So, with this year drawing to a close, we look back on the men with impeccably turned out style that seems fit for just about any occasion. From casual and refined to polished and sharp, we look to these style icons for fail-proof fashion fixes. Here are our best-dressed men of 2017. Ready, set, take note…
Dressing well is a form of good mannersTOM FORD
DONALD GLOVER – SINGER & ACTOR
This year stylistically, Glover hasn’t gone far wrong. From wallflower to sunflower, Glovers’ style ethic has blatantly transitioned. Utilising brands like Gucci and Tom Ford, the actor has used this year wisely when it comes to unlocking full potential when it comes to styling.
DAVID BECKHAM – FOOTBALLER, ACTOR & MODEL
A style icon from this year to the next, Beckham rocks authentically unbothered and low-key styling like no one else can. Owning subtly distressed denim, basic tees and athleisure footwear, Beckham nailed laid-back and easy-going style this year. However, his formalwear style is where he really shines!
GEORGE CLOONEY – ACTOR
A man that men aspire to be and women aspire to be with, no doubt due to his effortless sense of style. 2017 has seen Clooney only perfect and own his primary look; causal and refined staples take centre stage and Clooney owns it with amiable modesty.
Fashion has to reflect who you are, what you feel at the moment,PHARRELL WILLIAMS
and where you’re going. It doesn’t have to be bright, doesn’t have to be loud.
Just has to be you
WILL SMITH – ACTOR & MUSICIAN
Smith’s street style displays classic, effortlessly understated style that fits into any era. Never too try hard, the actor’s infamous monochrome to minimalist sense of style sits him on our best-dressed list for 2017.
RYAN REYNOLDS – ACTOR
Ryan Reynolds doesn’t step foot out the house without looking like a leading man. The Dead Pool actor owns off-duty, Italian influenced looks with aplomb, whilst inspiring every man to up his game.
BILL NIGHY – ACTOR
When it comes to wearing a suit right, Bill Nighy is the man to look to. Infamous for a navy blue two-piece, Nighy’s signature look boasts structure and confidence, gaining him a place on our almighty best-dressed list.
Style is something assembled over time. As we pass through life we collect the building blocks of our style, from people, from books, from films, from everywhere. Our style is built not just of clothes but of manners and mannerisms.PATRICK GRANT, OWNER OF SAVILE ROW BRANDS E TAUTZ AND NORTON & SONS
