    Spoo could probably get you that for half the price.

    Damn, that guy did his research, bought Tom Ford tie on ebay and flipped for profit. His feedback showed that he sold 4 already, $950-$1200.

    I think his claim is outrageous, only 10 made, but these tie can be easily found on ebay...

    I don't know if he's flipping them. How else would he have the swatch?

    The swatch is just a picture, could either found online, took a picture in store/hollywood display/even taken or bought from ebay, but this guy knows his stuff. Plus he is not providing the swatch with the sale.

    I have a Charvet tie that looks very much like this and I paid much less than $1800 for it. But it didn't appear in a Bond movie :(.

    This is the reaction of 99.99% of the population; but for those making 50 million plus dollars a year; $1800 is equivalent to someone making $50,000 buying a tie for $1.80 (if my math is correct). Being able to brag up your Tom Ford tie over your friend's Tom Ford tie would be worth that to some.

    Except i would bet that the people who bought it on ebay are not making 50 million per year.

    Unless they were looking for a Tom Ford / Bond prop tie?
