Tom Ford is a fashion icon of our time. Everyone either wants to be him or be with him. Not only known for his fashion design, he is also a critically acclaimed film director in his films A Single Man and Nocturnal Animals. Here are some quotes to help teach you how to improve your style:

1. “Figure out what your look is. I don’t wear a black suit-white shirt combination all the time to be ‘iconic’ but because I’m most comfortable in this and I don’t feel the need to experiment.” – Men’s Health Australia (June 2016)

2. “Always keep your jacket buttoned. If I had one rule for men, it’s this. It instantly makes your silhouette.” – The Fashionisto

3. “Never, ever, ever wear anything you are uncomfortable in. Because that is what you’ll project: ‘I look like a fool.’ Even if you don’t – you’ll be tentative and not your best.” – in conversation with Lady Kinvara Balfour at the Apple Store, London (April 2014)

4. “A man should try wearing a suit throughout a normal day. I do most things in a suit – and sometimes even in a tuxedo – so I’m really comfortable in one. I don’t believe in playing around much with suit cuts. I like a simple, classic shape that gives a man strong shoulders, a fitted waist, and long legs.” – The Fashionisto

5. “A good trick as you get older is to get a thick pair of glasses that have a dark frame. Everything else can droop and slide but that pair of dark glasses stays sharp and crisp.” – Esquire

6. “In the early seventies, I had shoulder-length hair, bell-bottom pants, love beads and shirts that laced up at the front. But then I smartened up.” – Esquire

7. “I didn’t grow up in a wealthy family. We were a middle-class American family. But we knew the rules. We knew that an afternoon wedding was a daytime suit, that black shoes were worn with blue suits and brown shoes with grey.” – The New York Times

8. “You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out in the world because that is a show of respect to the other people around you.” – AnOther

9. “If you’re at the Oscars, there’s not a man on that red carpet who is not wearing make-up. Most straight actors I know get quite used to it. Even when they go out in real life they grab some sort of bronzer and they throw it on. They dye their eyebrows, they dye their lashes – they know the tricks.” – GQ

10. “Even with a soft jaw, when you trim your beard well, you’ll look sharp and chiseled.” – GQ
