    I think that for the amount of shit Kanye gets, he has some pretty interesting outfits. He's out there, but duh, he's supposed to be. I just think he would be better if he was less "brand oriented" and actually developed looks based on, hrrm, well the look of it, instead of whether or not the tag says Raf, BoO, CP, etc.

    If it weren't for the good photography, 90% of these fits would get ripped to shreds in Supertrash. No, I don't think any of these men are particularly stylish, but Kanye comes closest.
    That is always the case with GQ. The photographers are more skilled than the stylists, so lots of otherwise mediocre things wind up looking quite good. Also, I think Mark Ronson would get a pass on SuFu.

    Marc Ronson goes back. He used to have the clubs on lock as a DJ back in the late 90's early 2000 era.
    He also produced the all-Michael Jackson-beats Rhymefest mixtape, which was awesome.

    Glenn O'Brien deserves his spot. He's just pure cool. Justin Timberlake looks horrible.

    +1. O'Brien is one of the few in the fashion advice business that I find enjoyable. Timberlake always looks like a tool. I know this going to sound blasphemous (even I hesitate to type it), but, at least recently, Ryan Seacrest seems fairly well-dressed for a d-bag.

    Cool that Sid Mashburn made the list. I've met the man in person and his store is amazing.

    I had never heard of him before this list, but his store does look like fun. The inclusion of a less well-known person of some interest almost makes up for TI.

    Ed Ruscha :

    he was a fairly prolific pop-artist...


    I thought they dressed these folks up well, It was cool they gave a nod to Rushmore by placing JS in rod lavers.

    Hmm, I've never thought to notice before. Probably because his annoying face is too distracting.

    I don't understand. Most of the people in these photos were done-up by stylists-- presumably, GQ's stylists. So how do these studio shots in any way illustrate how "stylish" these people are?

    I was thinking the same thing, stylists definitely play a part.

    Despite that, I like JT and schwartzman's eccentricity, I think the way they portray themself here does more for them than the clothes they're wearing.

    Ruscha (Sr) dresses well, Kanye dresses like a doofus and poses constantly.

    The two guys on the left in that pic with 4 people look sharp if not unremarkable. TI is kinda laughable although the blazer seems to fit well enough.
