Royale Enjoying Death Review

Just got my new Royale Enjoying Death shirt in the mail today and I’ve been really looking forward to this. I was initially concerned about the sizing as the Large was listed at 46 in. After the initial try on I was very surprised that it fit like a normal large. I recommend you stick to your normal shirt size. The arms were a little baggy for my taste and could be nipped in by your tailor. Once I rolled them up it didn’t even bother me.

Overall this is another fantastic product from Dan. Can’t wait to see what’s next!

    Do you feel that the floral pattern is more structured/rigid than the Zara? It seemed like it in photos but I'm not sure.

    I don’t think so. The packaging is so nice that shirt doesn’t have the wrinkles at all. I’m not the greatest at the fine details. I’ll say this I can’t see the difference. It’s easily one of my favorites. I’ll try and post some pics after the first wash.

    Thank you sir :)

    Yes, I initially forgot to put the chest size guide up on the sizing table, but the sizing is pretty standard. The large should fit around 42 maybe 43... and with the standard few inches of room on top of that it should fit pretty normally for that chest size. The pattern itself may be a bit more structured in terms of the flower rotation, the positioning is as close as i could get to the original, vertical columns, with a small gradient up to the right. The rotation was an executive decision in order to get a repeatable pattern. Very pleased with the overall finish of these and can't wait for The Bond Experience review!!!

    So glad to hear they're starting to arrive :s

    All the best,

    Dan

    Eager to get mine and wear it. I'm glad to see yet another great product from Dan and Royale. Way to go buddy! -{

    Dan in case you read this, some members in another forum post are discussing the trucker jacket that Tom Cruise wore in MI:Fallout.

    They've pretty much come to the conclusion that it was a custom jacket and were wondering if you ever would be interested in taking a crack at it? I'd definitely get one as I've also been looking for a couple years for that same jacket.

    Here's where you can find the post.

    That's a great help—It's handy having someone with similar measurements to you! I've been stuck for a while on whether to go with the medium or large in this one. How does the medium fit on you M?

    Thanks Dan you did all the hard work I just put it on!

    I would say it’s a little sung around the butt (not waist me 31/32in) but I leave the bottom button undone and it hangs fine (strangely DC did that in the film as well - how SA is that!)

    Well done Dan great product!

    Large is just too big everywhere. Ordered based on Dans picture. Id put Large as loose fit for a 42....
    Medium on way but looking at measurements i expect it to fit like a standard TF shirt ,slightly loose (ie not close / slim) but not baggy either.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, really appreciate it and it helps others out. I felt the Madagascar shirts came in a bit cropped and I was a bit paranoid about loosing length to shrinkage of the cotton... so we did give it a bit more length, just to make sure it was okay after a wash or two. Very easy alteration to take it up a bit if you need to. As it's only the second ROYALE shirt, I'm just aware that shirts are a different animal to jackets.

    Love to see pics guys when you receive them, always gives me a bit of a thrill seeing it all come together for everyone.

    These look amazing, can't wait to try it on.. What countries are you all in? Taking forever to make it to the US (23 days so far!). :(
  • Enjoying DeathEnjoying Death Toronto, ON CANADAPosts: 1,139MI6 Agent
    Received mine today and it fits as if tailored. Very high quality feel to it as well. All buttons seem very secure and no threads hanging. I'm glad I took Dan's advice (chest guide) and went up one size from my usual XL.

    Another homerun Dan! Well done as always my friend. -{

    Gentlemen

    Recieved mine today, and a great fitting shirt. Very good quality, and a superb replica!!

    Thank you Mr Love...please keep up the good work.

    For those looking for the size which is deemed best suited. I am a 44in Chest, and stand at 5'10 I ordered the XL and well pleased with the result.

    Anyone ordering from the U.K. It took approximately 3 weeks for it to arrive, plus I then had to pay additional Custom Charges of £26......So please keep that in mind.

    Mine arrived today, and I will say after years of trying I've finally got one that fits the way it's supposed to :))

    Here are comparisons pics. Set up so you can see the labels, shown under camera flash are the Zara, the Enjoying Death commissioned run, the Magnoli and the Royale.

    Image-from-i-OS-4.jpg

    I think Royale and the ED commission both get the collar right, and though the Royale is a bit lighter, I think the tone hews closer to what we see on screen, though it seems like a light dying could knock it closer to the Zara if desired.

    Royale next to the original Zara, in indoor incandescent light:

    I'll try to take some comparisons using daylight tomorrow.

    A closer look at the fabric of the Royale next to the Zara.

    The pattern, which I was worried about from photos, looks bang on. This shirt is out of the package, and I expect some laundering will bring the texture closer to the original. Well done, David!

    Thanks for the reply gentlemen regarding custom charges

    It happens everytime i purchased an item for NZ or Australia, the odd thing is I dont get charged anything i buy from the States.

    But thanks again, I wil have to ask the forum next time I buy something, how do I get around it!!

    The Zara and Royale look almost identical in daylight. Interesting how under artificial lighting not so much.

    I've got the feeling there is more space between the lines of "flowers" on the Royale than on the Zara ?:)
