    The jacket according to Matchless is a unreleased one.

    Must be a tweaked Craig so guess a Tom Blouson will be launched near film release

    It is a Matchless? Wow, good work!

    I was looking at the Daily Mail pics to try and glean more details on the leather jacket.

    Any differences from the Craig Blouson are subtle. The MI7 may be a little shorter

    In any case the retail version will no doubt have that ridiculous badge on the sleeve.

    Can anyone identify the black jeans worn with the Matchless? They look to be a slim straight cut as compared to the AG jeans from Fallout which were much skinnier below the knee.

    Judging by the clothing, that’s most likely a stand-in, but that‘s not Ving Rhames.

    What’s wrong with the badge? Looks discreet to me and barely noticeable and plenty of high end brands have a badge on the sleeve such as Belstaff. I think the Craig blouson is an incredible jacket and don’t see this version as nicer at all IMO.

    I really like the jacket and would buy it if it wasn’t for that badge. It ruins it completely. Same with Belstaff. I have a few of their jackets, but the branding on their products is a right turn off now. It’s the ‘look at me’ statement they represent. I like subtlety and the style of clothes to speak for themselves not the overt branding. It’s lacks taste and finesse, which is what Belstaff used to have.

    I have to agree with Asp9mm on this. That badge just ruins the jacket. The appeal of the Craig Blouson is the lines of the split seams. It's ruined, imo, by the metal badge on the sleeve. It looks like a beetle or giant tick is attached to the sleeve.

    I own the John Varvatos Split Seam Jacket which was copied for the Spectre Morocco jacket. The only external branding is on the zipper pull. Same with my Dunhill Layer Cake jacket and Tom Ford Harrington. Let the styling of the jacket speak for itself.

    I also worry what other changes Matchless may make on the retail version of the MI jacket. The owners of Matchless have a history dating back to their ownership of Belstaff of making blatant changes to screen jackets but not disclosing the changes in their marketing.

    I wonder if Matchless would be willing to do a one off run of the Craig blouson without the metal badge say 25 to 50 jackets?

    I've got Belstaff jackets in my cupboard from 10+ yrs ago and they all have Belstaff branding on the sleeve! It used to be a metal badge and then they swapped out for a cheaper material badge instead. Each to their own and i can see how some people would prefer not labelling ( i would be happy with either version) but people who buy a high end jacket often want something to signify that it is not a run of the mill jacket. Look at Barbour with their name plastered all over their jackets...to me that looks awful. On the darker suede craig blouson black or navy you can hardly see it, but yes its more obvious on the beige.

    I have that issue with polos. It's so hard to find a nice polo without a ridiculous contrast colour logo on the breast. Subtlety is rare in modern fashion. Sunspel is great in that regard, but unfortunately I'm not a huge fan of the fit.
  • Asp9mmAsp9mm Over the Hills and Far Away.Posts: 6,748MI6 Agent
    Yes, I have the same problem with Barbour international. But you can pick those labels off quite easily using a stitch pick.

    Polos, yep, same here. Lacoste make great polos, but that contrasting alligator looks terrible. Good news is, you can pick those off very easily too. I know a few people on here that do just that.

    Lacoste is now releasing some polos with the crocodile same color as the polo....or sweatshirt or shirt......very classy !!!

    News from the M:I-7 front...

    Everybody surely still remembers when Tom Cruise made headlines in December for verbally destroying some crew members for not sticking to Covid-regulations. Believe there were two guys standing too close to each other at a camera screen or sth...

    Well, apparently the new movie is being shot again partially in Dubai, which is like the world’s new hotspot for Covid according to various news reports.
    Following are some recent (from this weekend) pics of Tom meeting with some local ???

    You decide if that’s appropriate.

    Talk about hypocrisy... :)) :)) :))

    I don't understand why people are making fun of TC trying to do the right thing and abolishing those who are screwing up, potentially shutting down the entire production that he had personally fronted via his reputation and finance so as to be able to go ahead, providing jobs for thousands of crew members, and supporting the entire industry when nearly all productions has been forced to shut down. So he raised his voice and used profanity! Was he not talking to adults and professionals? Is hurt feelings and ego more important then potentially dying from a deadly disease, and possibly spreading it to those outside of the productions and creating another hot spot? It boggles my mind that there are people who cannot rationalise what he was doing because of their personal opinion towards him.

    Oh and on the same trip:

    My man, you totally misunderstood my post...

    I wasn’t ridiculing TC‘s actions from November at all. I was pointing out that he apparently didn’t take Covid-regulations too seriously now (lack of mask and distance) whilst chewing the heads off of aforementioned crew members. It’s ironic, noting more...

    I follow the production fairly close and know about everything he‘s done. He‘s also one of my favourite actors...

    So again, not „complaining“ about his rant from December, just pointing out the current irony.

    The "local" TC is meeting with in those maskless photos is the head (and executive staff) of DMI. Those folks have a considerably shorter vaccine line to wait in than the rest of us. I'm willing to bet all the money in my pocket that everyone in those photos got the vaccine back in December. But I agree. He should probably be wearing his mask regardless.
