What We've Learned from Tom Ford

A few nice pearls of wisdom from Tom Ford in the 2008 edition of Esquire's Big Black Book, including an answer to why we bother with style in the first place: "Dressing well is a kind of good manners, if you ask me. When you're standing in a room, your effect is the same as a chair's effect, or a sculpture's... I find it's a show of respect to try to put on your best face and look as good as you can." Maybe that's a rationalization, but if it is, it's a good one.
