    If it was actually used in the movie then maybe bond collectors would pay that price. But if not im sure you can walk into TF and find one that looks similar or maybe even the exact pattern and pick up 7 more with cash to spare haha

    "This is probably one of the most incredible, sought after, historic (if you're a Bond fan), impossible to get tie in the world. It is the tie of a lifetime. It breaks my heart to sell it"

    A bit dramatic. Nice tie but charvet have many that look the same.

    That guy took the thing out of the blister pack! It is now not mint, and no tags! Not collectable any more!
    Anyway, the things that are sold as for collectable value, tend not to have any collectable value.

    I sold one of these last year for $500 on a no reserve auction. Bond people are nuts for this stuff.

    It's definitely not worth the asking price, even if it is a beautiful, high quality Tom Ford tie. Even if this exact tie being auctioned was worn by Daniel Craig during shooting (which it wasn't), I still have a hard time believing it'd be worth almost $2,000. I pity anyone unfortunate enough to buy it for that price.

    Besides, why pay 1.8 grand when I can get a 99% identical tie for only $60, including shipping? http://www.magnoliclothiers.com/quantum-tie-ties-p-287.html

    EDIT: I also have a hard time believing that only 10 of these ties exist worldwide, as the seller claims.

    At these prices, your not paying for Tom Ford's craftsmanship. Your actually paying for Daniel Craig's neck sweat...

    Not really, because the original one was cut up to make swatches. You are actually only paying for apparently a "few" replicas that were made so you can look like Craig in the movie :foo: (wish this chinese man has a tie knot under this face)

    All that info in the listing description yet no mention of tie length/width. What sort of operation is this, Cladmen?

    I guess if you are nuts for Bond, it doesn't really matter.

    Hober sells this exact tie for less than 100 bucks. Wore it at my wedding. ;)

    Louis Vuitton also has a similar tie but with a slightly bigger pattern
