Youíll pick up on Fordís domineering influences

Tom Ford menís: that constant balance of statement, of style, of the classics and of the modern.
These are perhaps the ideas which best describe a Tom Ford menís collection if one wants to avoid more ambiguous terms such as dapper.Tom Ford nails luxury. He creates strong looks which flatter a manís shape. He plays to the slow (r)evolution of modern suit trends, and he does it all without ever shying away from his grander vision: suits in bold fabrics, casual pieces that do more than attract attention.
These notions explain the essence of Fordís previous menís visions and his interpretation of autumn 2013 as well. But you wonít find any overly James Bond looks amongst this no matter how synonymous he now is with dressing the fictional secret agent.† While elements, such as the notched lapels, tie-in to the styles that abounded in Skyfall, this collection sits as something far more Ford.†Bond is a suit. Ford has flair. That flair comes in damier check, three pieces and roll neck knitwear.
It also comes in casual looks that are typically Ford Ė luxurious though, at times, designed for the newly minted and their holidays at Gstaad.†
Youíll pick up on Fordís domineering influences: slim cuts, masculine chests, the return of the shawl tuxedo and a gent who balances the dapper with the sexual.
