And the Winner is....
Note to Brad Pitt:
Congratulations on your big win as the Fashion Noted Best Dressed Male Celebrity poll! Now I know what you are thinking, with Angelina by your side, a few adorable kids, some Oscar nominations, and pretty much being the winner of a genetic lottery with your painfully good looks, you thought that life couldn't get better. Until now. You beat out some formidable foes, your pal George Clooney, David Beckham, the eccentric Johnny Depp, and Justin Timberlake. I don't have an actual trophy for you, but you can print out this post and frame it somewhere in one of your homes. Or if you want to contact me, I could probably be persuaded to send you some kind of a certificate, and maybe I'd personally deliver it. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep up the fashionable ensembles, this title comes with the responsibility to continue dressing well.
Note to Readers:
If there is one thing we can learn from Brad Pitt, it is that the fit of your clothes makes all the difference. What is the point of having the body of a Greek God if you hide it underneath baggy clothing? Now we may not all be blessed with rock hard abs, but you will be surprised what a difference having properly fitting clothing will do for you. The key is not to go too tight or too loose, you need to find that perfect medium. For example, just because you can button up a shirt that is a size 6, does not necessarily mean it is the right size. Make sure your the fabric isn't puckering anywhere or pulling at the closures. Also make sure your figure isn't getting lost in a sea of fabric, that will only make you look shapeless. Try on different sizes and ask opinions to see what fit is best for you.
In honor of our winner, here are a few pictures of Brad Pitt's style.
Brad dressed up in a classic gray suit with a skinny tie, and in his functional yet fashionable biker gear. Usually I am not a fan of men in leather, but when you are Brad Pitt, you can break a few rules.
In a casual, monochromatic look. The hat makes the look more interesting, and takes it from a regular jeans and t-shirt outfit. A perfect example of picking just the right accessory, without looking like you are trying too hard.
Thanks everyone for voting, and I hope you are pleased with the results!
