Joshua Linam of IGN’s Askmen.com has named the “Top 6 Coolest Guys in Fashion.” Christopher Parr, Pursuitist CEO & EIC, is included on this great list, which also includes Luis Fernandez, Timo Weiland, Michael Macko, James Andrew and Ryan Cook. The bloggers, designers and luxury marketing gurus showcased on the list share their favorite fashion brands and style advice. Parr, our very own EIC, shares his go-to style staples — which includes J.Crew, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Belstaff, TAG Heuer, Cole Haan — adding “When traveling, I grab my Belstaff jacket and go with a Barbour bag tossed over my shoulder — it’s stocked with my iPad 2, a few Cuban cigars and Johnnie Walker Black flask.”
