As impeccable as Tom Ford looks (always), I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for the rumpled and the deconstructed. Yes, the angular accents of Mr. Ford’s peak lapels and infallibly knotted bow ties rival those of 007 himself; but the subtle imperfections of the unlined, notch-lapeled blazer delights the late Victorian in me. Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto isn’t often seen in this kind of light, with tags like “avant-garde” hiding a deep historical sensibility in his work. Take this blazer: three-button, indigo, notch lapels, and constructed with a linen that accentuates the form-fitting deconstruction. Ready for your daguerreotype close-up?
