    Crown Northampton Appreciation Thread

    Thanks for sharing the Mellor II, can't say I had heard of them. The birds eye view of the 3 shoes for me shoes shows how "stubby" or rounded the toes the Crown Northampton are. Toe shape for me is a big thing, I don't like them too rounded as that's the reason I might see them as "dad's" shoe.

    Crown Northampton Appreciation Thread

    In all honesty I appreciate the material and craftsmanship, I like suits so construction and material obviously are very important for me. HOWEVER being a sneakerhead, I honestly say I find their shoes pretty ugly (I am sorry if I had offended anyone here). Looking at their range, it feels like...

    The State of Black Tie: Your Observations

    I think is his way to protest to Peter Hawkings about his comment on TF himself. https://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/article/tom-ford-interview-2023

    Fit Check - Tom Ford Suit Jacket

    You need to take note of the cut/style of the jacket also not to confuse you more, I have Base A/Windsor in 46 to 50R and they all fit me (50R I need to take in a little on the waist) as the size varies from season to season, best is to ask for measurements and get it adjusted. The key thing is...

    Fit Check - Tom Ford Suit Jacket

    This looks like an O'connor or Spencer. But it does look like the shoulders is buckling along. Also the arms needs to be shorten. I am not sure you are aware, Tom Ford button holes are a bit different to normal suit where the last one closest to the cuff is slightly longer, so you might need to...

    Logo without a logo

    Is actually much harder than what I've mentioned. As I just described the externals and the internals are a different ball game according to my Savile Row trained tailor who does my alternations. Sure I had seen some Instagram accounts where they had copied most of TF styles and they done a...

    Logo without a logo

    If you have this budget, why don't you just buy Tom Ford? Second hand or on sale are a bit cheaper than you budget. Not all style has wide lapels, but they all should have: 1) Barchetta Chest pocket 2) Milanese button hole on the chest 3) Slightly longer last button hole on the cuff and they...

    Tom Ford milanese lapel button holes

    For someone who taught himself how to sew milanese button holes, I am afraid you are wrong. I also own enough TF pieces to say they are not standardised as there are flaws if you look closely. I had pieces where the back stitched is so far off to the gimp, you can tell they messed it up and...

    Fake or Real (Authentic, Genuine, etc.) -- Official Authentication Thread

    Is 100% real, the reps can't do the fabric tag font properly. The finishing are all TF quality. I owned the puffy jacket verison of this, but sold it as the asymmetrical zip bothers me when I wear the jacket like a blazer.

    Tom Ford

    Yeah you have to compare the same suit in a R in the same season. The reason I know this is because a friend of mine bought a brand new TF 3 piece Windsor from Selfridges. He was a 48 and initially tried on the R. With the R it was too long for him on the arms and body, but it fits his torso, so...

    Tom Ford

    Yes.. It denotes C for short L for Long. Bear in mind, short will also mean the torso are also a bit wider, it is not just "shorter" but slightly wider.

    Tom Ford

    I'm lucky to say I own around 20+ Tom Ford suits (I actually lost count) and numerous blazers. I have been wearing TF since 2009 and my experience is, sizing varies season to season even in the same model/cut. My favourite is Base A (Windsor) and I have suits/blazers vary from 46R to 52R (with...

    Tom Ford suit “made in Italy”

    Anything made in China and Spain are uniform. It was China first and then Spain. If you look at the inner pocket of your waist coat you should see a code UNITFC. In saying the above, there are Italian made charcoal uniforms as well. The constructions for all uniforms are the same as retail...

    how can i repair a rip in my suit pant

    The costs probably gonna cost more than the trousers due to the pattern. Another thing OP can do is call Tom Ford and see they have the fabric to re-make that panel.

    The Hong Kong BaoTou Tailors and Fabric Shops for CMT Thread

    I personally prefer windsor with the full width trousers. The level of detail a lot of tailors had copied reasonably well now but can't get a lot of the finer ones like the curved trouser pockets and the chest padding correct without buckling the roll of the lapel.

    The Hong Kong BaoTou Tailors and Fabric Shops for CMT Thread

    Maybe actually get a Tom Ford and get him to copy it? I send my Tom Ford suits to my MK tailor in HK and had some semi good results for 1.5k HKD for 3 piece it wasn't bad.

    Tom Ford Buckley Base Pinstripe Three-Piece Wool Suit, Charcoal

    I think is a Falconer, as Base E is Buckley. Is a very old suit, TF stopped using BASE to indicate the style for like 7-8 yrs now and this is the first type of style tag,as all TF suits have their name on the tag now. If you friend want an estimate price for this, she will be lucky to get...
