AN ASPIRING journalist from Merseyside was handpicked as one of Britain’s best dressed real men.
Jack Murray, 18, from Wallasey, is one of 12 finalists in Esquire magazine’s hunt.
Jack, who leads a band called Fake Union, said he gets most of his clothes from charity shops and the rest he “steals from elderly relations”.
His wardrobe staple is a tweed blazer and he reckons that, when it comes to luggage, nothing beats an old-fashioned leather bag “with a good buckle”.
Since launching Britain’s Best Dressed Real Man 2010 in April Esquire was swamped by hundreds of entries.
Nominations came in from guys who thought they had what it takes and from women who thought their partners were the most stylish.
Style scouts also set off on tour in search of snappy dressers from Leeds to London and Edinburgh to Bristol.
Esquire wanted “guys who had flair, individuality, an understanding of the basic rules of menswear, a sense of how to put a look together and who could take an outfit and make it their own”.
