It’s been a good year for men’s fashion. Timothée Chalamet convinced us that silver suits belong at Cannes. Oscar Isaac made soft sweaters and New Balance sneakers a thing with his viral fitting photos from Scenes From a Marriage. A$AP Rocky proved pearls are a must-buy. Daniel Craig slipped into Savile Row suiting for his final spin as James Bond. Harry Styles wore many, many boas. And let’s not forget all of the iconic fashion moments from celebs such as Lil Nas X, Justin Bieber, Jonah Hill, and Evan Mock, among many others. In my opinion, though, it’s Lewis Hamilton who is most deserving of the title as the best dressed man of 2021.

I first became enamored with Hamilton through my obsession with Formula One—a sport he dominates as a seven-time world champion with an unprecedented 103 race car wins. My F1 infatuation aside, it’s his style that needs to be in full focus. He landed on this list not only because of his ’fits but also because of his involvement in fashion and, frankly, his clear passion for it. This past year alone, Hamilton bought a table to host Black fashion designers at the Met Gala, landed a cover on The Wall Street Journal Magazine for its Innovators issue, modeled for Balenciaga’s S/S 22 collection, and worked with mega-stylist Law Roach. Ahead, let’s dive into Lewis Hamilton’s style from 2021.
