Tom Ford, Brioni and English bespoke tailors all make high quality suits that should last decades if the cloth is hardy enough. This means not getting suits in delicate high super number wools or cashmere. The handwork on Brioni is the best of any suit James Bond has worn. But Tom Ford suits also feature excellent handwork and may be better than the handwork on many Savile Row suits. Savile Row tailors have been paying more attention to finer points of quality in recent years to compete with the type of craftsmanship found in Italy, but the British were never known for the same attention to detail as the Italian are. The attention put into Tom Ford, Brioni and English bespoke suits is all on high enough a level that it should not be a deciding factor when choosing between them.

Just curious, but which English tailors do you believe are more Italian than English? Douglas Hayward was one of the more Italian-inspired of the English tailors based on the lighter construction of his suits, but he still tailored an English style.

Great article Matt, as usual ! And there is no one absolute, general answer, of course, as you pointed it out. I choose Brioni myself because their house style was consistent and looked great on Pierce Brosnan. English bespoke is great too, but there are too many options. However, I think the typical Brioni / Roman cut of the 1990s is no more present on their suits anymore. Matt, it would be very appreciated if you could point out some ready-to-wear brands which do offer suits with a similar Roman cut nowadays -at least, with structured, imposing shoulders. It looks like the Italian suits nowadays have all became softer, lighter, and, well, less imposing.

I would be interested in your thoughts on British made-to-measure, specifically the Anthony Sinclair M2M Conduit cut suits offered by Mason and Sons. Although I have no personal experience with Mason and Sons, this option seems to offer a more price conscious alternative to English Bespoke, while still maintaining the desired style and fit. I wonder how the quality of worksmanship of these Anthony Sinclair M2M suits compares to that of Brioni or Tom Ford?

Matt, would you please give us your opinion of the Oxxford suit in terms of quality of workmanship compared to the high end Italian makers and English bespoke? Several tailors I know have been very complementary of the quality and amount of hand work in the Oxxford suit compared to Italian makers such as Kiton and Attolini as well as English bespoke tailors. Also, please discuss your view of the fit and silhouette of the Oxxford suit.

Regarding your comment about number of buttons, I feel like everyone rocks a two button equally well. I am also slender-framed and tall. Remember that Pierce wore a couple two button suits as James Bond, too.

Ford began studying interior architecture at The New School's art and design college, Parsons The New School for Design, in New York City.[13] He kept visiting Studio 54, where he realized he was gay.[14][15] The club's disco-era glamor would be a major influence on his later designs.[16][17] Before his last year at New School, Ford spent a year and a half in Paris, where he worked as an intern in Chloé's press office, inspiring his interest in fashion.[18][19] He spent his final year at The New School studying fashion, but graduated with a degree in architecture.[19][20]

In 1988, Ford moved to Perry Ellis,[21] where he knew both Robert McDonald, the company's president, and Marc Jacobs, its designer, socially. He worked at the company for two years, but grew tired of working in American fashion. In a later interview with The New York Times, he commented, "If I was ever going to become a good designer, I had to leave America. My own culture was inhibiting me. Too much style in America is tacky. It's looked down upon to be too stylish. Europeans, however, appreciate style."[22][23]

In 2013, Ford was mentioned in Justin Timberlake's song "Suit & Tie", which was a collaboration with Jay-Z.[45][46] Ford created the suits, shirts, and accessories for the Grammy winning "Suit & Tie" music video.[42] He went on to dress Timberlake's 20/20 Experience World Tour, designing over 600 pieces for the tour.[47][48] The same year, Jay-Z released a song titled "Tom Ford" with "Tom Ford" rapped numerous times within the song.[49][50] Ford responded that he was flattered and "it means that one has really penetrated and made an impact on popular culture."[51] Following the song's release, Ford received a huge spike in online search engine queries.[42][52] The song would go on to sell over a million copies and become certified platinum.[53]

Ford married Richard Buckley in 2014, a journalist and former editor in chief of Vogue Hommes International; they had been in a relationship since meeting in 1986.[75] The couple have a son[27] who was born in September 2012 via gestational surrogate.[76] The family lived in Italy, where Ford moved from New York in 1990,[77] and in London for 17 years.[11] They lived in his residences in New York, Los Angeles, Santa Fe,[11] and London.[78] Ford and Buckley have owned smooth fox terriers, which have appeared on the runway and in his film A Single Man.[79] Ford also has two nephews and a niece, the children of his sister Jennifer.[80]

As the former creative director for Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, Ford is one of the most prominent and influential designers of the 21st century thus far. His suits and sport coats are generally designed with a heavily structured shoulder and he was an early adopter of the inevitable return to wide lapels.

