Man, he's stylish!

So, I decided to pay tribute some of the best dressed guys, because hey, why should girls steal all the fun. Afterall, it was the men who originally championed braces, skinny jeans, ties.....uh, boyfriend jeans, obviously, and lots more. But lets not get into that now!

So to get the ball rolling, lets start with Alex Kapranos, lead singer of Franz Ferdinand. This is in no particular order, by the way.

See what I mean about ties! There were lots of pretty cool pictures to choose from, but lets face it, the retro "grandad" shades were the piesta resistance of the photo.

Ok, so you might have noticed a pattern emerging already...Its a pretty small picture, but i really liked it. Its Jarvis Cocker of course, and for me, anyone who wears thick rimmed glasses like that deserve to be in this list! belive me, I spent ages trying to find a picture of Marc Jacobs looking this good, but his glasses were the only eyecatching thing[s]. I really like the mixture of dark autumn shades in this outfit. Makes me think of victoria plums! yuum.

Well, i wasn't going to miss him out of the list was i? Who else is there in the world of hip hop who wears braces, spats and straw hats and manages not to get their head kicked in? Not Fiddy Cent, thats for sure. Kelis was in this picture too, so I guess that counts her leg as being stylish? Well shes one hot mama anyway.

Oh adam adam adam. Single handedly responsable for the geek revival. Okay, well, hes not "single handedly responsable" because Seth Cohen helped that too. But still, he should probably have trademarked striped sweaters, because H and M have made so much money out of their cohen-esque clothes.

Okay, so what I was saying about Andre 3000 earlier...I think i need to do a bit of backtracking, because check out Kanyeee! I saw him play in February and wow, I don't think I've ever seen so many hot outfit changes on a guy! There was the old skool blazer [which he's also wearing above], the snakeskin puffa jacket, crispy white shirts and a whole lot of bling and marc j sunglasses.

I thought I should include Mick Jagger as he's worn some pretty cool stuff in his time, and besides, hes kind of head of one of the worlds most fashionable families. [Surely I don't need to justify this fact? Jade Jagger....Lizzy Jagger.... fasionista spouses like Jerry and Bianca...] And anyway. How cool is his sparkly tux!?

and last but not least, Viktor and Rolf!
Moustaches, Glasses and fine tailored suits, not to mention a double dosage of euro-charm.
