the look: 110 years of respect

The business suit is an irreplaceable icon of education, respect, and ultimately power. It has been established as the look required for any occasion that demands a display of impeccable taste. Besides...what else is there for you to wear?
  • 1900s to the 1930s
  • 1940s to the 1970s
  • 1980s to 2010

At the end of the 110 years is a figure of equal distinction: Tom Ford. Ford has had significant weight on the modern menswear world; having dressed an extensive list of powerful figures as well as blazing trail as a diligent entrepreneur in the industry. You might hear me raving about him (often) in the future, fyi. The second most recent James Bond movie, Casino Royale, featured Tom Ford sunglasses. But the suits were still made by the internationally respected company, Brioni.

Who's your style icon? If it is yourself, that is very acceptable.
