Pitt, West among ‘most stylish men alive’

GQ magazine has dubbed Brad Pitt and Kanye West as some of the most fashion savvy male celebrities on the planet.

The superstars are among a list a 20 male celebrities handpicked by the editorial staff at the publication for their forthcoming July 2015 issue.

Brad and Kanye are in good company as Ryan Gosling, Pharrell, Jeff Goldblum, Jared Leto, Bradley Cooper, basketball player LeBron James, A$AP Rocky, Jay Z, Harry Styles, Daniel Craig, David Beckham, Mark Ronson, Mario Balotelli and Eddie Redmayne also made the cut.

“We got scientific on this. Hundreds of candidates considered. Thousands of street style photos analysed. We even spent several hours just contemplating Jared Leto's hair,” America’s GQ magazine wrote in a blog entry on the matter, which was published on their website Monday. “Then, after endless rounds of debate, we finalised our list and made it the cover of the July issue.”

Writer Will Welch noted in the blog post editors were looking for a certain type of sartorial flair while selecting candidates.

“This is not about the celebrities who spend the most cash on designer clothes or hire the best stylists,” author Will noted. “Instead, we were looking for guys who carry themselves through the world with confidence and originality. Men who follow their own spirit guides. (Something tells us Kanye's is a peregrine falcon, but don't ask us why.) Men who can teach us a thing or two about how to get dressed—and whose moves we most want to steal.”
