MWS STYLISH MEN OF THE YEAR 2014
THE STANDOUT DAPPER CELEBRITY GUYS OF 2014, ACCORDING TO US
After another fantastic year for menswear and men’s style, we take a look at some of the gentlemen who have stood out in 2014 and have been noticed by the team here at MWS. Here they are in no particular order:
“British model Oliver Cheshire delivered a style masterclass both on and off the red carpet throughout 2014. Whether he's rocking a brocade Dolce & Gabbana suit, Uniqlo chinos with high tops, or his signature turtle neck, Oliver always steps out with a fresh look and a cheeky smile. A special shout out to his perfectly coiffed hair too, this guy never seems to suffer from product overload!” - MWS Jas
He became the face of Belstaff this year and celebrated by heading to the jungle on a motorbike with a few of his best buddies for a television documentary. He was dressed head-to-toe in the fashion label’s gear and he somehow remained immaculate throughout the show. It had no plot or storyline, but we got to see what makes him tick in life.
"Since he burst onto the music scene in 2010, Tinie's style has consistently demonstrated the inextricable link between fashion and music, fusing pieces from his own Disturbing London clothing line with designers such as Casely-Hayford and Burberry. Tinie continues to evolve and inspire the new generation of young men looking for clean, crisp tailoring and grooming." – MWS Andree
Mariano Di Vaio
He’s an Italian model, actor and style blogger, but most people will know him as the king of Instagram. He has 2.7m followers and he simply takes pictures of himself wearing sharp gear. The fact that he has an athletic body and resembles a 1996 Peter Andre, but with a more distinguished jawline and perfect hair, definitely helps!
“His versatile style creates the best menswear statements that speaks volumes. Combining street style effortlessly with his own special twist, it's no wonder he's been an icon this year. I'm excited to see what styles we see from the Made In Chelsea star in 2015.” – MWS Ursula
This dapper British fashion designer has recently made it to mainstream TV on a BBC Two program titled ‘The Great British Sewing Bee’, but we know him for his work with Norton & Sons, E. Tautz and Affligem. He always looks sharp in his tailoring and carries himself elegantly and fluently.
"The guy next door and Häagen-Dazs Ambassador effortlessly knows how to combine classically cool causalwear with a hint of retro chic, to well-tailored straight cut Tom Ford on the red carpet - which shows his evolution with style." - MWS Carine
He’s somehow become super famous yet he’s just a chap in a boy band that didn’t win the British X Factor. In fact, they came third! However, Harry has impressed us this year, he's outgrown his mainstream image to find his own unique style - he is now definitely the most mature and interesting chap of the bunch. He is no stranger to luxury brands such as Burberry and Lanvin, and he wears them very well with his long wavy dishevelled hairstyle.
“The German born American rapper signed to legendary Jay Z's Roc Nation Label, ending the year with a huge win. With no single release, he released his much anticipated album 2014 Forest Hills Drive - which is superb might I add. He's let his little tiny Afro and beard grow, showing us unkempt chic. His street urban style has remained consistant with hoodies, letterman jackets and MA1 bombers.” – MWS Ruth
Did you see the M&S Autograph advert this year!? Good lord it was a bit much, but the 34 year old British model certainly has a pumped and ripped body to be proud of. It’s refreshing to see such a masculine model taking the limelight in 2014. This chap certainly knows how to wear a three piece suit and you’ll probably never spot him in casualwear – he sleeps in a Thom Sweeney bespoke suit, we’re sure of it!
