WATCH: Marcus Samuelsson Calls His Mom In The Middle Of A GQ Shoot

We can only assume that it is a great honor to be deemed stylish enough for GQ to run a video about one’s top ten style essentials. We’re not too shocked that the always suave Marcus Samuelsson was the latest subject, and we could almost predict what style items he’d bring out — Converse shoes, notebooks, a fruity apron — and then, as number seven, he listed his mom.

“A mother-son relationship is very special,” he says, and then proceeds to call her. We have no idea what he’s saying, as their conversation’s completely in Swedish, but, like most conversations with mothers, it goes on and on and on and on and on.

Most glaring snub: Marcus totally ignored his hat collection, and now all his fedoras have low self-esteem.
