A staunch advocate of the sharp suit and a dedicated follower of bespoke tailoring, Dylan Jones has emerged as one of Britain's leading style gurus.
Editor of the British edition of GQ magazine for the past six years, Jones came to the job with a background of several years in style and fashion journalism.
The son of air force parents, he studied design and photography at London's Chelsea College of Art & Design and Saint Martins School of Art. But rather than becoming a designer himself, his career took him in the direction of writing on the subject.
In 1983 he joined newly launched design magazine i-D as editor, cementing its reputation as one of the most style-conscious glossies. He then went on to work for the iconic The Face magazine, Arena, The Sunday Times and The Observer.
His books include biographies of fashion designer Sir Paul Smith and Doors frontman Jim Morrison, a New York Times bestseller.
His most recent book, iPod, Therefore I am, came out in mid-2005. The book is an account of his obsession with the must-have music player and the way it is changing our relationship with music.
