Move over Idris Elba; Kanye West is GQ’s Most Stylish Man of the Year 2014



showdowfinalWho do you think has been the most stylish man this year?

According to GQ magazine, Kanye Westis the people’s champion of swag in the year of our lord Yeezus two thousand and fourteen. Since he burst onto the scene in pink polo shirts and Louis Vuitton backpacks over a decade ago, West has shifted the landscape of men’s fashion with his forward-thinking style. 2014 was no different. From bomber jackets to Chelsea boots to over-sized coats, Kanye helped define what this year meant to men in terms of the things they wear, and we think his place as champion in this tournament was earned.’

To win the GQ most stylish showdown 2014, Kanye West beat out British actor Idris Elba and more.

Do you agree with GQ’s assessment of Kanye West’s style evolution?

      Maybe it takes a lot for Kanye to smile because of the wired jaws (due to the accident). Just maybe….

    A lot of people confuse being stylish to being fashionable.

    I will never call a model stylish. David Gandy (most ruggedly handsome man to date) as a model, most likely gets dressed by stylists especially the ones who love Paul Smith and the ones he models for like M&S and D&G.

    Stylish – Lapo Elkann. “He is never under-dressed for any occasion, he doesn’t follow trends or styling rules, he goes against the grain and puts together textures, patterns and colours that basically shouldn’t work, but they do. He clearly doesn’t care about what other people think, he dresses for himself and he’s an individual.” Similar to Kanye West. They are utilitarian dressers and most likely dress themselves in what’s required for that specific occasion.
