He obviously have a niche that doesn't involve anyone who's ever seen the inside of a cubicle.

At least the stuff is well made and looks better on most stars than a lot of the designer stuff out there.

Hm, no, I wouldn't say so. To really create a difference between collections I will need to see a clear difference in cuts and styling. He tries to convey that with the different (suit) models for every seasons look book, but as long as I know it's a model that's been around for a while, I don't see a collection as new.

 

TF himself stated that he'd like to create a timeless look, which kinda voids the need for new collections, though.

But you are right though that if you walked into a TF store the majority would still be the wide lapeled, 5 button cuff versions (if the cuff buttons were sewn on)

 

The house tailor put four cuff buttons onto the sleeves, without me specifically asking for it.

Yeah i guess what your saying makes sense. Its weird that they only put 4 though the past 3 times I've gone to them its always been 5 without me saying anything. Well in all fairness past 2 times, the other one was a MTO and i asked for "the classic TF suit" so the 5 buttons on that one is a given. Was yours the notch lapel one?

No, mine was a peak lapel Spencer suit.

 

I suspect you went to the New York boutique, though? I was in Milan. Maybe the tailors at each store have their own different ideas of how many buttons to do wink.gif

 

edit: crap, sorry - I just checked, mine also has five buttons. Ahem...

At least the house tailor did not screw up the sleeves like they did to mine & had to order sleeves from TF factory to re-attached them to my suit. I'm still bitter till now as the rope of the shoulders were never the same.

The placements of the new slim peak lapels seemed abit high up sticking out like ears of an elf.
Not a fan at all. Need to see it in person.

It seems to me to be moving against current fashion trends, rather than adopting a wider lapel (the inevitable move) he is making a slimmer one. Interesting, TBH - though not to my taste.

Although I believe the cut of trousers as very slim is here to stay a while the cut of jackets is going to be played with a lot soon and TF's collection here doesn't make sense.

Lol yeah usually if you don't say anything they go with the five buttons. I have no idea of the names of them though cuz i usually just refer to the Base (A,B,D,F,etc) The only thing I've heard of was the Falconer which i read about online, and the O'conner which was just released and i only saw that because my salesperson at TF posted a pic on Facebook.

I really wouldn't worry to much about it. Look at the Last collection they were all wide notch lapel, but when you go into the TF store (at least here in NYC) the majority of what they carry is still the standard wide peak lapel that we are all used too. You have to consider what you see on the website along with most other designers as their "fashion pieces" which will vary from season to season, but they will still carry their regular ones which are the standard wide peak lapel, and the normal sized notch lapel used in QoS.

Like most of the pieces, and also the styling. Very jetsetter/playboy-ish, but with the right touch of fun and play.

I have a MTM TF suit with the wider peak lapels. For my body type, it looks good. I dont think I could pull off the super skinny lapel look. The new collection still looks sick though. As a previous poster pointed out, what you see on the website is usually not what you will see in the boutique.

Less talk, more pics of the suit biggrin.gif

I like what Tom Ford does with the suits making it stylish but keeping it sharp with great cuts. But I would personally stick with the regular styles rather than with trends.

Notch lapel and the one on topcoat are great, i'm not into the peak lapel
