"So Example, what do you think has made you so popular?", we ask in the awesome new issue of FHM. "I'm like a bloke next door. I don't look like a superstar, I'm more accessible." That's exactly what we thought. To show just what a regular guy he is, Example gives us his five style essentials...

1) Chateau Roux Baseball Jacket

FHM: Looks cool, haven't we seen that before?
Example: I wore it in my Stay Awake video.
FHM: Ah.

Gimmie: £80.00 from


2) Carharrt Woven Belt

FHM: That's a bloody nice belt. Huge, but nice.
Example: I buy a new one every year in brown and black, they're hard-wearing and look good for smart or casual.

Gimme: £59.95 from UrbanExcess.com

3) Adidas Ransom Hi-top Trainers

Example: I've been wearing these every night on stage in bright red or blue to make a little colour statement in a mostly black outfit, dark grey is a good option for the day time.

Gimme: £76.00 FarFetch.com

4) Belstaff jackets

Example: I now own four of these, they're a real investment as you can wear them for years, warm, practical and ladies love 'em.

Gimme: £609.99 AccentClothing.com

5) Vintage Band T shirts

Example: I've been wearing these a lot recently on stage, picking them up on my travels. I've got Nirvana, Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins, Dr. Dre and Notorious B.I.G in my suitcase.
FHM: Wow, that must be a pretty big suitcase.

The January issue has landed, featuring the brilliant triple-whammy of Olivia Munn, the 2012 FHM Calendar and the breakthrough artist of the year, Example, reviewing the moments that have made 2011 in the first ever FHM Annual. It's on shelves now, and it looks like this:


Example FHM

If 2011 was the year that British pop exploded, then Example was the man lighting the match and tipping petrol on the fire. The 28-year-old spent the year peering down from the top of the charts, pissing off the establishment, and having his fair share of fun (and ladies) along the way. Who better, then, to call time on the year, than our newly crowned dude of 2011…
