GQ BEST DRESSED MEN 2012; IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING...

KHAYA 'BHUBESI' SIBIYA GQ.CO.ZA
KHAYA DLUDLA (GQ.CO.ZA)

I'm not just being biased because I know Khaya "Bhubesi" Sibiya personally, but I have to say that it's been quite a long time coming! Every single year I've expected him to appear in the top 10 of GQ's Best Dressed Men list but only this year did he make it in. Khaya has a very non-conformist dress sense and while it has evolved to become more masculine- in my opinion- he still maintains the hints of androgyny in his style that I have always found interesting and very unique to him. I'm sure many have their opinions on Bhubesi's swag, this is my own and I'm glad that GQ has honoured this deserving guy- at no.2 on the list nogal! Big up! Another Khaya (Dludla) also made it onto the list and he, too, has for some awkward reason been absent from it despite being highly visible on the Johannesburg social scene and he is one of the most well dress corporate people I know. For many who will see Khaya Dludla in this picture in the GQ Magazine conclusions such as 'he's just wearing a suit' may just be made. It is not that simple. Mr Dludla pays plenty attention to detail. He has an enviable shoe collection and I've seen him carrying some of the dopest briefcases ever. At his house I have been a victim of antisocial behaviour thanks to his vast collection of the best men's fashion magazines. This is a man who takes dress as seriously as his very serious job as Associate Director of Financial Accounting and Advisery Services at Ernst & Young. The GQ Best Dressed Man award winners were announced last night in Johannesburg. You can view the complete list of this year's top ten here.
