Over the last few years I have noticed that menswear fashion has come to the forefront and is now regarded as being somewhat on a level with womenswear, in terms of importance and the press coverage it now recieves. I love how men are taking note of fashion (and I'm talking in generalities here), and I love the influx of stylish men being snapped on streetstyle blogs outside of shows and on the streets on New York, Paris, Milan and London. Grazia actually did a great double-page feature in their February '11 issue on men in fashion titled, yup it's a doozy, 'Hot Fashion Men Alert', and Tommy Ton's street snaps for GQ.com is now on my list of must-visit-for-sartorial-inspiration websites.
A few of the more prominent stylish men have always been around - Jefferson Hack (co-founder of Dazed & Confused, Another Magazine and Kate Moss's baby daddy), Tom Ford (shouldn't need to explain this one!) and George Cortina (stylist and worked for Vogue Nippon, L'uomo Vogue and Harper's Bazaar), are a few examples but recently my obsession with men in fashion hit an alltime high when I came across these images of Yves Saint Laurent's chief designer Stefano Pilati.
