17 iconic menswear influencers of varying styles and ages also attended the event, wearing their favourite M&S suits. They listened to the talk while seated on personalised bar stools, showcasing their sartorial choices.
David Gandy Global Style Icon and M&S’ first ever tailoring ambassador said, “I am honored and excited to be named as the first ever M&S Ambassador of Tailoring. Ironically my first ever suit was one of my Dad’s M&S pure wool suits that I had altered to fit me, ever since then I have had an interest and love of British tailoring.
I have been part of the M&S family for over six years now, both as a face and as a designer for my own collection, which have proved to be very successful. My role has now evolved and expanded to working behind the scenes with the creative teams on the new suit style section of the website, and on the art direction and styling of the new tailoring campaign. I am delighted so far with the results and I’ve enjoyed watching the ideas and concepts come to life, and hope the new tailoring styles in the imagery and videos inspire M&S customers”
M&S CEO, Steve Rowe said,
“I’ve really enjoyed being part of the M&S Tailoring Talk tonight, marking the launch of our biggest ever suit collection which we’ve designed and developed through in depth customer feedback. It was great to debate the significance of the suit past, present and future with our new Ambassador of Tailoring, David Gandy, and others from the wider M&S network.”
A brand new suit style section on the M & S website has launched online, housing editorial content and video, as well as tips on how customers can wear suits for different occasions from the different ranges within M&S.
