I've been curious about Tom Ford clothing for a long time, but my interest has peaked recently(both in good and bad ways.)
First off: Is it just me, or are there actually just a few TF owners out there that seem to fit the suit cuts good? Unfortunately I've so far only seen very few "WOW" pictures of people wearing his suits, and really goes for everyone. From the Ebay scavengers, to movie stars that get to pick and choose from his whole collection.
It's the same things over and over again: shoulders too strong, chest too big, sleeves too long, waist too suppressed. The cut just seems too unique, like they were all modeled after some person with very prominent features.
So, to the main question, what kind of body do you need to have? (or better yet, what kind of bodies should avoid dumping that amount of cash on his suits)
Especially in the shoulder/traps area.
Should people with sloping and prominent traps just stay away?
FWIW, I used to own a YSL suit from the TF days, and it suffered from the extreme waist suppression, built shoulders and painfully slim pants. Don't know how his own collection is compared to those though.
