Best Dressed 2017 - Ehab Ammar
The late Hardy Amies said it best when he declared: “A man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care and then forgotten all about them.” Beyond this guiding principle, the formula for a stylish man is harder to pinpoint. So for 2017's selection of the Esquire's Best Dressed Men in the Gulf, we’ve looked at men who wear their clothes with a sense of individuality, confidence and consideration.
It is this enjoyment that best captures Ammar’s look, which he describes as “Amalfi Coast holiday meets ballroom dance,” a strange-sounding combination but one that in practice works surprisingly well.
He talks with passion about his favourite brands, such as Brunello Cucinelli, Rubinacci, Michael Bastian and Thom Browne, which he describes as either offering a perfect fit, or having demonstrated exceptional quality over the years.
Stating that the only fashion faux pas he can’t stand as a “bad attitude”, you get a sense of his positive outlook. “The best style advice I ever received was to always wear bespoke shirts,” he says. “About a year ago I was introduced to an incredible shirt tailor in Florence, Simone Abbarchi.” Teamed with his Cartier watch, he’s the epitome of style.
