I've read many posts where certain people don't have the "right" physique to look good in Tom Ford.

 

What physique does someone need to look good in Tom Ford?

 

No chest - no drop - no muscle. Same old story.

 

Todays generation of men keep themselves in shape, and I would wager, as mentioned in this thread, the average drop of a 25-30 year old man is 6-8 inches. My drop is 11, and while I am a former athlete and serious about weight lifting, I am not a bodybuilder. Part genetics I admit (my waist is naturally small).

 

Hopefully manufacturers start taking note.

15% bf is not in shape. You clearly see abs at 10 and below. 15% is by no means unhealthy, but it's certainly not in shape.

2% bodyfat is pretty good, like the milk.

What world do you live in? 15% isn't a competitive bodybuilder or a professional athlete, but for a regular guy, 15% is pretty damn fit.

You're not applying the StyFo 10% BodyFat Deduction Factor.

I have zero bodyfat, except momentarily when I eat buttered toast.

BTW, Tom Ford wears a girdle. True story.

I dont disagree that 15% BF can be fit. 

 

When I think "in shape" I think in shape. Hey, we knit pick the fit of a suit to smallest detail. 

 

15% bf is not out of shape, but, in my opinion, it's not anything above average for someone who puts in minimal effort at the gym and eats reasonably healthy. When I say in shape, I mean in shape. Visible abs, etc.

This thread is irrelevant, since no one can actually own a Tom Ford suit. They are leased on a contractual bases, and only to Bigtimers. That leaves SF out confused.gif
