As we all know, fashion, trends have a unique way of slowly fading away in time, it’s those classy timeless things that will always stick around. My advice is to search for what suits you best and go with it. Dress for you, a concept that definitely defines the ”cool dude of the week” about whom we will talk about.
Yes, you ‘ve guessed, time to talk about David Gandy’s style. Classy but always modern, Gandy has proven to pull off dressing like a real modern day gent. He’s a trendsetter and a true fashion inspiration for all men out there.
The image that Gandy exploits is that of the modern British gentleman characterized by masculinity and a lot of high class. A personal signature that is out there for over 15 years. His wardrobe includes mostly dandy classy suits but also modern items like jackets and denim shirts.
His avoidance of trend orientated fashion swings ensures he maintains a classically sophisticated style often with a modern tailoring twist. All about a clean fresh look, meticulous cuts and a lot of confidence.
Gandy is the ultimate modern gentleman with a touch of old-school rebel.
David Gandy – Beginnings
David Gandy began his career in an era where many of the designers favored skinny and androgynous models. Thanks to the italian duo Dolce & Gabbana, the 6′ 2″ tall, muscled Gandy was given his first big break as the face of their 2007 fragrance campaign for Light Blue. That was the real deal for him, from here to the international fashion stages there was just a small step.
He was hailed by British GQ as one of the most stylish men of the 2000s, a privilege that landed him his first cover for the publication in 2015. Gandy has been a fixture on the street style scene, particular during men’s fashion week. In London he’s the go-to man for style inspiration, and he often outshines the try-hard fashion guys looking to peacock attention from the street photographers.
Ok, let’s look at his favourite formal, smart casual and casual looks.
A True Dandy -Three-Piece Suit
A good tailored suit is the big deal, choose your right color and the right size and you’ve got the Gandy look.
An item to always consider having in your wardrobe. The leather jacket is practical and cool at same time. The jacket is more than a go out with your friends item, you can look really dandy with this piece. For Gandy this item is as important as the suit – perfect as a classy street style statement look. The leather jacket has been a fixture in Gandy’s off-duty wardrobe, which he’ll often pair with smart tailored trousers, vintage jeans, or even a cotton waistcoat and neck scarf. The jacket is also an ideal alternative to a blazer.
A Classy Coat
A cool coat is always a smart move. Spring or winter, Gandy knows the importance of a good quality coat. It goes perfectly with a suit, building that dandy exclusive look that can never be obtained with a regular jacket. Black, gray or even a statement white one, this item adds value to your fancy look
His casual street style is always a combination between classy items merged with some swaggy ones like a white t-shirt or a washed denim shirt. Ye don’t forget about the dark wash classy jeans :). A pair of dark wash jeans can coordinate with anything. Double denim can work if you mix up the color tone. Like in most of Gandy’s looks, we can see even here that blend between 40-50 years old classy male look and that gangsta New York guy meets James Dean kinda vibe.
Gandy is a classy dude and a true modern gentleman, his style is his signature and his signature is his way of life!
