‘GQ’ ranks the Style of it’s American Men

Well you already know that Mr. Sexyback was ranked GQ’s most stylish gent of 2009, but today I’m back to tell you more about this historically significant list. 

Falling in line right behind Justin Timberlake is DJ Mark Ronson, who got props for wearing a “slim suit, and skinny tie” without being so pretentious he “makes you you want to punch
him.”  Fine, fine, but do you think he could give his sister some tips?

Flashy-but-not tacky Kanye West made the cut for his gusto, followed by T.I. – because he wears the “bad boy” look that well.  Tailored blazers, denims and a distinctly cocky cocked hat earn the Atlanta-based rapper spot #7. 

And then, of course, there’s Jason Schwartzman, whose awkward, kiddish style inadvertently became style-ish when he threw a pin-striped suit over his emo hair. 

Check out the full list below and don’t be embarrassed if you aren’t sure who a few of these dudes are (I didn’t either…but, shhh!).

1. Justin Timberlake
2. Mark Ronson
3. Alexi Lubomirski
4. Andre Balazs
5. Kanye West
6. Sid Mashburn (and staff)
7. T.I.
8. Glenn O’Brien
9. Jason Schwartzman
10. Ed Ruscha (and son, Eddie)

On a side note, someone should tell the editors of GQ that Mark Ronson isn’t American.  Oopsie…
