    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...0/threads1206/ Funny that this is supposedly the best dressed player. Â I guess the clothes could be worse, although I don't understand the ubiquitous NFL look of the super high button stance. Â Seems like a different cut would be more flattering.

    Great photo, now I know the buttoning protocol on a 5 button suit. button the top 4, leave the bottom undone. I will keep that in mind next time I am in the Pimps r us clothing shop.

    My vote for best dressed NFL player is either Tiki Barber or Curtis Martin. Both look great, and seem to really enjoy getting dressed up. I think the fact that they are somewhat normal sized men helps too. a 300 pound offensive lineman is never really going to look all that elegant.

    I'm a Pats fan, but I think I would have to vote for Tom Brady over Seymour's suit. What's up with the square edge of the jacket bottom? What do you call that cut? It looks like a bowling shirt with.

    He outweighs me by 75 pounds so I doubt I'd say it to his face but I think that suit isn't much to speak of. The lapels are bad, it looks like he has four or five buttons on it and square toe shoes are way out. I like the fact that he has a pocket square though.

    Still, the fact that he's not wearing the typical baggy Enyce/Fubu/Sean John/Tommy Hilfiger outfit that every athlete seems to favor is a good thing.

    You didn't read the end topic *Mr. Casual* where he likes Sean John jeans.

    Wow. This is a must read.

    Why is Smith charging only $1800 for his top priced suits, BTW? That's child's stuff. He could easily charge 30% more and still keep his NFL following.

    Oh, I did see that, I just assumed that he usually dresses in suits. Oh well.
