Ooh how I admire Tom Ford's gangster prowess. I'll compare it to that of Frank Lucas; in reference to strategy. Ford has been building a succesful label, since parting with the House of Gucci in '04. And, according to www.style.com, he will be opening a store in L.A.---directly across from Gucci (on Rodeo Drive, of course). No one on the corner has swagger like Tom!
