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

MAJOR UPDATE:

    I spoke to Luigi about the challenge of 80 units and he in turn spoke to his people.  They have agreed to lower the minimum to 55 units which makes this project MUCH MORE LIKELY.  However, based on the lower units the price has increased to 505 Euros.  That's a difference of 60 Euros.  I understand we may lose a few of you based on this but I think 80 units is not feasible based on the discrete nature to which we are asked to handle this project.  I have updated the content of my first post to reflect this new information.  Easiest way to handle this new tidbit is for those that want OUT (and we promise, no one will be thought of any less if they do) because of the price increase, please state so so we can update the list accordingly.  Thank you, gents...and thanks for your patience.

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

I was starting to consider getting one if the numbers were close to 80 and needed a boost to get this done, but with the price increase that's now another almost $100 CDN extra so I am definitely out now.  ajb007/frown

Good luck guys. You should have no problem making the new quota.

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

I'm usually not one for defending the decisions of major corporations, but Tom Ford could have spiked the price up in the ballpark of the spectre polo $960. They know the interest is there. It's not cheap to start producing a product especially one in a limited run. (60 euro increase isn't that bad) they significantly lowered the minimum.

If no one drops out, we just went from 50% there to 80% there.
Good work Mantis  ajb007/martini

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

David if I may ask a few clarifying questions?

1. If we reach 55 could we leave the project open (people willing) for a defined time period to see if we could get the extra 25 people/units so that we could get the original price?

2. Delivery, I know that the cost of delivery will differ depending on where you live in the world (I live in the UK), but based on the Harrington project what were the costs of delivery? (David I know you can't answer that question alone, but others might be able to?) Would an option be to have it sent to the nearest Tom Ford store for collection, like you would for a bespoke item?

Thank you David for taking time to pursue this project, although I wasn't involved with the Harrington project I did keep an eye on it and know how difficult it got, so I am very appreciative that you decided to head this one.

Many thanks

Daniel

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

If we hit 80 (miracles do happen) then I am sure they will adjust price.  That being said tho', once we hit 55 people we will begin the process of connecting with Luigi for payment.  That usually doesn't take long and then we are off to the races.

Mantis,

any chance of getting a size chart? and perhaps pictures of a prototype?

I believe that would still respect Tom Ford's wishes pertaining to discretion.

Sorry a bit late to the party, just had a big move abroad to contend with.  Like Ross I will consider buying another polo if exchange rate picks up ajb007/rolleyes

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

I'm going to have to back out of this one gents. Hurricane Irma hit us pretty hard, and it could be a while before I get the funds back up. If this runs into the December timeframe, I would likely jump back in, but I don't want to falsely project. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

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

Was this project cancelled?

Not sure how you can stir up interest for something you're "not allowed" to stir up interest for. The whole thing doesn't make any sense. Tom Ford advertises all the time, but this project has to be "hush, hush." Only shady things are done in secret so what are they trying to hide?

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

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

It doesn't. That's why I'm asking. This thread hasn't had any movement in 2 weeks. I read that you're not allowed to advertise or promote this project so I'm just wondering where the 15 needed orders are going to come from?

Just seems like it's quite out of reach. And with the price increase, I'm sure more people from the original list will drop out, as that seems to happen with every project.

Has Tom Ford at least given a reason they don't want you to V log or promote this at all? Just seems strange to me.

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

I think individuals can promote or discuss it however they like...The Bond Experience has become a bit of an entity and, at least to Tom Ford, a little too influential to be under the radar.  A complement on one hand, and a limitation on the other....
