11:35 pm Contributed by JW

Whether you like this or not, the most influential man in men fashion world is definitely not Barak Obama, not yet. Brad Pitt is out, Mathew Fox is not in this list. So who else is in your mind?

Yes. David Beckham. If you have read any of the recent news. Dolce & Gabbana is in fact think that David Beckham is one of the most influential people in men's fashion.

The Italian designers' menswear range is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary. Neither can believe they have been so successful in the industry, and believe teaming up with the soccer star in the late 90s really boosted their range.

"Before, it (men's fashion) was for social things, for gays, for eccentrics, for weirdos; it was a small market. David was the start, a hot, straight, family man with kids. He was such a big star and he gave the possibility to be fashionable to millions. He made it possible for men to approach fashion without fear. Men felt if he can do it, I can," Stefano Gabbana said.

The duo admits they wouldn't wear all the clothes they create, but say each piece has some of their personality in it. Both Stefano and Domenico Dolce design with their ideal man in mind, explaining they create looks they want to see men experimenting with.

So do you really agree with their statement? Again, we would like to hear from you. :)

    I don’t agree too much with the statement from Stefano Gabbana. I think having the soccer star Beckham was a great business decision and a positive factor for the men's fashion industry but not the sole turning point that made it “possible to be fashionable to millions”. In fashion, there is always change with every generation seeking there own identity.

    Love Beckham! He definitely has had an influence on mens fashion. Cant say he doesn't look that bad in a pair of underwear either!
