Who are the top 5 most stylish nations in the world?
Always ahead of the trend, these are the countries that the rest of the world admires for next season’s collections.
Below are the most stylish nations, highlighting men who know how to dress-to-impress.
5. Japan 🇯🇵
Famous Japanese Designers: Issey Miyake & Kenzo Takada (Kenzo)
Japanese men are known for being well groomed, but they are also very style savvy. The crazed fashions of Tokyo are one of the reasons Japan is one of the most stylish nations in the world. From clashing prints to classic pieces, these men are willing to take risks that most men would be too intimidated to take on.
4. France 🇫🇷
Famous French Designers: Yves Saint Laurent & Christian Dior
It is a known fact that Frenchmen really know how to dress and historically, Dior and many other French brands have seen to it that the French secure their own space in the fashion world. Paris is one of the world’s fashion capitals for menswear and is also home to Coco Chanel.
Famous English Designers: Alexander McQueen & Paul Smith
English tailoring has its own unique style which stems from the military era of World War II. Savile Row is infamous for English bespoke tailoring and one glance at London’s street style, reveals the special place reserved on the global catwalk for British men’s fashion.
2. Nigerian 🇳🇬
Famous Nigerian Designers: Mai Atafo & Okunoren Twins
There is a reason that Nigerian men have such a reputation with the ladies and we have discovered that when you encounter a stylish Nigerian man there are very few forces on earth that can resist their charm. Their traditional dress carries flairs of colour and decadence whilst still remaining masculine and stylish, our hats go off to you Nigeria and the world salutes you.
1. Italy 🇮🇹
Famous Italian Designers: Giorgio Armani & Salvatore Ferragamo
Voted no.1 for menswear and the most stylish nation on the planet is Italy. Passion runs parallel to their food and their fashion. It is rare to find an Italian man who doesn’t care about one or both of these areas. With Milan also known as a fashion hub for textiles and manufacturing, we acknowledge that Italian men are known for dressing, and in many cases, even better than Italian women. They hold the crown for most stylish nation for men.
