Def. not trying to discourage anyone - I want one! - but that's the reality being weighed with the $600 price (and that's pre shipping and fees, no?).

This is to say: a discussion about possibly finding a more attractive price-to-#-of-units balance might be the best way of making sure this project actually happens. It's been lingering for a long time.

Oh, trust me, I get it. And I'm sure it annoyed just about everyone on here that the price went up like it did.
The reality of the matter is that we didn't hit minimum and who knows how many people have dropped out.

I personally think we would be better off aiming for 80 at the lower price point, as long as it's not stepping on the Bond Experience's toes, I think we should make a new list.
Unless that offer is no longer on the table with Luigi....

Re: Quantum of Solace Bond Tom Ford Polo: Update in Post 440

I'm interested to throw my name on the list for this long sought-after polo if we can go for higher numbers and drive the price down.

Re: Quantum of Solace Bond Tom Ford Polo: Update in Post 440

I'm with Mr E on this one, been wanting this for ages and the amount of wear I would get from it, totally out ways the cost for me.
Plus I'll have a rare item of clothing that may never be repeated.
Hoping we can do a new list or 1 day Luigi emails me that my card was debited.  ajb007/bond

Agreed. If it helps with numbers and reducing the final price i would add to the list as well. I cant stretch to 600 but if  we can get the price down a bit then that would sway me a bit and potentially others.

Re: Quantum of Solace Bond Tom Ford Polo: Update in Post 440

To offer some clarity, the price and minimum has changed twice in the duration of this project.
Here are the prices and minimums that tf have given us including the original.

1.) 445 euros, 500 US dollars, 401 pounds  (80 units)
2.) 505 euros, 568 US dollars, 455 pounds (55 units)
3.) 670 euros, 753 US dollars, 604 pounds  (45 units)


Personally...I think aiming for number 2 would be the best chance at making it happen.

If anyone has any thoughts, feel free to chime in. It's nice to see some movement on this thread.

Re: Quantum of Solace Bond Tom Ford Polo: Update in Post 440

fellas I would not be surprised if the price goes up for the mere fact its been so long since this project was last active.

If the price has gone up from the last one quoted, we might as well stick a fork in this project because at that point, it's done.
I'm sure the Bond Experience will update us soon if we can aim for higher numbers/lower price etc.

Re: Quantum of Solace Bond Tom Ford Polo: Update in Post 440

Had a little reread of the whole thread and forgot we were so close to success with it (it looks like only about 6 or 7 polos short) even with the increased price!

If that is true then we have hit the numbers required for the project to be finalized. The real question is if it is even still on the table. Hopefully the Bond Experience, or Luigi can give us some news, whether good or bad.

Keep in mind Tango73 is looking at 2 and I already submitted my details for 2 shirts so we are looking at 51 units total and that's assuming no one backs out!

Only 6 shirt off—55 should definitely be doable! Buuuuuut hopefully TF are still onboard after all this time and if they are, hopefully they won't raise the price per unit...also hopefully everyone on that list are still onboard (haven't seen a few of them around these parts for a while).

Re: Quantum of Solace Bond Tom Ford Polo: Update in Post 440

Fellas...it looks like we are starting over from scratch. I just received a correspondence from the Bond Experience, and what David had to say makes perfect sense. This was his response to my question if this project can still happen.

The Bond Experience wrote:

I think we would need to get a role call going on people who previously raised there hands....yes, a few new people say they want in, but what about the people on the list that haven't spoken in years.  Regardless I can reach out to TF and see if they would still entertain.

I'm going to copy and paste the 3 quantity minimums and 3 different prices that we've been given, and get a role call going. Now to avoid a lot of confusion and unnecessary revisions and steps, I believe that it's the popular opinion lately to aim for the middle number, i.e. better price and feasible quantity. If we go over and beyond, we can adjust accordingly. If we fall short, we can adjust at that point as well. Just say that you're in and for how many and I'll update the list. Thanks. Hope we can still make this one happen.  ajb007/smile

It was a bit of a chore, but I managed to e-mail every single person on the original list.... I need a drink.

The only member who couldn't have an e-mail delivered to was "Glenn Gervot" I went off the list so maybe it's a misspelling, or perhaps that member is no longer here.

Correction: I did not e-mail MikeG77, because he beat me to the punch and put his name on the list before I could. Apparently he wants this polo as badly as I do haha

I gave it the best push I could guys. Hopefully something comes of it.  ajb007/martini
