Ahh, I will never forget Tom Fords first show for Gucci 1995. Those velvet pants, 70's style skinny satin shirts erotically unbuttoned to show off your immaculate belly button, Kate Moss and Amber Valetta strutting under an indigo blue light & then Madonna at the VHI awards in the outfit, hot of the catwalk and then the 1996 fashion show with the amazing white sheath Halston- style dresses slashed to the naval...

This outfit changed the style of the whole Generation X- Madonna at the VH1 1995 Music Awards from top to toe in Gucci by Tom Ford

You still could wear it- Gucci by Tom Ford AW 1996

In 2004 after 15 years with Gucci and a stint as creative director at YSL he was powered out and in regards to problems with company who owned Gucci and YSL he left. The fashion world was shocked yet Tom Ford could not resist a long abstinence from fashion even with a promising film career starting with his direction of the highly acclaimed film A Single Man. Slowly but persistently he started  building his own brand Tom Ford. He first started with sunglasses later than expanding into very exclusive menswear and for a couple of years he is pack with women wear, perfume and cosmetics.

And exactly the sunglasses are one of my favorites  It just can not get cooler as with a pair of Tom Ford aviator sunglasses. For Fall Winter 2012-212, the designer presents seven new sunglasses frames and twenty one optical frames. The collection signifies just the best in eyeglasses craftsmanship and luxury with the typical super- trendy and super sexy Tom Ford seventies influences.

70's beards and furs yet so 2012- Tom Ford Eyewear add campaign AW 2012

I had a look around for you, my readers, and I found the e-retailer and independent gents boutique Jonathan Trumbull and Hatters from Norwich, UK who are offering great Tom Ford eye wear to excellent prices. I prefer these small retailers to the big ones since they very often sell great brands less expensive and you can even snatch items from the currents collection already up to 50% reduced ( just as a tip from a shopaholic). My choice from the Tom Ford AW 2012 eye wear collection from Jonathan Trumbull and Hatters is as followed:

Tom Ford Tortoise Shell Frame Silvano Sunglasses from a selection by Jonathan Trumbull and Hatters 

Tom Ford Black Charles Sunglasses from a selection by Jonathan Trumbull and Hatters

Tom Ford Silver Charles Sunglasses from a selection by Jonathan Trumbull and Hatters
Jonathan Trumbull and Hatters does not only offer Tom Ford eye wear for men- they also sell other great brands like Hackett, Armani, C.P. company and many more. They just know what the modern fashionable men wants- have a look!
