Tom Ford Suits up for GQ

Sage Style Advice from Tom Ford

I’m fairly strict on my work-wear, keeping it pretty Downtown-Corporate-Chic during the weekdays. Yet on Saturday and Sunday, If I’m not at a work event, I’m a firm believer at whatever your age, wear what you want and makes you feel good. Many weekends, you can catch me wearing extra large drop crotch Rick Owens Slate grey shorts, a Y-3 T and some Hi-Top DSM x Converse Kicks. If I’m on a vacation, I’ll take it up a notch or 2 with mostly bottoms and few tops that I created + sewed myself.

The September 2019 issue of GQ is all about suits. From Goodwill glam Plaids, to oversized pants to the Lebron/Thom Browne shorts suit. Basically, wear your suit anyway you want. Which leads us to this incredibly awesome quote from the ever stylish Tom Ford:

Tom says that people ask him: I wish lived in the 30’s or I wish I lived in the 50’sthat was a more elegant era.  Tom Ford responds by saying:

But there’s no reason you can’t live in the world you want. All you have to do is dress the way want and live the way you want.

He’s talking more about dressing up in a stylish Suit. I’m talking more about wearing street at any age. Yet both of us are saying the same thing. If you like something, if you feel good wearing it, make sure that you put it on and wear whatever you want.

The photo below is one of my favorite non age appropriate outfits. THAT my daughter took a snap of when I wasn’t looking.  I like it, I wore it. I may not be in the demo for this outfit. (Leggings, shorts in the winter etc) But on that day, I sure felt good about the World…and had an added SWAG in my step. Wear what you like, when you want…and with that said, I may wear some black to work on Monday.  Hehehe

BTW: I still receive the paper version of GQ in the mail.  If Details were still around, I’d still subscribe to it also.

Here’s a picture of the outfit I wore from the front side. A picture I knew that she took.

And here’s some more shots of me wearing what I want at any age.

Do you think it’s ok to dress as you like at any age? What’s your favorite suit trend for 2019-20? Are there any paper mags you still get in the mail or at the airport or is it all Digi all the time now? Let us know in the comments section.  See you on the Streetz…in a suit?
