Fashion & Football Style
Style Cartel also wants to get in the game with documenting the style of fashionable football players. Actually most of our top post are about when we talk about athletes and their fashion sense. We agree with Sports Illustrated for nameing him one of the world’s stylish althelets, because he earned it. He wants to teach kids like him that it is not wear, or where you come from, that dictates your personal style.
If you follow the mens wear fashion week circuit you must know this face. When he is not on the field he is, also invited to some of the biggest designer shows on the calendar. He shows grown men how to wear ripped jeans the dapper way.
Until now he is still low-key when he hits the streets after a fashion show here in Paris. Nevertheless, he is sometimes missed on the street after a show. Although he might do the latest dance when he makes a great play on the field.
Let’s say you’re going shopping and you see something that you really think is cool, what do you say? HB
My favorite line is “Yo, this is crazy.” That’s kind of my line. So if I see something in the window or in a store I say “Yo, this sweater is crazy!” — Victor Cruz
We have a special relationship/crush on the American footballer and why we choose him to launch Fashion and Football men’s style stories. After meeting him after a show and partying with him in Paris. We found this fashionable footballer, an easy-going lady killer to chat to. We normally run into him in Paris waiting for a Uber to get to the next show or after party.
“Fashion is what you make of it—if you’re comfortable in it and you own it, there’s no box you can put it in. That’s the beauty of fashion. Football gave me a platform to show the world how I dress. Even on the field, I make sure I’m always cleaned up, my jersey’s never un-tucked, my socks are always pulled up and my spikes always look well-kept, neat and new.” — Victor Cruz
