As we've come to realise over the past few months, you lot like to have your say. And rightly so. No project has inspired more debate, passion, outrage and utter joy in our readers than the best-dressed real man of Britain competition.
We announce the twelve-strong shortlist of finalists in our September issue, on shelves this month, and you've had plenty to say on the matter.
We're running our offshoot Best-dressed Esquire staffer competition this week, so keep your eyes trained on the website to vote for the best-dressed member of the Esquire team.
Laura Wyllie My vote would have to go for Mr Ross Hancock. Loving the colours in his cardigan, manages to mix together an old school look into someone thing new and make it his own. True fashion knowledge and you can see it in the way he wears his clothes. A unique dresser and it must only be a matter of time before he takes off bigtime....you could be the magazine who can say you saw it in him first! Thanks Esquire and keep up the good work!
Charlotte Chamberlin-TaylorMy personal preference has to go to 'PA'.... He has an effortless approach to how he dresses and he looks comfortable, which is a very attractive quality. Most importantly though is that HE is wearing the clothes and not visa versa. I feel all other contenders are all little too styled and perfect. They look as if they've spent hours getting ready!
Tom Loader My vote goes to Ross Hancock... Not sure where that waistcoat/cardi is from, but I want one. Scarf is fantastic also... colourful, classic and dapper!
Jon Hill Ross Hancock is not only the most stylish and best dressed but he manages to do it in a very understated, not-even-trying way - impressive!
AlizéMorand Love Matthew Zorpas' style. Classic yet a hint of edge, a personal touch. And the best accessory ever: this gorgeous smile!
James N Mammy The winner in my eyes is Ross Hancock, he is clearly the best dressed man out of the selected finalists!
Shawana Grosvenor Woah, great selection of styles here, I would have to go for Ross Hancock, he doesn't follow trends like the others have, he has a totally unique look.This man is what London is all about!
Josie Wilson Ross Hancock to win! No contest. The man wears his clothes well. Unlike some whose clothes wear them Ross has an ease and innate style about him.
Richard le FargeRoss Hancock and possibly Peter Masters are the only originally dressed men in this competition. All the rest are just regurgitated versions of someone else.. Go to East London and there are a thousand of the others. Lost Horrors, pointy shoe'd indie romantics and the rest are wearing suits from an olden era..Not original...All might stand out in a pub but only Ross Hancock would anywhere.. He is the only evolution of the English gent. Good work.
Nina Dobson - Ross Hancock to win! By far the most stylish, original dresser and looking so comfortably at ease in his look (which some of the others do not - i.e. Mr. Tight Slacks).
Sean Davies - PA Smith to win - unlike the others he doesnt look like he is trying too hard, and generally has a nice casual look which would appeal to the average guy and not just fashionistas out there. I like the fact that his outfit doesnt look over styled, and isnt a jumble of colours and patterns. I think there is much to be said for understated dressing these days (although admittedly i do love those socks - wish I had a french mother!)
Sam Hesselgrave Just got back from Lindos and met Ross over there - he's the MAN! Effortlessly cool and a complete sweetheart to boot. He must win. FACT!!
Lauren Halman Ross definitely gets my vote to win, I just love his style, he's just second to none.
Navneet Gill Matthew Zorpas should win best dressed, it's tough to pull off a three piece suit without looking like you're going to some distant relatives wedding but he just looks so effortlessly cool, it's really refreshing, and his photograph is easily the best out of those 12!
Lucia Giannecchini Wow what a selection - some VERY strong contenders. But Matthew Zorpas has something just that little bit more...Je Ne Sais Quoi. 'Special' I think is the word. Congrats to all the boys.
Will Nguyen I would like to submit my comment and vote for Matthew Zorpas... I never write into magazines, but I felt compelled to write to a young talent destined for greatness. He's the Who's Who and will be a major force in the fashion world for years to come. Thank you.
Jon Stanley Austin Scrolling through this page, only one man stands out, and that's Ross Hancock. The rest of the bunch are either something I see on a daily basis, or just trying too hard. Ross' style is contemporary yet classic. It's not over the top, but it certainly is eye catching. And most importantly he pulls it off, and rather well. Just looking at the picture makes me want to revamp my wardrobe.
Wanda Ross Hancock is the finest example of individual style personified, he definitely should be crowned best dressed man 2010.
Skevie Rashiti PersianiI just have to express this !!!WOW!!!! All of them look great!!!! By turning over the pages i saw a variety of real good looking and well dressed men. But I must admit that Matthew Zorpas has an amazing look, and a very strong pose. Walking in the streets with a smile in his face, it is like telling us "I got it". Fabulous suit, classy and yet stylish indicting to an other period of time. With all the trendy stuff going on around Britain i see a young strong men going for the top!
