This year has brought us a plethora of stylish, distinguished gentlemen!  Our top bombers showed us that well-tailored pants and beards were the wave for 2016.  I feel a sense of pride when it comes to this category because out of the top ten bombers, four of them are from NYC!  Regardless of their locations, there is no doubt that these ten gentlemen were all about fashion.  Let’s dive into the top Bombers of the Day according to likes on the Fashion Bomb Daily account.

Unfortunately Arie changed his Instagram name so we’re unable to locate him. But if you know Arie, please let us know!


2. Jermaine, @King_6ix from New York (3,180 likes, 119 comments)


Jermaine, has an eye for statement pieces.  Whether it be a cropped sweatshirt or an over-sized bag, he managed to incorporate something that catches your eye.

Despite his statement pieces, he avoids looking flashy and over the top.  Great style!


3. Bismark, @Mr_adomako from Toronto (2,725 likes, 99 comments)


Bismark dons the look of a gentleman.  Tailored suits, bow ties and vests are part of his signature look.



Even on his “low key” days, Bismark remains fresh!  He defines his style as a classic gentleman.  I agree!

4. Marlin, @Mdollazign  (formerly LoveJonesDapper) from Atlanta (2,620 likes, 66 comments)


We will just call 2016 the year of the classic man.  Marlin loves his beard and a well-tailored suit!


In his submission he said, “I never wanna come off as too serious… Sneakers and suits all day everyday.”  If you ask me, wearing sneakers with your suits add personality to your ensemble.


He was a favorite for fashion bomb readers.  Dolcepaloma wrote, “Feelin it’. More dudes should dress their age. Clean cut and classy. Yes!”


5. Jean, @ThePlainVillegent from Dallas (2,572 likes, 48 comments)


Jean showed us what a polished man is supposed to look like.  I appreciated his occasional pop of color and use of accessories.


He’s got a thing for bold suits that make him look dapper!



One things for sure, Jean looked SHARP in his pink suit.  Lexofhearts wrote, “The confidence that he exudes is everything! Great color too, btw. ???”

6. Darvell, @Only1Venom from the Bronx (2,396 likes, 73 comments)


Darvell doesn’t look like the stereotypical man from the Bronx.


His versatile style will keep you on your toes.  I am a complete fan of his green tartan pants, white shirt and green tie.


Darvell isn’t afraid of colors, prints or textures.  He is flossin’ in his printed silk shirt, white pants and animal print shoes.


His style resonated with our followers.  Scholarbabe said, “You got the juice boo! Best dressed man I have seen on this page in a longggggggg time!”

Jalen plays NO games when it comes to fashion!  The clean cut look is simply who he is.


A friend of his secretly submitted him as the Bomber of the Day.  She describes his style as eclectic.


Our reader, Poshfeetboutique said, “Yes love seeing a sharp dressed man!”



best-of-2016-fashion-bombers-of-the-year-jalen-48. Mike, @YoungMikeOfficiall from Miami (2,236 likes, 67 comments)


Mike’s style is a mix between the classic gentleman and high-fashion.  He has a knack for incorporating statement piece that will never go out of style.


Our readers thought he was dope as well.  Veleakaj said, “Clean as a whistle??.”

best-of-2016-fashion-bomber-of-the-year-young-mike-officiall-2 I agree!  I love how he styled his royal blue embroidered suit with the Gucci fur loafers.  Fresh!


In his submission, Mike wrote, “My style embodies the modern day gentleman with a hint of Jamaican rudeboy.”

best-of-2016-fashion-bomber-of-the-year-young-mike-officiall-49. Brandon, @WallStreetPaper from Harlem (2,208 likes, 56 comments)


Brandon’s style is impeccable.  His old-time swag has a modern twist that is so bomb!


In his submission, Brandon said, “My style is inspired by life, style, and culture for modern gentlemen.”


He is the epitome of a gentleman.  Confidence down to the socks!


10. Adrian, @a__fashionkingg from Houston (2,131 likes, 20 comments)


Rounding out of most fashionable bombers of 2016 is Adrian from Houston.  His style is fun and trendy.


In Adrian’s submission, he described his style as, “urban but with a twist of class!”


Notice a fashion motif?  It seems like Adrian’s favorite accessory is his bucket hat.  He wears it well!


This guy’s got swag.  Definitely worthy of being part of the top 10 bombers of 2016.



Welp!  There you have it.  We have some stylish contenders for the Bomber of the Year category.  The overwhelming theme for 2016 was the classic man.  Suits, hats and beards!  Who do you think should win?
