What Makes a Celeb Style God These Days?

Authenticity. During the heyday of Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, and Sean Connery, few style gods deviated from the formula of suits, fast cars, and expensive watches. But a new cadre of role models offers a more democratic message: you’re just a step away from great style.

We see ourselves reflected back in Keanu Reeves’s scraggly everyman beard; Jeff Goldblum’s, uh, “Let me try that” dad-prints; the accessible eclecticism of Future and Russell Westbrook; and the you-do-you vibes of the Fab Five. These days, true menswear icons remind us that style is about self-expression, not a uniform. If that’s not worship-worthy, we don’t know what is.
