Define stylish? "stylish" usually means what ever the pop culture throws up on us, what the kids think. Case in point that Button pic above, awful colors and design, but young ones with no clue would say it is stylish....basically the whole "stylish" concept is VERY subjective.

In all seriousness, we'd have a much more interesting world if more men disregarded carbon-copy senses of style one can pick up from the TV or display windows (see Button and the cliched "classic look") and simply did their own thing and had fun while doing it. That's why I think Schu actually displayed much more of a fashion sense than most I've seen in F1--he had the confidence to simply make his own, sometimes hilarious, choices and not really giving a hoot about what the professional fashionistas had to say. (And frankly, much of the time I think he was also having us on.) Too much of fashion too often seems to be merely following the herd and is utterly boring.

Wait, I just realised that Kimi rides a bike with 'Iceman' on the tank. Gees Kimi, just when I was starting to warm to you.

As long as this is the hoped for look, it's sloppy to have the shirt show above the tie knot.
Not Button's fault, Hugo Boss and the ad agency get credit.

Emerson, unless it's a trick question?

Incidentally I recently saw a pic of Keke in his pre mustache days, and wouldn't have recognised him in a million years.

My personal rule has always been

Fashionable = follows current trends (which will look shit in a few years, hello Harlem Shake)
Stylish = Has a much longer lifespan. di Montezemolo can look very stylish when he isnt committing the ultimate clothing sin of wearing his shirt collar over his jacket lape. Who the hell does that other than female politicians and the cast of Swingers?

I don't think we have any trend-setters in terms of style. But in terms of charisma and personality, Vettel is up there. Raikkonen has got his own cult following because of his personality. Button looks okay with some photo-shoots. That's about it, I guess.

When it comes to style and class there is only one answer imo.

What about Sir Jackie? I know tartan trousers don't appeal to everyone. But this is a man who has his left sleeves slightly short so as not to hide his Rolex.

Lol!My thoughts exactly!!And Webber definately has his man-radar intact!Hopefully that hasnt diminished like his racing right now!

Guys,how about the most unstylish?I think its a straight shootout between Vettel and Di resta.

I'm no expert on style. The only way I have of judging these things is by haircuts, and on that basis I'd say Grosjean. Just goes to show there's no points for style in F1, as a cursory glance at the WDC standings will tell you...

Not everyone knows the drivers of yesteryear as well as you apparently do. Maybe you should appreciate that if he's asking the question he's interested .... which should please you?

45 minutes and something happened - a saw a glimpse of a face. Quite sure it was female though. I will stay at this task!

No one can beat Keke when it comes to being stylish.
