    Hi everyone, I watch a lot of sports, and have always wondered who the best dressed/ best groomed athletes were. My vote goes to Alex Rodrigues of the NYY. My second vote goes to Tiger Woods. Females: Anna Kournikova [​IMG]

    I can't think of any athlete that is well dressed in terms of what anyone on this board would consider "well dressed." Besides athletes don't wear clothes well due to their abnormal physiques, so most won't even look good in nice clothes.

    If I had to choose, actually this guy does dress well, is that golfer who is dressed by J. Lindenburg.

    Anyone but Dion Sanders.


    I think that Michael Jordan always seems to look good.

    Maria Sharapova certainly dresses well. (oops, forgot this is a MEN's style forum.)

    Not athletes, but I always take notice of what the ESPN anchors are wearing. I wouldn't say any of them dress well, but some are pretty funny. Harold Reynolds goes from pretty well dressed to absolutely ridiculous. Stewart Scott has a suit he wears that has very angled lapels without notches in them that looks very weird and horrible. He also wears several 4 button suits and I even saw him doing some shot on location where he had a 5 or 6 button suit. Ridiculous.

    Actually, if you watch Real Sports on HBO, Bryant Gumbel, while being not very likeable, dresses quite well in a conservative way. His suits are very nice and fit him very well. Don't know who makes them, but they're nice.

    many pro soccer players are dandies and dress impeccably well. some are professional models as well, including david beckham, paolo maldini, and francesco coco.

    My vote goes to Beckham though I hear Djibril Cisse is a sharp dresser too.

    Thierry Henry dresses well (soccer player). As a whole, I think that hockey or soccer players are the best dressed. That isn't saying much.

    If we are still including sports anchors, I have to add Bob Costas.

    The soccer players do dress the best. Though I would put Freddie Ljungberg ahead of Beckham. Beckham wears sarongs from time to time and is hailed a genius for wearing Sean John sweatsuits with diamond necklaces, as if he's being original.

    I think Tiger, he could wear a rack suit from TJ Maxx and it would probably look good on him, he has a very fit yet trim athletic build, and as my wife says, clothes just fall nice on him.
