You might not find the style flattering at all, but may I ask you: What body type is best for this style of tailoring?
I have seen several actors like Gabriel Macht from Suits, Daniel Craig from James Bond etc. wear Tom Ford, and to me it looks great, but obviously these are fit gentlemen.
Would it be abysmal for someone on the heavier side, because the buttoning point is on a higher waist?
Do you work in a menswear store or custom tailor? I was just picking up on you saying customers asking for a Tom Ford cut.
Well I am very biased because I'm a strong proponent of the style but I think it looks very good on an older or heavier set man it's a style made to flatter, on a young or fit man it should look incredible if the "raw material is already good".
The hair and beard I don't think were terribly successful in this shoot but I made up this suit recently, Brendon is 6.2 size 38 with a true 30 waist, I think in terms of an "English" style of tailoring this is a pretty textbook fit and style with maybe a dash of the 70s (which again is rather TF) I'll try to dig out some pictures of the coat closed tomorrow if I have time.
I've seen Tom Ford looking much better in terms of fit. usually his suits are tailored very close and if he had a bad week I could see his suits looking rather too snug like it does in the OP. Maybe he just had a curry?
Having said that on a traditional Savile Row client the suits always look a bit snug! I think it's the good living that does it, it certainly does for me.
