A salute to the suit WELCOME TO THIS SPECIAL GQ BEST-DRESSED MEN OF THE YEAR EDITION – OUR TENTH. And to answer a common query about the event: how does one get to be on the list?

WINNING WORDS Dear GQ, While reading Arthur Artwell’s article on ‘Why I won’t start another startup’, I chuckled and had a really warm feeling. Perhaps it had to do with the glass of wine I’d had. Having been an entrepreneur for almost 10 years of my life with six failed ventures, I knew exactly what he was talking about: the ‘pitching dens’, business plan competitions, startup conferences and workshops, SMME networking events and innovation hubs. The filling in of application forms for startup grants and finance, begging for a desk and a chair at the SMME incubator workspace... none of those paid rent and put lights on at home. I remember very well a time after a business plan competition in Durban, when I had progressed to the second stage and had made…
