Noone is better qualified than GQ to judge men on their sartorial choices.
GQ is full of tastemakers and men who know what it takes to be fly as hell.
So we should really trust their annual list of Best Dressed Men.
Except you can’t.
Because their list is always baffling.
Last year, they named Drake as the best-dressed man in the world. DRAKE. Timberlands-and-check-shirt DRAKE.
And now they’ve just crowned Matt Smith as 2018’s top dog.
A star-studded ‘cutthroat’ panel including Giorgio Armani, Christopher Baily and Michael Kors, are claiming that the former Doctor Who actor is the best-dressed man in the world.
‘In the end, there could only be one winner: huge congratulations to British actor Matt Smith,’ writes GQ Editor-In-Chief, Dylan Jones.
‘A more original winner you’re unlikely to meet. You might not agree with our choice. You might think we picked Mr Smith so we could proclaim “Crowned!” (get it?) on the cover of this January double issue. But then you’d be wrong. After all, were you not listening before? The Editor’s decision is final.’
An odd choice.
But you know what’s even odder? Kit Harrington being named the worst dressed man.
Worse than Jacob Rees-Mogg (#4). Worse than Louis Theroux (#7). Worse than Marshmellow (who?).
Sure, he may be a fan of bad leisure-wear but that’s only to be expected after hours being dressed in heavy winter coats and animal furs, amirite?
Anyway, who else is on the list of best-dressed dudes?
#2 A$AP Rocky
#3 Jeff Goldblum
#4 Harry Styles
#5 Andrew Garfield
#7 Riz Ahmed
#8 Ryan Reynolds
#9 Brooklyn Beckham
#10 Alessandro Michele
And just to remind you of the WORST DRESSED MAN OF 2018, here is what Kit Harrington looks like:
