    Just a quick update and a ray of good news!

    I've been speaking with Luigi and he is quite excited to hear we are right around 30. He is doing his best to pull for us and trying to lower the minimum to 40. So we will see.
    If anyone else wants to jump on board, feel free!

    This might be the very last Tom Ford James Bond Special Edition limited run Project ever done concerning items from the Daniel Craig Era of Bond.
    Stay well! -{

    I think there will be more projects in the future but this whole COVID situation is making things difficult!

    I have a question for you guys. I want to run this by everyone before I present it to Mr Zaritsky. I know we're not there yet, and that we don't really need to worry about the finishing touches quite yet, but after watching the Haiti scene, something seemed off to me in comparison to the muted pink prototype that Luigi sent to David. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, because I know that David already mentioned the placket and the overall length were a tad too long, so they wanted to revise those details, but something else still seemed off. I think I figured it out, but like I said, please comment and leave your input.

    I'm thinking that the sleeves on the prototype are way too short. In the movie, the sleeves of the polo almost go down to Bond's forearm (at times). I'll add some pics.

    I agree the prototype arms look too short. I think the length in the pics you have posted shows they are mid bicep which is the most flattering and what i think would look ideal if you have decent biceps. The angle of how he is tanking and with his arms crossed make them appear longer than that in the picture. In the last picture you can see they are mid arm and certainly not going to the forearm in length which would look odd for a polo. Also I have several TF polos and they are all cut to show off the arms and they are mid bicep length.

    Sunny01, are the TF's you have anywhere close to the SA one? If so, could you provide some measurements to assist in the remake? I am sorry if I have missed something concerning this already. I seem to remember that DZ at one time hadn't received his SA one back so if you have one it might help.

    Tom Ford Polos are usually Slim Fit, I normally go for European size 52 in their classic polos, but for this one I'm going down 1 size, a size 50 since this one is a little more of a relaxed or classic fit.
    Hope that helps.

    And let me know if you'd like me to add your name to the list. :)

    I agree the arms look short but I expect any issues to get sorted out down the line. Its a really quite unique fit, I've never seen another polo capture it.
    MrE its great to see your enthusiasm for this project. I can almost feel the fabric on my back now. It would be amazing if we can get the minimum down to 40.
  • MrEMrE Can't be too careful Posts: 493MI6 Agent
    Greetings all!

    Luigi has informed me that he will not hear back until the first of September whether or not we can lower the minimum to 40, so should get back to us soon.

    One thing I would also like to throw out there, is that I have had a number of e-mails from members stating that they want in on this rare project but they are waiting to free up funds or waiting to see what the final price is. If you want this polo, I would recommend acting now rather than later.

    I can tell that Luigi is willing to do all he can on his end to make it happen. If the price ends up getting raised or ends of being too high for you, you can always opt out. We're not going to judge you as we all know life and needs at times eclipse want.

    Stay well everyone! And don't be shy! If you're on the fence, jump on board!

    Without 100% official pricing, just don't expect to pay less than $450.

    This is an item that is going to be made in Italy not Portugal, so the cost of manufacture is higher.
    The polo will also be a Cotton/Linen blend

    Ok on that basis please add me to the list!!

    Does that make it 30? Or are there more people who have indicated interest via PM, but not publicly?

    Am I correct in thinking David Z did a video review of this polo? I was trying to find it the other day without success....if anyone can confirm if one was done that would be appreciated
