Tom Ford Suit fit question - Page 2

post #16 of 71
The shoulders and chest are prominent, but that's the Tom Ford aesthetic. For better opinions, use a dress shirt and tie.

Please ignore the rest of my attire. Just a quick try on. Sleeves of course have to be shortened. Thanks again!

Tom Ford, wonderful brand, but it is a YMMV brand.

I hate to sound defeatist, but you aint gonna rock that Tom Ford aesthetic. No offense meant to you, but few can really rock it. Have a look at pics in the WAYWRN thread of Tom Ford suits with batwing peaks worked well. A guy called Spoo occasionally brings one out from time to time.

Lucky for all of us that there exist so many lux brands. Why not try some others because at the end of the day, it is about looking good. I find Brioni offering horrifying fits for me, we all have some brands that just do not work out (or will take far too much tailoring to work out).

The only way you could make that Tom Ford work is to go one size up (so it fits the waist region better) and then have a tailor completely suppress the shoulders and do a nip and tuck elsewhere. Overall investment would be $300 plus of tailoring just to make work. For my money, not worth it, move on.....

Hope this helps. It is nice to own fine clothing, but only if you look like a million bucks in it. If the garment does not accentuate your good looks, then even the finest garment will be doing you a disservice.

Klobber nailed this on the head.

If you are set on TF (as I once was). MTM might provide you an alternative. There is a lot of shoulder work and waist work needed, even of you go up a size. Try many brands, at this price range there are many options.

Exactly, this.

Klobber nailed it on the head. TF is hard to rock but when you can... you look like Spoo

Tom Ford seems to favour those with plenty of height and a build on the slim side. It's a great cut, but unrelenting. I remember him stating on an interview that he isn't for everyman. Only for those who 'take care of themselves' so that Ford might take care of their style - and wallets.

I do take care of myself. That is not synonymous with "slim," yet i see how the confusion can arise. In fact, many equate "slim" with not taking care of yourself but be that as it may, height is definitely not on my side. I had commented to a friend that the suit made me feel like Napoleon! biggrin.gif
Do y'all prefer this Canali fit on me:
Mind you this is a regular. I of course, would be a short.
