    Unless I'm mistaken I though we ruled one of them out?

    The pictures were taken on high exposure etc to really highlight the difference.

    I can't remember if you're going for the Bolivia tie but in your opinion which is the closest one between #1 or #3?

    I am choosing Option 1, I think this is the closest from the selection provided IMO

    For England James?

    Thank you much! I agree with you, I like #3 the most

  • QuantumofSolangeQuantumofSolange UKPosts: 102MI6 Agent

    Hopefully this helps - tried to adjust for white balance. To my eyes, 1 would be the closest (a sort of yellow with hint of green), 2 least closest, 3 a sort of silvery version.

    Be interesting to know what Luigi thinks, or @007JBDCMWR

    Yes but my martini's still dry.
  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,338MI6 Agent

    I think No1 from what I've seen

    It has the nearest overall look

    This might be a stupid question but have they considered trying to combine options 1 and 2?

    I have no idea how the threads are mixed to make the ties so I don’t know if this is feasible or not/if I’m oversimplifying it.

    Yes but my martini's still dry.
  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,338MI6 Agent

    They have tried everything. It's one base coloured thread that they just can't find. When it's combined with the other 4 (I think from memory) it produces the colour sheen.

    Naively I didn't accept a tie couldn't be replicated. When I was privy to the 20 odd different samples produced I was blown away at how near impossible it is to get even close, such is the uniqueness of these particular ties...

    have happily thrown my lot in with the majority.

    I'm quite excited, not treating this as a QoS tie, for the phantom thread reasons above, but a piece - not quite unique - 'inspired by' Bond tie, which appeals to me - and in Luigi's video I can imagine being drawn to any of the three blends in store.


    As ever grateful for the amount of work and care going in to this.

    Has everybody gotten their pay link emails yet? I haven’t but I figure they are going out “in order” with who submitted theirs

  • welshboy78welshboy78 Posts: 10,125MI6 Agent

    I assumed he will send link after deadline (end of March)

    I paid via international bank transfer (GBP to EUR) the moment the email from Luigi came out. The account details were stated on the email. I haven’t received a confirmation of payment email from TF…. but I attached the receipt to my order form response. I hope I’ve done all what is required correctly 😐

  • NoTimeForPieNoTimeForPie Posts: 20MI6 Agent

    I’m using a card so it’s probably just the secondary links they’ll send later! I’m sure you did nothing wrong

  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,338MI6 Agent

    Re pymt either way is fine. Tfr can be done using the IBAN etc. If paying via card Luigi sends payment link once orders are closed.

    Receipts tend to come out paper based with the ties.

    Sometimes the old ways are the best !

    There has been a lot of discussion via email, but not sure there was an overwhelming consensus. As the originator of this project, will you be giving Luigi the go-ahead for this option? I support this choice and feel it's the most accurate to the original.

    Good evening Gents,

    Im having problems regards to registering which ties I would like to purchase.I’m not very savvy when it comes to computer/ tech stuff , so struggling to register the ties I’d like.Any help greatly appreciated.Cheers Fellas.

    Hi I’m the same . I wanted all 5 plus insurance and was non EU. For the Skyfall ( people might recall there was an issue originally with requirements for points of id) I used a credit with low limit and called ahead to let them know to expect an Italian purchase.

    this time I asked my wife to transfer through internet banking. We got a receipt which scanned ( actually asked my PA) the emailed Luigi with receipt and outlining what I’d bought and calculations .

    hope this of some help. Just a bit more complicated as no link to click on but well worth the effort cheers

    Hi All,

    Luigi's email on Friday gave us till today to decide which Bolivian tie option we'd go forward with.

    Was any decision made?

  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,338MI6 Agent

    I will update when I hear from Luigi. I messaged him today to confirm all ties order numbers and the option that will be taken re Bolivia

    I have a question. It is the 28th (my time) I was just now able to fill out the order form and get it sent back to Luigi. Do you think I still made the cut? Thank you.

  • writingsonthewallwritingsonthewall SpainPosts: 394MI6 Agent

    Just sent the filled out order form to Luigi and he promptly responded. I think we're still on time as the e-mail said "end of March", but should that not be the case, don't be like me and don't leave it for the last day...

    @Dex and @007Downunder, the simplest way is to print out the form, fill it manually (i.e., handwritten) and scan it (or take a picture), then send the scan/picture as an attachment to your answer to Luigi. He will get back to you if there are any details missing.

    That's fantastic that 170 orders have been received. It means all the hard work by everyone since the beginning has been worthwhile for all involved. That also means that if ever anyone is brave enough to tackle a new project, Tom Ford will hopefully be willing to do it. A lot of other labels could learn from this experience.

    I just emailed Luigi and chose #1 but I would back out if it was #2!

    I know where you keep your gun!
