ROME — Pope Francis has a new honor to add to his resume. Esquire magazine has named him the best dressed man of 2013.
According to CNN, the magazine admits this is an unconventional decision, but they look to Pope Francis’ simple style decisions as signaling new hope for the Catholic church.
In the past, Pope Benedict wore elaborate robes and a large golden cross.
Today, Pope Francis is making a statement with his simple garments and small iron cross.
Instead of fashion, Pope Francis has been trying to focus on the Catholic church helping the marginalized, the disenfranchised and the poor.
