Britain's Best Dressed Real Man

Dan Wood, a 22 year old architecture student from Liverpool, has been crowned as the UK's most stylish man by none other than Esquire. The magazine ran a competition to find the best dressed men in Britain. After narrowing the entries down to twelve hopefuls, the decision was passed on to a panel that included Sir Paul Smith, Douglas Booth and Esquire editor Alex Bilmes.

Wood was chosen as the winner for his ''flair, inventiveness and ability to play around with the rules of menswear.''

But a student in a two piece suit representing real men? Dan explains, "I enjoy a modern, slimmer cut. But I'm not massively swayed by fashion. I go for classic things that in 10, 20, 30 years will hopefully look good."
