Topic: Spectre replica jackets,

A quick review of my latest jackets . The originals were too expensive so came across an online seller who has been very good.

I saw a couple of replicas on eBay and like many was a bit worried about what the quality would be like and how the transaction would be.


However - they were excellent - plenty of updates and corres and came from abroad pretty quick at what I think is a reasonable frugal bond price .

The Black solden jacket is a great fit and nice and toasty warm. Mine is dark navy blue - my mistake on ordering but is a very dark blue . It's not got knitted sleeved but has a warm jacket sleeve which is pretty much the same design . Pockets are nice and zips similar .

The Morocco jacket is made of great suede and I asked specifically to get the correct material and try and match the stiching so I sent several pictures. It fits well - not too tight as it nice to have room for a jumper underneath and I don't like things really snug. I sent the measurements - my sleeve are very slightly long but what I sent - back length perfect.

You hear eBay horror stories but these guys wee good and I said I would give them a write up and post some pics - whilst not the originals ( I have the original Menlo and Barbour from sky fall ) these are pretty good and nowhere  near the prices .

I paid $109 for the Morocco and $99 for the solden plus postage to the uk, I am ordering the Varvatos jacket replica from them.

They did a good job for me that's all I can say .

Re: Spectre replica jackets,

Is this legit or scam? Seems too good to be true...

Re: Spectre replica jackets,

I brought mine via eBay to ensure the buyer protection. All I can say is that mine are nice and came without too much delay.

Re: Spectre replica jackets,

Any chance you could tell us what you asked for from the seller so we can get the jacket as good as yours as I am impressed.

Re: Spectre replica jackets,

I sent him some pics I just got from Google to show the stitching style for the Morocco one. They seem to have a siZe chart on the eBay page but they Said a custom size was possible so I send him measurements . I Emailed them a bit and they replied pretty quickly - both came within a week.

The bomber was off the shelf so to speak - I thought it would black from the image on my iPad so the one I got was dark navy - you can hardly tell really . I have asked for him to do a suede racer but only ordered that today but can post some pics when I get it. Suggest you just contact them

Compared to the prices of the originals which are are a bit ridiculous I am happy. 

They said they can do others so he has pics of the Harrington and Dior homme I sent . But not sure whether they need to make them .

Re: Spectre replica jackets,

EBay description lists Morocco jacket as faux leather and as genuine leather. Which is it?

Re: Spectre replica jackets,

They both look very nice  ajb007/martini  I'm interested like Westward Drift to find out Whether the Morocco is suede of faux suede. Otherwise, thanks for sharing this, Vesper007  ajb007/martini

Re: Spectre replica jackets,

These jackets do look great, especially the Morocco one, but the price does concern me. When you consider that Magnoli is making a made to measure Morocco jacket with a price of 650$ USD, it makes one wonder what kind of corners these guys are cutting to produce these jackets. Not that there is anything wrong with extremely frugal versions of these jackets, just kind of thinking out loud here and the saying, "you get what you pay for" comes to mind. I wonder if Magnoli might be able to chime in on exactly what kind of quality could be reasonably produced at that price range, so we would all have a better idea about what we are buying.

Re: Spectre replica jackets,

Well I have taken the plunge with the same seller, again through eBay for payment protection purpose. Very responsive so far. The colour of the original will not suit me as dark hair, so I have asked them to do in a different colour to the same style (and not navy as have the JV jacket). Will up date you on progress and eventually pictures. Aiming at a darker Taupe leather, but lets see what happens!!!

Does it have the same fitted look that the Matchless has? I wasn't able to tell from the photo. Could we possibly see a full length photo of you wearing the jacket? Very interested in this.  ajb007/smile

Re: Spectre replica jackets,

Not mad about the solden repro but the two suede jackets look like very decent copies for the money. Well worth the risk you took. Thanks for sharing I'm sure the photos will encourage others to take the plunge!

So "matchless" Jacket arrived today from talfa-products (eBay name, links above to website www.leatherareena.com and eBay site), 11 days from ordering which was excellent. Packaging very nicely done in a special bag. Whilst eBay puts address as Chicago -the package actually came from Pakistan. It is leather, nicely lined (plain brown), but unlike the light weight Matchless jacket, this is a heavy material weighing in at 1.5 kg (just over 3lbs).  I actually specifically requested a darker leather than the Matchless version (Matchless colour will not suit me!). As you can see it is darker, but does not match the reference colour I sent via ebay which was a taupe colour - this is more buffalo! The seams do all seem to match the matchless jacket, but its a lot stiffer, unsurprising given the weight. In terms of fit good around waist and arms, but stiffness means not quite so good around chest, but OK. So for £85 including postage - you are not going to get a matchless jacket! I suspect you may find some better quality high street leather jackets for £85, but they will not match the style. It was an experiment for me and frankly if there is someone out there who wants to make me an offer (PM me - I have 34in waist and 39inch chest) I would be a willing seller as I cannot see me wearing it principally because of the colour again - otherwise I would, but you definitely would not want to wear it in Morocco - a cold winter evening and it would be fine! Usual problems with colour as looks like different jackets depending on the lighting (and its dark here!) - the picture with me wearing jacket (tag showing) - is most representative of how I see the colour (dark mustard brown). The last picture has a spotlight shining on it which changes the colour completely on the photo. In future I will stick with Magnoli and Royale for replicas!
