JT and Jay-Z Suit Up With Tom Ford
Why this unlikely trio collaborated on Justin Timberlake's single, "Suit & Tie."
They say that the suit makes the man, and whether or not that's true, when you're talking about a Tom Ford suit, it certainly makes the man stylish.
The famed fashion designer has suited some of Hollywood's best-dressed men, including Daniel Craig for all the James Bond flicks. So it's no surprise that Justin Timberlake turned to Ford to help him suit up for the music video for his his new fashion-focused single "Suit & Tie," which features rapper Jay-Z.
And it looks like you'll be seeing Ford's "made-to-measure tailoring and accessories" throughout JT's new album, "The 20/20 Experience," WWD reports.
"I adore Justin. He has innate style and enormous talent," Ford told the WWD. "It has been such a pleasure and honor to work with him throughout the entire creative process."
If the three-piece suit and black two-piece tuxedo JT dons in the video for Suit & Tie as he sings, "As long as I've got my suit and tie/Imma leave it all on the floor tonight," is any indication, you can expect the fashion from his new album to be setting trends on the red carpet.
Timberlake's stylish single and recent collaboration with Ford, whose suits are synonymous with style, isn't a huge surprise. Not only is Timberlake one of the red carpet's most stylish men, but he's also tried his hand at design. The 31-year-old has been the co-designer of William Rast clothing line, which has shown at New York Fashion Week, for almost a decade.
