The general consensus was to keep the same Skyfall sweater size for the Cable Roll Neck, but go up one size in the Mock Turtle Necks as those fit a bit slimmer.  So if you're an XS in the Skyfall, then you would be an XS in the Cable Roll Neck as well, and a S in the Mocks Turtle Necks.  Hope this helps!

Kind regards,

PS - I've PM'd you as well!

That's helpful to me, too.  Thanks Craig  ajb007/smile

Re: Spectre Wardrobe(from filming)

It's possible Matchless didn't even make the jackets, or provide copies of them. They were only involved after to produce a licensed version of the jacket. It happened all the time with Belstaff and their licensed jackets. Belstaff put out the War of the Worlds jacket, but didn't produce it for the film.

Not sure if anyone else has seen this, but Danner officially shows the Mountain Light 2 boot in Spectre. Has a great shot of the entire outfit.

I kind of understand. So on my recent trip to San Francisco I was trying on various Billy Reid jackets, including a $1500 black suede jacket. Large fit but was boxy, medium looked better but was too constricting along the back shoulders to actually wear in real life (as opposed to reel life). Not for me. I was also in the JV store, and mediums of anything were skin tight.

So you ended up going with the Large Matchless?

Yeah the xl was too loose... Agree tho, the fit has to be usable. We'll see I guess. Will put my mind at rest
Have the same issue with shoes as always between 8.5 and 9 depending on fit

Here's a pair from Moncler, which will match the Moncler jacket should you have one. Not quite as baggy as the TF ones but a lot more affordable. I can't believe these are coming back in fashion, I couldn't wait to get a more 'fashionable' pair when I had a pair like these back in the day  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Spectre Wardrobe(from filming)

what are people's thoughts on the Matchless... Worth the money or get Indy to make a copy? It's a lot of money for the original and wondered if people who purchased it are happy.

well, I have it. It sits in my collection as I don't get to wear it now, but It is a nice jacket.
BUT if you have this money I'd rather go for the Sölden blouson, I think it looks even better.
in the end it's down to your personal preference though.
Or if you definitely want a suede jacket, I'd take the JV, it's the same but for galf if the price.

Re: Spectre Wardrobe(from filming)

For those who have the Danner boots, I'm in need of some work boots and was thinking of using this as an excuse to purchase.  Obviously these are considered hiking boots so wearing them for long days should be fine.  How is the toe on these, fairly solid?  I'm not asking for steel toe but if I end up kicking some pallets or other hard surfaces, would they hold up?  I am normally a 9-9.5 but I'ver heard it's best to size down and go for the wide boot, what do you all think?

I agree, I have the Matchless jacket and love it, super-lightweight, great fit and very nice material.
I also have the Tom Ford jacket and ski pants and while you are paying a lot for the brand with TF,  the material is unbelievably nice. I looked at a lot of alternative pants but once you feel the material you just can't settle for anything else. I have the pants being slimmed down by a tailor right now as they are way too baggy off the rack.
I passed on the J.V jacket which did look very cool in the movie.

I love the Matchless. Yes its exp but not out of sync with their stuff. Worth it in my opinion. Goes well with loads of looks too, not just boots chinos polo look  ajb007/smile

Also agree re the TF... Worn it more in the last 2 weeks than I wore my Levis Menlo in 3 years!  So £ per wear is going to be better value

All down to your circumstances and personal tastes

Re: Spectre Wardrobe(from filming)

BREAKING NEWS ... MR WHITE JACKET IS IDENTIFIED
Thanks to the help of other members,
I confirm : IT IS DIOR HOMME !
I went to the flagship store in Paris today and discussed with the team there : even though they could not precise the exact year of the collection it belongs to, they confirm there is a 100% distinctive sign which is the stitching behind the shoulders. See below a picture of a very close model of bomber that is available in the current collection (but unfortunately not exactly the same : different fabric, no zip on the sleeves) : it has the exact same "scar" which is indeed a distinctive Dior homme signature.
Also the my white jacket does have a removable wool collar - just like the one I took a picture of today - you clearly see the button on the back of the collar in the movie.
The good news is the jacket is identified
The very bad news is that the jacket is according to me - and confirmed by the Dior team after checking the global catalogues worldwide for almost 45 min - IMPOSSIBLE to find since it belongs to an older collection.
THIS JACKET IS KILLING ME
I will try to forget it now  ajb007/frown  ajb007/frown  ajb007/frown

Congrats to Ajb007 member Steviekim who was the first to mention Dior Homme
I immediately thought of this brand when the picture of the back came out.
The button is also an exact match

The price of the current collection blouson was over 2000 euros.
I am going back to the store tomorrow to pick another coat - not related to Bond. I will check and take decent pictures
