The launch was supposed to be in March 2020, but delayed due to the postponement of No Time To Die and Covid-19.

For this official collaboration with 007, Orlebar Brown recreates a wide variety of iconic pieces seen in early James Bond films, for a modern audience. Highlights include swimming trunks, polo shirts and a striped shirt worn by Sean Connery, a linen suit worn by George Lazenby and dark shirts and jacket worn by Roger Moore as James Bond.

The 2020 Orlebar Brown James Bond 007 Collection follows the 2019 007 Collection (which featured a large amount of recreated pieces) and the first instalment in 2018, which featured 4 poster print swim shorts.

The pieces of the 007 Collection are not exact replicas of the original Bond pieces, but rather a new interpretation by Orlebar Brown, with a more modern fit and details like smaller collars or longer shorts.

As Orlebar Brown specialises in beachwear and swim shorts for exotic swimming pools or beaches, the brand is a perfect match with many of the Bond garments from classic beach and pool scenes in the films.

The collection is now available on the Orlebar Brown website.

Orlebar Brown Dr. No Knitted Polo

There's one final not so screen accurate addition to the collection: the Orlebar Brown Dr. No Knitted Polo is a very nice knitted polo in a colour that resembles the colour in a publicity photo for Dr. No.

But the photo is heavily color corrected, and the original color of Bond's outfit in this scene in the film is of course the blue (like the blue trousers mentioned earlier). 

The Orlebar Brown shirt is a very nice shirt nonetheless, one of the nicest of the whole collection. The knitted polo shirt with waffle stitch in ivory cotton (50%) and silk (50%) is super smooth, lightweight and breathable.

Orlebar Brown Thunderball Stripe Shirt
