Tom Ford's James Bond Suit ... Pattern - Page 2

post #16 of 22

conradwu: I recall reading elsewhere that TF gets his fabric from Zegna, but it's exclusive for TF. You can't buy it anywhere. The initial replies to this thread were cruel jokes at the OP's expense, not serious replies; they kinda expect people to know that you can't just go out and buy TF fabric.

TF suits are made by Zegna.
The fabrics are from their standard line up and are from their mid-range collections (4/5 on their numeric scale).

Unless you have a thing for Tom Ford
Zegna Milano fit looks quite a bit better for 1/2 the cost

did you figure out how to request the patterns for the TF suits?  I am looking for patterns myself and would be willing to pay for them.

 

Thanks,

Tom Ford does not sell "patterns". Even if you were to get a hold of it (???) chances are the suit pattern won't fit you since it's specifically tailored for Daniel Craig.

 

Fabric wise you can get something similar if you look around. Chances are your tailor in Bangkok won't have the exact same. You could research more regarding the fabric weight and fmill.

 

You can also point out to your tailor the details (shoulder, lapel width, 2/3 button, slanted hip pockets, tailored/skin tight, etc.) and tell him to make you a similar one. 

Wow...You're dumb.

1. Correct in regards to TF being made by Zegna
2. No idea what range they come from in regards to the Zegna line but they are exclusive to TF (not really a big deal since you don't really need the EXACT fabric), and to the best of my knowledge you cannot walk into Zegna and ask for Fabric that they use for TF
3. re. the Milano fit, that would depend on who is wearing it as this is RTW and we all don't have the same body type. And it is not 1/2 the cost

If you're using your own tailor, you won't be able to get the same fabric; only something similar.

Tom Ford does not sell fabric separately.

My friend was able to get them to order extra fabric in the same as his suit (a phased out model) because he decided a year later he wanted belt loops, and because his own tailor needed to reconstruct the pants because it became too tight (don't ask). But i think they were only able to do it because they had some spare laying around in the factory

If its just detailing like wide peak lapels etc then i don't see why not. But if you are getting a suit made why would you ask them to copy another makers suit made for another person? Put it this way if you don't have daniel crags body type even if you went straight to the source TF themselves theres not much even they can do to make you a suit like the ones from the movies. If you are lucky enough to do have his body then just ask for a slim fitting 3 roll 2, with slim-ish notch lapels, 3 button cuff with the last button hold longer than the others. There problem solved..... Keep in mind though that all of the suits i have seen on other forums where people attempted to copy the Casino Royale Tuxedo, or the QoS suits, etc have been disasters
