Briefly seen during the daytime train sequence in SPECTRE, the Orlebar Brown Blue Linen Shirt Bond wears under the Matchless Blouson has definitely caused some confusion.
The shirt is almost certainly from Orlebar Brown, but the exact model is still up for debate, with options from their current lineup including the Malone (still available at Nordstrom in medium and X-Large for $195.00), the Morton Classic (£165.00) in Butterfly Blue, the Morton Tailored in Butterfly Blue (£175.00), and the original Morton in Sky (still available at Neiman Marcus for $275.00).

Features Wanted for the Orlebar Brown Blue Linen Shirt:
- Light blue, long sleeve linen shirt with visible weave in the fabric
- Shorter, non-button down collar
- Trim or slim fit (debatable since we only see it under the jacket)
- No chest pocket
- Tonal blue buttons
For those in the UK, Marks and Spencer is offering their M&S Collection Pure Linen Easy to Iron Shirt in Light Blue for £35.00. Chest pocket again.
Some good choices here as well. Listed from lowest price to highest.
Perry Ellis has the Rolled Sleeve Linen Shirt in Light Blue for $44.99 plus an extra 40% off ($26.99).
JC Penny has the Clairborne Long-Sleeve Linen Shirt in Sailor Blue on sale for $29.99. Seems to be a brighter blue than the screen used shirt, but all sizes still available at that price.
Dillard’s has a full run of sizes in the Murano Long-Sleeve Linen Slim Spread-Collar Button-Down Shirt in Light Blue on sale for $27.82, down from $79.50. They also have a lighter blue Murano option here, also on sale for $27.82.
As always, I’ll keeping adding viable options as I find them. In the meantime, share your alternatives in the comments! And remember to check us out our Facebook page and Pinterest Boards for more James Bond style advice, inspiration and info on where to find the latest deals!
