The Name's Ford, Tom Ford - Page 11

post #151 of 158

I've heard that TF had to design the suits how the costume designer wanted...so he couldn't do the wide lapels or work his magic...And curious as to why the suits don't fit Craig as well this time

having just seen the movie, and judging it possibly the best bond film ever-- tied or better than goldfinger, in my book-- I recant my prior statement. the suits looked fine, a little neck gapping notwithstanding. possibly in part due to a minimum of skinny-pantleg shots in the film, but they actually looked razor sharp in the film to me. WHAT A MOVIE!!!!!

The collar gap is the mark of a terrible fit. I'm sorry, but considering the resources behind these suits it's a legit call out (to fashion nerds). If I was Ford I'd be embarrassed. 

 

Can't wait to see the movie!

This. The awesomeness of the movie notwithstanding (and it was pretty incredibly awesome), a collar gap means it doesn't fit. Has nothing to do with a "fashionably slim" aesthetic or whatever the costume designer wanted. Just plain doesn't fit. I was shocked at this--even when he was standing still the suit was sitting a good inch away from his neck.

And yeah, if I was Ford, I'd be furious.

Now, Ralph Fiennes' suits... Those were nice.

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 all the creases at the waist, and it's spreading open at the chest. And we're supposed to believe he can conceal a gun under that? A card case wouldn't even fit in there. At least all the details are correct, and I'm sure the blue is exaggerated on the poster. It looks like a proper midnight from all else I've seen.

Though you cannot tell from that picture the details are not all correct; I saw the film this past weekend and one scene clearly shows that the jacket has a single center vent censored.gif

Anybody have luck finding the skyfall ties? I don't see them floating around like the QOS ties.
