Confusing Clothes: Pato and David Beckham
Let’s examine two recent footballer outfits messing with our sartorial senses.
Pato posing in a new Nike photoshoot.
It’s a puffa jacket underneath a hoodie.
Hoodies are the new… the new what? Air system? Environment?
Aren’t puffa jackets at the top of the outerwear food chain?
Unless you’re going to drape some sort of braided mink scarf over that bad boy and hit the show/club/afterparty/hotel (in which case, where’s your cuff-links, mate?) you’re done.
Get down with the goose down!
David Beckham at the Adidas James Bond originals collection launch.
It’s a dress shirt, and tie. Under a paper thin sweatshirt.
Sweatshirts are the new suit jacket.
For the man who needs to be both formal and streetwise – you can wear your cuff-links, identify all six types of caviar at the meet-and-greet, but be able to throw down on the 1s and 2s at the show/club/afterparty/hotel.
