Tom Hanks receives regular fashion tips from top designer Tom Ford.
The Toy Story star was impressed by the fashion guru’s directorial debut A Single Man in 2008 and the overall look of the movie, and turned to him for style advice.
“A Single Man and (Ford’s follow-up) Nocturnal Animals were, essentially, low-budget movies without any cheap aesthetics or sacrifices, which takes a strong hand and a soft touch,” Hanks says.
“I’ve made a lot of films, but I find myself listening to Tom talk about directing a lot. Of course I still ask him fashion questions like a pilgrim who has climbed a mountain in search of wisdom, and he has imparted the most simple of answers – button the jacket, as it slims your form, use the pockets, as a jacket is like a man’s purse – just don’t get bulky. Cap-toed shoes go with everything.”
