Tom Ford Spring Summer 2012 - Page 3

post #31 of 78
Its really all a reaction I think to the 60s look that is everywhere now ie short jackets, slim lapels, slim trousers. Its not so dissimilar to Tommy Nutters reaction to that look. I have started cutting wider legs with pleats and longer jackets and wider lapels for a while now although not as extreme as TF. Im going for more of an English American conservative look a bit like the Equalizer or some corporate guy out of Robocop. Im probably just getting older and more conservative though.

I like TFs looks here which seem rather charming and romantic in terms of the couple.

i think he does a Madmen style suit now with the slim lapels like the ones he made for "A Single Man" its Base F if im not mistaken. But spoo is right in that it is ad stuff, alot of the stuff they have in the store is actually quite conservative besides a really loud piece here and there

I have to agree on the large lapels and loose fitting trousers, I'm not too crazy about those either.

Well, at least my vintage herringbone 3-piece suit with ~4" notch lapels will be considered on par with Tom Ford.

Huge lapels and loose fitting pants just wouldn't look good on everyone. I prefer Tom Ford's sleek slim fitting styles.

^ defender of the faith.....I am not a fan of the birdwing lapels. I was around for the 70s disco look and it was fugly

Most of the collection looks like it's trying to hard. I'm sure the quality is amazing, but ugly is ugly.

I wouldn't mind the suits if those damn lapels weren't so wide!

The tittays were quite a pleasant surprise. nod[1].gif

I was in the vegas store last week with cash to burn and while your right its all far more conservative, none of it spoke to me. The shoes while always great weren't justified... and the glasses ugh, did not like... I will gladly stick with 2 years back.
