It’s a rather tiny rundown for this year’s GQ Men of the Year Awards, we’re afraid. Not because there weren’t enough men to celebrate; heavens, no. God knows we all always find a way to applaud men for doing every little thing. But this being 2020 and all, the usual parade of dudestars and ladystars willing to dress up for an event like this is vastly reduced in number. Still, that doesn’t mean a little judgment isn’t called for. Shall we, then?
John Boyega in Boss
Classic and perfect. There’s something to be said for not futzing around with a basic tux if it looks good on you. And it looks good on everyone.

The new 007 went for fringe and an odd hem length, which absolutely doesn’t work with ankle-strap shoes. Sorry to say, there’s not a thing about this look that appeals to us. It’s an awkward design rendered in a cheap-looking textile paired with some focus-pulling footwear.
This is kind of spectacular, though. For some reason, throwing a pretty standard blazer over this manages to pull it all together. Not super-crazy about the shoes, though.
Paul Mescal in Boss
Mister, you had us until we got to the socks.
Shawn Mendes in Boss
Trying WAY too hard.
