Athletes these days! Not only do they make millions of dollars and have perfect bodies, but they are also developing impeccable taste in clothing. Gone are the days of Michael Jordan’s Hanes-wrought turtlenecks. Ballers from David Beckham to Victor Cruz have learned to tuck their sinewy limbs into custom-tailored suits, complete with skinny ties, for maximum pectoral-enhancing effect. But if Dennis Rodman taught us anything, aside from what our hair might look like with serious peroxide damage, it’s that those with both flash and fashion sense earn the spotlight in sports circles. In honor of the 2012 International Best-Dressed List, a casual survey of professional athletes who are one tie clip ahead of their peers.
New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire transcends the bitter Big & Tall confines of most 6’11” gentlemen, employing tailor Waraire Boswell to fit his suits. Here Stoudemire is seen wearing a well-accessorized Frenchman’s ensemble to a Lanvin show during Paris Fashion Week. Much to the delight of fringe Jewish blogs, he has also been known to wear Star of David rosary necklaces.