As you might have suspected, in addition to finding suit construction interesting, I also have an ulterior motive for doing these tear-downs: My fully canvassed suits, made in Italy, that retail at $1,495 have superior construction to Tom Ford's (I expected them to be about the same) and thoroughly surpass the quality of the made in Mexico Z Zegna at the same price. So if you subtract out prestige, then Tom Ford and the like are a pretty poor value.

When I was in London and was able to be on location for No Time to Die and got to say good morning to Daniel Craig in total happenstance. The whole connection it was wild. I saw him in this incredible Tom Ford suit. And the stunt guys in these incredible suits. An Absolute Bondish look.

I believe that Ombre Leather is the best marketing decision Tom Ford has ever done. First, Ombre Leather 2016 was very close to Tuscan Leather with the same price point, and it got discontinued in favor of placing it into a new release as a Signature line fragrance for an affordable price.

The compositions are tight, blended to perfection, and punch way above the price point. I recommend starting with this collection if you are new to the brand to get the gist and idea of where to go next.

FRESHFresh family is the most crowd-pleasing of them all, and the only one that equally leans both on the masculine and feminine side. Perfumes have never been more affordable and accessible than they are now, and fresh scents are dominating the market since the early 90s.

Tom Ford is a designer perfume brand that offers affordable and expensive perfumes. Signature collection targeted to a more mainstream audience, while Private Blend line is more expensive with higher-quality ingredients and is loved by fragrance enthusiasts.

