Pope named "Best Dressed Man of 2013" by Esquire

The leader of the Catholic Church has been called many things and if he weren't so famously humble, he could boast about his new title, "Best Dressed Man of 2013," following Esquire magazine's announcement.

Esquire magazine announced its "Best Dressed Man of 2013" and the winner is -- drum roll, please -- Pope Francis!

Beating out Bradley Cooper, Chris Pine, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the pope garnered praise for his wardrobe's sincerity and symbolism.

Esquire's decision to bestow the pope with the fashionable title of "Best Dressed Man of 2013" was supported by Fashion Institute of Technology assistant professor Mark-Evan Blackman who declared the papal fashion "really does reflect the mindset behind it." New York University associate professor Ann Pellegrini concurred, noting "The humility of his garments offers a way to visibly display his theological and material concerns for the poor. This Holy Roman emperor really does have new clothes."
