VIDEO STANCE NO.43
MR. DAVID GANDY
This weekend’s inaugural London Collections : Men saw ‘The Count’ dropping a triptych of three-piece stances. Sunday on Savile Row outside Hardy Amies we got treated to ice-cream and Gandy-in-a-Glen-Check. Gotta love Dave for heartily supporting Brit-Street. Also for even-handily and consistently mixing his designers, his tailors and his high street. G’wan Gandy: leader of Alpha men.
GANDY’S STANCE BREAKDOWN
-October House (click) Glen-check three piece with squared off vest. October House is the tailoring business co-founded/owned by that chipper, always smartly turned out TV present Dave Berry. Not quite as smart as my one off the telly, but, yes Dave! Saw you looking proper on the Friday. Dave in Dave. Whatever next tailoring fans?
-Russell&Bromley Oxford in caramel leather. Cant even find more than a holding page. Hash tag fail.
-Reiss knitted tie in chocolate-ish colour. This depends which chocolate we’re talking about to be honest. Butterscotch G&B anyone?
-Thomas Pink Shirt (click) in special Bengal stripe Is pretty nice, yeah? Thanks for the link, from Jermyn Streets new Beau, Andre De Trich’.
-Breitling Navitimer (click) – have to ask Agent Massey the model spec- I’m more about tie/pocket square nuance than movement fact. Massey? I know you’re about to have a baby, baby, but this is style crucial.*
Stubbs is out of The Metropolis.
* Additional note from Agent Massey: “It is a 1970’s Navitimer Cosmonaute. The Navitimer was originally launched in 1952 and has been in production longer than any other Swiss mechanical chronograph. A rare sighting indeed. Impressed.”
