Orlebar Brown has made its new 007 swim short collection available to pre-order ahead of the official release.
Orlebar Brown’s first involvement with the 007 series goes back to Skyfall, after they provided Daniel Craig’s swimwear for a very brief pool scene.
This new collection features artwork from four James Bond movies printed on the British swimwear manufacturer’s Bulldog swim shorts. The four films in question are Dr No, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice and Live And Let Die. Curiously Skyfall isn’t reference, at least for now, and this is a different model to that which appeared in Skyfall. The Setter model features a shorter leg than the Bulldog.
They come in at a rather pricey £245 and I’m not sure any of the designs is particularly flattering. However, if they are your kind of thing and you’re looking forward to your summer holiday then it’s perfect timing.

Cool shorts. I would definitely wear them if they weren’t so ridiculously expensive. It wouldn’t hurt if they were down to the knee, I doubt I could pull of such a shorter length at my age. Thunderball looks the best.
That brings up a great question – Why isn’t there more 007 merchandise avail over the years? In the 80’s I couldn’t even find a 007 tee shirt. maybe with vintage Connery pose or even poster art.
There are endless spins on Star Wars, Marvel, DC, and Disney products appearing on merchandise everywhere. You never see a vintage 007 poster or movie still on anything.
