Samuel L. Jackson: British men exude cool

Samuel L. Jackson thinks the way men dress in London is “legendary”.

The 66-year-old Pulp Fiction actor hosted a charity party in London last Friday called One for the Boys, a men’s cancer awareness ball and fashion show.

His One for the Boys event coincided with the start of London Collections Men SS16, a special occasion in the city meant to highlight emerging British talent in menswear.

And Samuel is deeply impressed by the style choices of guys living in the UK.

“It’s so cool that men here are just so confident and self-assured about the way they dress – they have an incomparable style about them but it's the attitude and confidence that accompanies their incredible way of dressing that makes British men well legendary in the style stakes,” he told Fashionista.

Several big names in the fashion and celebrity world attended Samuel’s party, including Mark Ronson, Sia, GQ UK editor Dylan Jones, Stanley Tucci, Alice Cooper, Haley Joel Osment, Luke Wilson, Aidan Quinn and Richard Roundtree.

Several of these high-profile celebs graced the catwalk in clothing designed by Tom Ford, Gucci, Hackett and Burberry among others during the event.

And Samuel is hoping he is able to pull even more large names in the future to strut their stuff for cancer awareness.

“We are trying to go really big with this message about early diagnosis and warning signs,” he noted. “Our next aim is to have Prince Harry join the charity – why not? We’ll see about that, but nothing like living large when it comes to trying to beat cancer.”
