Hockney in The Elegant Male
David Hockney has now been added to the The Elegant Male. Some may think him to be less meticulous in his dress than other incumbents; true, but blimey does he have a great sense of style — and it's all his own, which is more than can be said for the plethora of 'men's style' bloggers pompously regurgitating each other's words and delivering sermons on what it means to be well-dressed to an echo chamber of entrenched ideas.
Case in point is the wonderful photo of Hockney with Cecil Beaton above, taken by Hockney's special friend Peter Schlesinger.
Beaton's looking pretty dapper too. I suppose we ought to add him to the roll call, too. The Would-be-Goods would approve.
