I would appreciate some additional opinions on the Bolivia tie.  For years I have thought it skews towards the silver side, but this picture makes it look VERY gold which I am not very keen on.

ajb007/confused I've never seen a photo in which it appeared silver - it's a champagne gold colour which tones with Bond's brown suit. Silver and brown would look very misjudged. And bearing in mind that TF have matched the original fabrics, these ties accurately reflect the colours of the originals.

Definitely champagne rather than a true gold

Think PopGuru may be referring to images like the following. Because of the lighting on Bond films there can often be shade confusions with a lot of clothes I feel. But it is a champagne tie.

Yeah true  ajb007/lol happens a lot with varying shots from set against the final shots. All the above pictures look like different tones and shades.

Re: Tom Ford Quantum Of Solace Ties Special Order - major update post 132

Morning all
Ive been receiving quite a few pm's so just want to clarify where we are at...
With Covid interrupting the project, Luigi and the design team needed to effectively restart the fabric id process. Several manufacturers had ceased production and certain yarns were just gone.
We are about there but still waiting to nail down the London tie.
This is what will happen next (but I cant give a definutive timescale as its out of my hands).
And promise I will update this thread immediately as I get developments.

To happen-
Final confirmation will be received of all tie designs.
Luigi and I will pull together the qos booklet.
I will send Luigi everyones email and expected ties reqd.
Luigi will email out the booklet and order process.

Be patient guys. It takes time. Now more than ever.

It is going to happen as both me, Luigi and Tom Ford have invested significant time, effort and money to get to this point.

M,

I think i can speak for everyone in saying that we appreciate everything you've done regarding this project and waiting a few months more isn't going to kill us! Please pass along a message to Luigi and his team as well expressing our gratitude for all the time and effort that they have put into getting this project completed! Maybe with a little more time they can get a 100% match on the PTS tie which is my favorite ajb007/biggrin

Thanks,

Mike

Re: Tom Ford Quantum Of Solace Ties Special Order - major update post 132

Hi Everyone,

Firstly, I would like to thank 007JBDCMWR efforts in actively pursuing the recreation of the TF ties in QOS with Luigi and the Team over at TF. Unquestionably, for me the best suiting to grace the screen thus far for DC era of Bond.

I have an open question which I am sure someone on the forum could kindly answer.

During the theatrical run of QOS, Sony showcased a Sony Bravia ad staring DC (it appeared before the movie). The suit (and more specifically the tie) to me appear to be the same as that seen attending Greene’s party.

Is this true? Or is it a totally different tie?

Many thanks in advance to any would be verifiers.

Kind regards,

Zafran

Hi Zaf,

Yes it's the same tie as in post 231 above, the navy suit and blue/silver Greene Party tie. Somewhere I have a close up poster from the Sony/O2 (I think) launch in 2008, if I can find it I'll post a pic.

Hi Charmed & Dangerous,

Thank you so much for your quick response. I always suspected it was same tie and suit, but one can never be too sure with Bond clothing (details are not always picked up on camera - even a full HD Bravia ad!).

Many thanks for confirming.

I recall a guy in the cinema exclaiming "that is a nice suit" in the row in front of me as the ad played back in 2008 - I believe that still rings true today.

Hope you have a great weekend,

Zaf
