Ed Sheeran has been named as the worst dressed man of 2012 by GQ magazine.
The singer, who released the hugely succesful album ‘+’ in 2011, was given the dubious accolade ahead of Max George of The Wanted, political commentator Andrew Marr and Match of the Day pundit Robbie Savage. GQ referenced Sheeran’s decision to wear a hoodie when performing at the 2012 Olympics among their reasons for naming him the least stylish man in Britain.
However, Sheeran did not take the title too seriously and posted a number of tweets about it online. Starting off by saying, “Named Number One worst dressed male in GQ, glad they noticed” Sheeran later added: “I did wear a Burberry suit once.”
Elsewhere on the list were entries for MP Jon Cruddas, reality TV star Alex Reid and millionaire art dealer Ivor Braka. Downton Abbey actor Dan Stevens was voted the best dressed man in the same issue.
GQ’s worst dressed men of 2012 list is as follows:
1. Ed Sheeran

3. Alex Reid
4. Max George
5. James Tindale
