Tom Brown vs Thom Browne

I'm sadly quite excited...

My laziest and scruffiest friend, Tom Brown, has finally seen the light and asked me to help him with a re-style. When you see a picture you will realise how necessary this is!

The reason for my excitement is that firstly, it's much needed, and secondly, there is a great American fashion designer (with the same name) who specialises in smart clothes, so why not try and put the two together, and see if I can influence my Tom's style a bit?! Whyyy not.

So, this is Tom in his every day wear...

Much needed I hope you will agree?

Here's another 'cause it makes me laugh:

Ok, enough of the cruelty. More about the 'real' Thom Browne. For those unfamiliar with him, he is an American menswear fashion designer, head of his own self titled company based in New York. He won GQ Designer of the Year in November, last year.

The clothing line was created as a 'response to the broad acceptance of casual wear for work instead of typical formal wear'. Signature looks include cropped suit trousers, ties and overcoats made in matching classic wool fabrics, and non-ironed button down shirt

As you can see, the pair are about as opposite as they come, but for how much longer?! Keep checking to see how the makeover goes!
