Who is David Gandy

David Gandy is the world’s most famous, in-demand male model. It’s got to be a hard life: travelling to the most beautiful locations on the planet, mingling with the most stunning women around, getting to drive all the latest supercars. Of course, he also gets access to the finest clothes money can buy.

What makes him such a style icon?

It’s how he wears his clothes that really sets him apart. Not content with letting his looks do all 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.

How can you look more like him?

While David may have the athletic physique and fashion sense that most gentlemen can only dream about, his overall style is surprisingly not that difficult to copy. Here, we’ve broken down two of his most distinct looks:

Top tip: make sure your layers are coordinated, and keep the sleeves rolled up.
