The men to watch in 2020

 

Every year some men rise to the top of the sartorial charts. Last year, Harry Styles, Jeff Goldblum and surprise surprise David Beckham got us scribbling countless style notes. This year who will it be? We predict big things from these five stars. Meet 2020's best-dressed men and learn just how to dress like them…

Timothée Chalamet


Timothée Chalamet has fast become a style icon. At the budding age of 24, his style is confident, assured and most crucially, it always works. He pushes the sartorial boat out and pulls it off with aplomb. Whether it’s two-piece sets in popping colours (like the cobalt blue shirt and trousers he sported for The King’s Australian premiere) or his takes on tailoring, he combines the unexpected with edgy, traditionally masculine elements. Case in point the satin suit he wore at the Venice Film Festival, made standout with a sash over his jacket but completed with the heavy black boots.

He has the benefits of immaculately undone floppy hair and a skinny build that works for his out-there looks but The King (as his Netflix drama was so called) can inspire all of us men, whatever our look, to try something different. Maybe in 20 years’ time we’ll all be wearing that glitzy Louis Vuitton harness (or embroidered bib as the brand called it). Or maybe not. We’ll see.

Rami Malek 


Bond villain in the upcoming No Time to Die, Rami Malek does red-carpet style frighteningly well. The word that comes to mind is elegant. From his all-black get-up at this year’s Oscars to the cropped jacket and dizzying print shirt at the recent The Gold Meets Golden Event in L.A., he brings rock-and-roll edge to classic looks. A style trick? Choose slim-line cuts.

He’s the face of Saint Laurent’s SS20 campaign where he looks impeccable in punky, statement pieces mixed with rock-and-roll classics like skinny, drainpipe jeans. If you want people to take notice, stick to a relatively simple colour palette of nightly hues, add the occasional statement piece or print, try an air tie (shirt buttoned up as if a tie were in place), and keep fits slim cut. Bond would be threatened, we’re telling you.

Brad Pitt


What a time to be Brad Pitt. With all those award wins, those speeches and the Brad and Jen photos that broke the internet, all eyes are on him. At 56, he is proving to us all that style is ageless.

His fictional sartorial choices in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood got us all reaching for our faded logo t-shirts, Hawaiian shirts, Western boots and aviators. His recent awards season looks have been classic but effortless, smart but not trying too hard.

His style through the decades has been equally as inspiring. From long-line leather coats and subtle double denim combos to the great white t-shirt, he does easy, nonchalant cool like a pro. To copy his lifetime of good looks, embrace texture and tonal colours. You’ll look as good as him, we can (almost) guarantee.

Skepta


With another Nike collaboration soon to drop and his own clothing line, Mains, Skepta is a fast-rising style aficionado. Fashion week regular, he’s got relationships with countless designers and does the high-low way of dressing impeccably well – championing up-and-coming names as well as big brands.

We’re fans of the pillow-y Louis Vuitton puffer coat he wore for this January’s Paris Fashion Week Men’s and the cuddly, statement jumpers he wore in the summer’s fashion show spate. The leather trousers with a white shirt he wore to the Alyx Menswear runway show in January sounds weird but looked the business. All in all, the grime artist dresses with confidence and we applaud him for it.

Keanu Reeves


The internet went crazy for Keanu Reeves as the face of Saint Laurent AW19, and similarly at the Oscars this year with his mum. Over the years he has demonstrated great style. From muddy brown blazers to sharp suits, he sticks to a neutral colour palette and knows the power of black. His style is slouchy but not sloppy. He often wears varieties on one look – which looks, well, impeccably good.

To emulate his style, learn what works for you and stick with it. For Reeves, it’s a blazer, jeans and boots combination. For you, it may be something different. But also remember to have fun. With the fourth Matrix film coming out next year, maybe Reeves will throw full-on leather into the mix soon. You never know.
