2015 was a big year for men’s fashion.
We saw men that knew how to rock black ties, men that weren’t afraid to accessorize, and men that knew how to add some personality to their outfits with bold colours and statement fabrics.
Here we bring you a selection of the best dressed men from around the world and all walks of life. And let’s hope 2016 looks this good…
Mr. Kim Kardashian was constantly making headlines this year with his Yeezy brand launch and hard-to-snag sneaker releases, but also for his killer personal style. In 2015, West fearlessly mixed high-end designers like Givenchy and Lanvin with street-friendly athleisure-wear and created some very versatile looks that were perfect for attending a fashion show, walking a red carpet, and even picking up his daughter from dance lessons.
Subban might be one of the most impressive players to watch in the NHL, but he’s no stranger to the spotlight off the ice either. He’s recognized for his adventurous sense of style and for embracing suits in bolder shades, which isn’t a surprise as he launched his own line of suits with RW & CO. earlier this year. Subban was also awarded as Notable’s Canadian athlete of the year last year.
Mr. Goldblum can definitely attest that his style has gotten better with age. He has retired his prehistoric dinosaur style and can now be seen wearing more youthful pieces, pairing fitted chinos with button up shirts, stylish leather jackets, and statement hats.
In 2015, the Oscar winning actor has proven that he is a force to be reckoned with on screen and on the red carpet. Redmayne stands out with his bold, well-fitted suits and because he’s not afraid to experiment with colour.
On screen, Craig’s characters always look flawlessly put together, in custom suits and and flashy accessories. Off screen, Craig doesn’t shy away from looking sharp either. He typically sticks to a more conservative colour palette, opting for classic black, grey, and navy suits. He’s often seen wearing a perfectly paired pocket square or stylish watch.
Lucky Blue Smith:
You might not recognize his name at first glance, but Lucky Blue Smith is social media’s favourite new model. If his piercing blue eyes and bleach blonde hair doesn’t catch your attention, his impeccable style will. In 2015, Lucky was the face of Tom Ford, Moncler, and Calvin Klein Jeans, while off the runway he still embodies the style of a runway model and often wears vibrant colour patterns and floral suits.
Style is in his last name for a reason. In his downtime, Styles can be seen rocking a more, well, rocker-esque look, but when it comes to red carpet events, he opts for more vibrant and patterned suits. He recently stood out at his final performance with One Direction when he wore a bright red, floral Gucci suit.
John C. Reilly:
Funny guy Reilly caught the world’s attention this year when he showed up at the Cannes film festival wearing a 20s inspired suit. The seersucker suit, straw fedora, brogue shoes, and walking cane looked very Jay Gatsby and set Reilly apart from the rest of the acting world.
Singer Shamir Bailey’s on our list of best-dressed men because his style is truly one of a kind. Shamir caught our attention with his daring colour combinations, retro-patterns, and funky accessories.
The Harlem-based rapper truly is a ‘Fashion Killa’ and caught our attention this year with his monochrome looks that are a mix of edgy street-wear and high fashion pieces. Guys can definitely learn a thing or two from the rapper’s bold fashion statements as he is not afraid to layer or throw on a structured jacket to complete a look.
