TOM FORD

As vogue.com was celebrating it's 15th anniversary they asked amongst others Tom Ford what his 15 must-haves for men are?  I think it's quite funny to read and I agree as well as disagree with some of the things said. Tell me what you (dis-)agree on?!

For the title picture I leaned on the style of my friends over at Vogue (ok you got me there, I don't have friends and especially not at Vogue..) . But I still think it looks cool!

I don't know why, but Vogue used some poor stock images to describe Tom Ford's 15 must-haves. Work of an intern? Anyway I replaced most of them with - in my opinion - much more stylish / appropriate images (click here to see their article).
