Tom’s Ford morning routine is the stuff of legend. He gets up at 4.30am, indulges in the first of five baths a day, then spends his day in a state of undress, all whilst supping on a glass of iced coffee (he hates warm drinks). Or so 'legend' says.
Whilst the whole, ‘up at 4.30am’ element has us breaking out in cold sweats (not warm, we hate warm sweats), a recent Mr. Porter interview with the fashion behemoth revealed that his legendary morning routine has softened somewhat – yes, Tom Ford has become more human. Being a dad will do that to a person. Even Tom.
Let us present to you, Tom Ford’s new and improved morning routine…
Up at 4.30 a.m
This still stands, but is more to do with having sleeping problems, than having some unholy work ethic to adhere to.
Make a large iced coffee
He likes his coffee COLD. And sipped through a bendy straw. That’s one part of his routine we can totally get behind.
Email admin until 6 a.m.
The early bird catches the worm...
Make another ‘gigantic iced coffee’
Have a bath
According to Ford, 'I love that time in the morning when no one else is awake, and I’m alone, and then I can slowly come to life.'
Leave for the office at 9.00 a.m.
Us too Tom. Us too.
So there you have it. Minus the 4.30 a.m. start, and the bendy-straw-in-bath element, our routines share a certain synergy. Who knew we had so much in common with the First Man of Fashion?
