    I thought of something that may (or may not) help anyone who is on the fence about this polo.
    A lot of the Tom Ford cotton pique polos are sold for around $480 in US retail stores. Online you can find them for sale for around $300 maybe a little less if they are on clearance. So at first, I was thinking $600+ is quite an increase for a 100% cotton polo.

    But then I remembered that most of the TF cotton polos have a "made in Portugal" tag hidden on the inside of them. And since Luigi is heading up this project from the Milan Store, I can only assume that (like the other projects, i.e. the morocco tie and the quantum harrington) this polo will also be "made in Italy". As most probably know, standard of quality, hands-on work, and cost of labor is a lot higher in Italy. So long story short, I don't know if this sweetens the deal for anyone, or pushes anyone over that fence, but just know, you will most likely be getting a much higher quality product than a typical TF polo.

    Thanks! I just pinged Luigi, just to wake this up a bit....and to see if 45 will do.

    Will that change the pricing?

    I regret to say I'll have to back out of this project at the moment. Funds have become a little tighter due to Tom Ford cutting hours for the first quarter of the year. However if funds open up or someone would like to trade for a BR peacoat in a small, let me know. Truly sorry about this.

    Not sure what it means but it usually takes about a week to do his response creation.

    Positive vibes about the polo...
    Hoping to have an update very shortly based on the 45 that have raised their hands....
  • Westward_DriftWestward_Drift Posts: 2,576MI6 Agent
    Mantis, regardless of whether Luigi can go ahead with 45, perhaps he could supply the sizing chart as it may help some people on the fence.
  • The Bond ExperienceThe Bond Experience Newtown, PAPosts: 5,477Quartermasters
    They wont be able to do the sizing chart until they have the polo in hand...they are borrowing one to create the most accurate version. But I have a feeling the 45 will be enough for us to go forward...I believe he is now just gathering the details...

    Saw this thread and decided to register. Please let me know if this project becomes a reality as I would be interested in this item. Thanks.
  • The Bond ExperienceThe Bond Experience Newtown, PAPosts: 5,477Quartermasters
    Gents,

    I have very good news. It looks as if this project is a GO from TF. This Friday I will be Fed Ex-ing my polo to TF in Milan to study, measure, etc. From there they will be able to determine pricing, timing etc. Then I will let everyone know how they proceed forward and then viola....we soon will have another piece from QoS re-awoken!

    Thanks for everyone's continued patience around this.

    Great news DZ and thank you for pursuing it...
    Be ready for the barrage of sizing questions!
    May be worth posting the measurements of your polo before it goes as a Base marker?
    Skewered, one sympathises...

    Ok, I'm in. I can't believe I am saying this but I missed out on the other reissue projects and I have a SA pair of the Haiti STA PREST so I figure; why not? :p

    How I need a pair of SA 7FAMK Mercers. ;)
    Sorry but that last hand... Nearly killed me.
