GQ Top Ten Stylish Men in America!

"We tapped into the worlds of music, art, film and beyond to assemble a collection of guys we can all take our cues from. No royals, no socialites, no pretty-boy actors—just real men with real style"

Justin T.

"The man who helped bring fedoras—and sweater vests, and beards, and three-piece suits, and skinny ties—back."

Mark Ronson

"Ronson wears the of-the-moment uniform—slim suit, skinny tie—in such a way that doesn’t make you want to punch him. How? He respects details like the taper of the pants and the length of the tie—and he backs the Mr. Success look up with actual success."


"The Atlanta-based rapper rejects hip-hop’s merry-go-round of trends in favor of tailored blazers, jeans of distinctly hip-hopian proportions, and one trademark: a hat cocked at an extreme angle. Only problem now? He’s due for prison time. But look for him to pick up where he left off—fashionwise, anyway—the day he gets out."

Ed Ruscha (and son)

"For twenty-five years, all I bought was used clothing. The only extravagance was that I had a couple of sequined cowboy shirts made. I don’t like all-black and I don’t wear suits and ties that often. When I do wear a tie, it’s usually a bolo tie. I have a collection of ’em—I like those little strings that dangle.”

André Balazs

"If you’ve ever set foot on an André Balazs property—the legendary Chateau Marmont, say—you know his philosophy: Style isn’t about exclusivity or trends; it’s about honesty, authenticity, and above all else, comfort."

Glenn O'Brien

"Find us an icon of New York’s punk/new-wave scene who looks as bold today as he did in 1978. Fact is, most are dead, washed-up, or worse—banking. The secret to Glenn O’Brien’s style longevity: He hasn’t strayed from his roots."

Kanye West

"Stylistically, Kanye no longer seems like a sugar-deprived kid in a candy store. Yes, he’s still flashy and attitudinal. Whereas he used to look like he was flaunting all those luxury labels, now he looks like he’s expressing himself through them."

Sid Mashburn

“My look is kind of an amalgam of different things: European, preppy, southern. Preppy is oftentimes pejorative, but if you really boil it down, it’s nothing more than classic clothes—a pair of khaki pants, a Shetland sweater.”

Alex Lubomirski

"Lubomirski is a photographer you could easily mistake for a model—one cast in a fashion spread called “How to Achieve Timeless Elegance in a Blue Shirt and Jeans.” Born in England and raised in France and Botswana, he’s worldly enough to pull off undoing that third shirt button."

Jason Schuwartzmann (3rd from left)

"Even when he was an awkward kid playing an even more awkward kid in Rushmore, you could tell Jason Schwartzman had style. Behold, a decade or so later he’s an ace at looking cool in a suit."

What I love most about this selection is the diversity. Being PLuSH, fashionable, stylish and elegant is being unique and confident. Let your personality shine through your style. Plush LOVES GQ men with style!
