Esquire Magazine names Pope Francis "Best Dressed Man of 2013"

This is not your grandfather's Pope. Or is he?

Much has been written about the "new" tone of Pope Francis and his approach to leading the Catholic Church. He's a simple man, carrying his own bags, paying his own hotel bill. And he is a man of great compassion.

Late in 2013, Pope Francis was named Time Magazine's "Person of the Year."

And now, Equire Magazine has named the pontiff the "Best Dressed Man of 2013."

Esquire says:

While Bradley Cooper, Chris Pine, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have all had banner years, their sartorial choices begin and end on the proverbial red carpet. Meanwhile, Pope Francis's sartorial decisions have subtly signaled a new era (and for many, renewed hope) for the Catholic Church.

As Pope, Francis has chosen the most simple papal ring and is most often seen in the simple white robe and skullcap. He also ditched the red leather shoes.

Mary Lisa Gavenas, author of The Fairchild Encyclopedia of Menswear told Esquire, "Pope Francis understands that menswear is meant to express the character of the men wearing the clothes. No rapper-style popewear for him." [via Huffington Post]
