With David Gandy being one of the few currently placed at the top of the style scale, it comes as no surprise that the Essex born superstar model was the perfect choice for the new AW12 lookbook from Thom Sweeney. The Mayfair based bespoke tailors has the young and hugely talented Thom Widdett and Luke Sweeney at the helm. With a focus on fusing traditional British techniques with modern design ‘flair’, the label has acquired a large and faithful following over the past few years.
The shots featuring Gandy showcase styles and pieces suitable for the current season. Along with the beautifully crafted suits, printed knitted ties have been included to provide a modern option for those looking to add something different to a classic formal look. Working within the timeless ethos set out by the tailors, camel cashmere coats make an appearance, cementing their place once again as the perfect winter coat for stylish city dwellers.
Experimentation with necklines and detailing is successfully achieved when coupled with the precision of the adopted cutting and sewing techniques, whilst the use of quality fabrics and perfection in fit merely adds to the refined nature of the duo’s work.
By fusing the best of British tradition with modern design, Thom Sweeney will only continue to grow in popularity.
