    I like it. The Craig series of films have been light on summer layers.

    Bond may wear Harringtons and suede cafe racers in the heat of the day, but I can't. This casual linen-cotton jacket definitely fills a niche, no matter what else one wants to say about it.

    (As opposed to the presumed Barbour X Engineered Garments jacket for instance. Yay, another blue jacket. Also Dad-ish.)

    Love the review from TBE. I appreciate the honesty in that it’s ok to appreciate a piece while still considering if it’s something that could be wearable on a regular basis. I think it’s a nice different lightweight jacket with a retro cropped look to it. For me personally, the price tag makes it pretty easy to have to pass though. Has anyone had any luck with the mango alternative? Seems like it has been long gone for a while.

    I find the Mango alternative much nicer...
    The connelly jacket looks like a factory uniform.

    Sizes L and upwards are currently in stock. They restocked a couple of weeks ago on Medium and Small as well but they went quite quickly.

    Thanks for the video David.

    I have absolutely no regrets now baulking at Connolly’s exploitative price hike - I won’t miss not having this jacket one bit. The hugely less expensive Mango alternative will do me fine and even then I doubt I’ll wear that much.

    From what I was seeing, the uk Mango site was the only one that had certain sizes from time to time or if im incorrect please let me know bc i havent been able to find it whenever i search from time to time

    Question for everyone regarding the Drake's Crosby Suede mocs.....how is the sizing on this shoe? I wear a 9 UK in Crockett Jones, Church's and Loakes so i am assuming that i'd need the same for the Crosby's but the site says they run true to size and i've seen other comments online saying to order a half size up. Any insight given would be appreciated as i am considering them.

    Are we sure the Crosby Drake's are the screen used pair? Colors look different to me.
    I don't see the tan line in the movie stills.

    I'm willing to bet they altered the Crosby's for the film just like they altered the Danner boots as they did not come in black.

    The stunt man’s shoes jumping from Bridge, from which these were originally identified did have matching sole colours with Drakes, so I agree and suspect someone in costume department did some colouring in!

    I'm a size UK7 in all my C&J or U.K. brands shoes and I went for a size UK7 for my Drake's despite the fact some people were saying to size up.....the shoes fit well, as they should. The only thing you have to be aware of is the front of the shoes is flat so it can be a little bit embarassing when you wear the shoes at the beginning. Once they are shaped to your feet, it's okay :)

    I guess it depends on which run you own, some of them have the tan line, some don't.
    Same with the stitching-colour of the thread, I own a pair with a darker stitching (the thread has nearly the same colour as the chestnut-suede) The Stitching on the Drakes-pictures or the one Craig wears are much more better visible but I can live with that

    you make me nervous with your well-fitting-Connolly-Jacket-pictures, I sized up and realise that this was maybe a mistake :S

    I think we need someone to go to that Bond museum, pull the shoe off the mannequin wearing the sloop suit, check the branding on the inside sole, and then run like hell when security shows up.
    I've got $5 bucks for whoever does it.

    + 5 from me if this person can identify the brand of the blue socks

    I highly doubt it will ever open again now. They had to leave before June anyway due to Warner Bros taking over the lease and space.

    Totally agree! Great review, and the jacket looks great, Blair! And now I'm relieved I ordered the M as well since we're usually the same in sizing.

    Kind regards,
    Craig

    GREAT comparison and review Blair....BTW, looks great on you!
    I wanted to wait until David's vlog was up before posting these of my Connolly Giubbino Matera Jacket, so as not to steal any thunder, but here they are-

    Matera-i.jpg


    I'm wearing a medium, and definitely wouldn't have sized up. I have the same measurements as David, but obviously not as ripped! The jacket is extremely light, being unlined. The quality is fantastic. Sleeve length is a tad on the long side, so will need to be altered. But is it worth the massive price premium over the Mango jacket? Well, I have to say, mmmmmmm, maybe not. Unlike David, it is a style of jacket that I would wear in the Spring/Summer, but I also wear a lot of Henleys, which David wouldn't necessarily do. But, with a little tweaking, and if you don't feel you could buy the Connolly without really stretching the budget, I would say probably stick with the Mango. But for some, the Bond connection, plus the quality of the material and the fact that you could or would wear it out in the wild, then the pull will just be too great. And it would be a rare sight, too.

    Ahh I didn’t know that. It was pretty popular wonder if they will be able to get another location?

    It seems that the cars are going back to their donors, or back to the Archive, so I don’t think we will see anything in the UK anytime soon

    That’s a pity. Been twice to London and also went to The Motor Museum. Was looking forward to the NTD stuff

    I was there in late February and asked about this. I was told by one of the staff that they had guarantees they’d be there until the end of the year.

    Mind you even if that’s right I’m not sure the Covid 19 situation will have resolved by then...

    Hey guys, long time lurker, but not new to the costume game. I’ve made accounts on a few other sites where I’ve identified other film clothing (mainly stuff from Mission Impossible), so maybe I can help here.
    Only question at the moment is that of the Danner boots. The screenshot I’ve seen here of the “black” boots are clearly in the shade and look like the currently produced green or tan in the sunlight.
    Also, congrats to the lucky ones who somehow managed to get the ties when they are nowhere to be found online.

    Nothing yet, Mike. Last Saturday Maximos said he would provide me with tracking when it was shipped.
