I am hopelessly late with this post, nevertheless, it still behooves me to post about it. Especially since it's an issue I post about every year. The GQ best dressed men of the year awards. Since I am very much still developing my style, I surmise it'll take a while for me to crack this list. However I'd love to get an invitation to this prestigious event. I think I decry the same thing every year with this list; and that is, the gentlemen on this list and their style are not prominent enough. I don't have a problem with the individuals themselves, just that I wish GQ did more to showcase their individual style, and whether they really deserve to be on the list. Another important aspect is the judging panel. I feel they, in my humble opinion, are not impartial enough, and that taints their objectivity and whether the gentlemen on the list are really deserving. A way of ensuring impartiality would be to open the voting to the public. Giving them the final say. That would be fair on everyone. Ok, before this turns into a lamentation or a rant, allow me to present you with the list of GQ's best dressed men for 2011. The list runs from tenth to first position.
