The UK edition of the style magazine said of their No. 1 choice, “Donald Glover is a new-wave renaissance man – and his style is superbly ‘wavey’ too, providing all the Seventies-inspired vibes a modern man needs in his wardrobe right now.” GQ praised Glover most for his colorful tuxedos, additionally nodding to his silk shirts and V-neck knits.
Skepta, Harry Styles, John Legend and Travis Scott also secured themselves spots in the top-ten placing, respectively, at 10, nine, eight and five. The publication says Skepta, “keeps his streetwear interesting by going for neon or big prints up top”; Styles “shows guys that they can play with tailoring, pattern and cut”; Legend has “a penchant for suits just on the right side of jazzy” and Scott is “a poster boy for that high fashion and street-brand remix vibe.”
Other music artists featured on the list include: Post Malone (No. 12), Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander (No. 13), A$AP Rocky (No. 17), Offset (No. 19), Zayn Malik (No. 22), Tyler, the Creator (No. 25), Shawn Mendes (No. 27), Lil Pump (No. 32) and Tinie Tempah (No. 44).
