    It will depend on a lot of things. Fabric availability, design team time avbl, Luigi's own schedule

    Luigi usually opens ordering for 3-4 weeks. Then at least a couple of months for manufacture

    With a following wind they could be in hand by late summer.

    So this is what it will look like...once we get 1 more order, I will be contacting Mr. Zaritsky and Luigi, will be informing them that we did in fact get 40 confirmed orders, Luigi will then check and see if materials and fabric are still at the ready. We will get a final, official price quote. A sizing chart will be provided, timetable, and all those details. I would say that if this project is ever to happen, now seems to be it's last chance, it's looking good though! Again, thanks to everyone for their quick communication. And as 007JBDCMWR pointed out, the window to order should remain open for several weeks after we get the green light, so that any last-minuters can order one if they want to.

    Like I said, we're only 1 away, so my only question is who wants to be magic No.40?

    If no new person does not sign up by Monday, I will add one more to my order and we can this project moving forward.

    Sorry to pour cold water over this project, but the minimum is 50…not 40.

    Thank you for clarifying David

    Also. Given my tie experiences. Checking that the fabric is still available is the second major stumbling block. So many of the manufacturers didn't make it through Pandemic financial hits.

    80 is a huge number, over the last couple of years the project hasn't got near the required.

    Prices varied from $600-800 numbers depending...

    May be more now tho

    I was wondering how to go about sizing and the fit on this polo, I’ve never bought anything from Tom Ford and there are no boutiques in my country so I’m not really sure what size to go with. Would you go with the measurements on the official Tom Ford website?

    @The Bond Experience

    Thanks for the clarity, I hadn't heard from Luigi in awhile and I was going to present him with the possibility of 40, but if the last price quote was $600 @ 50, then I think we better aim for 50. We're actually not that far off, we had over 15 or so sign up in the last 2 weeks. So I say aim for 50.

    @Matt B I completely see your point, about trying to lower the price and aim for a higher number, but we did try that, this project is now what 4 years old? I don't even know anymore. With Daniel Craig exiting as Bond, and still riding on the fumes of No Time To Die, this really does seem like the one and only shot at making this project happen. If we keep the current momentum going we should easily hit 50 in a week or so. Let's give this one last collective push, at least we can't say that we didn't try. And to Matt B's point, if you haven't seen one in the flesh, it really is a unique polo.

    @estanford Thanks for being willing to step up if we are one order short!


  • @Matt B I put you on the list, if I misunderstood how many you want, feel free to correct me.

    Unless you people can get someone a little less dodgy to run this group buy, I’d consider it dead in the water if I were you.

  • Responded.


    This is David Zaritsky's project, not mine.

  • Yeah like…we wouldn’t be so eager to pony up thousands of dollars/Euros/Pounds if it were some random dude on the forum who was running this project . We aren’t that stupid, haha.

    Damn, we’ve been infiltrated by so many moles and duplicate moles that this place is beginning to look like @Higgins lawn 🤣

    If you could see the amount being looked into, it would shock you.

    Why was mine deleted?? I deleted a bunch of accounts because it wouldn’t send me the confirmation email until I made an account with a Yahoo email. Gmail, Apple and AOL didn’t work for some reason. Certainly not one of those spam accounts.

    I see after looking at the discussion that you were just being cautious and that MrE may be a… little bit questionable. Please don’t delete me again, I’m not another one of his accts

  • MikeG77MikeG77 Posts: 1,720MI6 Agent

    Honestly I'm getting immensely annoyed by this whole thing as we're all adults here or so I thought. There is no need for this kind of stuff to be occurring!

    You registered 4 accounts in one day - AFTER you had already y posted here - doesn’t stack up, make sense or even ring true…

    I posted something and then that account got deleted for some reason bc I had to start a new conversation with a seller bc I was confused about it, maybe I had done something wrong in a post? I had posted a WTB for something and then it got deleted
