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 spokesman for Mr Porter, which is set to launch later this month, would only confirm that Tom Ford is a copywriter for the site, which is being launched by the team at Net-a-porter.com. He declined further comment. 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. The magazine features a picture of the Mr Porter staff with an accompanying story and shows the youthful Ford with a full head of hair and wearing a jacket, white shirt and tie.
