Era of Prominence: 2011-present
Though Jay-Z doesn't walk around in suits all day, he does know when formal wear is needed. And when it is needed, more often than not, Hov wears Tom Ford. He made the announcement of the new Brooklyn Nets team while wearing one of Ford's designs. He also wore the label during his Carnegie Hall shows. When he got with Justin Timberlake for their "Suit and Tie" track, both were also outfitted by the American designer. It's probably safe to say that Tom Ford is Jay's go-to for suits. Ford is, after all, the only one who got a song named after him in the upcoming Magna Carta Holy Grail.
