The best dressed men of 2018

As more of us look to celebrities for style advice, the ‘best dressed’ lists continue to grow in popularity. With a loyal readership and a reputation for being one of the most respected men’s magazines, who better to decide the best dressed men of 2018 than GQ Magazine?

From Hollywood superstars to designers who serve as their own best advertisements, below is a selection of the candidates who featured in the publication’s highly coveted annual list –

Virgil Abloh

You may never have heard of him but as Kanye West’s former stylist, Virgil had one of the most important gigs in showbiz. Now the creative director of fashion label Off-White and the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear collection, it’s no surprise that he has featured in GQ’s best dressed men of 2018.

Speaking about the fashion icon, photographic director of GQ, Robin Key commented:

“Virgil Abloh has been instrumental in elevating streetwear to its credible position in the luxury market. His personal style mirrors his label by riffing on graphic prints, head-to-toe black and grungy denim.”

Lewis Hamilton

A regular on the front row at London Fashion Week, it seems as though Lewis Hamilton has picked up a few style tips. Having jumped from 30th place in 2017 to 15th in 2018, GQ believes that Hamilton wears his clothes so well because he believes in standing out from the crowd and has a good eye for accessories.

Dermot may be one of the nation’s favourite television presenters but he’s also becoming known for his impeccable style. Dubbed as the best-dressed man in Britain on a Saturday night by GQ, fashion designers Thom Whiddett and Luke Sweeney also sing the praises of the star’s style:

“With a style that demonstrates the modern male’s ideal wardrobe, Dermot O’Leary is the model ambassador for British tailoring, while also being able to perfect the smart-casual look that we all aim to achieve.”

Brooklyn Beckham

With such fashion-conscious parents, it was only a matter of time before Brooklyn Beckham started to follow in their footsteps. The young star has been recognised for his ability to mix classic and current fashion and it certainly looks as though he’s continuing his dad’s work in the field of menswear for the next generation.

Ryan Reynolds

Good news for all the parents out there, dads can still be cool too. Father of two, Ryan Reynolds has been praised for single-handedly redefining ‘dad’ dressing. GQ’s contributing fashion editor, Nick Carvell says:

“The thing that sets Ryan Reynolds’ style apart from his red-carpet peers is that it just feels real: it doesn’t feel like he’s wearing something that’s been picked out for him by a stylist. These are smart, sleek separates from seriously cool labels, such as Todd Snyder and Officine Générale, all layered up and worn in a way that any man could in his day-to-day life. Plus, he has excellent glasses. Show me a man who doesn’t want to dress like Ryan Reynolds and I’ll show you a liar.”

Matt Smithshutterstock_376809631

Matt Smith has officially been crowned GQ’s best dressed man of 2018. When he isn’t busy playing Prince Philip in the successful series, The Crown, he’s staring in ad campaigns for Burberry alongside Cara Delevingne.

Speaking about the star’s style, Nick Carvell commented:

“He is quite simply, an original – a rare man who can pull off that quintessentially British tailored vibe in a way that not only feels totally genuine, but also totally fresh. He’ll step out in a beautifully cut linen suit in a zingy – but not showy – colour one day, then the next, will arrive at an event in a scoop-neck T-shirt with a rock’n’roll necklace slipped over and a ballsy wool overcoat. In short, Smith wears what the hell he wants and looks superb.”
