TOO MANY TOMS: There was no identity theft intended on the part of Mr Porter, whose staffer Tom Ford has been sending out e-mails about the upcoming launch of the men’s wear e-commerce site. Earlier this week, Tom Ford’s company released a terse statement saying it has no involvement in the Mr Porter business, and that none of its products will be sold on the site.

A source at the site added that nothing untoward was intended, and that Tom Ford — the other one — was simply doing his job. British GQ, meanwhile, should put the matter to rest with its March issue.
