Is it possible the unknown shorts are Tommy Bahama as well??
Cant find an exact match, but the most recent season has the same odd athleisure waistband and same drawstring.
i have spoken to Tommy Bahama and they confirmed the shorts are not theirs but they do look like Sunspel's Men's Upcycled Marine Plastic Drawstring Swim Short in Navy
There was also a pair of OB trunks from a previous season that matched quite well.. Plain Navy with silver tipped drawstring cords.. Those appeared shorter in length than the Sunspel - which appear to be a bit longer than the screen stills... but of course.. they are from a previous season and will be damned near impossible to snag. I almost picked some up recently on the secondary market but they sold before I pulled the trigger...
I think I remember The bond experience categorically stating that they are not from OB.
As he connections confirmed it.
If it is Sunspel it would great as its so obtainable from them, fingers crossed.
I just hope we solve it soon 😁
Funny that this thread popped up again.
I have been exploring the though that the shorts aren’t swim shorts.
Brunello Cucinelli makes athleisure shorts that have drawstrings and zipped side pockets.
i can’t find iterations from past seasons.
here is an example of the current versions:
Again, obviously not the correct shorts, but opens the possibility that the shorts are Cucinelli:
Think they may be an older season version of the Brunello Cucinelli “Spa” Shorts. Altered by hemming.
interesting as on his NTTD display I noticed he has an OB grey melange t-shirt.
Wow that is very interesting which display was that ?
I don't believe anyone has picked up on that and I do hope so , I love their T shirts
If these do turn out to be Sunspel I am in luck.. Already have a pair of previous season Navy Sunspel trunks but the only difference in mine is that the shorts - while the same color Navy - have royal blue drawstring with the silver tips.. And there is a small buttoned pocket on the front top as well.. minor differences - but hey.. close enough..
Sorry to say but I'm pretty certain the NTTD shorts are not from Sunspel. Have a look at post #11 in the ' NTTD items left to identify' thread, I explain why here: https://www.ajb007.co.uk/discussion/comment/1017580#Comment_1017580
Interesting... I'm curious about those side pockets as in one of the photos you posted it appears to have a sheen to the seam along the pocket as though it were a different material.
Oh, just on his BTS of TBE video on his NTTD mannequin with navy shorts and grey t the t has the white square OB label on the bottom left hem...I suspect it would be known so wouldn't read anything into it, think it's just an indicative outfit.
hi I think the shorts are Derrick Rose classic fit swim shorts, as he was spotted wearing them in Jamaica
I have a sneaking suspicion that one of David's "big reveals" will be the swim shorts. No inside information here and no clue what brand they will be (I agree that Sunspel would be nice), but whatever it is, I am interested.
Legally Bond on FB seems to think they are Derrick Rise also we shall see
Derek Rose does make sense as a brand. It's a boutique British company renowned for quality product and with a traditional look.
i spoke to Derek Rose today and the lady is very kindly going to call head office on monday and call me with an answer she looked at the photos and even she said the shorts look pretty close to the classic fit swim shorts they sell
I'm pretty sure the Derek Rose shorts don't have the welt zip side pockets, which Bond's short definitely have.
I thought these swimming shorts were confirmed as a soon to be released (with the film) pair from "Orlebar Brown"
Don’t think there’s been any such confirmation
hi all i have just spoke to Derek Rose they did some digging around and after chatting to their head office they confirmed that they provided shorts to DC, the photos of the scenes in Jamaica are obviously not perfect but the person i spoke to feels these are their Classic Swim shorts in Aruba.
I may be wrong but in the nttd clothing thread, the Derek Rose shorts were discounted a year or two back.
Summer of 2019 (which feels a long time ago now) I was in Ibiza and the DR's were in my basket, but some details were shown as not SA and hence not the used ones.
I would be surprised if the DR were the Jamaican shorts, Craig ones have no metallic eyelets on the back and no notches on the side plus the missing zip side pockets...
if DR really provided their shorts for the nttd production they may be from another scene, like:
anyway I think we will know a lot more very soon
Interesting, just as I was thinking (purely speculatively) Connolly have some very similar short styles - in completely the wrong colours - have previously told me they supplied lots of pieces - beyond what has been outed - and have just announced an upcoming range.
I'd add wouldn't take small details as a reason to include or discount any particular item before it's confirmed, so many alterations and tailoring tweaks are made that very little actually matches the off-the-rack product, as we all know.
Sorry to say, the Derek Rose classic fit swim shorts are definitely not the shorts Bond wears in Jamaica.
We can see more pics of the back of the DR shorts from this page on matches fashion: https://www.matchesfashion.com/products/Derek-Rose-Aruba-technical-swim-shorts-1316969
There's a rather conspicuous seam running across the top of the back of the DR shorts which clearly doesn't exist on Bond's shorts.
Its possible that some small details of DR shorts shorts change between seasons (for example the silver metal eyelets on the back of the waist band) but I find this particular seam panel unlikely to be subject to change between seasons.
As much as I'd like this search to be over, seems we're not there yet.
well you speak to Derrick Rose because they told me they gave DC shorts to wear in Jamica
During the initial costume planning, lots of brands send clothing to production so they can see what works and what doesn't. We've seen this in the past (Billy Reid shirt jacket, Tom Ford suits, etc). In the case of some C&J shoes, they even promoted them as part of their Bond collection, but ultimately they weren't used. So I wouldn't put much stock in a company providing a product. There can be (and have been) lots of last minute changes. Especially when DC gets involved in the decision making.
Not a dig at you mate. I wouldn't take the word of a company rep to be conclusive. Bond's shorts might be from Derrick Rose but the classic fit model are definitely wrong.
in nothing but a spirit of love I want to thank you for giving me a chuckle by choosing one of the grainier pap shots to make a point about 'clear' stitching details 😁
