It should come as no surprise that four out of the five players we chose are based either in New York or Los Angeles.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 07, 2012
Cheap-neckties.com, a well-known purveyor of mens ties, today announced a series of articles to be published focusing on the five best-dressed players in the MLB. The series will highlight MLB players who are well-known for their penchant for dressing well in public and when not on the field. Besides just writing about each player's style, readers will also get some budget-friendly tips on how to add some of these celebrity style pieces into their own wardrobe.
“A lot of people think of the NBA when it comes to athletes that have a penchant for fashion and style,” says Cheap-Neckties.com founder Hendrik Pohl. “That said, players in the MLB are paid exceptionally well, and their fortunes often come through in the way they dress. These guys are wearing Armani, Brioni, and Zegna suits like it’s their job, and pulling it off in ways that a lot of men simply can’t.”
The series consists of five pieces, each of which focuses on a specific player. Among those chosen are Tampa Bay Rays third-baseman Evan Longoria, Los Angeles Dodgers center-fielder Matt Kemp and New York Mets third-baseman David Wright. New York Yankees superstars Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez also made the list.
“It should come as no surprise that four out of the five players we chose are based either in New York or Los Angeles,” says Pohl. “These are two of the biggest fashion cities in America, and living/working in them requires icons like MLB players to step up their looks a bit. There are a lot of other well-dressed players in the MLB, but these five truly do professional baseball the justice it deserves.”
According to Pohl, Cheap-Neckties.com has no intention on slowing down publishing lists on well-dressed athletes. A series to be published in the near future will focus on the best-dressed male golfers in the PGA. In the past, Cheap-Neckties.com has also published pieces on the best-dressed men on Television, as well as a number of articles focusing on other aspects of men’s fashion and style.
“It can be a lot of fun to analyze the style and fashion of well-known athletes,” says Pohl. “These are people that are not required to look good, yet many of them still spend a lot of time and money on fashion and clothing. Many of these players have big egos, which is often visible in their eccentric style and wardrobe choices - something that is often great inspiration for us sartorialists to write about.”