I must be out of my mind.I've seen a few Tom Ford suits around which made me curious. We've seen them on celebrities, whom I assume had been fitted by people who knew what they were doing. But then I started seeing them on "regular" people and the shape had me intrigued. I noticed a shape and a cleanliness to the chest that I'm not used to seeing in RTW. IN fact, a degree of shaping in the whole garment that I'm not used to seeing in RTW. I was in Milan a few weeks ago so I stopped in to the shop there are tried some stuff on. First I tried their Base A, which is quite fitted, but I was told it was the larger of the two basic fits. ORLY? Then they showed me the Base B which, if you're not built like Cristiano Ronaldo, you can just forget. But then, if you are built like Ronaldo, I don't know of another suit being offered off-the-rack which is shaped quite like this. Some people like their tailoring to look a little rumpled. I prefer mine to look clean. I like Brioni because it is a clean garment. Others prefer Kiton because it looks a little soft, a little easy. Well, these garments definitely fall into the clean category. Very clean. Made by the Zegna Couture factory, whose work we examined in a previous post there are some similarities and some differences. And for those who think that TF is just rebranded mainline Zegna, you are quite wrong. I see nothing inspiring in mainline Zegna. I was, however, moved to want to get my hands on one of these TF suits to have a better look. A SF poster announced that there were some TF suits at Century 21 so I asked him to give me a call if he went back to the store. Which he promptly did. His instructions were this- get me a suit in a check so I can study how they shape it. Got it. And he did. So there I was Paypaling far more money than I had ever imagined I would spend on something I was about to tear apart and I wondered if maybe this habit of mine was getting out of hand. Oh well. So a few days later a parcel came, and then out came the scissors. And thanks to Angelicboris for making the trip to C21.Before I started cutting, I wanted to get the draft down. I measured the check in the cloth and then drew a grid on paper in the same dimensions. Panel by panel I used the grid to reproduce the pattern pieces as they were before sewing; if I were merely to measure the dimensions of the seams and the panels, I would not get an accurate representation because of the stretching and shrinking going on during the shaping of the garment. By getting an accurate draft down, I can then measure seams and compare them to the paper- the shoulder seam, for example, measured 6 5/8" on paper but the garment was 7", telling me that they stretched the shoulder 3/8" to hinge it forward. Stuff like that. Do I hear snoring? Sorry.The cloth is a fantastic wool/cashmere blend which has the stoutness of an English cloth and the refined finish of an Italian cloth. I would be happy to spend my life sewing cloth like this.Some of the cosmetics that stand out.These "milanese" buttonholes baffle me. They are worked, by hand, around a length of gimp with no visible knot on top. A real work of art which I haven't the first clue how to reproduce. Next time I am in Italy I will find someone to teach me. Unless someone reading would care to enlighten me?The barchetta breast pocket is not only curved and blunted, as in the southern Italian style, but the corner is rounded right off. It is also distinctly Italian, the only such detail in a garment which otherwise looks very much inspired by Savile Row.The undercollar is made from self-cloth, and has been felled and finished by hand.The trouser has side adjusters rather than belt loops (though the loops are included in the pocket)And this kind of waistband finishing is very reminiscent of Savile Row tailoringThe shoulder on a TF is usually pretty imposing so I was surprised to find a very thin amount of wadding in the sleeve and a pad which is not very thick.No surprises here- pad stitching by automated machine.Then I got into the coat front itself- the layers of canvas down the front and in the chest and shoulder. It's a rather complex configuration which I will get into more detail about later. Of particular interest, though, was that the main haircloth piece extends right down to the waist level, and a second piece stops four inches above, with a rather deep chest dart. This is what is giving the polished-marble appearance to the chest. A number of other pieces of different types of canvas are staggered through the chest and shoulder and are going to require further study. Another point of interest to tailors is that the haircloth is trimmed out of the seam allowance in the top 4 or 5 inches of the shoulder so rather than supporting the rope, it is soft and collapses a little. The whole top of the sleeve, though clean, is very soft to the touch. My one quibble about this suit is that despite all the work that went into it, and despite the magnificent hand-made buttonhole on the lapel, the buttonholes on the front are done by machine! Not saying that machine buttonholes are bad, but it's just so in comprehensible when the one on the lapel is so lovely! And Zegna Couture makes one of the nicest hand-made buttonholes on the RTW market on their own production so why not on the TF? I think everyone else at this price point has hand-made buttonholes so why these machine-made ones? I remember hearing something about problems with capacity- they didn't have enough skilled people to make enough buttonholes, but come on. Train them. Go get a few in the south, where they are all over the place. I don't know. Anything other than these machine-made ones!Breathe, Jeffery.What is it about buttonholes that makes me hyperventilate?Tom Ford's styling is not for everyone. His fit even less so. But if you like the bold styling, are looking for a suit with gobs of shaping (and are slim enough to fit into it) without going bespoke, there is nothing else, that I know of, on the market like it so go try one on. But be prepared. They are not cheap.EDITI just noticed this is post number 100. Cool.ANOTHER EDITI am reposting a comment left in the comments section:Daniel said:I could not tell from the photo, but I have a question about the trousers. I am a theatrical tailor, and worked on an opera Tom Ford designed a year or so ago. One detail he had us do is to bring the side seam forward on the back part, into what would be the pocket facing on a slightly slanted pocket. At the hip, the side seam would appear below the pocket, but would be flat through the pocket. He claimed it made a better line when sitting around that part of the hip. Did you notice this on his trousers in the store, or do other makers use this detail as well?Well, as a matter of fact, I did notice this, and my first thought about it was that it was, indeed a way to get the pocket to lie more flat, but I thought it was more to do with standing than sitting. You can see a pronounced forward slant hereThis is not to say that the theory actually works.The shoulder seam is also slanted backward, like A&S and many Neapolitan tailors do. My (partially unsubstantiated) opinion is that this does not, actually, help, and I do feel some pressure on the shoulder points when wearing the coat, however I can not definitively state that this pressure is due to the slant of the shoulder seam and not some other element. But back to the trousers. It is an intriguing idea, one which has the consequence of skewing the plaid matching toward the top, but if it works,I would be willing to forgive it. I'm not sure if anybody else does this, though I saw a few trousers in Italy which make me suspect that they are not alone, but I did not look close enough to say for sure. I will definitely be paying more attention in the future; anyone with pictures of the side seam on checked trousers from Mabitex or Incotex would be kind to point them out. 041b061a72
