    I want the gloves, duffel bag and the portfolio. The duffel bag would be so divine, but it sure would not be a gym duffel bag--hell to the no! I would carry it with me while wearing the gloves, descending stairs.

    Anyhow, I have always loved how hot and sexy that Sep 2005 W ed was. Except the platinum hair on all three models sort of freaked me out..but that was the obvious point. Both the models and the 'dummies'/mannequins were alienesque.

    Actually calling this set 'luggage' is kind of weird, since luggage, to me at least, implies -like LTEC mentioned- duffle bags and serious travel containers of sorts. ...oh well... I know for sure that he also does duffle bags, and I am also 100% positive he would create one in alligator if it were to get ordered.

    Carrying a leather duffle bag with leather gloves is always so chic. In fact the best look is: carrying the bag with one hand wearing the glove, but also holding the other glove along with the bag.

    The 'one glove look' is so chic on men. And women too. Like how Galliano did in his latest couture show.

    Yes I hope to one day pull this look off that you're describing. It's like 'in sync' how vivid I can visualize this image.

    But would the bag have to be crocodile duffel? I'm afraid so...well I guess not. Leather can be chic with the right locks and gold on it, and the rest of the outfit? Boots and either slightly slouchy jodphurs or tight jodphurs, a cashmere sweater and a loose two-toned scarf like Marlon's look at Hermes.

    T.D.F. :wub:

    This set would work perfectly with Tom's Russian Ushanka or aviation 'shapkas.' And with a pair of brown turtleshell shades.


    off topic:


    Dear LTEC, I do this sometimes.


    A black leather duffle, knee-high black riding boots, black gloves with beige cashmere lining. A white heavily starched tuxedo shirt with heavy pleating, black TF shades (either Hawkings, Buckley, or Farrah) and a sharp velvet or silk/wool blend blazer - jet black of course. Combine it with a white liquid silk very long aviation scarf, and a black fox fur scarf on top. (I have a Gucci one that does the job right) Instead of riding boots, One can also pursue chic black dress shoes - lizard, croc, of calfskin. But no lamb during winter, of course.

    Well, one needs a free hand to navigate iPod, or to answer the phone. That is why one glove. Instead of duffle, sometimes a chic black doctors bag, or solid briefcase.

    The look is a little Karl, but if you chose to wear skinny jeans, it looks casual enough. I do have a pair of black Ferre pants with a subtle look of jodhpurs and small silver studs, and they work miraculously as well. Accessorize accordingly, either silver or 18K gold cufflinks, one simple metal band of a bangle etc. Tiffany 1837 would be my preference, if silver is desired. Or some silver piece Tom had done for Gucci. You get the idea.

    What would make it sick, would be to wear the riding boots and single glove with tight white breeches of course: Beau Brummell style. But that is too brave for a man today, don't you agree?

    Since Tom sees himself as the modern day's Brummell, I do not think posting a cartoon of 'the ultimate man of style' here would be off-topic, to understand Tom Ford and mens fashion a little better perhaps. (if the mods would be kind enough to allow it, of course) The Beau was the inventor of 'the suit.' In a way, Coco and YSL of the mens fashion.

    This is not the Beau, but the template of fashion he inspired. He was said to be extremely handsome. Note the single glove. LetThemEatCake, I think you will like this.

    Pasha I LOVE those photos!

    I like to think I'm pretty brave, I wear/used to wear really tight jodphurs (they have to be) that almost cut off my circulation at my waist and black riding boots (the real thing though, they're not some Hermes, at some point I need to change that) and you need a really.good.a.s.s. for that. No jiggling here. And if you were wearing white ones? You'd better have done some serious squats and lunges for several months prior.

    I love the Brommell photo. LOVE. And you and your description in your previous post is pretty much my ideal ensemble. When I dress down I wear torn in the knee black skinny jeans with Converses that used to be white like a decade ago and a flannel with the sleeves rolled up, a chain around my neck, maybe a thin white v-neck tee underneath, but its so much more fun to clomp around in boots and know your a.s.s. is getting stared at in the riding boots and the tight tight jodphurs.

    Oh dear, WHY dont we know each other? "Thank you for being a friend". :winkiss:

    Nudity is Tom's forte B)

    I don't think that image is new, I think it was for one of his fragrance campaigns.

    this one is a lengthened image of his fragrance ad , id never seen it before

    and no he does look good with a receding hairline , it really suits him , and dont forget he is 47 so some men do lose theyre hair at that age

    i like this though , and what i dont get in an interview he said 'its about sensuality than sexuality' clearly in this image its more about sexuality than sensuality because shes grabbing his you know what lol
