The month of May saw some of the world's most stylish men experiment with looks ranging from double-breasted blazers to checked suits. Between the Cannes Film Festival bringing old-school elegance to the French Riviera and the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala in New York merging the glittering worlds of film and fashion, we deliberated long and hard about which men truly shone in the sartorial stakes. It's not just about tuxedos, but we do think new Batman villain Mr Tom Hardy killed it by pairing a sharp traditional tux with some impressive facial hair. Ultimately, it's the everyday looks where men proved their style credentials - the shade of suit you choose when you're at a smart-casual event on a summery day or the different patterns you choose for your shirt and tie. Whether he's a businessman in Milan or a star walking the red carpet, these men have it sorted when it comes to combining timeless style with a contemporary touch.
