I wished he would evolve the men's a bit... His Gucci menswear always had a few 'fun' touches that allowed you to go a little bit more playful and daring but you always had the sleek tailoring and sophisticated sportswear if it had to be classic... maybe a more daring, seasonal shoe or a little bit more colour would have done the trick to give it some more graphic interest.

Autopilot doesn't even begin to describe it...

His menswear has such an awful douchebag guy vibe. Like that tacky luxury obsessed guy you would see in Miami or Ibiza.

I always find it odd that Tom Ford, a man who basically dominated the fashion scene for well over a decade, consistently turn out such mediocre lines! What is this collection even? Does simply not care about menswear?

This really could've been any designer. I haven't liked his menswear since FW'15.

Casting could've helped a little. He needs an Adam Senn or a Noah Mills to pull this sort of douche-y vibe off.

I actually quite like this all black collection and i also dont see the douchebag in this vs say most things from philip plein or dolce and gabbana..

i dont know if its fair to call Tom Ford mens the hermes of US of A but maybe thats what he is going after hence the "basic" designs but top notch quality...

At least price points are around there. Quality I am not so sure, but i dont have complaints with the few items i got from them, shirts made in switzerland, leathers from italy etc...few years and still going strong.

whilst this collection seem decidedly conservative, he has done pretty daring stuff before, like shocking pink tuxedos or turquoise suits and stuff like that..

Yes, but maybe that's the thing - His propositions have only ever been formal in nature... It seems a bit dated because nowadays, people don't dress 24/7 as a groomed-to-the-nines Lapo Elkann or a Daniel Craig as James Bond... Tom Ford plays by certain codes of dressing in both his men's and womenswear without ever asking himself if that's still the reality lived by people out there leading an active life. His work would desperately need a twist of styling to keep him a position as an opinion leader in today's high fashion world.

I actually like this collection very much. It's not groundbreaking and it lacks in standout pieces (an alligator bomber jacket for example) but it's good.

What i like is to see his look evolve into something less formal but still chic with a lot of attitude. Men really buys his suits. In the shops, you can see some men buying like crazy.
This is not as extreme and decadent as what he did when he started but when he started, it was a new proposition in menswear.

He still has that "authority" in menswear... Maybe more than in womenswear. The TF suit is the suit young professionals and business men wears. It still got that fashion edge without being too wild. It's almost niche...

You can wear it with sneakers and it will be as chic as it is presented here. I love it.
I wouldn't mind wearing the first look or some of the eveningwear. It could be very chic on a woman.

I'd wear every single look here, except perhaps those shorts.
Great casting as well. I love Erik Van Gils.

Point taken, I know what you mean now. It's true like someone said his ideal type of men and women does seem to walk straight out of a movie set, and a 50s one at that, with coiffed hair and perfectly groomed no less lol
