Get the Look – David Gandy
Who is David Gandy?
David Gandy, what a guy! Great looks, fabulous dress sense and what’s even better is he’s from Essex!
He’s been spotted in advertisements, on the catwalk and has been a brand ambassador for some of the best names around – is there anything this man can’t do?
After winning a televised competition in 2001, Gandy became a successful model. He soon caught the eye of Italian fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana and they featured him in their fashion shows and campaigns.
How to Dress Like David Gandy
David Gandy is certainly one with the ladies. You’ll find it hard to find a woman out there who wouldn’t date him. Rumoured to have dated the likes of Mollie King (The Saturdays), Laura Whitmore (TV Presenter) and most recent bae Stephanie Mendoros (Barrister) – we can’t help but be a little bit jealous.
We know what you’re asking yourself, how can we dress like this dapper chap (and hopefully be as successful with the ladies?) Here’s how…
The Three-Piece Suit
Being a super model, it is inevitable that Gandy is frequently attending star-studded red carpet events and as it’s his profession to look good, it’s important he delivers the goods.
Dressing in a fitted three piece suit should do the trick – he chooses jackets that are sharply cut, giving him a cosy fit at the waist and allows a one button fastener to seal the deal.
He makes the suit into his own individual style by mix-matching the top and bottom half (always keeping the material the same). He adds a further unique edge by playing with different colours for his shirt and tie combination.
Leather jackets are only for hairy bikers or people still living in the 1950’s, right? Wrong. Every modern-day man should hold a leather jacket, suitable for their shape and size, in their wardrobe. There are so many types around nowadays there’s absolutely no excuse not to.
David Gandy is a huge fan of the leather jacket and pulls it off with style. When choosing a jacket it’s important to get the right fit for your shape. The perfect leather jacket should hit exactly on your shoulders and hug you comfortably around your body (albeit not too tight).
You Can Leave Your Hat On
David Gandy is a man who embraces the hat. For a lot of men head wear can be a tricky call as not everybody can pull of certain types of hat. The key here is to play around with different styles to see what suits you.
The main man Gandy is often seen in the classics, either an old school flat cap or a flat fedora. Wearing one of these hats with a more formal outfit instantly creates a casual edge that brings a certain array of coolness others around you won’t have. Be unique, try it for yourself.
