This afternoon I spent nearly three hours reading about this man. I adore him, well who doesn't. He is amazing, his interviews are always delightful and memorable. He's just the perfect epitome of a modern gentleman, as they say.
"When I was a little kid, all I wanted to do was to escape what I thought was the country and get to a city. Probably film and television had influenced me so much, I really thought the key to happiness was living a very artificial life in a penthouse in New York with martini glasses." [Interview Magazine]
"Manners are very important and actually knowing when things are appropriate. I always open doors for women, I carry their coat, I make sure that they’re walking on the inside of the street. Stand up when people arrive at and leave the dinner table." [AnOther Magazine]
"And I’m one of the least materialistic people that exist, because material possessions don’t mean much to me. They’re beautiful, I enjoy them, they can enhance your life to a certain degree, but they’re ultimately not important. Your connections with other people are important, our connection to the earth. And that’s why I go to New Mexico as often as I can. And what I find to be the most beautiful thing in the world now is nature—sunsets, trees, my horses."
At last, maybe you've read this, maybe you haven't. Well maybe you want to read it again, Tom Ford and Richard Buckley Forever.
