For the Autumn/Winter 2010-2011, GQ Style UK published an editorial that included male models in amazing jackets and outfits that seem to have been gone through rubble and dirt for that extra worn in look. The editorial entitled 'Outlaws' features clothing from top labels such as Burberry Prorsum, Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano just to name a few.
This story was photographed by Guzman and styled by Jo Levin, with the help of the rugged outdoors to supplement the dusty look. The modernly western-type shoot in GQ Style UK 2010-2011 is all about urbanity and becoming a fashionable outcast in the big bad city.
