For customers who want to step inside the clothes of one of cinema's most iconic characters, there is now an online waitlist for the onesie and the site's description predicts the item will be back in stock in July.
"At the bottom of the page, was this glorious terry-cloth onesie," says James Wester, a Bond fan who discovered the product online. "I couldn't believe that it actually existed in reality because it's that one piece of clothing ... that everybody who's a James Bond fan I think knows about."
Laverty, for his part, associates the product with goofiness not glory.
"A lot of people see this as perhaps one of Bond's only real infamous fashion disasters ... I can't really understand how it sold out, but wow," Laverty says.
"It's a little odd, even Sean Connery can't really pull it off. It's amazing to me that guys now are trying it."
Still, he acknowledges the costume's importance to the film's legacy.
"What's amazing in the movie is that he manages to outsmart Goldfinger, get the girl, all in basically 10 minutes while wearing this item of ridiculous clothing," Laverty says, pointing out that the item actually more closely resembles a playsuit than a onesie, a brand name for a baby's jumpsuit.
Laverty surmises that Orlebar Brown is targeting rich older men with the novelty product.
For the average Bond fan, without hundreds of dollars to spend on terrycloth play suits, the product might remain a fantasy wish list item for now.
Says Wester: "$545 is probably a little too much, but if this does take off and people continue to want these, I could imagine maybe buying the Target version."
