Ford City
Tuxedos and Cufflinks from Tom Ford

Tom Ford
Fact #1: Tom Ford makes great tuxedos.

Fact #2: You look great in a tuxedo.

So... yeah. You two crazy kids should probably get together.

We suggest you do it here: Tom Ford, a new emporium of all of the designer’s finery (yes, that includes five-figure cufflinks), now open in the Gold Coast.

We’re not going to lie to you: this place feels a little imposing at first. It probably has something to do with the 15-foot marble walls. If you need a drink to settle your nerves, head upstairs to the VIP salon, which has its own bar.

Once relaxed, you’ll want to proceed to the men’s section, located in a salon filled with perfectly cut flannel slacks and jacquard-embroidered dinner jackets. You’ll know you’re there when you see a fireplace and an Alexander Calder mobile. Or if you’re sitting on a plush sofa.

Of course, don’t be surprised if you get distracted by some other luxury items. A $10,000 pair of diamond-studded, skull-shaped cufflinks. A cigar cutter made from a ram’s horn. A cologne that contains orchids from Ford’s personal garden. In case you’d like to smell like Tom Ford...

Or his flowerpot.
