MLB Fashion Watch: Carlos Beltran for TALLIA Orange and Tim Lincecum at the ‘Hawks Game

I was reading through Women’s Fashion Fall 2010 edition of The New York Times Style Magazine and flipping through endless bizarre Hermès ads (think: random horses in the background) when I came upon this one.

Yep, that’s Carlos Beltran.  For the Fall/Winter 2010 TALLIA Orange campaign.   It’s a really pretty campaign and Beltran is an interesting choice.   Not necessarily the first person you’d think of, but a good choice, I think.

His natural coloring matches the clothing and the theme of the ads and he oozes “clothing with a less serious attitude” and whimsical and fun, which is how they describe the line.  The line is available at Macy’s so, guys, go out and buy it.

Now for the less pretty of MLB fashion.  Tim Lincecum at a Seahawks game.

I like how he’s developed a signature style element; the beanie.  And I like how he made an effort to color coordinate the hoodie with the jersey.  Really, I do.  But there is such a thing as over color coordinating.  And this is a walking and talking example.  A simple black or grey hoodie would have emphasized his team jersey, rather than distracting from it.  The general rule is one splash of bright color per outfit.  So if you have a bright skirt, you wear black leggings and a simple t-shirt.  And if he had gotten a hoodie in a different shade of grey it would have drawn in the beanie.  Win-win. 

I’m not just picking on him.  I have my own fashion problems.  I mean, it’s Day 26 in snowflake earrings.  26 days in the same pair of earrings is a giant, giant fashion faux-pas.

p.s.   Who saw the eclipse last night?  The weather was cooperative here and it was incredible.  A little creepy, though, when it was mostly eclipsed.  Because it seriously looked like it was going to turn over and grin at me.  Think Cheshire Cat.  Tim Burton rules.

    Carlos Beltran. That’s funny and yet, as you say, it works. I don’t think any amount of blog-ly pleading on your part is going to get Tim Lincecum to be a fashion plate. Forget drummer, the Freak marches to an entirely different tambourine…but that’s part of what makes him endearing.
    Alas, no, we could not see the eclipse down here in Los Angeles, too much heavy rain and fog. But if it looked Tim Burton-y then I am extra sad I missed it. I’ve been reading and very much enjoying your blog since the playoffs, but this is my first comment.
