David Ginola

David Ginola is more than just one of the ten-highest paid soccer players of all time. He is one of the icons when it comes to dressing up. Can we take his being French as one of the reasons why he is naturally fashionable? True to an icon, David has a perfume and a fashion line under his name.

Sir Alf Ramsey

Sir Alf will not talk about style, but he unintentionally became a significant figure when it comes to fashion and sportswear. He has made his well-loved zip-up jacket into the mainstream clothing apparel. Such style is now immortalized by Umbro’s “Ramsey” jacket.

Fashionistas are those who are not afraid to take risk and be themselves. Many soccer players have made their own fashion statement and for Eric, it is the collar. When off the field, Eric looks dashing in timeless tailored suites. Until now, Eric is still a fashion favorite, gracing the covers of many magazines.
