When it comes to the world of celebrity, we often have men shoved into our faces, telling us who’s cool and who isn’t. The likes of David Beckham, Harry Styles, and George Clooney are often cited as style gurus. In fact, it’s the same names and they are always a-list stars, always wearing unaffordable clothing, and likely all have stylists.
It can be a frustrating exercise looking for that bit of inspiration for a first date, a night on the tiles, or even an exciting trip to a casino for the first time, where you really do want to look your best, but inspiration can be found in places that you’d probably think were unlikely. And for absolutely no reason. When it comes to celebrities, there are those who are outwardly spoken about “being cool”, with the media then following, and then there are those who just are.
With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of five celebrities that are among the most underrated dresses in the world of celebrity today…
Martin Freeman is one of the most famous actors in Britain, but it’s only a handful of journalists that have really cottoned on to the fact he’s one of the coolest dressers around. The Sherlock star is a self-professed mod and whether on the red carpet, or enjoying a walk around London, he’s always looking seriously sharp.
Among his favourite brands include Albam, Baracuta, and he’s often spotted in Clarks Originals shoes, as well as being a big advocate of the menswear store John Simons on Chiltern Street in London. Just Google him – cool.
Daniel Craig perhaps looks the odd one out on this list of “underrated” dressers. But when we think of his style, it’s almost always the Bond association. We think of Daniel Craig in casinos, wearing suits, and for the fans that wish to replicate him, it will likely be a tuxedo and an online casino, with you having to take a look at slot games to try and best reflect what Bond plays. But while the difference between enjoying casino in a real casino and online aren’t that dissimilar, Craig and Bond are incomparable.
While there are elements of Bond on the red carpet or more formal events, Craig knows how to keep it simple and sophisticated, often wearing a simple jacket and jeans, but getting the colourways, fitting and accessories in all the right places. He’s a big lover of the baker boy hat, and for that we salute.
If there’s one word we can use to describe Ian Wright, it’s dapper. Wrighty often trends for some of his more outlandish fashion choices, but it’s rare you’ll find him looking off on Match of the Day, or any other show he appears on for that matter. He tends to keep it classic with contemporary twists, with the hat very much the Arsenal legends friend.
If you can name a man with a better collection of overshirts then give that man a medal. Masterchef legend John Torode is a master dresser when it comes to his collection of shirts and jackets and we think he’s a fantastically underrated dresser, due to the fact he really does wear nothing out of the ordinary. But he gets it spot on, it suits him, his shape, and more of us should be looking to take inspiration from this guy both in the kitchen and on the catwalk.
Radio presenter and comedian Elis James is another simple but effective man, often opting for a Lacoste polo, a should-be staple of any man’s wardrobe. Erring on the side of the casual movement, if you like a more laid-back look, then Elis is your man.
