    The total order ended up at 244 ties 👍.

    From the list of confirmed orders only a couple of members didn't follow through to completion, I know the reasons for both and was not a simple of case of simply dropping out and both communicated with Luigi...

    Having had some very detailed pictures -

    Greene Kazan London are Bob on and absolutely stunning TF level of manufacture. The plum/purply tone weaved beneath the London Tie in close up makes it so unique...


    PTS looks brilliant. Only an expert would notice any difference and would have to be side by side to original in superb lighting up close. TF done a great job to get it 99.9% perfect.

    Just waiting for Bolivia ties to land at Milan office.

    Thanks M.... they look amazing and can't wait

  • writingsonthewallwritingsonthewall SpainPosts: 394MI6 Agent

    This is smashing news. Can't wait for them to arrive, even if I ended up passing on the Bolivia tie (still hoping some miracle will happen and a closer replica can be made sometime in the far future).

    I know TF special projects will be put on hold after this one, do we have an estimate on when (or worse, whether) they will be authorised again? Thanks.

    No real idea. They are restructuring Retail / Manufacturing internally, so my reading from what I can understand is Luigi et al don't know what roles or the hierarchy will look like or who will make decisions

    Once it's completed later in the year then we may know...

    We have been really fortunate that a company this huge actually is willing to help us as Bond fans, most won't. Whilst the orders have generated some good sales it's a minutia to the TF empire income....

    Yes, I'm well aware this is a labour of love on many fronts. Luigi's (and YOUR) efforts are much appreciated.

    I think the summary re Projects future is, let's just wait and see. Will ultimately depend on who is left and what positions they are in.

    Fingers crossed 👍🍸

    This is a great point. Though, I would imagine that some buyers chose to direct their dollars toward TF, over other companies, because of their willingness to do things like this. I am glad it worked out for all those that were involved.

    You are right. Before 2008 / QoS I owned nothing TF...

    Now, on top of 5 suits, 8 shirts, numerous ties, cardigan, jeans, polos, jkt, ski jkt and a monster of a QoS coat etc etc. I have various pieces for Mrs R, a wide selection of his n hers fragrances, candles...

    No wonder I'm poor 😂

    And some great mates in TF London and Milan and on here thru tie and Harrington projects

    My Kazan Tom Ford tie arrived this afternoon. It looks amazing and I am very happy with it.

    Many thanks to Marc and Luigi for their great effort to make this happened.

  • saross029saross029 Posts: 35MI6 Agent

    Happy to hear that deliveries have started. I know the Bolivia tie was arriving last. Has it made it? Also is Luigi sending tracking info? Not a problem if not. I'll just keep a close eye out.

  • km1fdmkm1fdm USAPosts: 209MI6 Agent

    Just got a Fedex tracking today for US delivery. He's probably going through the list in batches. 🍸

  • BondCrazyBondCrazy Posts: 46MI6 Agent

    Ugh, that's not a good sign, they'll charge import/duties. I would have loved if he used Italian Post, it would get handed over to USPS, and no extra fees.

  • dwf76dwf76 Chesterfield, UKPosts: 38MI6 Agent

    Yeah, got my request for an extra £35 this morning following delivery. Still glad of putting the order in though.

  • Mr_JonesMr_Jones SloughPosts: 15MI6 Agent

    This is wonderful news that after much tieless work, effort and dedication from JBDCMWR that orders are starting to be full filled.

    I paid immediately via bank transfer and Luigi confirmed to me shortly after that payment had been received. I am yet to receive any notification from Fedex though.

    Fingers crossed that comes through soon.

    How many ties did you order if you don't mind me asking?

    Glad to hear that the ties are shipping out that being said I have not received any sort of tracking info but I hope I will soon!

    Hi guys.

    I messaged Luigi to check what was happening as not been updated.

    His reply -


    “We’ve receive 4 out of 5 colors.

    I started shipping the orders of the members that didn’t order the Bolivia tie.

    We should receive it in August, so any orders with that includes will be shipped then.

    For those wanting tracking please send an email to Luigi with your contact number for the courier."


    So basically if you email him your mobile you may get tracking info.

    Or perhaps your order will just appear ....

    Pics of ties in the wild would be nice too gents !!!

    Glad I changed from Bolivia to Kazan! Can't wait to see it arrive! I have a feeling it will be well worth it!

    Mark,

    Received my ties today!! Can't thank you enough for all of the work you put into this. And if someone lives in Milan, they should take Luigi out for drinks!

    Here are a couple of pictures

    No thanks needed buddy. They look great

    The Green Party and Kazan were personal goals as have full TF outfits to match. But the London tie became my favourite, took the most effort to get the slight shading just right...

    Pts came out excellent too.

    My original fave, Bolivia, was a disappointment we couldn't nail it 100% but maybe we can have another go one day.

    My big thanks go to the TF Corp, obviously Luigi. Then of course Craig and Ross for giving up their originals for soooo long
