Earlier today, GQ unveiled its list of "The 13 Most Stylish Men in the World Right Now." The lineup consisted of the usual suspects, like Russell Westbrook, Harry Styles, and Idris Elba. But, there were two rather unexpected additions. Drake and Future both made the list, beating out other well-dressed dudes in the music scene, like Kanye West and Justin Bieber.
Drake's inclusion on the list comes a year after The Guardian boldly stated that the 6 God had surpassed even Pharrell as a style icon. Even though Drake has come a long way with his style, we disagreed with its assessment of his new status, which the publication attributed to things like his remix of Migo's "Versace" and dressing appropriately at Wimbeldon. But, it looks like others are more convinced. Like The Guardian, GQ praises Drake for his low-key aesthetic, which has been supplemented by the release of his own OVO clothing line.
As for Future, GQ thinks the rapper's headwear is enough to land him a spot in the top 13. According to the site, Future is responsible for starting a trend that has hipsters wearing oversized Grandpa hats. “They were definitely considered an old guy's hat until Future started wearing them,” said Marc Williamson the owner of FlameKeepers Hat Club in Harlem, told GQ. “Now we get plenty of calls from guys wanting the ‘Future hat.’"
Drake and Future will also grace a cover of the "Most Stylish Men Alive," issue, which has previously been fronted by West. The rest of the list includes a range of models, musicians, athletes, and actors, including Lucky Blue Smith, Eddy Redmayne, Odell Beckham Jr., Diplo, Ryan Reynolds, Justin Trudeau, Aziz Ansari, and Tom Hardy.
