    Capital One MasterCardS didn't work. Visa didn't go through either. Guess it's time for debit card?

    Luigi has informed me to pay by bank transfer. Am I just filling out that form or do I turn it in to the bank? I’ve never paid that way before. Thanks for any tips!

    Hi in Australia banks don’t do transfers you need to use internet banking ( I asked my wife to do it)

    Do we have any further updates for the project?

  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,338MI6 Agent

    Luigi was off with covid hut is still finalising payments etc from each of us. I believe he is about complete now.

    Once all payments are through, which as ever has been challenging given TF's payment system acceptance, then the order will be placed. Luigi anticipated around 6-8 weeks for production. This obviously depends on covid surges etc though. Then shipments will start.

    I'd optimistically expect first orders arriving through July. The ultimate aim is to get the whole order wrapped before the Italian holidays in August.


    There are structural changes afoot within TF and Luigi stated no more projects can be considered after this for the foreseeable future (Polo / Scarf). Not a never but certainly not this year...

    I’m still trying to figure out how to do a bank transfer. Sorry for holding this up. I guess I need to go by with the paperwork?

    Question to my USA friends: I wanted to order all 5 ties, but as I understand I'll be getting hit by customs duties if it's over $800.

    If I did get all 5, or just any amount of merch greater than $800, how much would I be paying in duties/fees?

    Yes. Consssssiderably.
  • MikeG77MikeG77 Posts: 1,720MI6 Agent

    You're going to get hit for customs based on the entire order not the amount above $800. Regarding the amount I always figure that I'll be paying 10% to 15% in customs charges.

    FINALLY got my payment to go through!!!! Luigi must have the patience of a saint for all the trouble I must have caused! I’m so happy it’s finally paid for!

    I only got mine through last week... a massive thanks to Luigi.... for finding a work around with payments from Australia 🇦🇺 ... can't wait to get them

  • DieMrBondDieMrBond Posts: 29MI6 Agent

    Do we know how many total orders were placed and paid for? Cant wait to get them...

  • BondCrazyBondCrazy Posts: 46MI6 Agent

    Ditto, would be nice to know. Cant wait to get them again after so many years.

  • Westward_DriftWestward_Drift Posts: 2,923MI6 Agent

    Congrats to all who are getting them. I reluctantly decided to pass on the ties.

    The two I really wanted (Bolivia and PTS) were the ones ended up not being able to be 100% replicated. Then the trouble with paying put me off. Luigi offered to arrange a phone sale, but I take this as the universe's way of saying "Let it go."

  • 007JBDCMWR007JBDCMWR Posts: 2,338MI6 Agent

    Just waiting on Luigi to update me and then I'll pop up an update...

    Same here. The Bolivia tie was the one I've wanted for the longest time. But I didn't feel comfortable paying full price for a tie that wasn't screen accurate. Based on the pictures I saw, the recreation wasn't close enough to warrant the cost.

    Has anyone else been contacted by Luigi saying payment has not been received? He contacted me a month ago and I then sent copy of of the Axerve confirmation. Then again today he says "I’ve double checked with my bank and your payment never entered in our system. I’m aware that the bank gave you the authorization but finally never landed in ours.". So I just sent along the screen shot from my AMEX card showing payment to Tom Ford. Not sure what else I can do.

    UPDATE: Issue was resolved. TF accounting finally found the payment.

    Speak to your Bank as they should be able trace it from origin to receipt and confirm

    too bad. Looks like I missed out. I sent in the form and checked with Luigi but he never contacted me about payment

    Still not heard from him but until production begins it's definitely not too late.

    Drop him an email

    Morning all.

    Update.

    Spoken to Luigi. He is just back today after some extended time off due to holiday and covid.

    The order was placed a while ago (he generally over orders to account for any errors or issues).

    4 complete sets of the 5 ties have arrived, just awaiting the Bolivia style tie order to arrive

    He has a lot of work to catch up so can't say how quickly we will start to see orders being despatched but the postage process WILL start soon.

    👍🍸
