David Beckham is not only a sports superstar with one of the highest recognition ratings in the world, but also a kind of style chameleon. Fortunately, however, his fashion faux pas – we remember cornrows, cargo pants, durag scarves and undershirts – are long behind him. Today, the Englishman is considered one of the most stylish men in the world, whether in comfortable athleisure style, finding his inner rock star in skinny jeans by Saint Laurent or classically elegant in a three-piece suit by Louis Vuitton.
It helps, of course, to be married to Victoria Beckham, who now rules the catwalk with her eponymous fashion brand after conquering the world as a Spice Girl. But David Beckham is not losing his touch and is now a permanent fixture at Fashion Week himself as a business partner of Kent & Curwen. The revived traditional British men’s outfitter presents at the men’s section of London Fashion Week. To mark his birthday, we’ve put together a best-of of his indomitable casual style.
