When I saw this side-by-side comparison of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the New York Post, I smiled. I love to see a man in a nice, well-fitted suit and these two gentlemen did not disappoint. They both have their own style, but they both did it just right. One thing that I absolutely cannot stand is when men wear ill-fitted suits. I can't stand jackets that are too long, ties that are too short, pants that are too wide (or pants that have pleats). If you want to know how a suit should look, these are two great examples. Thanks to the New York Post for breaking down their looks:
Suit: Custom two-button, notchlapel, double-vented, heather-brown pinstripe suit from Ermenegildo Zegna, his preferred label, from $3,600
Shirt: A safe-bet standard white dress shirt, $345
Accessories: Brown, white and navy striped tie, also from Zegna, $185; white pocket square as precise as his throwing arm, $90
Shoes: Milanese tanbrown wingtip brogue, also from Zegna, $595
Shirt: Brown, white and gray gingham shirt, also from Tom Ford, is very English, not New England, $495
Accessories: Tom Ford black knit tie with a crease as big as the cleft in his chin, $245; white pocket square, equally disheveled, $145
Shoes: Lace-up oxfords by Tom Ford, with a classic rounded toe to go with the Brit look, $1,290
