Jake Gyllenhaal Is Fashion World’s Second Banana

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Esquire magazine announced its “Best Dressed Men in the World” list this week, and while actor Jake Gyllenhaal came in at No. 2, that doesn’t mean he’ll necessarily have to try harder to be No. 1.

Esquire’s fashion editor Nick Sullivan says 24- year-old Gyllenhaal has “done well to go from nowhere to No. 2.”

Gyllenhaal was edged out of first place by 32-year-old musician Pharrell Williams’ “lean fitted...old school” look but Sullivan says Gyllenhaal’s “ubiquitous, neither dressed up or dressed down” style is here to stay for a while.

The magazine doesn’t often rank their best dressed men and Sullivan says he isn’t sure if they’ll do it again.

But in Sullivan’s words, “We’ll just have to see how [Gyllenhaal] does over the next few months to see if he’ll jump up a spot.”
