It’s all really subjective…really. The second annual best dressed men list of Esquire magazine sees Grammy winning musician Pharrell Williams topping the list.
Esquire editors note that Williams is “injecting dressed-up luxury into hip-hop style and thereby influencing a new generation of guys to consider more than just a pair of baggy jeans a reflection of their youthful vitality.”
We don’t disagree, as hip-hop is getting to be more about fashion than Brooklyn and the Bronx. Case in point: last year’s winner was hip-hopper Andre 3000.
Other names on the list include: Jake Gyllenhaal, Kanye West, Jude Law, George Clooney, Matt Lauer, Josh Lucas, Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, Jay-Z, pro quarterback Tom Brady, Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi of Japan, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Southern rock band My Morning Jacket, Luke Wilson, pro running back Curtis Martin, Paul Bettany, former President Clinton, Chris Martin, pro golfer Adam Scott and Donald Trump.
