Tom Ford Base T: Anybody have info?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i'm thinking of taking the plunge on a Tom Ford Base T suit. Can anybody comment on the fit of the trousers?

It measures 9.75' at the hem; are we talking about flaring trousers?

Tom Ford Base T (Wetherby) suits have double pleated flaring trousers. Paired it with a Base T suit jacket, it looks clownish. (At least on me). I have a pair of Base T flaring trousers that has been significantly altered to achieve a more decent look. But I still cannot pull off with a suit jacket.

So you're saying I'd likely have to alter the hem to get a more 'normal' look?

Depends on what look you want to achieve.
I have to alter from from mid thigh all the way down to the hem to slim down the trousers. Leg opening diameter was slimmed down from 25 cm to 20 cm (approx slightly less than 8 inches).

I had to take fabric off from the back of the trousers to slim down the generous fabric from the front rise, and was very careful not to take too much so as to not alter the look of the pleats. The end result I achieved was more of a straight cut look (Base A) from the thigh down but the front rise fabric is still abit generous but not ridiculous. Overall, I love how the trousers look but just doesn't seem right with a suit jacket.

Thanks for the input. There are a bunch of Base Ts floating around at knockdown prices, but I think slimming down the trousers would be too much work at this point. Best to stick with A or B.

No worries. I noticed that there are many discounted Base Ts around as well. I love the aggressive cut of Base T jackets but it is a shame that the trousers does not complement the jacket. Alternatively, one could always do a made-to-order Base A (Windsor) trousers to match the jacket (if the fabric is still available), if willing to fork out a grand for them. I have been bouncing around with this idea but bailed due to the cost.

Base T must not be selling well hence Tom Ford removed this line for MTM & MTO.
