The Seven Style Kingpins You Need to Know

...and the Instagram Feeds Behind Them

If the heroes of menswear were to form an actual team of heroes, first of all, the spandex and capes would be banished (okay, maybe Wooster could pull off a cape). But this scenario is unlikely enough that we've been forced, for your benefit, to assemble said team ourselves, with the help of the handsomest Instagram feeds on the medium. 
These seven stylish men are the ones to measure your sartorial skills against...

1. Josh Peskowitz
After stints in the editorial world at Fader and Details, Peskowitz took his eye for laid-back streetwear and turned it into the LA shop Magasin, where he stocks the coolest brands around.

2. Nick Wooster
Stylish man about town who anyone with a casual interest in street style will recognize. He’s also done some design for Italian label Lardini.

3. Mark Anthony Green
He’s better known as GQ’s Style Guy, taking up the mantle from dearly departed Glenn O'Brien, who created the position. His monthly column informs the legion of GQ readers on how to dress like a gentleman. His more-often-than-monthly Instagram informs us of what a sweet gig that is.

4. Justin O’Shea
Most recently the creative director of legendary Italian tailoring house Brioni, O’Shea is widely credited for adding the rock-and-roll edge we’re seeing in suiting lately.

5. Andy Spade
You may have heard of his wife’s label Kate Spade (that he co-runs) or of his brother David Spade (the actor). Or you may have heard of Andy, himself, who launched the bag-and-sometimes-clothes label Jack Spade, and runs the creative agency Partners & Spade.

6. Michael Williams
He started out on the forefront of menswear blogging with his Americana-centric blog A Continuous Lean, which has blossomed into a full-blown menswear empire with the roving Pop Up Flea and various other endeavors.

7. Nick Sullivan
As editorial director of Esquire, you can assume the guy knows a thing or two about men and style. He’s always jetting off to shoots or reminding us of a stylish Jude Law moment he orchestrated in the past.
