Probably opening a can of worms here, but what the hell.
I'm currently looking into buying my first Tom Ford suit. Mostly because I like the styling (wide peak lapels, roped and structured shoulders, button-stance, etc.), but also because I know they're high-quality. Zegna Couture IIRC.
But with that said, are his suits basically just well-tailored 1970s suits? Whenever I see movies from the 70s, the suits absolutely scream Tom Ford. Wide lapels, slim waist, square shoulders, 3-piece, etc.
I know that he's strongly influenced from that time period, and the tailors from back then (Nutter, Sexton).
So, what do you think, are you basically buying a Zegna Couture suit with a very specific look?
I've also noticed that every celebrity and their mother wears Tom Ford. You basically can't go to one awards ceremony, premiere or happening without spotting a celebrity wearing Tom Ford from head to toe.
And lastly: Are there any better options for that exact look? (Excluding bespoke, that is)
