Before modeling he was at the university, studying marketing. His housemate suggested him to enter a modeling competition on ITV’s This Morning. As the half of the worlds famous people at the raise of their career, he thought his housemate was joking – but he entered his name into the competitors list for him behind David’s back and he went on to win, getting a contract with Select Models. In 2009 he was voted as the third most successful male model in the world by Forbes magazine. Gandy says that it wasn’t easy to break into the modeling industry: “The trend was for skinny, androgynous guys who had bodies more like girls” – he admits.

Men are still quite scared of the connotations of looking gay, even in 2010, but dressing well can be easy. You don’t have to buy a suit from the most expensive labels – you can pick one up from Zara or Marks & Spencer and for an extra £20 or £30 you could have it tailored to fit you perfectly – and nothing really looks better than a tailored suit. And because we’re limited to jeans, T-shirts and suits, it’s important to be confident with accessories to look good.” – Gandy says. And we are going to look through his dressing habits to find out if he’s right:

Gandy’s style is definitely masculine. He doesn’t provide an example of tailored perfection. He keeps it simple wearing well-fitting denim and bold leather. His tailoring is never overloaded by bulky amounts of accessories. They are kept rarely: a pocket square and tie. A focus on fit and simplistic garments are in his habit of dressing. For example,  Gandy’s casual look involves a jacket with little more than a t-shirt and scarf.

Well, Gandy makes it good with simplicity and style, it’s only us to get some inspiration and go shopping now.
