Though much less coveted, men’s fashion is just as diverse in colour and design as women’s. Three men who are leading the way in the fashion world are Jim Chapman, Oliver Cheshire and Douglas Booth. These men have their own styles and represent British style to a T and prove that the British male knows how to dress, just as much as the women in the industry.
27 year old Jim Chapman is best known for his goofy Youtube vlogs in which he has attempted yoga, baking and pranking fellow Youtubers, to name a few. He’s the equally famous other half of Tanya burr, the gorgeous fashion and beauty blogger. However, he is also fast climbing the list of the best dressed men in Britain and has officially gained the title of male style icon. Jim undoubtedly knows how to dress down, he can make even a sweatshirt and skinny jeans look impeccably stylish. He’s often seen wearing Burberry, with their classic wool coats his go-to item. When it comes to events and the red carpet however, Jim is accustomed to the oh-so-british waistcoat and the man knows how to rock a fedora which tops off his geek-chic look perfectly.
Another gloriously styled male fashion icon is Oliver Cheshire. The 27 year old model - whose portfolio includes shoots for Hugo Boss and Versace – has a classically British style, which is no wonder when you take into consideration that he’s the face of major British retailer Marks and Spencer’s ‘Autograph’ clothing line. He’s a regular attendee of the front row at LCM shows, and always looks effortlessly elegant. His style is particularly diverse, ranging from quirky, bright jackets and white suits to the timeless black tuxedo. He’s also a pro at accessorising, regularly showing off his extensive sunglasses collection on Instagram. Oliver is the master of pulling off anything he throws on and naturally he can pull off double denim.
Last but certainly not least, we have 23 year old heartthrob Douglas Booth who manages to steal the show wherever he goes with his cool, effortless style. As well as being an accomplished actor and model, starring in films such as Noah along side Russell Crowe, Douglas is also a humanitarian, taking part in numerous rallies and charitable activities for issues such as the Syrian refugee crisis. Let’s be honest, nothing makes a man more appealing and stylish than just generally being a good person, but Douglas’ eye for style is what has gained him his male style icon role. Literally anything. His blacked out sunglasses regularly seen on his Instagram account oozes unruffled coolness and his naturally messy hair and stubble give him major style points. His style is very à la mode, with his patterned shirts giving a cool modern take on the 70’s vibe. He’s also not one to go for the classic suit look for special events either, and he often opts for a more quirky and unique outfit with pale blue suits and white shirts or a white tuxedo jacket and black trousers.
These three could easily be style icons for every male out there, no matter their style preference. Their diversity and uniqueness is what makes them so stylish and relatable and its an added bonus that they’re all so ridiculously talented.
