Robbed! This week, Forbes magazine named the best dressed athletes of 2010. There are three basketball players, two NFLers, two hockey players, three tennis players (well, four people, if you count the William’s sisters as two, which they don’t), one soccer player, one boxer, one golfer and one equestrian. There is an equestrian on there. But not ONE baseball player. Huh? Baseball players have some style issues, but they couldn’t find one put on the list? Inexcusable snub. Y’all know what’s coming next. Here it is: SF Diamond Girl’s Best Dressed Baseball Players list. Here we go.
Best Dressed: Ryan Braun
No one saw that coming, right? Not only does Ryan always ace it in public appearances he designs his own line of clothing which is hip, unique and still a little classic. The line is described as, “[It] displays rich symbols of past and present, good and evil, grit and glam recreated in a pageantry of fashion. Emblems of war, peace, love and myth, are woven into the wearable translation of an unfolding story.” If I spent $60 on a t-shirt, I would totally buy one. But, on principle, I won’t.
Runner-Up: Andy Pettitte
I just adore the way Andy plays with stripes here. The straight and diagonal stripes mesh in a slightly edgy look and the grey suit and pink tie complement each other perfectly. Huge success.
Runner Up #2: Andres Torres
Yeah, I know he’s blinking. But this is the only picture where you can see the boot-cut jeans in all their glory. And the trendy jacket. It’s casual and fun and the darker wash jeans make it professional enough for the event at hand. (But not too professional. See Zito for a this-is-what-you-should-not-do.)
So Forbes, you were wrong. Baseball players can be fashion gurus too. And I would like to say that Beckham, Casiraghi, and Federer are the only people who warrant the title of best-dressed on your list. Robbed, I say!
