The 15 Best-Dressed Players in the NFL
Victor Cruz (New York Giants)
Number one, not only because he took his Super Bowl victory lap through New York Fashion Week. But because he did it in tailored suits with bold details, like windowpane checks and patterned ties, by established American designers like Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein.
Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals)
Because he's a man who sets rules for himself and follows them. Tailored, always. Pocket square, always. Contrasting collar, sometimes. Lacking in effort, never.
Tom Brady (New England Patriots)
Because he's been the standard bearer of well-dressed athletes for years now, even as he constantly — perhaps too constantly — keeps changing his hair. And because, if your wife were Giselle, you would try this hard, too.
Clay Matthews (Green Bay Packers)
Because most NFL players have trouble nailing a simple navy suit, and seem like a kid at a wedding if you give them a tuxedo, but this man pulls off an old-school off-white dinner jacket like he was born in it.
Robert Griffin III (Washington Redskins)
Because the bright socks he often wears are just a small piece, albeit a loud one, of a wardrobe that's executed well enough for us to (perhaps prematurely) deem RGIII style rookie of the year.
Reggie Bush (Miami Dolphins)
Because dating a Kardashian seems to do wonders for a wardrobe that lasts much longer than those relationships. In Bush's case, he's the rare guy who can make a vest work in outfits that go beyond the classic three-piece suit. Chris Humphries, take note.
Tim Tebow (New York Jets)
Because few men, let alone NFL QB's, have rolled into the annual Met Gala wearing a Ralph Lauren Purple Label tuxedo and stolen the attention away from the bevy of actresses and models parading down the red carpet. And because, though we were worried he wouldn’t step it up upon moving to New York, he's actually looking pretty good.
Alex Smith (San Francsico 49ers)
Because, while many of his peers go for flash, he dresses like he plays: clean, understated, and reliable.
Kerry Rhodes (Arizona Cardinals)
Because the man can somehow wear five different accessories at a time (count them: watch, sunglasses, earing, tie, scarf) and not look overdressed. The sharkskin grey suit he pairs them with doesn’t hurt the cause, and brings plenty of swagger on its own.
Nnamdi Asomugha (Philadelphia Eagles)
Because Google Image results return as many, if not more, photos of him in a good suit as in his uniform.
