Even though we don’t quite get the chance to cover them as much as we probably should, we have a special place in our fashion-loving hearts for the sports dudes, because they spend their working days stuck in uniforms and when they get the opportunity to show off their fine selves, they tend to go a little wild with it. The results may not always be what we’d call conventionally male-chic, but they’re never dull, and that’s not nothing. Gentlemen? Start your engines.
YES TO EVERYTHING.
Except the mismatched pants. They’ll have to come off immediately.
Sir, we love your rose floral skinny pants and we think your velvet slippers are probably the only correct shoe choice to pair with them, but we’re afraid we have to draw the line at your horrific fanny pack.
It starts off well but like so many of these efforts, it starts falling apart as you scroll down.
This is kind of adorable.
It’s impeccable and head-turning, but we can’t help thinking it looks a little too ’50s doo-wop singer.
The white piping in combination with the chains give it a slightly unfortunate lady undertone, but we really like the idea of this look. Ditch the piping and we’d think it fun.
Another case of “good jacket, questionable pants and shoes.”

We guess we shouldn’t be surprised a bunch of athletes are rocking these formal shorts looks.
And who knew so many of them could crush the grandma’s-couch florals?
Not that there’s anything wrong with conventional summer suiting worn well. He looks great working all these blues at once.
Possibly our favorite look of the night. Love the graphic shirt with the bold blue and the white kicks. It comes together nicely.
Do we have a problem with a big slab of man in a tiny little suit? Not necessarily, but given the boldness of the textile, a slight bit of breathing room would be helpful here. Also: the footwear’s entirely wrong but you could say that about 75% of these looks.
Trevor Jackson in Sean John
Not surprised an actor took a more conventional approach, but this is kind of half-assed. The boots are all wrong and those pants could’ve used a belt.
