Tom Ford has it all. After working for the leading fashion houses of Europe (Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent) in the late 90s and hitting a rough patch in his career – claiming his hatred for ‘the fashion system’ – Ford is stronger than ever, with his brand becoming an epitome for excellence in men suits.
Shying away from the lights of catwalks for some time, Ford has concentrated on his forté. His unmatched attention to detail and strong work ethic shout from every suit labelled ‘Tom Ford’. More than ever, his clothes have become a choice for those standing in the spotlights of cameras. For stars like Brad Pitt and Hugh Jackman, Ford’s suits are the preferred choice at movie premières. Designing costumes for Mr. Bond himself in the upcoming film ‘Skyfall’, the Texan-born Ford indisputably owns a strong ‘Hollywood’ appeal. There is no one else who could make a man look more manly, wide-shouldered and radiant with confidence.
Now even those of us endowed with a less than perfect body shape and celebrity profile can tap into the genius of Tom Ford. A 2000 square foot Tom Ford boutique has just opened its doors at Selfridges London. Aside from bringing together the latest ready-to-wear collection, luggage, shoes and accessories, a made-to-measure suiting is also on offer. With details such as special BlackBerry pockets designed to preserve the line, curved rather than straight seams that mirror the shape of your arms and every suit sent to Italy to be specially tailored, the place offers nothing short of a sartorial perfection.
