Tom Ford can do no wrong. Born to a southern belle who believed in wearing her Sunday best everyday, Ford has style in his blood. The designer, who graduated from Parsons with a degree in interior architecture and had a brief stint at Perry Ellis, is known as the man who saved Gucci and in 2008 received a CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year Award for his eponymous line, Tom Ford.
The man knows fashion and knows how to create an amazing suit, so it should be no surprise that he is one of the best dressed men in fashion. Ford signature look is a dark suit, tailored to fit perfectly. Ford isn’t afraid to be bold either, often throwing together patterns. He finishes his look with the perfect amount of accessories, usually one or two pieces that bring the look together.
Ford is the perfect gentleman. He’s the type of man who probably wears a smoking jacket around his house and spends evenings in his library drinking scotch or brandy. Ford is the epitome of a suave, sophisticated man who exudes sex appeal and confidence. So it’s no surprise that he was commissioned to create Daniel Craig’s wardrobe in the most recent Bond film.
Men could take a lesson or two from Mr. Ford. Every once in a while a lady likes to see a well-dressed man.Tags: CFDA, designer, fashion, men, menswear, Tom Ford
