Man of the Hour: David Beckham
And it just so happens that Beckham’s sporting one of the better mixes of high and low style we’ve seen in quite some time. The jumper-and-jeans getup is practically a uniform for most European stadium games, but look closer and you’ll see a spread-collar dress shirt and (wonder of wonders) an actual tie under there. He even rolled up his sleeves to let the wide cuffs show. Granted, his taste in formalwear tends a little towards the banker-y, but if the world’s chavs start taking notes on this outfit, we could be in for a very interesting few months.
