Tom Ford Wears His Shirts Open to Prevent Migraines


Racked has a look at what you can expect from the upcoming June 24 OWN Visionaries program on designer/director Tom Ford, including this revelation:

"I wear my shirts open because ties give me a headache. I can only wear them for a few hours and then I start to get a migraine."

Who knew that the heavage trend was facilitated by a medical condition?

  1. Fine with me.

    I would rather see this than another gross pic of the Situation's distorted abdominals. Fuccen nasty.

  3. I've never liked Ford but he is right. I too get migraines and ties around your neck will trigger migraine headaches, at least they do for me!

  4. Hot and talented, but Ford ain't no scholar by any stretch of the imagination.

  6. The one time I went into his Madison Avenue store I got a migraine. Still uncertain as to whether it was the price of the shoes I looked at ($11,200.) or the thick scent in the air.

  7. As a designer he should know his wrong sized collar is causing the problem, not the tie. For Ford, it must be psychosomatic.

  8. Tom Ford doesn't like fat people.

  10. I always find him very entertaining. I just hope he doesn't take what he says seriously himself.

  12. good ties belong on other body parts during sex anyway -- like the wrists -- LOL

  13. So it's not just me? Good. I refuse to work where I have to strangle myself.

  14. I suppose it is a gentleman’s prerogative to choose any placebo that works for him. Should the unwashed masses follow suit?

  15. Whatever the reason, I for one am always happy to see a little of Tom's chest. The more the better, in fact, when is his sex tape going to come out?

  16. Ha ha! So that's why he always has several buttons undone!

  17. I totally buy this. Anything is possible! Wearing certain hats or a headband can give me a headache. Don't even try putting a wig on me. Feels like I'm being smothered. And nail polish makes my fingers feel heavy. Cannot stand it. #weirdness

    @bad boy humor: they should follow unsuited, apparently.

  19. Tom Ford is attractive, talented, and successful. He is also an idiot.

  20. I find him kind of sleazy, but I also hate wearing ties or hats for any length of time---anything constricting bothers me after an hour or so. They make me feel hot and I sometimes get headaches, so this makes sense to me. Good thing I work from home!

  21. By his logic, a full head of hair must also cause migraines.

  22. I wore a dress shirt and tie every day for 2-3 months at a teaching job, and was getting terrible headaches every day around 4:00-6:00, and I could feel the muscles in the back left side of my neck just throbbing. Now I alternate dress shirts with nice T-shirts, and get headaches less frequently. There very well could be something to this. (And I like seeing Tom COMPLETELY undressed.)

  23. One of the world's sexiest men
