Could Tom Ford, design genius, creative polymath and one of the world’s most stylish men, have had a wrong opinion when it comes to fashion?
In a new interview with WSJ. Magazine, Ford, 60, discussed his approach to parenting his son Jack, nine, particularly since the recent death of his husband and partner of 35 years, fashion journalist Richard Buckley, in September.
“You know, I don’t let Jack wear shorts to school, and the other kids are in shorts,” he said of the typical primary school attire in Los Angeles, where he lives. “I’ll say to him, ‘You’re never wearing shorts to school. Don’t ask again. Not happening. When you turn 18, you can wear whatever you want.’ It was only recently that I let him wear T-shirts with stuff printed on it.”
