Re: A Very Special Daniel Craig item!

Really interesting to see the sister jacket to the dunhill layer cake Steve - can't believe you have two very similar!

I am going to sell mine - I'll post in the correct part of the forum once I have chance to take photos etc.. I've decided the style is not to my taste and it would be better with someone who appreciated it and wore it.

Are you referring to the actual Dunhill, which has European sizing or a replica?

There have only been 5 real Dunhill Layer Cake jackets to show up for sale in the last 7 years.

You can get replicas from Wested and Soul Revolver.

I need an unaltered 52. So far, there are none in the wild. Grant's was cut down to a 48, and Peregrine Carruthers had the sleeves shortened on his.

Damn..very rare. What did it last sell for? I'm not in the market for one but just curious. Being Dunhill on its own, no movie connections, should have the price very high.

Actual Dunhill. I'm not that impressed with the replicas that I've seen.

There's a genuine Dunhill Layercake jacket 52 on EBay right now, item 252179822377

Shocked to have seen two genuine Dunhill Layer Cake jackets on eBay at once. I bought the size 54 and it arrived today. It is gorgeous. I'll post some pics later.

In the meantime, Ross, how are the alterations on your 58 going?

Ross, CRB, perhaps you can help. I tried registering on Filmjackets.com almost three months ago and never got a confirmation from Rick. I sent him a follow up email and never got a reply.

I wish I could help, but the registrations part is down to Rick alone, I can't help there. I know Rick has been in some sort of trouble for 1.5 years now, he rarely turns up to the forum, but it's a shame that registrations slip away too as the forum needs new members to keep alive. I can always post your photos for you, but it would be nice to have your own membership. Where did you find the 54 - was it Kittlemeiers ? Dare I ask how much you paid ?

For those interested, filmjackets.com is now accepting new members, I'm now able to approve new members myself. We welcome the Bond community, but don't forgot we only really talk about jackets really ...

Come join us ...

I kinda figured that out lol.

Do they sell replica jackets or do they just literally discuss jackets? I visited but couldn't quite figure out what the deal was.

Both - it's what you make it. You're free to discuss anything really, but if you start talking about the creation of the universe or the internal workings of the combustion engine, you'll probably going to find not many people add to the thread ajb007/smile

We've discussed, bought and sold many Bond jackets over the years. But for items outside jackets (and sometimes other clothing) this forum is naturally a better place to discuss the finer details of Bond props etc. I daresay that some filmjackets.com members may have been interested in the recent Tom Ford re-run of the Quantum Harrington for example but weren't aware of it.

Simon did post about the QoS project, CRB. I wonder if anyone there ended up joining.

ED, I'll try to elaborate a bit on what CRB said. There are threads on FJ about identifying jackets from film and television, as well as jackets in general from certain brands such as Belstaff and Matchless.

A moderator has to start a thread in the film or television jacket forum (hence why there is a bit of overlap in the Miscellaneous Jackets forum where members can start a topic) so a thread may encompass jacket identification, acquisition, and various replicas.

There are a couple members who make replica jackets.

For the Bond/DC fan I'd recommend the discussion of the TND leather coat from the pre-title sequence and the Layer Cake jacket discussion. It was the latter that positively identified the jacket as a Dunhill (although Dunhill as a possible maker was first broached on Styleforum quite a bit earlier).
