I know what you're thinking. Here's another list of stylish men that are outclassing everyone. The list is ever growing, and it's not making me feel great about myself. But none-the-less, we must continue on our own journey, kind readers.
Mr Porter has brought together to re-introduce us to their newly relaunched Style Council, in association with IWC Schaffhausen. Described as an insider's guide to the best the world has to offer. An easy-to-filter/share guide on where to go, and how to get there.
Not only can we admire their style, we'll be immersed in their city-hopping habits. Do as fashion's best do and go.
Mr Eugene Tong
Stylist and creative consultant
Eugene Tong. What more can I say? This man has been popping up at fashion weeks for year. His style is simple yet effortlessly brilliant, fusing sportswear and high-fashion. The Taipei bred, New York based creative spends 10 days a month travelling, so it's fair to say he has a fair idea on travel.
Mr Gikes is an Englishman in New York chairman and co-founder of Paddle8 (innovative online auctions website) by day and charming auctioneer for charity fundraisers by night. The man spends many of his days between offices in New York, London and Berlin.

David de Rothschild
Founder, The Lost Explorer
Founding The Lost Explorer, a sustainable clothing, luggage and balms brand, this gentleman is a activist and an adventuring. He sailed a boat made from plastic bottles across the pacific to raise awareness of the perils of packaging. When he's not globe trotting, he runs talks in Venice, California.
