    If anyone can capture screen shots from the 6th Series Blu-Ray, please help out - I'm trying to find high-res images showing the two distinctive BLUE colored bowties Smith wears during the 6th series.
    The first one we see is the future Doctor that gets shot in TIA, this blue bowtie has a very subtle pattern.
    The other blue bowtie has a cross like pattern on it that is stitched in I think.
    Id like to see Magnoli offer replicas of these bowties...

    I am having these produced and have art work drawn by the company to replicate the tie.

    @GeneralFROSTY Indy is going to be making the interlocking "I" tie, but he has a bunch of other projects in the queue ahead of it. I recently saw a very high-res photo of it that showed that the pattern is actually stitched into the fabric. I'll have a look for where I saw it.

    @thorney what do you mean by you have "art work drawn by the company?" what company?

    He's probably having a run of them silk screened somewhere.

    What about the 'other' blue bowtie he wears?
    I can't seem to find pics of it and don't have the ability to rip screen grabs from my bluray.

    While we're talking 11th costuming, any sources for those shiny skinny jeans Smith wears? I think they are called "waxed" or "coated" jeans - which gives it that shine. Maybe there is a close-enough alternative out there that is readily available?

    The originals are still available in some sizes for an exorbitant price.

    The jeans are G Star Raw Blade Slim in Spark Denim (the color)

    Unfortunately, the sources are pretty dried up on these. You can get other colors pretty easily still, but the waxed ones are pretty darn unreachable. Hopefully someone lets some go from a backstock soon.

    I picked up a pair in a color called "vintage aged" off of Zappos just in case I can't get the right color I'll have the right style. Still looking though.

    Technically we don't know for sure that that is the exact style and colorway that Matt wears because there are a lot of differences in the branding to that specific style in comparison to the ones on the show. It's possible it is the correct style and they were heavily modified (that does work) but it is also possible that they are from a season or 2 before the Blade Slim Spark.

    Also in the latest Xmas episode it appears he is wearing the G-Star Blade Slims in the Crushed Black colorway which still has a bit of a shine to it but isn't waxed. You might be able to find those online as well.

    Links?
    I also found these - I believe these are the ones said to be worn in the latest Xmas special:
    G-Star Blade Slim Foil Denim - Zappos.com Free Shipping BOTH Ways
    I hate having to buy clothing online as Id prefer to see fabric with my own eyes. I think that shine is what really makes the jeans stand out.
    If anyone has this pair, please share some photos in different lighting conditions to better illustrate how they look in person.

    Those are the crushed black I was referring to. I'm pretty sure these are the ones he is wearing in "The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe." I have a pair at home, but I'm at work at the moment.

    He is wearing the spark denim version. He only wore the crushed black pair in A Christmas Carol and TiA/DotM. All other pairs worn in further episodes are the spark denim version. I have them and they do not look as waxy as they seem.

    Here is a link to my photobucket page with pics.

    Thanks for the link.
    I will prob end up getting the crushed black ones. The design looks good and if they have a little shine, that should be enough to stand out. Wish there was a way to wax them at home. I believe the process has to be done to the raw fabric prior to construction.

    I am lucky to have found the spark denim but it not the colour, it is the design. The crushed black is exactly the same design, back buckle and everything. So go for them.

    Does anyone have the Abbyshot jacket yet? I've had mine on preorder for a while (just waiting for my size to come in stock) I have to go with the medium and hope to have it altered since Abbyshot made the odd decision to make odd, inbetween sizes for some unknown reason.

    Nope sorry Thorneyboy, but that is incorrect. I have both Crushed Black and the Vintage Aged Spark they are very different and the pics below show that he wore the waxy vintage aged spark denim in A Christmas Carol and TIA/DOTM and the crushed black in TDWW

    A Christmas Carol:

    There is also a third variation that of G-Stars worn in The Girl Who Waited with no buckle in the back:

    Maybe we will get lucky and he will continue to wear the crushed black versions for series 7 since they are still available.

    Considering the timing etc they probably bought the crushed black around the same time we were all buying ours since the exact style/colorway worn in the rest of series 6 were no longer available.

    Could be a sign he is going to be wearing the crushed black for series 7 unless they decide to upgrade his costume to another style.
    I just hope they keep his tweed the same. I'd like to think I don't have to buy all the variations of his jacket to keep my OCD at bay...

    Modernboy my apologies, I got it the wrong way round. I knew both were worn but thanks for clearing up which ones on which episode. Never knew about the trousers on TGWW. Very interesting.

    What is the fit like on these - I usually can wear a 30" at smallest but a 31" is perfect. Sometimes with slim jeans, you need to wear a size up on your waist.

