Some Of The 50 Most Stylish Leading Men

GQ picked the 50 most stylish leading men of the past 50 years. I thought I would post some of them here for your viewing pleasure. I'm going to divide them into separate posts since there's so many of them. I'll then post them over time. So which of these men do you like the best?

Love the old pictures of Clint Eastwood and Sidney Poitier!

p.s. Yep, love and don't love certain aspects of my life now. Figured it's better to figure it out and change sooner rather than later!

These are all great choices. I like how for some of the still-current actors they chose photos from back in the day.

Miss*Kimmy said...

Wow, they all have such great style .. I guess it really is timeless.

That's a darn fine short list...

And the really neat thing...REAL STYLE was found on BOTH sides of the gender fence in the golden days of films.
Classy people...ALL of them.

Good post.

Have a great week.

And stay cool!

Wonderful choice...Mr Niven is my fav

Savvy Gal said...

i like Gregory Peck.

ellie said...

Oh..those were the days. Such style.

I watched the Life Guard other night on TV. Wish I could find some beach pictures of Sam Elliot. Funny to think he's a California native..but he'll always sound like an old cowboy too. And he seems to fit the part now better than ever with that silver hair and mustache. Parker Stevenson was perfectly sweet in his part. Naturally.

Amanda Sablan said...

They all look dashing but I've got to go with Montgomery Clift. ;]

Sam said...

Absolutely everyone of these gentlemen is stylish and smart looking not to mention very handsome! Especially the young Clint Eastwood *swoon*!

i love gery cooper!

Ce qui m'inspire said...

Well I think it's kind of hard to judge all of their style with these photos, because they're all so different, and some of them don't showcase the whole outfit very well! However, my favourite of the photos is the Montgomery Clift one. Something about his pose, he just oozes coolness. And I love the colours in the photo as well!
