Tom Ford and Mr Porter have released a 54-piece capsule collection that’ll turn your summer wardrobe into the very best it can be. Mr Porter’s always been the go-to site for incredibly made classic menswear pieces as well as up-to-the-minute trend items. Their collaborations and capsule collections are always on the cutting edge of fashion and luxury.
Tom Ford is, among other things (producer, director, fashion god), the menswear designer who turned Gucci from a staid, boring brand in the mid ’90s into the sexy, iconic designer beast that it is today. Since 2005, Ford has run his eponymously named fashion label and turned it into a global powerhouse. That label’s offerings have changed the way men think about (and wear) fashion in everything from colors to fabrications.
Inspired by tropical getaways and the vibrant setting of Los Angeles in the 70s, the collection is full of lush brightly printed florals, classic neutral tones, and eye-pleasing colors. There are items for day, night, work and play. Go formal with linen suit separates and spend an evening wearing a silk blue-and-black-hued jacquard blazer. Off to work or play? Wear the incredibly handsome suede trucker jacket, slim fitted polo,and tan jeans. Lounge in color-coordinated sweats, sweaters (or cardigans) and printed silk pajama pants. There’s also swimwear and a sophisticated-looking silk-twill robe.
Of course, accessories round out the collection. Wrap around your wrist Tom Ford’s Ocean Plastic watch with its new pink rope braided band. Slip into purple velvet smoking slippers, or suede espadrilles, or (yes, there’s more) sneakers or leather-trimmed thong sandals. You can peer out in the world behind a pair of his shades, and then toss all your essentials in his leather-trimmed tote bag.
Prices for accessories range from $445 for a pair of sunglasses, $890 for a braided belt, to $3630 for the leather-trimmed tote. The clothing starts at $290 for a lyocell-cotton blend T-shirt to $7,790 for the suede jacket.
Check out a few of our picks from the 54-piece Tom Ford exclusive collection for Mr Porter.
Tom Ford Slim Fit Floral Print Swim Shorts
Tom Ford Garment-Dyed Fleece Back Cotton-Jersey Zip-Up Hoodie
Made in Italy, this cozy hoodie is the type that once you zip it up, you’ll never want to take it off. Garment dyed so that it never fades, the hoodie has a leather-trimmed zipper pull tab and a small logo patch on the front.
Tom Ford Suede Trucker Jacket
This trucker jacket is a work of art. While it also comes in white, why not go bold with the blue suede? We don’t want to tell you how much it costs, but if you can afford it you probably don’t care.
Tom Ford Button-Down Collar Printed Shirt
Tom Ford’s been mining retro prints this season, and this button-down shirt is an excellent example of what he’s been doing with them. Made exclusively for Mr Porter, this button-down shirt would look great paired with jeans or chinos. It could be worn open over a designer men’s t-shirt or buttoned up and peeping out from a blazer or sweater.
Tom Ford Timepieces 002 40mm Plastic Ocean Watch
Made in Switzerland, this updated 002 model men’s watch has a quartz movement, is water-resistant and made from recycled ocean plastic. You can tell time at night because the hands and indices are coated with Super LumiNova for easy reading.
Tom Ford Aviator-Style Tortoiseshell Acetate Sunglasses
We love Tom Ford eyewear, and these sunglasses should give you a sense of the reason why. These tortoiseshell sunglasses have light green lenses and were created exclusively for the capsule collection. They come with their own case.

Talk about making an entrance! This men’s bathrobe is too cool just to wear at home. The vibrantly printed silk twill dressing gown is piped in solid purple, has two front patch pockets, and is lined in solid color silk.
