Revealed: David Gandy’s favourite suit

David Gandy talking at the Concours on Savile Row last month

David Gandy, the entrepreneur known to many as Mr Savile Row, revealed a little secret to the crowds teeming up and down during the recent Concours event there. He was asked: So David, if you had to pick just one suit, what would be your favourite?

For a man known for his elegance and style, this is no easy question, especially as he has worked with so many up and down the Row over the years.

But, after a sharp intake of breath, David made his decision. “If I had to choose one – and I do just love the suit – it’s the Henry Poole evening suit,” he said. “They invented it and I have one. It’s midnight blue. This history behind that and to tell people when they ask me about it is quite remarkable. I absolutely love that. That’s probably the one that stands out. I don’t get to wear it very often but when I do it’s very special.”

On Savile Row itself, David revealed: “It’s my favourite street in London. I will mix high street with Savile Row and that’s the beauty of it. You’re buying for longevity. People talk about sustainability these days and some of my suits from Savile Row I’ve had for 15 years and I still wear them. That’s the pinnacle of sustainability. Yes, you may have to have your suits adjusted but this clothing is lasting between 15 to 20 years and they can be passed down (to the next generation) as well.”
