Ah, it’s that time of the year again! Last year’s GQ Men of the Year threw us this delightful conundrum, but what about this year? Friends, I’m afraid there’s not much to write home about. Give or take the odd one out, the menswear at Four Seasons on Sunday night was rather underwhelming. Still, I’ve sifted the good, the bad and the ugly – won’t you check them out?

The UGLY

From that tacky fabric to the fat lapels, there’s nothing redeemable about this dinner jacket.

My. Least. Favourite. Look. of the night.

Mr Hooda, we loved your look at the last GQ bash, but this is just unacceptable – soz! Mate, we’re at the GQ Men of the Year – and not some dodgy boat party.

Terrible tailoring, and what a limp excuse of a bow-tie.

Ah, bad suit days happen to cute guys too.

Like Prateik’s, Farhan’s dinner suit too was one size too big.

But neck up, he looked like a Hollywood heartthrob of yore… *swoon*

Whilst the dinner suit is tailored to perfection, that shiny fabric is making eyes blink a little too much to let it pass. This is Rahul bloody Bose, we expect nothing but sartorial perfection, every single time.

Too. Much. Navy.

Desi menswear always scores big with me, so it’s no surprise to find these two hombres in here. But, they were, by no means, flawless: Arjun’s bandhgala is on the wrong side of baggy and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s trousers could go up an inch or half.

What a dandy this Virat Kohli is! Although I’m not on board with those patent leather slippers, that navy slim fit Burberry suit and pop of colour by way of pocket square is enough to get him on top of this pile.
