Last year, Justin Timberlake wore a Tom Ford tuxedo to his recent surprise wedding to actress and longtime girlfriend Jessica Biel. And he was one of the best-dressed men at Jan. 27's SAG Awards, again wearing the designer's elegant menswear.
We’re talking head-to-toe Tom Ford at the SAGs: a notch-lapel silk/linen slim hopsack suit in a black, brown and gray check pattern; a pale brown gingham shirt; gray knit tie with a gold collar bar; black leather loafers. The coup de grace? A brown-and-white silk pocket square.
And in Timberlake's new music video, “Suit & Tie,” he’s also seen wearing Ford’s designs, from shoes to suits, glasses to cufflinks, tie tacks to pocket squares.
The video has a moody, ultra-cool Sinatra-esque vibe, with Justin getting painstakingly groomed and dressed, driving in his car and smoking while sitting at a piano.
But the music video definitely feels more like an extended luxury fashion ad. Especially when Timberlake blatantly flashes a Tom Ford necktie label. And even more so when Jay-Z (also singing on the track) mentions Ford, designer Alexander Wang and the high-end, hip All Saints boutique.
Jay-Z raps: "This is trouble season. Tom Ford tuxedos for no reason. All Saints for my angel. Alexander Wang, too. Ass-tight denim and some Dunks. I'll show you how to do this young."
And there’s more fashion to come. Timberlake and Ford have collaborated extensively on the style of Timberlake's new album, The 20/20 Experience, which drops on Mar. 19.
According to the official announcement, "Ford worked closely with Timberlake and his team to provide made-to-measure tailoring, including evening wear, suiting, shirting, ties, shoes and accessories that will be a focal point of the The 20/20 Experience."
