A workday lunch break in New York City is a wide-open thing: you could eat, hit up a sample sale, be harassed by bizarrely good looking construction workers (like I was today) or just wander around and see if anything interesting is going on. You never know, perhaps youâ€™ll stumble upon a cook-off between two of the hottest chefs reality TV has ever seen (like I did today). Ilan Hall and Sam Talbot were the reasons I watched Bravoâ€™s â€œTop Chef.â€ Their food was always interesting (theyâ€™re very talented guys and all) but really I watched it because theyâ€™re both astonishingly good looking and have incredible style. (There I said it. I mean, look at them!)
A big part of their incredible style is the fact that both these boys love their accessories. On the show, Ilan was rarely seen without diamond studs in both of his ears, bright old-school sneakers and at least one giant watch, if not many. He has a penchant for pink bandanas and great glasses. Sam is known for wearing his grandfatherâ€™s dog tags (for good luck), and is a big fan of rings, chunky leather cuffs and D.I.Y. bracelets. They both know whatâ€™s up. But what do the fans think of their sartorial choices? Which hot chef has the top accessories?
