Best-dressed lists have a tendency of being predictable affairs.. The same chisel-jawed models and Hollywood actors are proffered up as arbiters of good taste, all because they wore what their personal stylists picked out for them on the way to the latest red carpet.
As much as we love them, this list is a little different. This is our homage to the men who are more than just handsome clothes horses - though handsome many of them indeed are (never hurts, does it?). Men who dress to their own beat. Men who are the picture of elegance, insouciance and – occasionally - courage, all embodying Orson Welles assertion that "style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn."
From designers to artists, entrepreneurs to business leaders, to - yes - one footballer (no, not that one), this is a list of the real best-dressed men in the world right now - and what we can all learn from them.
