Kempt Man of the Hour: David Beckham
Here we have the latest convert to the cult of Tom Ford, – the fellow affectionately known the world over as “Becks”. Mr. Beckham obviously did some research into what the well-dressed MOTH is wearing, and wisely opted to adorn himself likewise. At a fragrance launch the other day he sported a three-piece, single-breasted, peak lapel sand and ochre stripe, silk and wool homespun check “Buckingham” model suit with a ticket pocket, white shirt, brown silk tie and brown calfskin wingtips all from Mr. Ford’s atelier.
We’d say he needed the killer threads just to compete with his wife’s S&M boots. While here in New York, the famed couple also found time to visit the Waverly Inn, for which he of course needed another Ford three-piece, this time a pink and grey Prince of Wales plaid sharkskin number, which looked equally natty. And since he’s got a five-year deal with the L.A. Galaxy worth $250 million, we expect him to dress this well from now on.
