Tom Ford’s five easy lessons in how to be a modern gentleman.

1. You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out in the world because that is a show of respect to the other people around you.

2. A gentleman today has to work. People who do not work are so boring and are usually bored. You have to be passionate, you have to be engaged and you have to be contributing to the world.

3. Manners are very important and actually knowing when things are appropriate. I always open doors for women, I carry their coat, I make sure that they’re walking on the inside of the street. Stand up when people arrive at and leave the dinner table.

4. Don’t be pretentious or racist or sexist or judge people by their background.

5. A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach.

In the late Seventies, Ford was a student of architecture by day and disco-style divo at Studio 54 in New York by night. Then, he moved to Milan to head up design for Gucci in the Eighties, where his sharp, sleek designs took the fashion house back from the brink of closure.

At the helm of his very own Tom Ford brand since 2004, the Texan is celebrated for his unapologetic sexiness -especially with men’s tailoring, and today he’s one of the most sought-after suit designers for the red carpet.

He’s dressed the best of them – Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt, parading his sharply tailored dinner jackets in plush velvets and perfect-fit mohair costumes that allow men to be a little out-of-box, without forsaking their masculinity. Tom Ford style inspiration? Himself, actually.

Breaking It Down – Tom Ford Style

Tom Ford Style

Tom Ford told CNBC in a recent interview: “I am the Tom Ford customer.” And he doesn’t do casual. Despite the odd snap of Ford scampering through an airport in jeans and a shirt, the designer is otherwise wearing a jacket; be it a blazer or complete suit.

Surrounding himself in luxury, his belief that men should think less about trends and more toward the classics, lends itself effortlessly to his other passion: looking good. As Tom Ford once famously put it: “We are living in a material world. So why not live with something beautiful?”

White Shirt, Black Suit

Tom Ford Style

Dark suit, white shirt; these are the Tom Ford style uniform, if ever there were to be one. A sartorialist at heart, Ford looks like he is more of European descent than Texan blood, opting for crisp, cotton shirt (always white) and a black, single-breasted suit, dressed up a tad with sprawling peak lapels.

A white pocket square and silk necktie break away from looking like a waiter, especially when the shirt is left opened-up. Ford is a traditionalist for cut, so ensure the jacket sits squarely on the shoulders and covers the butt. The trouser needs a fitted waist and longer leg break – nothing cropped.

Material Man

Tom Ford Style

When he wants to step up the style, Ford doesn’t looks to the red carpet actors he gets paid to dress. The luxury softness of velvet and it striking brilliance under lights and camera, make it a go-to fabric for the Ford tuxedo.

A man well-versed in disco glam, unlikely materials like velvet lose any sort of preconceived tackiness, when worn so finitely by Ford. Working the plush into classic dinner jackets, best in midnight blue or cherry red, the novelty fabric becomes expensive, bringing out the sheen of patent leather shoes. When Ford wants to remind those of his wilder fashion days, he can.

Key Tom Ford Style Items

Suits

Dinner jackets in velvet are Tom Ford, while Haider Hackermann and Topman offer the coat in a rich navy blue. Peak lapel suits are Gucci-inspired or something else fashionably black from Huntsman or Paul Smith.

Jackets

Suede bombers are provided Club Monaco, Brioni or Burberry, while Ford’s car jacket can be sourced from Hackett.

Accessories

Silk scarves, like the one from Saint Laurent, are essential neckwear when going tie-less. Crocodile skinned luggage or carryall is a win from Dior. And Dries Van Noten have a orange-hued aviator perfect for a retro shade. For black frames, stick to the man himself – Tom Ford eyewear. Touché.

Denim

Incotex offer luxury vintage wash jeans. As do J.Crew for the raw denim – both are more ‘Ford’ for their tapering – just like pants.

Shoes

Black leather Chelsea boots from R.M. Williams are very rancher when Ford returns home to Texas. For a more elegant option look to Adieu or Lanvin. Dress shoes are his very own Tom Ford stylish loafers in burnished brown.

Nos describe unos excelentes consejos de moda masculina y para la vida.

Tom Ford se ha convertido para muchos en algo más que un simple diseñador de moda. Icono, gurú o incluso mesías de la moda masculina, son algunos de los adjetivos que se le han puesto al diseñador estadounidense en los últimos tiempos.

Sin entrar a valorar la justificación o no de dichos adjetivos lo que nadie puede negar es el estilo y savoir faire de nuestro protagonista, llegándose a convertir en todo un referente de la elegancia masculina del siglo XXI.

Y él lo sabe y como buen diseñador que se encuentra en la cúspide gusta de dejar sentencias que acaban convirtiéndose en dogmas de fé para muchos de sus fieles. Las últimas las ha realizado escasas semanas para la publicación Another Mag, donde ha dejado en forma de “mandamientos” 5 consejos básicos que según Tom Ford debe tener cualquier hombre con estilo que se precie, y el primero de ellos es bien contundente.

1.Un hombre nunca debería llevar pantalones cortos en la ciudad. Las chanclas y los pantalones cortos nunca son apropiados, salvo para cuando vayamos a la playa o a jugar al tenis

2.Ofrece siempre la mejor versión de ti mismo al exterior. Es una muestra de respeto hacia la gente que te rodea

3.Un gentleman moderno tiene que trabajar. Las personas que no trabajan son aburridas y aburren. Hay que ser apasionado y comprometido para poder dar algo al mundo.

4.Los modales son muy importantes. Hay que saber actuar según cada momento. Abre las puertas a las mujeres, lleva sus abrigos y asegúrate de que caminan por el lado interior de la calle. Cuando alguien llegue a la mesa levántate para saludarlo.

5.No seas pretencioso, racista o sexista.

Espero les guste este articulo un saludo muy grande.
