David Gandy makes Directorial debut with The Gentleman's Journal and Chester Barrie

18.08.17

We were very excited some months back when we received the call to provide a suit for a new video that was being shot. It was all very hush-hush – but we did glean it was being directed by David Gandy. It was to be his directorial debut, it involved a boat and our friends at Gentlemen’s Journal were organising it….

And here it is. “I am the Smart Commuter”. And very smart it is too. We like the storyline and the video looks great.

In a way, we are not surprised. As David points out, in recent years he has become increasingly involved in the creative side of his work – having a much greater say in art direction and styling – so this was a logical next step.

Enter Gentleman’s Journal along with the luxury boat builder Iguana Yachts. David explains the thinking behind the film: "My idea was the ultimate gentlemen's commute in the morning, and I think many men still want to aspire to that old school feel".

To understand what he means you will have to watch the film. And our part in it? What would you expect the Smart Commuter to wear to work? A Chester Barrie travel suit of course – perfect for any commute.
