Dressed At Gunpoint: Alexis Sanchez

Are they baggy riding pants? Are they made of corduroy? Help us understand. Images via David Ramos/Getty Images Europe.

If Alexis Sanchez is going to bring the fashion crazy like he did at his unveiling in Barcelona at the weekend, then we are all aflutter. Moving from Italian club Udinese to the much more high profile Barcelona will allow his perceived sartorial shortcomings a much bigger stage.

When one wears mushroom-colored, drop-crotch skinny trousers with Chucks and a denim shirt last seen on Peter Fonda in 1974, we know we’re in for something good. The fellas of La Liga need a new injection of crazy into their fashion repertoire.

Your move, Sergio.

    The funny thing about his outfit is that, unlike some of my beloved Barca players, who tend to ere on the side of overly decorated ripped jeans/t-shirts and tacky sports shoes, his is more of a trying-to-be-too-trendy fail. In fact, aside from those pants, which might not look bad on a tall, skinny guy, and the shirt they made him wear, his taste is pretty subdued. Hopefully, he'll get inspiration from some of the more toned-down players (Abidal, Ibi, Leo, Masch, Maxwell, etc.), and not from Villa's shoe closet.

    the outfit is terrible, but i thibk he can kinda pull it off lol, but hes not even close to what sergio could have done with that!

    but hey, welcome to the barca family alexis! much love!

    Dude. Just…wow.

    They're called carrot trousers. Saggy crotch but skinny fit. Getting more popular since ASOS started selling them. I think they're horrid, personally, but if you're naming your clothing styles after vegetables, well, there wasn't much hope to begin with.

      I've seen them around a bit lately, and now it makes sense why. I personally think they make men look like penguins (think Dick Van Dyke doing the penguin dance in Mary Poppins)… but the carrot description fits, too!

    Dressed, undressed, he is so velcome! I have a good feeling about this! And he cant be worse than Sergio.

    SO happy you posted something about Sanchez! I'm already addicted to his smile, can't wait to see him on the pitch!
    Also, the photos from his physical made me feel slightly light-headed. ;)

  9. Sophie says:

    Wow that is shockingly bad. Everything in that picture his outfit, the badge in the backround (I'm an Arsenal fan which explains me current dislike of Barcelona) makes me queasy. Make it go away please.

    Maybe my beloved David Villa won't be the worst dressed baller on the team anymore. :)

    • danielle says:

      David has found his fashion soul mate. I see many shopping trips together in the future for the 2 of them

    In the ranks of the fashionably-dressed Barça players, I'm going to put him somewhere below Villa (who at least wears clothes that fit even if his style is interesting) but still above Dani Alves, who often dresses with eye-watering abandon (but we love him for it) and (sadly) Iniesta, who lets his girlfriend dress him far too often.

    Nattiest Barça dressers are Pedro (always perfectly groomed), Valdes (denim never looked so good), and Xavi (it’s the shoes. He loves to shop for shoes.). And Pep, duh!

    For me at least he doesn't look THAT bad. Change the High Tops for some Pumps or Shoes and the Black Belt for a more of a beige one to match the trousers and he would look really nice.

    He looks hot though… For me ;)

    Just keep looking at his adorable smile, instead, or else, at these: http://www.fcbarcelona.com/web/english/galeries/f…

    An article said that he was initially wearing a white shirt and Sandro Rosell asked him to change because the white would remind people of Real Madrid. Someone then found that atrocity and gave it for him to wear.
    I don't know if the story is true but this shows the before and after: http://s.glbimg.com/es/ge/f/original/2011/07/26/a…

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      Seriously! Rosell! Lol.

    • Yoss says:

      Another reason for me to dislike Rosell then. With all the statements in the media about Arsenal and now this, he just keeps on growing more and more annoying, lol.

    • FootballDaze says:

      Actually, this was his first appearance, he dressed himself. He was wearing that when he left Chile. The thing with the white shirt happened when he signed the contract, the next day. He was then shown wearing similar type of pants, and one of those black Nike polos from the new line (that's the shirt they gave him). Oh God, I follow these guys too much. He just wore the same pants twice.

  16. Carolé says:

    Oh dear god.

  17. Hot4Spurs says:

    OMG! The wrongness of this outfit is shocking!

    • Aimee1 says:

      Agreed. This is bad. But strangely enough, I think Sergio could have made it work. Love him.

  18. PepaCandela says:

    Even better, he wore it all again (with a different shirt) the next day!

  19. Sarah, Madrid says:

    I saw it, i was thinking the same he should stayed in the black shirt.

    Oh no, Ramos don't need the competition, please!

    Now, the good thing about the picture, we can see that both of Madrid and Barcelona share the common cheesy "thumbs up" photo. Good, some light for these two. Lol

    • Pam says:

      Agreed that Ramos doesn't need competition or "encouragement". He might decide to wear neon orange shirt and neon green trousers or something outlandish of that sort to outdo Alexis :) We'll have to wear shades to look at that picture if we care about our eyesight!

      Now, I am thinking Madrid and Barca photographers graduated from the same photography school! May be encouraging subjects to thumbs up while posing is a requirement for graduation from that school? ;)

      • Sarah, Madrid says:

        I know but we will keep looking at him regardless of what he wears, I am starting to get it, maybe he keep on wearing yellow, green, organ pants and no-one say anything to him because no-one cares what he wears,he can manage to keep us staring and imagine him without it :p

    • jean says:

      couldnt have said it better. What is their obsession with thumbs up? lol:)

    Hahaha rofl "your move Sergio" ;) )))
