The latest edition (May 2009) of GQ has arrived on my doormat and aside from reading my monthly column (p. 53) or seeking more photos of cover star January Jones (p.152), I should also commend to you the "50 Best-Dressed Men in Britain" supplement.
It features a variety of our leading politicians and the party divide is pretty stark.
David Cameron is named the eighth best-dressed man in Britain, with George Osborne a new entry at 42 and Boris Johnson also entering the list at 46. Says Nicholas Coleridge, the Condé Nast Managing Director, of London's Mayor:
UKIP leader Nigel Farage somehow enters the chart at 49, but it is the list of the 20 worst-dressed men in Britain where the Government's leading lights hit the radar. No less than five of the Cabinet feature in that chart, namely Gordon Brown (3), Alistair Darling (7), Jacqui Smith (13 - don't ask), David Miliband (14) and Lord Mandelson (18).
The Business Secretary merits particular criticism from design historian, Stephen Bayley, who advises that "only Italians can wear V-neck woollies with suits".
Do ConHome readers agree with GQ's findings? Are there any particularly snappily-dressed politicians who you think also deserve recognition?
