I bought 3 Tom Fords and I feel terrible about it.

    If it fits well, then great. If I spent that much on suits I'd probably get a mix of bespoke and Tom Ford. You can ask a tailor to replicate Tom Ford styling, but it doesn't mean it would come out like it. If that's the styling you want, then no regrets about buying it if it fits you well. However, I hope you got the wide peak lapel Tom Ford suits.

    Also, depending on where you live, you might not have easy access to a tailor that could make something better than a well tailored off the rack suit.

    Maybe I misread it?

    Anyway I'm working off an iPhone . I'll try and figure out a way?

    I think if I upload it to one of those photo sites and then put it will work? Give me a moment .

    I'm still trying to figure it out but if you go here I think you can see it?

    By the way I was in a sort of a magazine called "gentleman" in another country .....but that was a Gucci . I'll post that as well later . This is the Tom Ford black three piece

    I figured out....note the shirt is not a Tom Ford. I've just bought a few of them because I realized the suit really needs it:

    Looks good.

    Tom Ford's marketing machine is insane, but the suit looks good nonetheless.

    Shows that if you have Tom Brady, Timberlake, Tom Ford, and Jon Hamm repping your Zegna-made suits, people will fork over ungodly sums :D

    Suit looks great to me.

    You can definitely find a custom tailor to make you a suit cut like Tom Ford. And you'd probably save a couple thousand dollars per suit.

    Check my "Best Custom Clothier in America" thread for my experiences (and several recommendations from other users) with custom clothing.

    So far, I've had some okay, good and amazing experiences with bespoke. But, overall, I definitely prefer custom to rack. Find a creative and reputable tailor and you won't turn back.
