Hip-hop has its fashion stalwarts—we don’t need to name drop, you know who they are. Then there are dudes lauded by lifestyle mags and street style bloggers for their immaculate sartorial tastes. And yes, there’s a distinctive difference between the two: while one gets all the praise (think Ye making headlines when he rocked Céline), the other lays under the radar, always instinctively well put together, even when only wearing basic denim and a simple pullover.
Sometimes the latter is fashionably ostentatious, most times their not. But regardless, it’s more than likely them – and only them – picking out their day-to-day garbs. Besides, being stylistically on point doesn’t need to be a full-time pursuit if it’s intrinsic. This list is more than 10, but some of the honorees we’re noting travel in packs. Here, we salute the men holding down the fort for their timeless style choices.
