Boris Johnson’s right-hand man has topped a list of the world’s worst-dressed men.

Dominic Cummings, the Prime Minister’s top political adviser, is well-known for sporting a blue and navy quilted gilet.

Cummings’s love of sports hoodies, jeans and fleece vests was also noted by GQ, which compiled the list.

He is credited with masterminding the successful Vote Leave campaign in the 2016 referendum.

The magazine has named the 10 men who stood out for all the wrong reasons in the sartorial landscape of 2019.

Cummings, 48, beat Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg and Chinese President Xi Jinping, who took second and third place respectively.
