If the above sounds like the sort of advice you might get from a tinpot mystic at a funfair, just bear with me for a moment. The quote actually comes from a big shot of the fashion world – Tom Ford. He imparted this advice to a group of Brits some years ago when he gave them a make-over. Rather than just sticking to the classic glow-up formula and dishing out fresh haircuts and new togs, he encouraged the chaps to think carefully about their futures and to dress themselves in line with their aspirations. In essence, he was encouraging a kind of updated version of good old 1980s power-dressing.
