I completely agree. The positive reactions I've heard to the clothes say the tight fit is good because it accentuates Craig's muscular build. But doing so sacrifices all elegance. I've heard that Ford designed these suits for the film, though I'm sure at the direction of the film's costume designer. The perfectionist that Tom Ford is makes me really question his involvement, because a fit with so many creases and really poor drape is against what he believes in. It's the...
Yes, that is Tom Ford. And just as much the work of costume designer Jany Temime. It's the most Tom Ford-looking piece in the film, since the lapels are sufficiently wide (though still not wide by conventional standards) and I believe the trousers have pleats. Still, the jacket length and button stance need to come down an inch and the jacket is much too tight overall. Ford likes a close cut, but still a neat cut. This cut is the decision of Temime, not Ford. Just look at...
That is not appropriate. The waistcoat should have 5 or 6 buttons, with 6 being the most traditional. Both would have about the same button stance.
Did they redo your shirt?
I don't have experience with MyTailor or Nialma, but Modern Tailor has really stiff fusing in the collar and cuffs, and that's not even with selecting the stiff option.
Is this shirt for your girlfriend? Then if you like her forearms get a 3/4 sleeve.
You're right that flannel or tweed would be not formal enough. But that doesn't mean you need to wear tropical weight either. A mid-weight worsted cloth would be your best bet. A plain weave, mini-herringbone or twill (even twill, not gabardine) would be best.
Bring one with you. Two of my friends who I visit regularly who request I remove my shoes now have a shoe horn by their shoe rack because I asked that they provide it for me. That's a must. I often have a shoe horn in my bad/briefcase just in case. I would assume that everyone here brings a shoehorn with them to the airport. I bring plastic so it's easier to go through the metal detector.
Chalk stripes are my favourite type of stripes, but unfortunately they are often seen as over the top in America. It can be hard to get away with anything other than a faint pinstripe in most business situations.
I think that's a great choice. If it's double-breasted I think it looks much better with lapels. But a 3-piece suit rather than an odd waistcoat would be a more versatile choice.
