In London there is a famous phrase when it comes to menswear; “wear the suit, don’t let the suit wear you”. There are two steps in achieving suit perfection, choosing a great suit and getting it tailored. Step one is covered brilliantly with the TOM FORD O’Connor Base Windowpane Two-Piece Suit.
The TOM FORD O’Connor suit was originally crafted for Daniel Craig for his role as James Bond. With that in mind it is no surprise that this garment gave me 007 vibes; specifically Dr. No. It is a trim cut suit that features large windowpane checking throughout. The lapel is a narrow notch with a hand-finished double-stitched silk button hole.
Of course with any TOM FORD selection the allure lies within the small details. The front flap pockets, ticket pocket and the hand-cut chest welt pocket really give this suit a subtle sophistication that is timeless. Also the bold pant hem is definitely a Flawless Crown moment. We suggest going with a wide collar dress shirt but as you can see here the turtleneck is also a great option. Santé!
