But he still looks better than 80% of the men there purely by virtue of following the rules. Imagine how much worse that outfit would have been if he'd have worn an open-necked black shirt or something.
Admittedly now I look a little closer the jacket isn't a perfect fit but ultimately it's still a proper dinner jacket rather than some notch lapelled, vented, flap pocketed, bastard hybrid made out of PVC mock alligator skin.
Actually I think I might wear that
I agree with the previous poster that most of the men who go on the red carpet dressed by tom ford look pretty good, whether like or dislike his style in regular suiting I think the more dramatic proprtions suit the simplicity of black tie - allowing the wearer to show a bit of personal flair without breaking any long standing rules of etiquette.
