When we launched our best-dressed real man completition earlier this year, we had little idea the furore it would cause. We travelled the country high and low in search of well-dressed chaps, and the results were better than we could have imagined.
We announce the winner and two finalists in this month's issue - out now - and in celebration we threw a bash earlier this week within the opulent surrounds of Harrods' menswear department.
Guests glugged decadent rum cocktails courtesy of Appleton and beer was abound, thanks to the generous folks at Peroni Nastro Azzuro. Our shortlist of twelve finalists were joined by the great and good of the fashion industry and members of our esteemed judging panel including tailor Richard James, fashion designer Roland Mouret and head of menswear at Harrods Jason Broderick.
Those with stamina took the party onto Mayfair night-spot Whisky Mist, which - as we're sure you can imagine - made for a very lively Esquire HQ come Thursday morning.
The competition may be over, but it's not the last you'll be hearing from Esquire's best-dressed man project. We're more inspired than ever to seek out Britain's best-dressed, so keep an eye out in your town - you could be next.
