How about you get more worked up over the issue of Syria that Tom is raising rather than what he wears to bed. Get a life
Hello dear anon,
I would have liked to respond to your lovely message in private, but since you very bravely posted it anonymously, I’ll just have to answer here.
Let me ask you a question: how do you know the degree of “worked-up-ness” I have over the issue of Syria, just based on this post?
This is a Tom Hiddleston blog which focuses on his clothes, so it is logical I would write something about what he is wearing, right?
Despite the fact that I don’t owe you any explanation for whatever I post here, I’d like to say that I agree with the fact that the issue in Syria is worth worrying about. As are many of the crises our world faces today due to one main reason: HATE.
So, instead of wasting time to leave anonymous hate mail asking me to get a life, get a hold of yours and use the qualities I’m sure you have to try and change the lives of those less fortunate than yourself.
Because “getting worked up” over issues isn’t enough. What is needed is real ACTION.

And an added note:
There are many different types of tumblr, and as should have been made quite clear by now, we are exclusively an entertainment and fashion blog. We exist to create a few laughs, to make people happy, and to remove them from the everyday doom and gloom that seems to be so very abundant these days. Activism is absolutely terrific, of course, and caring about world issues is of the utmost importance. But so is keeping up your own morale, and I believe that our silly comments on pictures of Tom’s clothing really do achieve that for a lot of people. And when people are happy, they’re able to focus better on issues such as the Syria crisis - you can’t be fueled by misery alone, you simply have to take a break from it on occasion.
So I’m sorry, anon, that we can’t do it all, but don’t mistake our silence for complacency or ignorance. We are doing our part for this problem, just not in the way that you might have come to expect.

P.S. Anon hate? Cowardly. If you’re afraid of backlash and you need to send a message on anon, well, maybe you shouldn’t be sending it.
Hi! Please make your background color a little darker.. like dark blue, dark grey... just darker please so that its easier on the eyes.. I visit your blog everyday... am not really getting used to the background color... couldn't browse your site for long... coz its hard on the eyes after a few minutes..
Of course, sorry! I’ll adjust it right away and make it several shades darker for you. Don’t want to hurt anyone’s eyes, how on earth would they be able to see Tom Hiddleston’s hilarious fashion choices then? What a disaster that would be indeed.
Would you mind telling us the source of the quote you posted recently where Tom is talking about his fashion choices when he was young? I'm not finding it when I search on google. "As a child, and as a teenager, I was, uh… hopeless. I didn’t really get it. You know, it was just if something was comfortable, I would wear that. I was kind of like, I had this sort of skate fashion, I wore these baggy pants and hats and baggy t-shirts."
A wonderful follower submitted a video link where Tom talks about all of this stuff!!
How do I send you a photo? Why haven't you commented on Toms horribly stretched pants, red plaid shirt and dirty sneakers in the follow up pic of him and Rodney Crowell at Wheatland Music Fest ?!?!** looks like he slept in them! Thanks. Love your blog
Hello dear, here are the answers to your questions:
To send a photo, you have to click the submit button on the right hand side of the blog (it says IV). You can also click here.
This post is a brief description of what you are asking for. True, we cannot see the trousers, but to make up for it, you can see the 12 chest hairs!!
However, we love yo make you guys happy. Therefore:
It certainly looks like he slept on them!! Maybe he just wanted to blend in with the ordinary humans? I mean, it’s perfectly possible: the whole look screams “MUSIC FESTIVAL, HERE I AM”.
And he’s wearing COLOUR EVERYBODY!!! Even if it’s a shirt we’ve seen 28479320163291875643817564018754301 times. So yeah, definitely trying to blend in. On a side note, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that shirt ironed out.
I remember when we first saw those shoes. They were a brilliant white it almost blinded with their light (although admittedly that might have been Tom himself. He tends to have that effect). And now look at them.
This just proves to us again that Thomas William Hiddleston only dresses like a knight going to a royal wedding, or a hobo. There is no in-between.
Also, those boring grey trousers would be passable if they at least weren’t so fucking loose. I mean, no showcase of the long legs of doom, no crotchular area asphyxiation, no nothing! Give us something to work with!
Last but not least, please enjoy our darling Thomas performing a song at the festival. He’s such a cutie patootie!!
Girl, I have been trolling your site for the last half hour and I have to say that you have the gift of a very awesome sense of humor that I haven't come across in quite some time. You go girl. Where do you come up with this funny shit anyway?
We have an army of miniature Hiddlestoners that we carry around in our pockets and shake until they come up with witty comments for the blog - honestly, it’s scandalous that we’re getting away it.
But in all seriousness, glad you like the blog, and that you think we’re funny. Well, we think we’re funny, but we’ve been informed that that’s not necessarily accurate.
P.S. Correction: you go girls. We actually have three admins maintaining this thing: Admin M (the original and the greatest), Admin Shakes (the not-really-new-enough-to-call-new-but-still-cool kid on the block) and little old me, Admin Geekchic. It’s a busy operation behind the scenes here.
re: blue casual shirt - i think it just looks grayer in the pic with jim because of the lighting/poor camera quality. and it looks tighter in the coriolanus pics because he was buffer back then.
I actually think that there is a lot of merit in those comments, dear anon. Tom is a little less built these days - not that we don’t love his slender frame just as much - and the quality of that snap is fairly terrible.
But hey, can you blame me for having the absurdly optimistic idea that the man owns two bloody t-shirts? A girl can but hope.
sorry to rain on your parade but I think that tshirt is the same blue tshirt that has been worn to death (u know the one in coriolanus rehearsal, rtc rehearsal, all the fan interactions in Toronto) . U can see the slight wear and tear at the neckline in the middle. It's probably pulled back a little, so u cant see the snag in the neckline. And Of course, it's loose. It's been worn by Sir Hiddles for an enternity and hence lost all its elasticity!!
Ah, now initially I thought so too! But on further examination, the Coriolanus shirt is quite definitely different. It is considerably more blue than the more recent one, which is really closer to grey, in my eyes, and fits somewhat more tightly - check out that superior nipple definition. Plus, the Coriolanus shirt is a bit pulled at the front of the neck, whereas the Toronto trailer shirt looks to be in pretty good shape.
No, I really am willing to say that this is a new item of clothing. Maybe you’re right and I’m wrong - it could just be optimism after all. But to my eyes, this looks like a brave dive into the terrifying world of casualwear for our Thomas; there are interesting days to come, my friends, many interesting, important days to come.
Just FYI Geekchic, Nike calls that "tick" a Swoosh.
I would like to inform you that upon discovering our wonderful blog, and after much consideration, Nike has decided to start calling the “swoosh” a “tick”.
Also, all member states of the UN have unanimously signed and ratified a Resolution by which all signatories agree to address our dear admin Geekchic only as her Imperial Royal Awesomeness Admin Geekchic, Duchess of Tomismonochromaticallyfabulousland. We politely ask you to refer to her only as such. Bow to your ruler and show her due respect.
Thank you for your attention,
(Oh gosh I don’t know what happened here. Post exam euphoria I suppose. Forgive me, people)
