4. Darion from LA
While most of our Bombers excel in suits, Darion offered a laid back Cali vibe with his logo’d pieces, destroyed jeans, and eye catching footwear.

Though comments were mixed, quite a few of you could appreciate his sartorial artistry. Livvyv said it best, “I think he looks great. He doesn’t have to dress like a guy you would date to be consider a stylish male. I think his style shows versatility and fun.”

  1. This is close. They all have great style. My vote’s for Jason, Dualleh and Gregory. I think in that order

  2. I like all of them but I’m partial to Raymond since I know him! He’s always super stylish and such a nice guy. HU!!!!

  3. MAAAAANNNN!! I came in fully planning to vote for one in particular, but that Jason from New York has stolen the show! His style game is definitely up there with Davidson from last year. I have no other choice but to succumb to greatness…lol. Well done!!

  4. 3-way tie between Jason from NY, Akil from NY, and Raymond from DMV! Absolutely LOVING their style! Yes, Yes, and Yes!

  5. There was a doctor from the DC area I believe whose GF submitted him for fashion bomb recently. He should have made the cut!!!

    Nonetheless all this gentlemen did their thing!!

    Loves it!

  6. i vote Greg! I See him in NYC all of the time. He is always so nicely dressed and polished. His sense of style is very sophicated and I love it!!! Go G!

  7. Jason & Akil…Wow! NY is representin’!

    Great looks for all the other candidates as well…this will be a tough choice!

  8. My vote is for Patrick! Go Oakland!

  9. I’m crossed between Dualleh & Raymond. Both have impeccable styling and it’s just so darn hard to choose!!!!!

  10. Darion had me feeling some kind of way and I’m a grown woman: great posing and great mug.

    And while I could have SWORN Duale won last year, it must be him this year. Like…must.

  11. Greg Greg Greg!!! I love his style very we’ll put together and not overly done. You go boy Fashion Bomber of the century!!

  12. I love Greg Clark’s style he is the future of our fashion world!!!!!

  13. My vote is for Patrick from Oakland…hands down! Cali laid back style but still dressed up at the same time!

  14. “My style is inspired by my West African roots, music, art, and style icons of previous generations.” ~ Sorry Raymond, not seeing it. AT ALL. That’s clearly American prep.

    Anyway, I gave my vote it to Patrick, because his style is classy, trendy, and relaxed. Also, keep doing you Darion from LA. He clearly beats to his own drum and I like that!

    Having said that, all the men are very good looking!

  15. Gregory “ArtOfaStylist” Clark
    I am very impressed with the fashion sense of “Artofastylist” his knowledge, passion and skill shows in his work. He gets out of the box, and he is consistently on point. I have been following fashion for quite sometime, and Artofastylist is definitely one to keep your eye on. HE GETS MY VOTE!!

  16. Gregory has a very sophisticated style yet very rare appearance. Many men don’t have the potential rather so the courage to embrace their own unique style. However, this guy here has a slick style that many can’t keep up with. This guy style comes natural, making the look even more greater. No matter if he’s just going for a stroll, or going to work, his appearance is just always fit to perfection. Mr. Clark is the perfect example of what STYLE is!

  17. I like the two guys from Cali. I think they both were fly I voted for Patrick though because like he said his looks were realistic. A lot of these guys outfits would probably look like costumes in person. His seemed the most authentic. Ijs

  18. Jason killed this. I also really like Dualleh, Raymond, and Darrion. I don’t know how Patrick is in the lead right now.

  19. What about that Ghanaian doctor????? Why didnt ya put him up? How did you guys choose this? How could you not put him up here!? What! Ya did him dirty!
