Topic: Y-3 Quantum Of Solace Jacket Reissue

As requested a new post following the message I received from the Y-3 communication manager.
I'm now discussing directly with the Y-3 director Gregor Abenstein.
I hope he will agree to reissue the jacket.

Anybody interested by this jacket please post a message. We have to show them how deadly serious we are.

P.S. : A huge THANK YOU to Mr Di Vietri who's working for Adidas.

Typical I just pick up a used one after 10 years of waiting/ searching and this happens!

Ah heck what the hell I would be up for a new one as a 10th anniversary edition

Cheers  :007

P.S Good effort if you pull this off!

Cost was around $450 back in 2008 if I’m not mistaken?

I don't know about dollars but I paid 275 euros in 2008. Less expensive than USA.

If that pricepoint is still valid, I'll probably do 2 jackets.

Another thought: If they can do different colors of the jacket, it might be cool to get a SA one as well as a different color.  I suspect they'd only want to do the one color for ease of production, though.

Re: Y-3 Quantum Of Solace Jacket Reissue

I'd be interested as long as the price isn't outrageous!

Isn't Adidas a German company? The Euro value back in 2008 was €1 for every $1.47 so it was just over $404.

Re: Y-3 Quantum Of Solace Jacket Reissue

Yes you're right they are german. Sorry.

Re: Y-3 Quantum Of Solace Jacket Reissue

Timiblade,

Has the director that you were forwarded to said that he would certainly do a reissue if a certain number is met? And if so, what is that number? Otherwise we might be jumping the gun a bit, although I will say, I didn't expect it to even get this far, so props to you for your efforts. If you get an official word from the director of operations that will most likely help for everyone here to know that they can take this idea seriously and raise their hand if they want one.

My only concern is the timing...I would hate to see a lot of people drop out of Mantis' tf polo project to snag a y-3 instead. See if you can get an official word from y-3 before any more confusion or any derailment ensues.

Re: Y-3 Quantum Of Solace Jacket Reissue

If it's under $500 USD I'm definitely in.

17

Re: Y-3 Quantum Of Solace Jacket Reissue

I will keep everybody posted as soon as I have a message.
If there is a reissue it will take time, maybe months  .
Until then it cost nothing to post a message confirming that you are interested, this is not a pre-order.

We have to be optimistic.

Re: Y-3 Quantum Of Solace Jacket Reissue

I am in for a jacket. Fingers crossed.

I think there would be a few months between them at least should this get off the ground. Plus, while I would spend $400-500 on a jacket I truly wanted I can't financially or mentally justify spending that (more in fact) on a single polo shirt.  I really don't think it would be an either/or situation for many people.

I agree. The polo project is well underway - TF is starting their design process - whereas this one is still in the very early discussion stage. They'll be months between payments if this one works out. Also as the polo goes with the jacket, I'm sure people would want to grab both.

I would be in for a new one!

Maybe a list is in order to get idea / keep track of potential numbers?
