His sleeve pitch sucks. But ed's too harsh on the broad.

Ha! To see the real best dressed man of the AFL, try a google image search for "Warwick Cappa" - the man who put the slim in slim-fit shorts!

I note the linked article's author makes the increasingly common mistake of confusing super numbers with "thread counts." (I just noticed one increasingly prolix pontificator over on Andyland making the same mistake.)

As for the footballer's suit, I thought the worst feature was the ridiculously low rise of the trousers, which evidently was in accordance with his wishes. Looked like holy hell.

Ed, I didn't think the "broad" was bad at all. Back in my lusty prime, I'm sure I would have enjoyed making her bite the pillow!

Can't stand the way the majority of AFL footy players dress. In all fairness, Nathan's suit isn't so bad, however the tie is so 'australian jock metrosexual'. Don't get me started on mainstream Australian fashion...

One of the AFL's best dressed men, Richmond footballer Nathan Brown takes his bespoke suits lean, long and "absolutely classic" says Sarti Tailors' Celia Coate. Styles such as the dark Italian Cantarelli off-the-peg and honey wool two-button single breasted suit with side vents here, are crafted to skim close to his typically muscular chest, thighs and biceps.
What a wonderful way to mislead! Does anyone know what Celia's background is? I've spoken to her in the store and she sounds nice, but I remember reading somewhere that she has no tailoring background but more of a marketing one ...

Funny! I would say the tie...

That's incredibly rude - I'd be interested to see examples of the stunning specimens you've gone out with.

I guess all my suits are "bespoke".
