Gone are the days when a football manager simply donned the training kit and a club baseball cap (somebody call Tony Pulis). These days you’re more likely to see coaches in slim fit suits with a pocket square in the club’s colours than a tracksuit.
Here at T.M Lewin we love a bit of football but we just can’t help scoring the managers on their sense of style as much as their tactics. As the Football fever continues this summer with the Premier League just around the corner, and the World Cup just gone we thought we’d take a look at the top 5 football managers from around the world that we think would be in with a shout if there was a golden suit for best dressed manager.
5 Sabri Lamouchi – Ivory Coast
A former French international, this man certainly knows how to wear a suit, but we are particularly fond of Lamouchi’s smart casual look. The V-neck pullover combined with a casual shirt gives him a very dapper European style.
4 Volker Finke – Cameroon
3 Fabio Capello – Russia
Say what you will about the former England manager, but one area you simply cannot fault him in is his natural ability to make any Football Association issued suit a statement in style. He’s the man with all the accessories – the cufflinks and even the slim tie.
2 Joachim Löw – Germany
Where do we start with “Jogi”? The German national coach is no stranger to style in all its shapes and sizes. Slim fit suits, cardigans over formal shirts, and tight fitting sweaters have all been seen in the dugout during his stint as the national manager. He’s the man most likely to make good use of colour and he’s the one who’ll be in with all the current trends although he may need some tips on hair styling. In an ordinary world we’d have him as our number one but this is a world with ….
1 Cesare Prandelli – Italy
The quintessential Italian man with his slicked back hair and his perfectly tailored suits and ties has to be our number one. An aficionado of suits for men, Prandelli simply oozes class. Shirts for Prandelli come in one colour – white, and his suits black and occasionally in three pieces. He has one look, but he totally owns it. You won’t get many surprises from the Italian national manager, but what you will get is the sense that somehow the suit was actually invented for Cesare and Cesare alone knows how to wear it.
