Hi all,

Was just wondering what grade of fabric does Tom Ford usually use for their suits? Specifically their 3-piece ones. Super 150s?

I might be wrong on this, but I'm pretty sure Tom Ford sources his fabrics from a few different mills, and normally tries to keep some level of exclusivity for his brand. That being said, I'm sure they range all over the place, with an emphasis toward the luxury-side. It's not so much the width of the thread as it is the blend (he uses a lot of mohair, if I recall).

Varies as with every menswear and tailor. His suits are made by Zegna Couture, so I would assume the fabrics are the same.
