2017 we’re feeling a different vibe emerge in pro-level style. We speak of men who look just as sharp on the street as our most treasured favorites do on the red carpet.
That’s why for our first Stylish Guys pick we focus on models. Sure, male models may look great in clothes, but how many of them can really put together an off-duty outfit? And how many realize that, in the camera-phone age, every little walk to the corner can turn into a photo op.
Personal style has emerged as a powerful selling point for male models, and showing up in the right place wearing the right look can lead to attention, endorsements, and even It-Guy status. Stylish Guy Samuel Serafin first caught our attention with his out-going personality backstage at the Ports 1961 fashion show for Fall 2017 menswear.
But when the icy-blond walked into The Fashion Plate office last week for a model casting in a 90s slicker and flared denim channeling Jim Morrison we immediately hailed the boy-wonder as our first first pick for Stylish Guys of the week.
