Lads In Mags: Manchester United For T Magazine

Hot robot Vida in a Dries Van Noten coat, Georgio Armani shirts, and Diesel jeans? We’ll have two please. Extra sauce. All images via NYTimes.com/T Magazine.

Normally The New York Times is too editorially complex and verbose for us to read amidst the haze of our weekend hangovers.

This past weekend, however, we caught ourselves a sturdy robot bone.

T Magazine, the Times’ fashion extra, featured a gratuitous spread of some of Manchester United’s prettiest past and present players. This got us thinking about how professional athletes really do make the best male models. Obviously we’re biased, but taut, chisled bodies honed by hours of running and training are clearly the best live hangers.

Let’s explore some more, shall we?

Wayne Rooney

It’s because of the aforementioned athletic prowess that we get to see Wayne Rooney completely outfitted in a Tom Ford ensemble. He looks like the footballer equivalent of Sherlock Holmes, and we won’t apologise for liking it.

Rio Ferdinand

Hardly a stranger to looking damn foine in luxe garments, Ferdy is giving us his best tough guy stance in an Hermes coat, Scotch & Soda shirt, Diesel jeans, and his own Five by Rio Ferdinand shoes.

How would he describe this look? #egg? #oooooof? #movement? #noice? There are a lot of non-sensical possibilities here.

Michael Carrick

M. Carrick is the under-the-radar hottie of this weekend’s model group. He didn’t put himself out there quite like the others, but instead of playa hatin’ we’re congratulatin’ Mr C. on his Bottega Veneta coat and Dolce & Gabbana jumper and jeans. His forehead wrinkles are courtesy of genetics and a lack of sunscreen.

To get your Chicharito and SAF (in a watch that costs more than our total annual booze and sweets budget) fill, be sure to read more here.

    Ahhh Ronaldo, just when I think I'm getting over you, you yank me right back to that place where I can't look away. Ever. I can't even wrap my mind around how perfect he is.

  5. yvette says:

  6. IrishBlue says:

    Loving Chica's pose, very hot but Vidic….VIDIC!!!!!!! Ah words fail me!

  7. Mrs. Q.Borri says:

    Oh my freaking God..!!!! Vida stole it or me… the smile, the clothes, his eyes… the combination of everything!!! I can keep going on for hours nonstop! I love him. Period! :)

  8. Cathryn says:

    It may be creepy but I stared at that pic of Cristiano for waaaayyy too long… I actually kind of studied it from those lil' freckles on his nose to his surprisingly long lashes to the tish of green in his eyes. And now I can safely say that he IS in fact perfect…

  9. Gladys says:

    Hot photos, yes, but where was the Continental?!

  10. Kat says:

    I find it weird, though, that Cristiano was the one who made the cover. All the other players either currently play or retired with Manchester United, and it's the one who currently plays for another team that makes the cover? Weird.

    And my goodness. Chicharito looks like a schoolboy in his ManU suit!

  11. kim says:

    Carrick, Vida and Chicha! So hot. So tasty! Want all of them. Now. In my med. Och.. :D

  12. Kristina says:

  13. xbabyshakesx says:

  14. Anita says:

    Chicharitoo!!!! ♥♥♥ he is always sooo serious but cute!! xD

  15. Sasha says:

    Oh Goddddd, Cris. I don't even care how cliched it is, y'all, or how much we're all supposed to have moved on to less abdominally-excessive pastures — I would make sweet sweet love to every pore on his face. Also, have you guys seen those clips from his documentary, where they demonstrate once and for all that his body is, in fact, a wonderland? He looks like some kind of FutureSexLoveBot from space and IT IS AMAZING.

    • DebS says:

      Those videos were simply amazing, especially the part where he was able to judge how the cross was coming in just from the body language of the kicker and then put it in the net with the lights out immediately after the ball was kicked. He just makes it look so easy.

  16. Figgy says:

    Aw Vida & his smile! Kinda reminds me of Bumble-bee from transformers.. May look like a robot, but hes all hugs & smiles & filled with adorable-ness :')

  17. GigiSantaCruz says:

    OMG Vida is so.. so.. so.. HOT!!! His smile (ok ok and all the rest of him, including the outfit) just killed me!

    Now that is quality journalism!!!