Frederica Trombaccia Who could play this role better than Mr Matthew Zorpas? I mean, come on, just look at him and how fabulous he is. And you should see him in real life! I've known him for quite a while now and trust me, he has always had that extra special touch in his style and personality. So cute and spontaneous, yet so classy, stylish and aware of details. No doubt, you deserve it all my friend!
Alessandra Colonna Hello, I was in London today and I got the chance to leaf through and quickly read Esquire. I was attracted by the different photos of the best Britain dressed candidates. I definitely go for Matthew Zorpas. The photo is effectively spontaneous, aesthetically charming and Mr Zorpas has a natural elegance, strengthened by a perfectly shaped suit. As a reader, the Mr Zorpas' picture drove immediately my attention, giving me a sense of an intense aesthetic pleasure. Many compliments to Esquire !!
Jack Guiness Ross Hancock should definitely win- he is the only one of your finalists who looks effortlessly cool. His outfit looks completely unstyled, geniune, and unpretentious- he clearly lives and owns his style. I love the fact his classic brown shoes are worn and lived in. Bloody cool gentleman.
Brittany Taylor I completely disagree with Laura's Jack Murray comment - he could easily be wearing top-to-toe topman and neon hoodies but his ensemble is brilliant. It's about time someone so fresh could nail such a look. A man of any age could aspire to his style and that is the trick!
I agree with the Timmy Cheung that I could walk past alot of them and think nothing of them, but maybe wearing green trousers isn't the way to go about getting noticed? That's probably because I like a classic look but with a twist that is not so obvious.
Nik Thakkar It's all about Matthew Zorpas. The man has an unparalleled style. The photo on the site is fantastic, I've seen him being shot by The Sartorialist and Facehunter equivalents at London Fashion Week and he is without a doubt the most fashion forward, yet classically dressed man. He also has a great knack for mixing designer with high-street.
Laura Jean Sargent Jack Murray isn't doing anything very original, John Brown manages to look effortless but Ross Hancock is most certainly the most original dresser of the bunch. Anyone can put on a three piece suit but only some know how to combine elements of an outfit to create a unique style like Ross does.
Elodie Castag I rarely post comments but I think this time it is deserved. I just bought this issue's Esquire and I have to say that I loved Matthew Zorpas' style! Its a great picture, really natural and spontaneous, which you rarely see on a magazine. It looks like a typical British postcard (the double deck bus and telephone cabin) and it instantly made me smile. Thank you.
Eleanor Cording-Boo Ross Hancock should win because this picture doesn't even nearly do his style justice. I've never met a man with more impeccable taste in my life. He has the best selection of knitwear, shoes, made-to-measure suits and scarves of any chap I've ever seen. His clothes are always colourful, of the finest quality and a perfect fit. The guy doesn't do things by halves - everything I've ever seen him put together is perfectly executed and most importantly, completely original - he never wears any obvious 'trends' and always does something completely unique and unexpected. His personal style is so naturally creative - he can wear anything with ease. Although you have found some finely dressed specimens here, Ross blows everyone else out of the water.
Sarah Jones Clearly Ross Hanock to win!! A lot of the other's look like they are trying way too hard. He looks very comfortable in his clothes.
Fiona Ryn Ross Hancock is hands down the most stylish man around. He deserves the crown!
Oscar Rupert Fiennes - Wow strong contenders! Well done Esquire. My vote for Mr Green Pants / Afro dude.
Nico Wasserman - Easy for me to choose...Michael Munro-Dun! The man has natural style that only years of experience can achieve and shows up a lot of the others for just being young guys still experimenting with clothes, no bad thing obviously. You look at him and you know his socks are going to be co-ordinated with something on his body. And the tie/ hanky are the perfect colour for that blazer and not an obvious choice at all. Perfect tailoring and topped off with a winning 'tache. I liked Peter Masters a lot too but he was let down by the cut and colour of his trousers with those bloody converse.
Timmy Cheung - For me, Prince Cassius should win full stop. There's something about him that the others don't have. While the other contestants have good fashion classics at hand, Prince has that as well, but he's not afraid to add his own touch of style, like you say, colour. If I were walking down the street, I wouldn't have recognised Winston Chesterfield or Matthew Zorpas, cause they stick to the basic no-thrills and something that I feel blends in with a lot of people, but Prince... One look at him and Bam! You know the guy's got style. Perhaps not class because he's still 21, but definitely style. I think that he's got something or rather something missing that the others have: fear. Prince Cassius is not afraid of what he wears. For definite.
