NEXT- LEVEL UNDIES
Tom Ford is here to make sure you’re perfectly dressed underneath his clothes.
We’re not saying this is you, but, if anyone needed an excuse to toss those old skivvies with the waistbands that have just about lost all elasticity, Tom Ford – designer and purveyor of all things glamorous – now gives him plenty of good reasons to do so.
This month, Ford’s new underwear line hits stores, and it’s a full collection comprising more than 40 pieces. Available in four cuts ( briefs, trunks, and short or classic boxers), the collection includes prints such as leopard and zebra, metallic cottons, and a seven-piece collection of nude shades that are designed to closely match a variety of skin tones. (Offering seven shades of nude underwear might sound a tad excessive for gentlemen with more austere leanings, but those with a soft spot for white linen trousers will appreciate this thoughtful colour-matching.)
Lastly, the collection is made from fabrics such as jersey, cotton or silk. And because it wouldn’t do for such undies to be secured by simple cheap elastic, Tom Ford’s smalls are held in place by velvet waistbands ( but of course).
