In the latest issue of GQ Style Charlie Porter is waxing lyrical about the ’21st Century Flat Top’ and I have to say I agree. It fits in with a new style preppiness and clean minimalism which is the antithesis of Hedi Slimane’s slimfit rockstar look.

We’ve got a great pick of the blogs for you this week, Style Salvage
Steve EJ is also thinking about quiffs, more specifically the Mozza kind who is his her current style inspiration.
Filep Motwary interviews emerging menswear designer Sotiris Georgiou, saying: “Do you understand what it means to me, seeing more people loving fashion in this depressing city I live in?” Come on Filep, Athens can’t be that bad can it? We are all looking at the hail and lightning outside the Shiny Towers window at the moment and wishing we were anywhere but London.
So I realise that this is the second time we ( fine, I) have looked at Hayden Christensen on a magazine cover over a relatively short time period but surely a young male celebrity who has every reason to be guarded with the use of his image but agrees to be on the cover of a men’s (non-dirty) magazine in only its second issue deserves to mentioned in our blog? Now better looking blog I might mention.
That and the fact that this issue contains interviews with Alexander McQueen, Editorials with Catherine McNeil, Sean Opry, Camilla Akrans and a whole feature shot underwater. Honestly, am I the only one supressing their child-like excitement here?
GQ have once again voted Daniel Craig as their best-dressed man, the bond star pipped Noel Fielding to the post who came second thanks to GQ tell us, ‘mainly the female vote’. The pint-sized comedy pixie is known for his dandy dress sense and has admitted to getting his accessories in Topshop.
There Will Be Blood Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis came third in the poll and the lovely Giles Deacon was bringing up the rear at number 19, see after the jump for the full list.
Someone in the lingerie trade must be pulling major PR strings. Just when we had got to grips with Lily and Gemma on the cover of i-D, we now have Rachel Bilson in American GQ. The ex-OC starlet is publicizing her new action film, Jumper, and talks about her own life, a childhood car crash and jumps on the celebrity bandwagon of adding her two pence to the Britney Spears debate (Bilson personally thinks we should all leave her alone.) In the accompanying interview and Ellen Von Unwerth-shot editorial, Bilson proves herself to be a confident and re-invented actress amidst a sea of young starlets threatening to steal her American-sweetheart crown. Not that she wanted it anyway.

Menswear magician Stuart Vevers has pulled another trick out of the bag (no pun intended!) The Brynmore (left) is a stunning piece that combines a classic style with incredible design to make a piece that all men will be proud to BRANDISH (this is a worrying habit). The Barnaby right, is another bag from the new collection and another future classic. It is made with natural leather and has an internal pocket as well as quick release buckles. Spacious, well made and thoughtfully designed, Vevers realises what men need in a bag and allows the wearer to live without the accessory getting in the way. In an interview with GQ magazine, Vevers explained that "Mulberry bags show an appreciation of beautiful quality not ostentation," and this week’s Wishlist items are testament to that. Just don’t let the price tag stop you.
