Stylish in the NFL

Our own intrepid leader, Joey Wendt, attended the 2014 NFL Owners’ meetings in Orlando this week, where all of the NFL’s coaches, managers, GMs and owners were putting their heads together to discuss the future of the League.  We’ve dressed a lot of NFL players and personnel in our time, and Joey is always out there making sure that the NFL’s finest are looking their best!

In honor of the occasion, let’s take a look back at some of the NFL’s most stylishly sartorial men from over the League’s long history.  Let’s be honest, being stylish and in the NFL is a relatively recent development (which we’d like to think we had something to do with! :D), so most of these guys are of a recent vintage.

Dancing with the Doctor

It’s been a very long time since we’ve taken a trip into a nerdy subject, so it’s a great time to revisit some of the fun of sci-fi fashion!  We’ve previously gone over visions of the future, “Star Trek” uniforms, and more, but this time we’re taking a look at a sci-fi staple that has made coming up with a new outfit every few years a staple: “Doctor Who.”

The_Doctor

If you aren’t familiar, “Doctor Who” is a British television series about an alien from the planet Gallifrey who goes by the self-appointed title of “The Doctor,” because he sees himself as someone who helps and fixes things and people.  He travels throughout the breadth of time and space in his spaceship/time machine, the TARDIS, which is broken, and so is stuck disguised as a 1963-period blue British Police Box on the outside.

The show has been running since 1963, and since actors aren’t immortal, The Doctor has been played by a multitude of actors over the years.  The show dealt with this very creatively.  The Doctor, being an alien “Time Lord,” has the ability to “regenerate” whenever he’s fatally injured, but not injured so severely that he dies outright.  He becomes a new man, and, while still a rebirth of the same person, has a new face, new personality quirks, and new tastes, including in fashion.  The Doctor tends to stick to one or two outfits throughout an incarnation’s tenure, and with the recent reveal of the newest Doctor, the 12th, and his new outfit, it seemed like a perfect time to have some fun, and look back at 51 years of a quirky, hyperactive fictional alien’s bizarre fashion choices!

Best Dressed in 2013

All of the big fashion magazines have weighed in with their “best dressed men” list of the past year, and some of the choices were universal, like Justin Timberlake, who showed up on virtually every list, or Idris Elba, one of our favorites.  Others were a bit more unexpected, like Esquire‘s insane/brilliant choice of Pope Francis as the “best dressed” of 2013!

We’ve compiled a gallery of our favorite choices from the selections of all of the mags, to put together our own “best dressed” celebrities list.  They are in no particular order, because picking a single “best” out of this group would be one of the most difficult choices imaginable.  This was a great year for menswear! Let us know who you think should be in this gallery, and who shouldn’t, and who you think was the best overall!
