Please read: I am also running a poll to determine the best dressed country here. Make sure you vote!
Style and Geography can be related. Or at least I’ll make it seem so.
If you are anything like me: a big fan of men’s style and a freak of Geography, then you must have also wondered which countries in the world could claim to have to best dressed men.
I hope I’m not the only one thinking about this.
Anyway, after spending a few days analyzing social media (mainly my Instagram and Tumblr accounts) and looking at different pictures from men stemming from all over the world, I have come up with this list of countries where you’re most likely to find well-dressed men.
So without further ado, I present to you…
The Top 10 Countries With The Best Dressed Men (According To My Dapper Self)
German men are not only punctual and hard-working, they’re also elegant and well-dressed. I guess looking good is also an important part of a gentleman’s responsibilities in Germany. As a huge fan of all German culture it is a pleasure to have this wonderful country take the 10th place.
Spain comes in at number nine. There are some great syles coming from the Iberian peninsula, and those Spaniards are definitely making a great impression in the way they dress. In fact, I’m sure if I make this same rank in 2016 this country will probably escalate a few places in this countdown. We’ll see…
What makes this a great country, with amazing dressers is not only the elegance they carry on their outfits, but also how bold and original they can be in their choices. I’m a huge admirer of guys willing to take sartorial risks and Poles are one of the best at doing this.

7. HONG KONG
Well, technically not a country, or is it? I’m not sure. What I do know is that Hong Kong stand out as a very dapper region, where you are very likely to find extremely well dressed gents. First Asian country in this list.
6. UNITED STATES
I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to put the USA in the 6th place. Honestly, I believe the best American dressers are up there in the top 3, but the USA can also be considered guilty for introducing some not-so-dapper fashion choices to the world. So, thinking about averages, I believe 6th place sound about right.
In reality, all Scandinavian countries enjoy a very good reputation of having very well dressed gentlemen in their population. Sweden is definitely top 5 material and I can easily see this country climbing more positions since the menswear industry seems to be thriving in this beautiful land. Sweden is a country that will give a lot to talk about in the next few years, I’m sure.
Clearly more famous for its female fashion industry, but this doesn’t mean that males in France are behind other countries in terms of style and how they present themselves. After all, Paris is one of the most important cities in this industry, so it is obvious that many gents will have at least some interest in looking their best. Coming up next the top 3…
Our second Asian country in this list, Japan. I feel Japan is the best example of Asian elegance, class and style. The amount of men I’ve seen in fantastic suit and tie ensembles on social media and all over the web is astounding. I have absolutely no doubts that Japan deserves this spot as the top 3 country with the best dressed men.
This is where it got really hard. I knew what the top 2 countries would be right from the moment I decided to write down this blog post, but deciding which of the two should be first and which should be second had me thinking and thinking and then thinking even more. In the end, I decided Italy should come second. If we were to talk about fashion, then this would be my number one, but we’re focusing on well-dressed men here.
That’s right folks. The United Kingdom takes this once (especially London), and I know this should come as no surprise to anyone, since we are all aware of how important elegance is for the English culture. If suits and ties are your style, then London is the best place on Earth where you will find style everywhere you look. A well-deserved position for this amazing, dapper country. Well done, Englishmen, well done.
Now it’s your turn, my dapper friends. I am sure many of you will not agree with my top 10 ranking of the best dressed countries, so let’s start the discussion. Share your top 10 ranking in the comments below, it should be fun to read what you have to say.
