What is it about Mad Men‘s John Slattery that makes women go crazy? Or what about Hollywood’s hottest bachelor, George Clooney? Is the way both men wear suits? Is it their staggering talent? Is it their natural swagger. Maybe, or maybe it’s because no woman can resist a silver fox.
The platonic ideal of a silver fox is a man who is both silver-haired and foxy. Does the word “foxy” make you feel a bit weird? That’s fine. It’s a weird word to describe a man who is insanely hot. He’s got killer bone structure, fantastic style, wit and charm. So, we’ve created a highly scientific rubric to figure out with greying guys truly deserve to be called “silver foxes.”
First, we’re grading all of the men on this list first on how “silver” their hair is. Is he slowly starting to go silver? Is he greying at the temples? That will give him a score somewhere between 1 and 5. Is he completely silver? A total 10. Please note that one of the men on this list is very clearly trying to cover his silver with hair dye. We had to go back a few months to find a photo where you could see the grey, and let’s just say he narrowly missed a negative score for committing such a treason against humanity.
Next, we’re ranking them all on how hot they are, which is pretty self-explanatory. Finally, we’re tallying those two scores together to get their final “SILVER FOX” score. That’s it. That’s how we ranked this list. It’s all very scientific, except not at all.
Whether you agree with our rankings or not, you’ve got to concede that the 25 men on this list are proving that silver is better than gold.
