Well, even his waistband seems too small. This actually looks bad.
As for Tom Ford, it's just sad really...

Is it me or is Ford wearing flared tux pants?

What's so wrong with Tom Ford's tux? The shoes may be questionable, but everything else looks fine. Even his sleeve lengths.

I'm not sure what Thom Browne is trying to prove there. The line of his body is interrupted by his skin, and he looks far worse than Ford.

Well, the puddling trousers, the pulled away collar, the longish DJ, the shoes. Still, he looks prety decent to me, too.

The lady with Tom actually is dressed worse than he is, I feel. The bottom half of her dress is doing her no favors. It is too "puffy" and I don;t like that color for a black tie event. Thom Browne is simply once again proving that he is to be taken as serious as the Iraqi Information Minister during the invasion.



edit: The over/under on negative Thom Browne comments in this thread is 30.

I have tried to be open-minded about TB -- really, I have -- and can appreciate his garments and their construction, even if they may not be for me, but he just looks foolish here.

I believe that's Rita Wilson (Mrs. Tom Hanks). I like her ensemble. Though the dress does seem to be wearing her just a bit, instead of the other way around.

And is it just the angle he's standing at, or is there about an inch differential between Thom Browne's cuff lengths? Pants AND jacket sleeves, now that I look again...

yes, black tie without socks and it looks like there is a good chance that his jacket is too tight to button or that it would look like it would burst if he did button it. He should just wear shorts with the tux jacket like the models in his show did.

I assume then that culprit #2 is Thom Browne? Yikes. I did not know who it was for the record and I was still horrified.
