Topic: Spectre poster trousers found!

A very special delivery from Italy arrived and I wanted to share that I managed to track down a pair of the Neil Barrett trousers in the Spectre teaser poster (and possibly the movie finale)!  You can see the correct pattern and the frogmouth pockets in my pics below.  ajb007/amazed

This has to be my first proper "find" since starting to collect Bond clothing.  Normally I've just bought items still available at retailers, but this is the first time I've had to hunt for something. This forum has taught me if you work hard enough, you never know what you'll turn up!  ajb007/cheers

The trousers are from NB's Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. The code of the trousers is BPA140 series 1213.

I managed to stumble across this pair from an Italian retailer who carries overstock NB items. I've not managed to find any more anywhere in Europe. Because they are old season, NB or their stockists have not been able to track down any other pairs (even knowing the code). So just pure luck in the end.

And finally, after finding this pair and recontacting NB, I found out according to the tag, the pair I have is actually the sample from their showroom pre-collection. So they told me I'm very lucky as I've somehow got the original pants.  ajb007/lol

Cheers guys and thanks for letting me share!  ajb007/martini

Hearty congratulations.  ajb007/cheers

So it turns out the Neil Barrett post after the release of the Spectre poster was correct after all.

I have to ask, do they fit?

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

Well done Kadd, we can only hope they reissue these to meet demand

great find! now you can throw out those alternatives I saw you wearing in London!  ajb007/lol

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

kadd, what is the fabric content?

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

Well done, Keith!!  Congrats on tracking down a pair!   ajb007/cheers   Truly a rare piece!  And thanks for sharing. Now the flood of emails to Neil Barrett begins.

Kind regards,
Craig

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

Awesome! Congrats.  I agree with DBS, lets start the emails to NB!  Hopefully they can re make these.

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

Great find!

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

Thanks for the kind words guys. Very satisfied at the moment.  ajb007/martini

When dealing with Neil Barrett I contacted both their head office and flagship Milan store. They were very helpful. I dealt with someone named Sylvie at the head office. Since this is a sample I hope someone here can get their hands on one of the production ones.

I must admit I never thought to bring up the topic of getting them remade with Neil Barrett!

MattS here is the fabric content:
54% VI
26% NY
14% PL
6% EL

The fit is skinny but because of the elastane content they are very stretchy.

Haha but they're still so new!  ajb007/lol

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

Somehow I'd  have expected these not to be made exclusively from synthetic fibres. The turtleneck being wool/cashmere etc. But I'm sure they're great nonetheless.

Pair it with the CR Alfani shirt for the total synthetic package.

Thanks! 6% elastane is quite a lot of stretch!

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

Does Bond wear a belt with these pants? Nice job finding these.

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

Yes, he does wear a belt with the trousers, and they are 100% the same trousers worn with the JV Racer.

Re: Spectre poster trousers found!

These look like a very good alternative, Neil Barrett, very similar pattern and same design/pockets etc. These ones are 100% wool though. Only 3 left!

+1 I'm very surprised they are not almost exclusively wool, I actually refrained form buying these http://www.marksandspencer.com/5-pocket … /p22390682

and instead opted for these:

http://www.marksandspencer.com/cotton-r … /p22397703

Because of the artificial fabric in the former, I find that fabrics made of a blend of many different types are the first to  become creased and mottled. Perhaps this Neil Barret fabric has some redeeming qualities?
