What really makes a man? Some would argue it’s dashingly good looks, others would say a hilarious sense of humour, while some would settle for a great personality. Young’s Hire has taken a look back over the decades, analysing some of the world’s biggest heartthrobs, and as history would have it, it seems it is the suit that definitely makes the man. From Leonardo DiCaprio to John Travolta, here’s their pick of celebrities that wouldn’t be who they are today if it wasn’t for their dapper suits. Brace yourself girls, hotty alert!
Daniel Craig – James Bond
It might be hard for Daniel Craig to look bad in anything but he wears his 007 suit particularly well. Despite his prickly attitude and the threatening readiness to kill, Bond will always be on top of his suit game.
Leonardo DiCaprio – Titanic
