FEATURE: What Is Wrong With This Picture? (7/18/07)

Today we’ve starting a new feature, What Is Wrong With This Picture?, devoted to critiquing the despicable, ugly or dated getups of the stars. This first edition is devoted to those of the paparazzi – we couldn’t make this happen with your blatant disregard for basic human dignity. Gramercy.

This Week’s Fuck-Up: David Beckham

david beckham2 mens fashion

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people applaud Dave’s style and grooming. “Wow, what a handsome and well dressed man!”; “What a hunk, and good taste to boot!”; etc. etc. ad nauseam. I admit, the fucker is quite handsome and well-groomed, especially for an athlete – but he certainly isn’t the god-sent of fashion. This picture proves that.

First, the top. I don’t know about you, but I don’t find shit that’s modeled after the Master’s outfit the least bit appealing. It kind of looks like a Militiaman’s coat except this has an ugly ass belt and the extra element of retardation that comes from it having an off-centered collar.

Next, the jeans. What a ratty, excessively wrinkled pair of ugly ass jeans. Iron anyone?

And finally, the shoes. I can’t make out what type they are – maybe sandals?, maybe loafers? – but whatever they are their color reminds me of vomit. I wonder if I can get my pair of Algonquins in putrid green??

David, please burn this outfit but somehow make sure the fumes don’t poison the atmosphere.

Thanks,

CE.

    Lol well put but a mile off the mark.

    The top is awful, yeah, but the jeans are more than likely $180 Diesel Zatiny jeans, a relaxed regular slim fit, boot cut jean that’s in fashion at the moment, so the creases are supposed to be there.
    Oh, the shoes are probably Frye boots, vintage leather. They retail around the $300 area.

    Most people in the fashion industry will tell you that the loose jeans and boots look is seriously popular, so you should do some research before slating someone else’s clothes. Or at least state that it’s your opinion and is thus subject to different tastes.

    fuk off man,that jacket other than the belt aint that bad,the jeans r supposed to be like that,wrinkled n casual….they are made in a way like that so that they look wrinkly.
    i think u dont noe a lot abt branded prps jeans…u shud chek them out n then comment saying that according to ur choice they arent upto the mark.
    lastly the boots r leather boots n u can wear them with anything except a suit….
