The suit is a plain navy blue, but obviously very modern cut with somewhat wide peak lapels and a high pocket that actually slopes up (a Tom Ford signature, but also the thing that makes it the most potentially inappropriate for work...).
I would obviously tone down the accouterments at work, shirt, tie, etc., but I am still on the bubble - any thoughts?
I'm no expert on TF or anything "fashion" but unless you're the founder/owner of the firm, I would refraing from wearing a "casual" suit which I can only assume a Tom Ford suit is. It's for parties. Not for business.
