David Gandy is quite simply the definition of a gentleman. He has been labeled as one of the most handsome men in the world, but it his style and love of tailoring that has marked him as true gentleman.
Gandy has dominated the fashion world and has become one of the most successful models in the world, but his street style is just as impressive as campaigns for Dolce and Gabbana and Massimo Dutti. With his wardrobe exuding classic style and the three-piece suit as his staple look.
Gandy is celebrated for his refined and masculine yet stylish looks, with some of his signature pieces including double-breasted blazers, long tailored coats, navy-blue chinos, fitted jumpers tucked into trousers, silk scarves and his slightly edgier piece: a fitted leather jacket.
Gandy is a style icon to men worldwide and fashion is important to him, which is evident in the way that he presents himself.
Russell Brand is one of the funniest men around and he also has an odd charm. However, what we really love about him is his truly original style, a mix of Victorian and Indie style and he is in a way anti-fashion.
When it comes to fashion, Brand is willing to take a chance and embrace the metro-sexual look, the guyliner and mix and match some very interesting combinations.
He explains his style as: “My look is a collision between bondage, ’70s rock n’ roll and a gentleman at the Henley Regatta.”
Brand loves to show off his super skinny legs with black skinny jeans and while many men are apprehensive of the skinny jean look, Brand knows just how to pull it off and look like an Indie Rock god doing so.
While many men shy away from the uber deep V-neck t-shirts , Brand loves to show off his chest and display his large collection of crucifixes and wooden prayer beads. Brand is not afraid of a little colour and welcomes button-downed floral dress shirts, with other favourites being waistcoats and he has the confidence to make them look great—some of his most notable pieces include tweed, woolen and satiny black waistcoats.
He expertly combines formal and informal with waistcoats, his signature black blazer, flouncy scarves and skinny jeans and trainers or his western influence—cowboy boots! And we love him for it.
Mboko Ndimba Mobutu understands fashion better than most men and for a good reason, he has worked as a fashion editor and stylist for GHUBAR’s team and his own clothing style is individual and distinctive. Mobutu describes his looks as: “playful, refined and gentleman-like”
Influenced by the Parisian lifestyle, his style is classic and elegant with a modern twist and his pieces are superbly tailored—Parisian tailoring is typically slim on the bottom and boxy, and defined on the top half.
Some of his staple pieces include tailored and fitted trousers, black blazers, double breasted suits, silk shirts and paisley patterned shirts. Mobutu makes brave style choices and is willing to embrace everything from tweeds to cashmeres and even high quality wools but the best part about his looks is his ability to intelligently balance his colour choices.
And his shoe collection is enviable: from penny loafers, brogues and the gentleman’s choice of oxford lace shoes. Mobutu manages to pull off the shoes without socks look and when he does wear socks they are bright and add a delightful pop of colour to his outfits.
Accessories include clear frames, bracelets and wide brim stetson hats…what is not to feel inspired by?
