• Best of 2012: Fashion Bomber of the Year

    Though you guys are typically very lukewarm with our male reader style submissions, Fashion Bombers showed out and represented like no other this year!

    Tailored, sophisticated, and suave, guys from New York to Paris caught your attention. Check out this year’s nominees:

    1. Davidson from New York

    Few Bombers elicited as much excitement as Davidson from New York.

    Clad in tailored suits in a plethora of colors and patterns, Davidson was the definition of dapper.

    To say you were swooning would be an understatement! Out of 1,180 votes, he had a 94% approval rating, with comments like, “A true gentleman of style!!! Love!” and “Lawd Have Mercy!- nothing sexier than a well dressed man-and you have perfected that to a tee–You’ve got my vote!”

    2. Alain from Paris

    Sophisticated Alain caused stylish hearts to palpitate with his punchy pieces and unique ensembles.

    Bright pants and patterns were his thing, along with unexpected pops of color via socks and pocket squares.

    His Bomber status was cemented with 89% out of 966 votes. Martinique_FR gushed, “BRAVO Alain! Your look is very “classy gentleman with edge”… Love it!”

    3. Dualleh from the Hague

    We had a lot of international Bombers, and Dualleh certainly stood out.

    His outfits oozed effortless chic, with ample European influences.

    Though you’re typically a tough crowd, you were all in for Dualleh. Siyam wrote, “Perfection!!!” and Yeyo added, “Funky fresh and dressed to impress! Certified fashion bomber!”

    4. Larry from New Jersey

    Larry represented for Dirty Jerz in a series of refined looks uplifted by moments of cool colors.

    He didn’t say much in terms of a description, but his clothes said it all: he had an eye for style and a singular swagger.

    Ladies loved Larry! Dom wrote, “Handsome and fashionable, a rare combo. His shoe game is sick!”
    while Ashleigh wrote, “Absolutely love it. Call me! Hahaha.”

    The fashion student at the Art Institue of Philadelphia wrote, “ Getting dressed is the most important & my favorite part of the day.”

    The daring self described Maniak Manikin displayed his style prowess by way of bright hooded jackets, pop colors, and socks with sandals.

    6. Tony from Paris

    Paris represented like no other this year! Tony was one of France’s finest features thanks to his simple outfits and designer pieces.
