David Gandy – Top Ten Three Piece Suits
January in the menswear world means London Collections: Men – a three-day extravaganza where the eyes of the world’s fashionistas are upon us.
Except that most of those eyes are fixed on one man – the UK ambassador for the event, and possibly the most handsome man on the planet: David Gandy.
This month’s Icon would probably look great in a bin liner. Instead, however, he chooses to wear three-piece bespoke suits pretty much 24/7, and we don’t think anyone has ever made them look so good.
If you’re a fan of waistcoats, read on. Mr Gandy wears a variety of waistcoat styles with great success.
Our Top 10 3 Piece Suits Worn by David Gandy
David Gandy Dark Grey Three Piece Suit
A business suit with a twist – simple shades of grey with a crisp white shirt and collar bar. Gandy is ignoring the waistcoat button rule, but we’ll let him off when it looks this good!
David Gandy Navy Tonic Three Piece Suit
Is it a lounge suit or is it eveningwear? Blue mohair with a six button waistcoat for a slightly higher cut.
Double breasted plaid with copper window pane checks – a bold suit played down with very simple accessories.
David Gandy Black Three Piece Suit
A shawl collar in black worsted, this suit is understated yet very unique. This time the waistcoat is only 4 buttons, so it’s cut much lower.
David Gandy Pale Blue Three Piece Suit
Milled finish sky blue with peak lapels – a really interesting combination that works especially well those accessories. The cream buttons are fantastic
David Gandy Pale Grey Three Piece Suit
Quintessentially British. Classic Prince of Wales (Glen Urquhart) check – once again accessorised with great panache.

Mixing it up: a great example of how to get more outfits out of your suit collection. Note that the shirt is blue – just to add a little colour.

This is a glorious suit and probably the best wedding suit on this list: milled finish windowpane with a double-breasted waistcoat.

The term ‘pinstripe’ refers to the very thin, parallel lines that run through a cloth, contrasting with the main colour. Taken at face value, it would seem to be a fairly bland description of a simple fabric pattern.
