Can we do without? Certainly. Can you be happy without being stylish? Absolutely. Is there anything more important in a man’s life? Certainly. However, your dress style says a lot: it is your facade and your first interaction with the world and with others. It is, in this, much more important than you think!
We decided to choose a few very stylish men to illustrate these comments on style. We chose the eternal David Beckham to put in pictures a rather chic dressed style. Virgil Abloh for a more street style of clothing and finally ZacEfron to highlight a more casual trend with workwear influences.
David Beckham, Style Icon And Chic For Any Occasion
If he marked an entire generation with his hair innovations during the heyday of world football, David Beckham is also (and above all?) Known and recognized for his mastery of classic elegance. For him, dressing well consists of wearing suits, jackets and dress pants superbly cut in exceptional materials.
This style is eminently masculine, utterly timeless and absolutely timeless. Victoria’s husband pays close attention to detail and it’s rare to find an outfit that is as simple as it might first appear.
Tuxedo, three-piece tailcoat suit with double-breasted waistcoat, suit with pointed lapels associated with double-buckles: David Beckham absolutely masters the entire repertoire of masculine elegance and wears pieces cut to the millimeter. Very great art.
Even in a casual chic style, relaxation barely exists as the elegance is so pervasive. We will always see the newsboy cap more than the boots, the double-breasted jacket with two buttons than the sneakers or the suit cut than the T-shirt at Mr. Beckham.
The same goes for apparently minimalist outfits: the materials, the accessories, the purity of the cuts exude mastery on any occasion.
The Street-Cred Way Virgil Abloh
Between luxury and streewear, the influences of the founder of the Off-White brand and current DA at Louis Vuitton are numerous.
For him, the style combines urban culture and classic tailoring, at the crossroads of two universes that everything seems to oppose. The result is unique looks based on a mix of pure simplicity and very particular strong pieces.
Well-crafted tees or very specific materials. Wide enough pants for a little street outfit. An omnipresent play on volumes, in short: a designer with a necessarily original style.
Rather wise streetwear outfits, enhanced by luxury accessories.
Lots of compositions around volumes: XL hoods, loose pants, accordion cuffs … but also a lot of sneakers because they remain the most ostentatious representative of an assertive street style.
ZacEfronAnd His Casual-Chic Style With Workwear Influences
For ZacEfron, a stylish man is an elegant man who knows how to go back to the good old basics of American men’s fashion . It goes through very robust jackets and pumps.
Leather aviator jacket, woolen collar work jacket, raw jeans, chunky ankle boots … or the manly elegance made in the USA according to ZacEfron.
There are also some essentials of any good American wardrobe: the teddy and the Converse being two proud flag bearers.
A little bomber and chinos and we went around: all the US locker room in the register is there.
