    Word of advice, take a head count, I was startled to find out how many have backed out of the polo project

    since the pandemic and lockdowns. Hopefully the numbers are still there for this one.

  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,147MI6 Agent

    I'm spending some time today pulling the spreadsheet together to send to Luigi.

    To MrE's point, I have a few members that have altered / reduced their orders. Which is of course absolutely fine

    Even so we are still well above the minimum numbers per tie.

    And obviously once the "Order detail" email is received from Luigi, then you still can review your choice.

    What I may do, as I do think some members check here infrequently, is email everyone directly myself as I am lucky with this project to have gathered emails.

    Hello everyone

    So finally a major update.

    The 5 tie samples (mini samples pictured above in the thread) are produced and Luigi is now in the process of confirming the required minimum order for each tie and the price point . This should be finalised in the next week or so.

    Then I will be sending everyone's email addresses and indicated tie order to him directly.

    Luigi will then email the order info (and some tie details / brochure).

    All 5 will be marketed as "recreations" and as this is a special order it's a no returns order. As has been detailed in the thread, but I want to re-emphasize, 3 are in effect replicas, but 2 ties (PTS and Bolivia) have slight colour shade differences.

    Again as detailed earlier, these will be as good as we will ever get barring getting your hands on a rare £1000 original. The reason is not just fabric colour, but shade, texture, sheen of the fabrics and also the handmade weave. These ties notoriously pick up angle and degree of light ridiculously and change colour.

    But I must stress, please be happy with what you order before placing.

    Timings -

    Order emails sent in a couple of weeks hopefully, but I will update on here once we are sending them, these will come directly from Luigi.

    The window for ordering will be open for a couple of weeks.

    Once the window closes production is around 10 weeks.

    Deliveries likely to commence early in the new year.


    UK members must also remember Brexit does impact us. I have discussed options with Luigi and think the safest and simplest way is we each deal directly with TF Milan. But if anyone UK based has any ideas I'm happy to see if there is another solution.


    I must also say a huge thank you to Craig and Ross. All 5 original ties have been away now for 2 years! Soon to return but a huge thank you from us all.


    So here we go guys. I have indicated orders for 315 ties, so let's hope most have remained in.

    As Luigi has a day job please keep everything simple and direct questions to me rather than him if possible.

    Cheers all.

    *adds new Brexit crime to list*

    But more importantly... 👏👏👏 well done all.

    M thanks for the update!

    I will add some pictures later of the samples edges as this gives some good insights into the fabrics in each tie.

    The London tie has jumped to my favourite. A mix of plum black and white silver dots. Beautiful and surprising

    Which was your previous favorite? When I looked online the tie looks black with white dots but imagine the colors are more noticable based on the lighting conditions.

  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,147MI6 Agent

    Bolivia... But the detail and intricacy of the London tie floats my boat.

    When I first saw QoS I thought it was a grey tie... Not really sure what colour I'd call it. A dark augergine or plum, mixed with black and small white dots.

    Over the many calls and back and forth decisions, it just grew on me 🍸

    To the naked eye it's black, but under close up bright artificial light you will see the colour changes

    Augergine.....hmmm I learned about a new color today. I can't wait to see the samples!

  • MikeG77MikeG77 Posts: 1,585MI6 Agent

    Ok I'm definitely seeing the purple when the light hits it. It's a very classy looking tie 😁

  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,147MI6 Agent

    Sure Luigi would think we'd lost the plot, going from ties to fruit.... But here goes. Feast on Aubergine...

    But you see kinda the colour that the weaves produce. In some light.

    LOL I can imagine Luigi is rolling his eyes at the comparison. I've never been an eggplant fan I've seen sports cars with that color and I've always like it.

    I think Luigi will be making quite the commission on this project (315 ties!).

    I would love to see something similar with the QOS suits (should be much easier to replicate - but also costlier).

  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,147MI6 Agent

    Ha, I've already planted the seed re the brown suit... I think Zulfi has one but a battle re the fabric and getting it done. Long gone obviously

    But my favourite suit of DC era
