After a hatless morning, this blog's favourite favourite subject - David Gandy, of course - suddenly slipped on a fedora for the Lou Dalton show. Indoor hat-wearing? What's all that about? Plus we hear from our Fulham spy that Gandy wears a flatcap inside his local pub too. At the Topman Design show (where that hat was still firmly on) we asked if the pub tip was on the money. "Absolutely," he said: "and I've got a cap for tonight. It's because I've got outrageously uncontrollable hair and now that people recognise me when I go out, if I can't be bothered to do it [tame his hair] it's cap on or hat on, a big chunky knit, and I'm good to go." So there you are. Luke Leitch, deputy fashion editor.
