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.
