Tom Ford Does Not Want You Fatties In His Store

Tom Ford, clearly, unlike Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld, you never had a phase where you were not beautiful (I know because I’ve looked for pictures). So why must you be so hard on the less aesthetically fortunate? XXL investor Jean Pigozzi remarked to Vanity Fair:

He told Ford after visiting his men’s store, “Tom, I went to your shop. I couldn’t buy a handkerchief. Tom said, ‘You know why? I don’t want big fat guys like you in my shop’

Tom, not everyone can hide behind a massive perfume bottle, some people have to hide behind massive brightly patterned shirts. Pigozzi is launching a boutique called Limoland in the meat-packing district. Of the quote, he replies, “”I think he’s making a mistake because big guys like me have the money!”

    what?? Sure, Tom Ford, you only want tasteful and attractive people in your stores, which is why you pimped the Gucci label into label-whore bait. This is probably also why you have a store in a casino…

    You should embrace big old rich guys who don’t work out and wear comically unflattering shirts.
