We were having a talk about whether having a uniform was stylish and the one person we kept coming back to was Thom Browne. He’s known for always wearing his grey suit with a white shirt and tie, and has been a major catalyst in bringing this aesthetic back in a big way. Although we might not find his particular style to be the most appealing, we really respect his philosophy behind it.
There is definitely something to be said for the man who has an attachment to an aesthetic. We really liked Colin Firth’s character George’s approach to uniform in Tom Ford’s film A Single Man. For him, he sees his uniform as a part of himself. He is not complete until he is wearing the clothes he is most comfortable with. We’ve attached some photos from Thom Browne’s ad campaigns showing his particular affinity for uniformity. We’d love to hear your thoughts on whether or not a uniform is stylish.