    I'm also a 32 and picked up a 34, mostly because I have fairly thickly muscled legs for someone with a mostly sedentary lifestyle. The waist seems to run true to standard jean sizing as it's about 2 inches too big, but the legs are fairly snug, so I'm glad I got the larger pair.

    When I say "standard jean sizing" I refer to the fact that, at least in my experience, jeans tend to run a size larger than they are labelled. For instance, I have a 34" waist, yet almost universally wear a 32.

    Now that we have thoroughly derailed the topic... Someone find one of these ties. I need one to go with my new G Stars and the Shetland tweed sitting on my cutting table.

    I have several options right now for the series 6 jacket - I have ruled out Abbyshot as I am not satisfied with the overall accuracy.
    I have a set of series 5 shirts from Steve Ricks and very happy with them - I am looking into getting one of his bespoke series 6 jackets, although the price is very prohibiting at the moment. I am hoping Magnoli may come up with an offer that suits my hobby budget better at this time.
    As for the jeans, I am def going to get a pair of the crushed black g-stars - still on the fence about size. I hate ordering clothing online - I like to try it on in person.

    Well here is the artwork for the bowtie. I am not bothered is someone wants to use it to produce these but please just ask me first either on the thread or via PM:

    Please excuse the shape of the bowtie. It is not the shape you could have it, it is just a standard shape the pattern was drawn in. It is more the pattern that you should be interested in. Let me know what you think guys.

    I guys, I'm french then please forgive me if my english is not so good.

    I saw that you were wondering were to find the bowtie of your dreams.
    If you got enough money (I'd say like 200 bucks, and more if you want some very expensive materials), there's a french créateur in Paris, place Vendôme, named Monsieur Jean-Yves, who's specialized in Bow-Ties creations, all his bow ties are handcrafted in his shop, and he does an excellent work.
    If you want a personnal bow tie, he also does custom ones, you can ask him to make replicas from Matt Smith's Bow Ties.

    He's very popular in france, he makes bow ties for a lot of movie stars, specially when they come to Cannes.

    Having a Matt Smith's Bow Tie made by him could be really cool.

    I already asked him a few ours ago how much it would cost me to do the Matt Smith's Blue Bow tie (this one http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg842/scaled.php?server=842&filename=newbluebowtie.jpg&res=medium ), If my order is getting complete, I'll show you some photos!

    No way is a bowtie worth $200 - only if it was production used would I consider paying that much.
    Magnoli Clothiers offers custom movie and TV related wardrobe pieces and accesories at reasonable prices.
    I believe I read that Magnoli is planning on doing the series 6 bowtie and is also working on the series 6 jacket.

    Switching gears here...
    I noticed while watching my series 6 Blu ray, right after the Doctor gets shot and is laying on the sand we can see his suspenders really well in the daylight. They look like they have a purple color to them - is this because they are actually purple or do they take on that color under that lighting condition?

    I won't change my hairdo unless I think I can pull it off. Thankfully, I don't have Matt Smith's Frankenstein-ish head, so I really don't see the point in getting my head area to look like his. I'm happy having a decent costume.

    I could def pull of the 10th Doctor look better - one of these days I will have to get Magnoli's 10th Doctor suit.
    It's weird because the way I'm doing my hair right now, it has sort of a David Tennant look to it - so when I dress as the 11th, I look sort of like a hybrid Doctor!

    I started the thread - so long as we're talking the look of the 11th doctor I don't care!:)

    So I have my order in with Magnoli for the Series 6 Tweed. Not cheap, but he offered the jacket to me for considerably less than what another great bespoke clothing maker wants for it.

    I'm getting the "Otter Wax" fabric wax to use on my eventual purchase of G-Star Blade jeans. This should give them the waxed look nicely - however I DID notice that the crushed black Blade jeans has a BLACK button and not a BRONZE one like we see on-screen - any way of changing this without having to paint it?

    The 3D Aged Spark Denim ones have a black button as well - I just sanded the paint off mine. It's silver underneath, but that's closer to accurate than the black.

    In some episodes, the later of the series his button on the jeans is black and not bronze at all.

    I like the contrast of the button so we will see what I end up doing when I get the jeans.
    I just paid off Magnoli for the tweed so hopefully in a month or two I will have that.

    I really wish they would have stuck with the Series 5 PS shirts. Part of me is going to want to do a "hybrid" look, wearing one of my Series 5 shirts with the Series 6 tweed - and the other part of me - the stickler for accuracy, will be forced into wearing a seemingly plain shirt.

    Though I still will keep and wear my Series 5-ish tweed, I can always rotate between looks.

    I do a hybrid look for my Indy gear. I rock a Raiders pinch with a LC brim curl. Some of my other gear components are also mixed between Raiders and LC.
    But with DW, I would like to try the series 6 look with a regular shirt a few times but I just don't think it has the same overall effect (especially in person) when wearing those bowties with the matching colored shirt.
