If you like Tom Ford's styling, it is the way to go. Hands down.
I remembered trying TF suit for the first time. It felt almost weightless on my shoulder, the way it moulds & transforms your body into a V-shaped silhouette, armed with broad athletic shoulders, high but comfortable arm-holes, wide-but-not-over-the-top peaked lapels. From the side, the way it drapes over the arch of your upper back to your curvature of your spine and peaks ever so slightly, wrapping itself around the rounded curvature of the gluteus. It not only looks impressive, but felt like it. And very much so. To the point that it is hard to wrap your head around it that it is ready-to-wear.
Having tried many suits around & being extremely picky at almost every detail, I must say I was floored by how it fits so damn well. The barchetta breast pockets, working surgeon's cuffs are some of the features that appealed to me.
Having tried it on once, it makes it so difficult to walk away from such a beautiful construction, a work of art. How can that be? RTW? It has somewhat turned into an obsession to own one. And once owned one, you want another, in another colour, another type of fabric, another cut, perhaps even a 3-piece. And from there, you yearn for even a double-breasted.
Bespoke yes. I guess my above description can accurately illustrate the experience of a bespoke suit. You can painstakingly choose how you want your suit to look like. Very personalised, but yet, the end product could still be how the tailor thinks you look best in his eyes.
It is still not a TF suit.
Price. TF is a luxury line. Luxury products are overinflated. Century 21 price - good on ya. Full price? If you can afford and dont give a flying f_ck. Go for it. TF apparently claims that it is catered to a specific group of clients but yet present itself with a mass appeal. (Sounds familar?) One may not fit snuggly into a TF suit but still secretly yearn to own something Tom Ford. A tie maybe? Or one of his Private Blends.
Yes, I highly recommend TF. If price is of no object, go for it.
I know I would, all over again.
