The Ramos Redemption: Stripes, Sunnies & Slicked Back

For those in the know, Sergio Ramos is a man made of a very original, very particular kind of sizzle.
As we mentioned a little while back when he made his debut on our Finest Five list, The Ramos’s appeal is rather straight-forward: he’s shagtastic. That he wears “creative” shorts, makes bad choices in belt-wear and sports shiny reflective bathers just adds to the enigma wrapped in an enigma that is SR. We chuckle, we are confused, but we still would. Twice.
After our award-winning (Stunted) Style Icon released a photo of his recent hair cut (a hugely important international news incident,) we had intense internal office discussions about what his next move would be. A sequin vest? A new necklace made of conch shells? A bedazzled shin-guard?
No. As you can see by these shots of Sergio last weekend, baby’s got his groove back. He’s slick, he’s stripey and he’s completely redeemed.
