Then as sure as night follows day there they were. The golden couple, love's young dream: Elton and David. I am fully for same sex marriages and adoption by same sex couples. All for it and on these notes well done to the two of them but for gods sake how on earth how these two are perceived as best dressed is beyond me. Elton John (or Reg Dwight as his parents know him) has never been "best dressed" he needs at least 2 inches off his sleeve length here and as for that shirt and glasses combo... well don't even get me started. He looks like a futuristic mad professor. All I can say is thank god his hair grew back since the mid 70's!!! (It is your hair right Reggie?)
Moving onto his slightly better half (I say slightly through gritted teeth mind you) David. His trouser length here is just unacceptable. He could make a waistcoat out of the excess there and the edging on the jacket matched with the cravat is very uninspiring to say the least. He has made an effort but its mind numbingly dull and does not get any points from me.
These best dressed lists are no more than who's who and who is mates with the editor. All pals together Its a shame as some of the best dressed men in the world ply their trade on Savile Row and have a subtle sense of how to dress and make an impact at the same time. The majority of this list are trying to plug something or something (Elton's hair maybe?) or are in the limelight at the moment so there face there will sell thousands of copies. Its a shame really but as god is my witness I would never accept being on this list. Oh wait there just got an email from a Mr D Jones at G.Q... erm I guess I had better answer this one!
