Rio Ferdinand & Cesc Fabregas: The Clothes, They Wear Them Well
Now, lads, we understand that (some of) you may not care to comment about short tents or WAG fashion (though this photo of Gareth Bale’s, uh, situation garnered quite the response on Twitter). However, we ask that you pay attention for the length of time it takes to read this post.
Above is Rio Ferdinand. THAT is how you wear a suit, lads. Great cut, perfect trouser length, appropriate amount of cuff showing below the jacket, exemplary tie knot. Bravo, Rio! Since the men we know tend to appreciate the direct approach, here goes:
If you look like this in a suit, the only thing the ladies will be thinking of is taking it off you.
Click through to see who else was there. Not so subtle hint: Cesc!
As you can see (at left), Cesc Fabregas decided to show up looking fine in a suit. The Arsenal midfielder brought a seriously swoon-inducing amount of stubble to the party. We couldn’t love his bow tie anymore than if we had tied it ourselves and given him a pat on the bum before sending him out for the night.
David Beckham brought along his eldest son Brooklyn, who looked quite dapper for a little guy. Don’t worry, we will not discuss “the barnet that shall not be named” any more. We’re certain it’s only a matter of time before Becks sees the wrong in his ways and comes crawling back to Kickette HQ with a short cut and some bon bons. (Image via Bauer Griffin)
Frank Lampard and his lady, Christine Bleakley were there as well. We take no issue with Lamps’ suit and give him snaps, but nude heels with a black dress and feathered clutch, Bleakley? Who told you to do that? We’d like to speak with them.
Lucky for Bleakley we’ve just launched our new Style Files blog, which offers tips on how to spice up a black dress with colorful accessories. We suggest she visit and take notes. Soon. (Image via Ian Gavan/Getty Images Europe)
See how brilliantly we self-shill? We’re learning from these footballers.
So Kickettes, and fellas (if any of you have made it this far), which player do you thinks the best in his suit?
