How to dress like David Gandy


We decode one of the most stylish gentlemen around today, and it's easier than you think...

David Gandy and Oliver Cheshire London Collections Men 2015

It’s got to be a hard life being David Gandy. As he’s the world’s most famous, in-demand male model, he gets to travel to the most beautiful locations on the planet, mingle with the most stunning women around, and he regularly drives all the latest supercars. Of course, he gets access to the finest clothes money can buy, too.

It’s how he wears his clothes that really sets him apart though, and not content with letting his looks do the talking, he regularly tops numerous best-dressed lists, and it’s easy to see why. He’s just as at home wearing a perfectly tailored three-piece suit as he is rocking jeans and a t-shirt, so it’s in this respect that we must look at him as a true icon of style.

And so, gentleman, whilst Gandy may have the athletic physique (which gave him the spotlight for Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue perfume campaign) and style to match, fear not, as we decode his secret to looking tirelessly cool…

The bomber jacket

Usually sticking to classic pieces, David Gandy dresses in a timeless manner and this is no more prevalent than in his day-to-day, casual wear. As a man who steers clear from bold patterns and other unnecessaries, it’s clear why a staple velvet bomber jacket finesses a relaxed, casual vibe that is ideal for traversing about town. Top tip, make sure your layers are coordinated, and keep the sleeves rolled up, too.

The 3-piece suit

When Gandy does tailoring, it’s fair to say that he does it exceptionally well. Regularly opting for a three-piece suit, he’s always immaculately turned out, and his choice of fabric and ability to mix timeless patterns is really top-notch. What’s more, a contrasting waistcoat in a Prince of Wales check rests perfectly against a plain grey suit – now that’s power dressing at its best, gents.
