Tom Ford at Bergdorf Goodman

A few images from Bergdorf Goodman's men's store on 5th Avenue.

I'm not usually a fan of Tom Ford: this NY Times article from last year sums up all that is wrong with the brand. However, a couple of things in Bergdorf's windows caught my eye.

First, a very simple 3 piece striped suit. Apart from the exuberantly-styled pocket handkerchief here, it's an absolute classic.

Second, a tweed 3 piece country suit - although I don't expect this suit would ever get near a field or a pair of muddy boots.

A closer look. It's an extremely bold pattern -- enough to do Huntsman or Richard Anderson proud -- but the muted colours turn it into a very elegant, even subtle, outfit. Not too keen on the bowtie, but again that's down to Bergdorf's sylists.

I understand that Daniel Craig's James Bond is dressed in Tom Ford. That seems a shame to me. Bond, if he is anything, is English. Couldn't the Row have been represented?

Another indication that the world as we know it is coming to an end.
