which also features Odell Beckham Jr. (the Body Artist), Harry Styles (the Prince of Prints), Russell Westbrook (the Sartorial Daredevil) and Idris Elba (the 007 of Style) – just to name a few:
GQ on Drake: For a certain type of rich guy, luxury means comfort. It means clothes that fit loose, so as not to constrict the swag. Clothes that look appropriate for watching, or even playing, sports. Dressing this way is a power move. It says: I can get in anywhere without so much as a collared shirt, because I am me. Drake plays this look to the hilt. He likes it so much that he started his own line—OVO, full of cotton tees, fleece sweatshirts, and sporty jackets—seemingly just so he’d have more stuff to wear himself.
GQ on Future: Wide-brimmed hats are to the slurring, swerving Atlanta rapper born Nayvadius Wilburn what white suits are to Tom Wolfe: an instantly recognizable daily uniform. Look above and you’ll notice they’re the same basic style. They’ve got the teardrop crown of a traditional fedora, and the brims have an Outback flair. “They were definitely considered an old guy’s hat until Future started wearing them,” says Marc Williamson, proprietor of FlameKeepers Hat Club in Harlem. “Now we get plenty of calls from guys wanting the ‘Future hat.’ ” That’s because context is everything. Future wears his geezer hats like a hipster, turning them into streetwear. “It’s a look that’s enhanced by just a leather jacket or a T-shirt,” Williamson says. “And that’s how Future gets down.”
GQ on Ryan Reynolds: Look once: cool blue suit. Look again: cool plaid blue suit. That subtle detail is the key to Ryan’s style: He always twists the classics just enough to keep them interesting. In this case, classic means dressing in all Burberry—and the twists include a skinny tie printed with paisley, flowers, and…wait, are those coffee beans?
