Agent
    Oh, this is great. Hopefully I can finally get a pair of Setters in Sky. I don't know if there's a difference between the Sky and Powder Blue versions but it's always gnawed at me deep down that, maybe, they're not SA.

    Be cool to see them riff on vintage Jantzen or those various tops from Thunderball.

    All will be revealed shortly.

    I think many of us will be very excited with what they have in store.

    Very exciting. I love all of my stuff from OB. Hopefully whatever they release isn’t such a limited run that it’s gone immediately.

    I'm really hoping for a re-release of the SA colour Skyfall swim shorts, and a re-release /confirmation of the SA linen shirt from Spectre.

    Oh great, that’s all I need. I’ve already got about 50 of their pieces. I’m gonna be in trouble :))
    Yes. Considerably!

    Thunderball espadrilles would be nice.
  • The Bond ExperienceThe Bond Experience Newtown, PAPosts: 5,473Quartermasters
    Many of you WILL be in trouble....I will say that this countdown is to a very limited run but it isn't a re-release of Spectre items. But this limited run is only the beginning of some exciting things they have planned for some time.

    Sorry to be nebulous.....for many of you it will be worth the wait.
  • JTMJTM Posts: 2,962MI6 Agent
    How limited is limited? :)) Sounds really good though, can’t wait!

    I think I will switch off all electronic devices for the next three weeks, just to be sure.

    Skyfall setters must be a certainty.

    I moaned about them being discontinued on Instagram and they replied something to the effect of “watch this space”

    Just had a very brief conversation with Frederica of OB's customer service. She said OB has no plans to re-release the setter shorts in Sky as they had an issue with the fabric. She also mentioned that the new 007 collection will consist of entirely new products.
  • welshboy78welshboy78 Posts: 9,863MI6 Agent
    Hmm - guess it will be a inspired by type collection then I guess

    It's probably too off brand for OB to give us the Goldfinger terrycloth romper. I've genuinely wanted one and have been underwhelmed by the fan replicas found online. So I'm going to hope nonetheless.
  • Bmorelli11Bmorelli11 Posts: 197MI6 Agent
    My wife gave me the heads-up this morning (she's the best), if it's Thunderball related they can just take my money right now!

    If OB is listening (and if they aren't, David, please pass along)

    It’s not off-brand at all. I have a sky blue terry cloth polo from OB and at the time I bought it, Goldfinger was referenced in the product description on their site!

    If OB was paying attention to this Kickstarter last year, they might be more open-minded than you think...

    I would say that you will all be happy...you may have to wait a bit on some things (the first release will please some, but not others) but in the end this is going to be very cool.....

    And for those that love Thunderball, get your duckets ready....

    Perfect timing..got some spare cash to spend. -{

    Probably polos and swim shorts with 007 branding. Or maybe pics of the Bonds so you can wear Craig, Connery, et. a.l on your crotch or perfectly formed ar*e.
  • Dirty PunkerDirty Punker ...Your Eyes Only, darling."Posts: 2,586MI6 Agent
    perfectly formed ar*e.
    (Someone noticed Trivia Challenge :)) )
    a reasonable rate of return

    I'm surprised this seemingly inevitable partnership didn't happen much sooner. N.peal almost immediately capitalized on their sweater being worn in Skyfall and it paid off not only in sales but brand recognition. Not to mention making two sweaters exclusively for Bond in the following film. Perhaps we'll see something similar from OB for B25?
