Rid The Kid I don't mean to be rude but you are kind of derailing this with all your questions, do you want one or not thats all I need to know at this point! 

They will be standard sizing, they will cost around 2000 euro's, its not even guaranteed to happen right now as again I am just collecting names of seriously interested parties.

Well since none of my questions had been answered before I felt there was a need for them to be asked, perhaps others can have some interest.

Before I give the green light I always make sure that all my concerns are out of the way, since I never back out of a deal.  If I'm gonna spend €2000 on a piece of cloth I'm gonna be damn sure I want it without any hesitations.

Is that a problem for you?

Simon you are the man!! thanks again for working on this!! I think it's safe to say that SHOULD this work out you are getting Christmas cards from everyone on this forum ajb007/smile

Rid, Come on man,I understand that you have questions but this is Simons thread. Simon is working his butt off trying to make this dream a reality for us, at least have the respect to be polite to the man. There is lots of information available on this forum about the T.F Harrington without hijacking the man's thread. Yes T. F jackets are sized 50, 52, etc. I own a T.F Harrington and I believe that tailoring it would be possible to some extent, but when I mentioned the idea to my Tom Ford tailor he was very hesitant. I would size up one size as these run small ( especially over the shoulders and chest).
The cotton is super luxurious and the fit is splendid. Should you get a chance to pick one up I would do so in a heart beat as even taking the Bond factor out of it, they are suuuupppeeerr nice jackets.
$2300 - $4,000 for  a Screen accurate, discontinued T.F Harrington seems like a deal to me considering the current retail-not screen accurate version is $3000 at Tom Ford.

Thanks again Simon!

Re: **UPDATED PAGE 37: TF QoS SA Harrington Jacket Run**

Matt B- I think your conversion rate is off. Unless there has been updated info on how much these jackets will cost, 2000 euros does not equal anywhere near $4000.

The euro is worth slightly more than the US dollar. I've watched it drop in value over the past couple of years.

I think we all appreciate what Simon is doing. But in rid the kid's defense, the more questions that are answered, the more solid buyers will join the list.

It's difficult to give a committed answer to a hypothetical question.

My question is this:
If there is no minimum then when and how will we know if Tom Ford is going to give this project the green light?

Thanks again Simon for even getting this ball rolling. I think more details will help though in bringing about committed buyers.

Re: **UPDATED PAGE 37: TF QoS SA Harrington Jacket Run**

2000 Euro = $2200. Thanks for keeping my ballpark math honest..but my point was that anything in that range is in my opinion a good deal for this project..

56

Re: **UPDATED PAGE 37: TF QoS SA Harrington Jacket Run**

MrE

I guess we will know when Simon has finished collecting data here and presented it to Tom Ford.  The more people interested I would assume would have a more positive result in TF agreeing to do it (making it worth their while)

No point rushing to TF until this thread has been seen by everyone and given a fair chance to put their hands up if interested.

Sometimes with these AJB projects you only get one chance not to blow it

Re: **UPDATED PAGE 37: TF QoS SA Harrington Jacket Run**

Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if this jacket ends up costing less than the none screen accurate one that was released, because a company like this will most likely look at materials used instead of screen accuracy to gauge their pricing. Leather costs more than cotton, so no leather details, should mean a slightly less expensive jacket. Here's to hoping!  ajb007/cheers

Re: **UPDATED PAGE 37: TF QoS SA Harrington Jacket Run**

I didn't mean to sound smug Matt, just didn't want someone who's contemplating this purchase to see $4,000 and think to themselves that there's no way they could afford it.

Welshboy- thanks for the clarity.

Sruzgar- I'm in!

Re: **UPDATED PAGE 37: TF QoS SA Harrington Jacket Run**

I had absolutely no intention of hijacking this thread, sorry if it was perceived that way. There's no other thread to bring up any enquiries regarding this subject so I thought it could be good to throw out all the uncertainties and questions and get them out in the open = more accurate response from potential buyers.

Seeing as I've never owned a TF item, I don't think I've even laid fingers on a TF item ever, surely you can understand that I wanna know what I'm signing up for. I would be stupid not to ask around beforehand.

To give a 100% committed answer to something that isn't certain is difficult and since there doesn't seem to be a minimum of orders, why do we even need a list?

Having said that, I'm in.

Re: **UPDATED PAGE 37: TF QoS SA Harrington Jacket Run**

He most likely needs numbers to convince TF its worth their while.  Simon has done quite a lot of these projects with his contacts, he knows what hes doing and how it works and has a good relationship with Tom Ford.

This has potential

If this project gets the thumbs around the end of the year then I am 100% in!

Re: **UPDATED PAGE 37: TF QoS SA Harrington Jacket Run**

Interesting to see the balance TF want, ie not too many to make it a limited run but enough to make it viable...
Hope about 25 so we know its a very special and ltd piece

Re: **UPDATED PAGE 37: TF QoS SA Harrington Jacket Run**

Why don't you put me on the list? I've confirmed that I want to be on this list 4 times, I even wrote you a PM that confirmed this.

Sorry if I pissed you off when I wanted to know more about this item before signing up. Please put me on the list.

Right folks I have once again been tirelessly working away with TF Milan trying to get them to remake the original TF QoS Harrington Jacket (made of 100% cotton) and they are finally entertaining the idea but in order to fully determine the feasibility and price I need to gather a list of interested people (numbers).

I would assume that its going to be in the 2000 EURO ballpark, possibly more so please only submit your name if you are interested and no time wasters that we has with the tie project.

UPDATE: I would also assume that the jackets will be made in standard sizes, taxes will be taken off for those who live outside of the EU however you may incur customs and duties when it arrives at the destination country.  Shipping will be an additional charge on-top of the cost of the jacket
