Tom Ford, Perfectionist No More

He's wearing last night's suit, and he couldn't care less.
Tom Ford, Perfectionist No More He's wearing last night's suit, and he couldn't care less.

In an interview with the Evening Standard, i-D reports that the American designer for sexy ageless clothing is over his perfectionist phase. Tom Ford once said that he was on the brink of mental illness, but now he’s just not as meticulous as before. The catalyst? Being a father to his son, Alexander John. "Our house is covered in plastic toys; I cannot believe it! I mean, I used to just live for decorating. Our houses were flawless. I think for some gay men, their houses become their children. It was that case for me, but I just don't care as much anymore. I have moments where I think, 'Oh shit!' It's not exactly a pigsty, but it's not as immaculate." 

It’s a compete lifestyle turnaround that encompasses his grooming and sartorial choices. He candidly explains his own appearance saying, "This old dirty suit! I literally just pick up the suit from the night before and put it on. I used to make more of an effort in the mornings but I don't any more.” 

Disheveled or not, this man still knows what sexy is.
