Ian Fleming
Paul Weller (sometimes, and dodgy barnet aside)
Rod Stewart (obviously not his spandex and cheetah skin phase)
Michael Caine and his old room mate Terrence Stamp
Bowie

I kept the Duke off mine for political reasons.

to throw some unexpected names in here:
bernard henri-levy,
motorcyclist max biaggi (some used to regard him as italy's most eligible batchelor),
usher?
I think a good test is to see if the person's personal style is recognisable in the choices of others i.e. Henri-levy's open charvets and non-traditional sc materials is big in france.

Andre 3000? Ryan Reynolds? Are you people serious? Neil Patrick Harris? Please tell me this is some joke that is yet to be revealed to the rest of us.

Do an image search for Andre Benjamin or Andre 3000. You may not like his style, but he's a stylish man. Ryan Reynolds, makes me a little NPH is 50/50 - but the fact that he made it cool to "suit up" again is worth points. I'd put him above clooney.

Ryan Reynolds, makes me a little

Andre 3000 looks like he is in a costume, not at all what a man should aspire to look like. NPH you have got to be kidding me. How anyone can find these men comparable to such style icons as Agnelli or the Duke of Windsor or Steve McQueen boggles the mind. The fact that you care the opinion of the masses regarding suits is silly.

I want to address this Ryan Reynolds one. I think Ryan Reynolds is very stylish (image search, he's above average most of the time), but I don't think that makes a style icon by any means.

Congrats to him for not looking like shit, but he shouldn't be on the list of "icons".

For someone who I put in the same category as him, see Brad Pitt (except lately, not sure what happened there), Brad Pitt also dresses with style most of the time, but that doesn't make him an icon either because he is not specifically admired for his style and emulated (which I think is an important part of putting someone into the category of "icon".

I now yield the floor to debate.

Before you go agreeing with me too much Gio, I totally support Andre 3000 being on the list. The dude sole-handedly pioneered the preppy look in hip-hop. Being a style icon to other style icons = infinite pimp.

I like the Andre 3000 addition too....he is a pretty stylish, but most people that could never pull off the look are going to hate on him.

My favorites are:

Steve McQueen
JFK
Cary Grant
Connery's Bond
Paul Newman
The Duke of Windsor

I like James Dean too, people who say he just wore jeans and a tee, well yeah for the most part, but he made it cool. If most of the jeans and tee shirt crowd now followed his lead of well fitting and simple combos casual/weekend dressing wouldn't have such a bad rap with the iGent crowd.

Does that make Bieber a style icon? I now see Bieber hair all over the place...
