The final flourish of Team GB gold was left to Tinie Tempah and model David Gandy in the Olympic Closing Ceremony last night. Dressed in Burberry Prorsum and Paul Smith respectively, they were flying the flag for Britain's creative industries.
Gold or metallics are a big trend for next Spring 13 but are quite a difficult thing for men to pull off. Gandy wore a tailored suit with matching tie, which was the correct tone of gold; too shiny and it starts to look tacky and too 'entertainer'.
Tempah played his down with dark top and trousers, just having one blinging item, the bomber, with a darker base balances the look and manages to tone it down. The two-tone body and arms makes it less Jimmy Savile and more chic designer.
