Lads In Mags: Manchester United For 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?
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.
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.
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.
