    You guys like to hate on the stuff, but I would bet that a lot of you would be all over it if the prices suddenly became more accessible.

    There has only been one negative comment so far (it will soon look dated)- the rest has been praise.

    Not the case for previous Tom Ford threads.

    Very striking stuff. A Tom Ford suit definitely makes an impression.

    I like how the website is intuitive and you are able to see the details you want to see. Too many designers have atrocious websites.

    The line is very impressive.

    I like those houndstooth suits alot. I almost bought a vintage suit very recently that had a windowpane that was virtually identical to one of his...very similar look.

    Stuff looks good. I don't have the guts to wear 95% of it, however.

    It's not the Tom Fordness of the clothes that impresses me, but their non-Tom Fordness. The jackets and suits just look like really nice jackets and suits--the fit, fabrics, proportions, etc., are really great. I imagine it takes a lot of measured restraint for a designer to put out stuff like this given the natural impulse to establish his 'brand' through detracting gimmickry.

    That being said, all this praise raises the question once again: why pay a designer for something made to look tailor-made and un-designer-like when you could go to a tailor?

    Because TF is picking the details (cloth, cut, proportions, etc) for you.

    I like it for what it is. I think it would be diffcult to wear most of this stuff on a one off basis and I guess in that way its almost "customey" but its not offensive.

    Exactly..and because he is a designer, and you are not...and you may end up with an expensive trainwreck.

    I would like to see some of these in DB - the windowpanes especially.
