Being GQ’s fashion editor means that when it comes to style, you know what you are talking about, and Justin Doss definitely knows what works for him!
There is a reason Doss has appeared on multiple best dressed lists around the world and his signature style is a mix of tailored pieces with sportswear, an inspiration that he most probably inherited from his first employment at Ralph Lauren.
Being comfortable in your fashion choices is key to pulling off any look and Doss is certainly comfortable with himself and it shows in the way that he dresses. He knows just how to put together upscale brands with cheaper urban wear and has a style that can be adopted by men for everyday wear.
When it comes to style choices, Doss is not afraid to opt for different colour (usually a selection of blues and monochromes) and understands the importance of textures and patterns. Some of his key pieces include t-shirts which he layers and wears underneath formal shirts, fitted blazers, tweed jacket and trench coats.
Slim fitted and well-tailored trousers are paired with penny loafers and are finished off with panama or fedora hat and his rounded off glasses.
Not only is Ryan Gosling one of Hollywood’s rising stars, his laid back attitude and comfort with his heterosexuality have also led him to become an enviable style icon.
Gosling has a stylish and minimalist wardrobe and has the ability to easily transition between formal wear and casual wear.
Some of his more memorable looks and staple pieces include fitted jeans and chinos, a white t-shirt (usually a V-neck) which he wears with just about everything to create a classic yet edgy look when paired with a slouchy denim jacket or leather biker jacket.
Gosling also knows to wear the hell out of a suit: he can even pull of the 1940s inspired suit paired with a fedora, like the one he wore in the hit film Gangster Squad.
At just 27 years old Peter Gene Hernandez better known by his stage name Bruno Mars, has already made a name for himself, not only for being a talented musician but also for his effortlessly cool style.
Bruno Mars often looks like an old-fashioned gentleman, with his classic pieces including formal suits paired with flannel shirts and quirky t-shirts. These are usually finished off with his signature accessory the folded brimmed fedora, which adds attitude to his wardrobe.
The “Locked Out of Heaven” singer is not afraid to take risks when it comes to his personal style and manages to pull off the denim on denim look, golden suits and bowties and cropped leather jackets in multiple shades ranging from black to green which he often pairs with classic white t-shirts and a pair of slim fitted jeans.
One thing that Bruno Mars style is NOT, is boring and he often adds edge and fun to his outfits by opting to wear his favourite pair of colourful vans shoes, his wayfarer sunglasses or brown framed glasses and a little bling in the form of necklaces and multiple bracelets, proving that accessories on men really do look fashionable.
