The actor taking up the role of Dr Who in the new BBC series has shown he could give ex-lead David Tennant a run for his money in the fashion stakes.

A trademark suit and Converse trainers helped Tennant bring the sci-fi classic up to date, but successor Matt Smith could get people copying his style with Humor jeans and worn leather boots.

GQ has chosen the actor as one of the Most Stylish Men of the Week, after he was spotted wearing a leather jacket, aviator sunglasses and black distressed jeans, adding a brown leather satchel to complete the look.

"The new Doctor shows he's got more in his Tardis than a tweed jacket and on-trend bow tie. And there's no debate: time lord-worn leather boots and bag beat suit and Converse trainers," the publication said.

Men looking for up-to-date styles could go for the Humor Santiago Twisted Affect jeans, which come in black, grey, dark blue and stonewashed blue.
