20 Most Stylish People in Dubai. Really?

Normally I don't do that.

But I was just curious as what other people think, so here it goes:

Couple of weeks back local edition of Time Out published a list of "20 Most Stylish People in Dubai".

Frankly, I'm befuddled by their choices, particularly in Male Category,  but then again, who am I to judge, right?
Perhaps I'm not on the same page as what Dubai's army of delusional editors deems "Most Stylish".

So, dear readers, you be the judges instead:








It looks like Most Stylish Men in Dubai either regularly overcome with desire to wear bow-ties with shorts or they just throw on whatever they find under the bed, peg their pants and call it a day.

There's one entrant, however, that i really find truly well dressed.  No Lady Gaga-esque sunglasses, no pegged bloomers and no button-ups a la Jessy James from Monster Garage:



Right?!  I even like his choice of bumble-bee socks - makes you go "Hmm, I haven't had a Honey Cake from Spinney's in awhile..."

я тоже удивлена их выбором. мне вообще в голову пришел вопрос - а как на них там смотрят в Дубае - в шортах и с бабочкой?

Полосатые носочки в сочетании с серым костюмом выглядят убийственно!:)

Hahaha that first guy needs to roll those shorts down a bit, there's waaaay too much man fuzz on display! :S

I think being 'stylish' is a dangerous cycle, it loops round from looking meh alright - looking good - looking great - looking really great - looking like a plonka... it's difficult!

HAHA IR!!! I'm befuddled as well!!! I definitely wouldn't SWOON over any of these, except the last one! HAHAHA :D

@ a good girl - frankly, I probably go to the wrong places in Dubai - I haven't had the privilege to encounter anyone here wearing pegged shorts with bow-ties.

@ Danielle - I know, right? It's like "Dudes, stop watching Gossip Girl re-runs! Nobody dresses like that in real life". But, perhaps they should dress like that...
I dunno. It's super diffucult, i guess, when you are a man. What would Tom Ford say, I wonder?

@ Sassy - :)

Haha great post, really made me smile! What were some of them thinking?! x

A good girl said...

почитала я тот блог. конечно я в ах...е это надо быть такой недоходчивой чтобы сразу не свалить. у меня аж мурашки по коже.блог я дочитывать не стану. мне кажется это тролль какой то. неужели есть еще такие истории?

i.r. said...

Не думаю что троль... Просто женщина is looking for love in all the wrong places. Привычка жениться, грубо говоря.
Очень надеюсь что она и ее ребенок обретут покой и счастье...

A good girl said...

самое печальное, что я о таких историях начитана и наслышана. была у меня подруг ав похожей ситуации из шаржи. наверное теперь она растит сына на россии. я как раз с ней общалась когда она план побега строила. потом она перестала отвечать мне.

Interesting approaches to style! Or maybe I am being unfair and just need to expand my definition of what a stylish man should look like?

Rochelle's Closet said...

hahaha great blog! I love the bumble bee socks!

If you want to see opera there is going to be a performance of La Traviata in DUCTAC, MoE on Friday 18 November. Details in TimeOut http://www.timeoutdubai.com/aroundtown/events/13036

sparklydatepalm said...

Yes, hoping to get to La Traviata - it should be in Centrepoint, the larger theatre. And thank you for introducing me to cakewrecks - haven't laughed so much in ages.

RA said...

amazing! ;D

xoussef said...

Wow! are you sure they weren't sarcastic? 1,2 and 3 are a huge mess, 5 is blah and 6, he could wear about anything, or better yet nothing, and well...
4 is... interesting may be?

But you're right, the bumblebee socks are a nice touch.

i.r. said...

@xoussef - No, they were dead serious! Dubai is a hipster paradise, or so TimeOut ppl would like us to believe.
I on the other hand, am lucky enough to never encounter such debonair/hairy/leggy outfits.

xoussef said...

Lucky you then. Never encountered the type myself , not enough expts and no cross over to the local scene as far as I can ascertain. I'm not sure I'd tolerate well the attitude or the eyesore, so all good :)
