3. Ryan Gosling

Of course Gosling makes the list. 2011 was definitely his year. Whether he was banging Eva Mendes, playing peacemaker in a tank top and baseball cap, or kicking ass in one of the silver screen's most covetable jackets, he looked damn good doing it. Ryan Gosling's style shows us a man who knows himself well enough that he can tell how to wear certain items of clothing or trends. Instead of bowing to cuffed jeans, loafers, and slim suits, he takes those kinds of style choices and does it in his own way — and that's the epitome of great personal style.
