these lists are a joke its like peoples 50 most beautiful people its more about celebrity than actual ability to dress well. this is also why everybody wants to wear black suits everyday. when you are at an awards show wear the black tux not when you are shopping at the gap

#35 is ridiculous look at the bottom button of the shirt and #26 is 10 years old

That list was depressing. Even the mediocre dressers on WAYWRN are miles ahead.

Right on. And nobody on this list even dresses themselves. The guys on the WAYWRN actually pick and pay for the clothes themselves (for the most part).

^ That one did raise an eyebrow. He's a real-life Ken doll for his mother to dress.

Graff, Finch, Nighy, Winstone and Grant and some others were very worthy inclusions though.

Who is Plan B, by the way? I'm feeling lazy to google. I'd guess rapper with that name, but he doesn't really look the part, so I assume he must do something else...?

Ah, c'mon, Elton John? Sheesh. This list reads like the US ones: celebs, sports stars and miscellaneous VIPs who are just dressed up for the red carpet.

Of course, a few look great. And my fave is Mr. Ferry and not just because he wears SF-approved classic suits and soporific ties (or is very talented), but because he's got swagger. And I believe he always dresses well. He's not just wearing a suit for a press conference.



There were a few others. The two dudes on the couch. Nice monochrome suits, but a little too stiff. Also the guy from Frankie and the Furnaces. Cool casual style. And Jarvis Cocker, he's always natty.

Also I did not know Tom Ford was now British.
