David Beckham Candids: His Swagger Goes So Hard

One of Urban Gentleman’s favorites is David Beckham… this guy basically does no wrong. He’s hot when he’s dressed up and down… check out a few of his pics from the past month or so:

restaurants, J. Sheekey’s in Covent Garden.

I love when people correctly combine color combinations that are seen as taboo: black/brown, black/navy, etc. David wear’s this striped navy-on-navy number so well. And the black skinny tie, pocket square, and shoes enhances the look. The black helps the navy to stand out more, even though I love navy and red combos- it’s nice to just let navy be navy sometimes.

David knows how to rock casual wear in the most manly way. Though trend forecasters and fashion experts are saying that the “manly man” look is out and the “feminine man” look is in, I say it’s bullsh*t. Looking burly and masculine will always be haute:-)

As you can see plaid is where it’s at. Have you bought your plaid shirt yet? Check out my latest articles on plaids here.

I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying until it’s ingrained in your minds: Wearing opposite, yet complementary tie, shirt, and suit patterns is a must (you don’t have to always do it, but if you’re a truly stylish person you need to do it atleast every 3 or 4 times you wear a suit. ) I’m really feeling the gingham tie.

Isn’t his swagger hard? It just goes sooo hard. When I see suits like this it really reminds me of my brothers back in the day. Their striped 3 piece suits would always get so many compliments- and when it came to Easter, lol, well you know how it goes down in the south. My brothers were both well known for their flawless style and to be honest I feel like they play a big role in my love of fashion (orchestra music plays in the background)… Okay, lol- back to Beckham.

This guy loves to wear striped suits that aren’t just basic- and to many people multi-colored striped suits have always been seen as a “black” thing- yanno? Because these kinds of suits are the ones you see men like Steve Harvey rocking. And for that reason, many men stray away from the multi-colored striped suits so that they don’t fill the stereotype. But what you must realize is that English men rock these kind of suits all the time, the difference is in the fit. They wear their suits much closer to the body and that gives them a more polished, well-groomed look. And that’s what you should do. Quality solid suits are always best, but having a few multi striped in the wardrobe is great. Just be careful not to wear them so big- then you end up looking like a southern preacher- which is fine if that’s what you want… I guess.

You can take away many things from these pictures:

1.) Club collars are haute. Club collars are really growing on me, I think they are my second favorite now to the cut-away collar. These collars really look great on men with athletic builds -epecially ones with big necks and heads:-)

2.) You must learn how to match without matching. Go into a store and just try out out different shirt and tie combinations… you don’t have to try it on- just put the tie on the shirt and see what you think. If you live in Atlanta, go visit a guy named Peter at Nordstrom in Buckhead– he has some of the sickest combos… and I learned from him:-)

3.) Tuck one shirt tail in and one shirt tail out. I mean really, I challenge you to try it out one day… then send me your pictures and we’ll have a contest or something to see “who wore it best, lol. I think this trend should always be worn with jeans and a thick brown belt… maybe a matte black belt will work as well.

4.) Go buy a plaid shirt.

5.) Brown is a masculine man’s best friend. David Beckham loves brown- brown is his black, and I love it. He always wears a brown belt and brown shoes (with a few exceptions). And I feel like that gives him a more rugged masculine look, and it adds to his swagger.

FYI: Some of you may be asking yourself “So what brand suits does David Beckham wear?”. Hugo Boss, Armani, Dolce & Gabanna, and I could speculate other brands, but I won’t at this time:-)

David Beckham: English Perfection

Beckham won Best MLS Player at the 2008 Espy Awards
last month. His attire was impeccable.
If I had to define Best Dressed I would define it as: what one becomes when he wears the attire of persons such as David Beckham. Then I would have a picture of Beckham next to it. . . seriously though he is ALWAYS on my best-dressed list and has yet to disappoint. He never under or over dresses, never tries too hard, or looks too casual- he dresses for perfection wherever he goes. And he is the PERFECT person to mimic if you want to have flawless style.

David Beckham is a total package, he combines athletic w/ suave w/sexy w/masculine w/urban w/cool w/prep w/tailored w/modern w/classic with everything fly to make a look that men crave to one day have. And he creates trends that would otherwise seem corny… including his “one shirt tail in one shirt tail out” look:

he won Choice Male Athlete

One thing to note about Beckham is that he always wears a quality brown leather belt- always… never black or tan, but brown- which I feel is so classic. To get the David Beckham look you must combine:

button down shirt + cardigan + relaxed fit jeans + brown leather belt + beaded bracelets= David Beckham’s Style.

You can easily imitate him by shopping at Express, they’ll have everything from the shirt to the optional tie. And most importantly Express will have the jeans that are a major part of the look.

His serious style and swagger has recently landed him on yet another “Best-Dressed” List, this time- Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed List. Check out his short interview in the magazine:

David Beckham
Residence: Los Angeles.
Occupation: Midfielder, Los Angeles Galaxy.
Age: 33.
Style icon: Steve McQueen.
Favorite clothing purchase of 2008: “There is still time in 2008, so ask me next year.”
Tailor: Armani.
Most frequently worn items: “Due to the L.A. weather, it has to be a simple pair of shorts and top, at the moment.”
Favorite sunglasses: “My wife’s range of dVb aviators.”
Causes: “Victoria and I have the David and Victoria Beckham Children’s Charity, about which I am very passionate. I am also a goodwill ambassador for unicef.”

David is also in this month’s Men’s Health:




Extracts from his interview:

On his comfort zone: “There is this madness around me, around my family. Without a doubt, out on the field is where I’m most comfortable, where I’m happiest, because I know what I’m doing, and I know I can do it.”

On losing: “I’m a really bad loser. It stays with me for a while. I always take it quite personally when we don’t win as a team or I don’t win in everything else I do.”

On relaxing: “People always ask me, ‘Do you play golf?’ Because a majority of sportsmen do. I used to play, quite a few years ago, but to be honest, I’d rather spend four hours with the kids than four hours on a golf course. As much as it can be relaxing, it’s a frustrating sport. My way of relaxing is listening to music and spending time with the kids.”

What another player said to him when he was 13 years old: “You’ll never play for England, because you’re too small and not strong enough.”
