"My jackets always have two sleeves, because people have two arms," jokes Ford in this talk from the 92Y.

Earlier this week, Tom Ford sat down with Fern Mallis of IMG (and she who basically organized New York Fashion Week) at the 92nd Street Y to discuss his work and career. Ford, as always, is smart, charming, self-aware, and completely candid. He talks about his relationship with Yves Saint Laurent after he took hold of the house's reigns, how he thinks plastic surgery is like designing clothing (including a sick but funny moment about "matching up the seams"), what it was like to take time off and make the film A Single Man, and being what he calls, a "commercial" fashion designer.
