Style-Off: Emmanuel Adebayor v Milos Krasic

Dear readers: whilst we know that you usually visit our humble site for the hottest manflesh that football can offer, we feel it inappropriate to allow you to labour under the misapprehension that all players are as skillful at dressing themselves as they are at kicking a ball.

Because they’re clearly not.

We take our responsibility to you very seriously, you see.

Willingly giving up their free time to assist us in building our case today are Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor (above) and Juventus’ Milos Krasic (left).

Both went to extraordinary lengths to prove how easy it is to fall into the trap of being a hugely wealthy man and dressing like a blind loon bag by willingly stepping out into the open air in the costumes you see above.

First up, we find Emmanuel, recently having given birth and celebrating the fact with a particularly alarming embroidered jeans/shirt combo. His face carries the beatific expression of a new mom, his neck carries an extra large muslin cloth covered with the remnants of baby’s first organic meal.

Next it’s Milos, modelling the latest in distressed denim (and hair). He accompanies his look with trendy hi-tops, distressing distressed jeans, and a jacket with detachable gilet. Apparently this jacket comes with optional gloves tied to the sleeves with elastic, although we haven’t been able to confirm this.

Which casual look is ringing your bell, people? Is it Manu’s mad parrot, or Milos’s collapsed ‘Flock of Seagulls’?

Tell us. While you still can.

    Both outfits are pretty disasterous in my opinion. :-S

    My dear gentlemen, what is going on??? Let's just wear the kits 24/7 in your cases :-P

    Those pics have rendered me speechless.

    Are you kidding me? I LOVE Manu's look. Sure, it's not typical, nor is it particularly called for for any event (except perhaps a reggaethon, methnks), but it's a LOOK. The whole mariah-carey-meets-kanye-west-over-the-top-styling works when you wear it with pride, and what better way to rock it than by accessorizing with Precious's used pantyhose?

    Ed Hardy must die.

  11. Tephy says:

    Jesus, Mary, Joseph, PEREZ, and Mourinho, please don't let that Ed Hardy/ puke/ cat doody-covered mess anywhere near Real Madrid, thankyouverymuch,

    As always, what would Xavi Alonso do? Clearly, none of the above.

  13. Catie says:

    Ahh yes, nothing like waking up, mistaking your wood chipper for a washer, and then hitting the town to wink at the locals and/or shop for bling.

    If I have to pick, I pick Emmanuel. While he clearly was dressed by a blind Rastafarian, I cannot stand jeans tucked into shoes that are, a) not boots and, b) untied. When Milos learns to tie laces like a big boy, I might be persuaded to have a change of heart.

    "Apparently this jacket comes with optional gloves tied to the sleeves with elastic, although we haven’t been able to confirm this." too funny!

    I'm gonna have to follow Ange's comment (non comment?) on this discussion. :o

  15. aps says:

    There's waaaayyy too much going on with Adebayor. Absolute FAIL!

  16. meh says:

    adebayor, what an absolute tosser. He deserves for these hideous clothes to be wearing him, shame.

  17. coincidentally im watching the tyra show ep with fashion disasters.
    emmanuel adebayor….
    just no.
    likee there are no words to describe my disappointment in his look.
    he looks like someone threw up ed hardy on him.
    he looks like such a douche bag and in the words of tyra, DRECK.
    on the other hand,
    i dont find milos's look completely unfortunate.
    i think he is in desperate need of a new jacket.
    and yeah the jeans arent the greatest,
    but its not the worst part of his ensemble.
    & i think its kickette army duty to hold a clothing burning for mr. adebayor.

  18. wow says:

    emmaunel outfit is more like a 5 year old art assignment he wore, on the other hand i see nothing wrong with Krasic ensemble!!!!!!!!!

  19. lorena_yGp says:

    Kickette's you named fashion disaster #2- Krasic Milan,and he is Milos :-) but I get it- your vision is surely damaged after these style's ;-)

  20. blake2108 says:

    Any reason why he's been names as Milan Krasic, when his name is actually Milos?

    I'd rather undress Milos, lets put it that way…

  21. shay says:

    Manu wins the lack of style off for sure. But honorary mention for MIlan and his terrible jacket.

  22. Ange says:

    o_O …. ummm welll… If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all…. & welll I have NO COMMENT!!! just ..WOOOOOW!!!! there is alot going on!!! *lol*

  23. gi0ia says:

    I really like the first one because he looks so comfortable – unpretentious, relaxed, all of it. As if he really doesn`t care, and that again, IMO is sexy.

    Second one definitely not on! :-( (
