David Beckham Playing Football in RRL Cords


David Beckham while on his mission to the Philiphines to raise awareness for the victims of Typhoon Haiyanwas pictured playing football with little kids. Even in a Burton hat, UNICEF T-shirt and a pair of RRL Cords the kids of Tacloban were ready to take on the former Manchester United star at the game he's been playing since he himself was a child.

I wonder if David will be giving these kids soccer tips!

Two Ways To Wear Moncler

David Beckham was spotted walking in his upscale new London neighborhood of West London after moving from Los Angeles last year. In the picture above he is seen wearing the blue Moncler Baumier jacket, over a grey Moncler Gerard vest and Lanvin chinos in navy blue. He finished the look with the Adidas Originals Basket Profi sneakers and his trademark beanie.

A few days later, he was spotted looking like the Dapper British Gentleman that he is, wearing the same Moncler Baumier jacket under a Pale Gun Metal Blue velvet blazer by Burberry and Lanvin chinos in mustard. For this look, he put away his beanie opting for a flat cap instead!
Wear It Like Beckham: Two distinct and unique ways to wear the Moncler Baumier jacket that David pulled of so effortlessly. The first look, David wore the Baumier jacket in what I call the "Classic" street style look! The second look, he added his own Beckham twist and sense of style by wearing it under a blazer... something that I would have never thought of to put together, but nonetheless love both inspiring looks.

David Beckham arrives in Philippine (UNICEF)

David loves doing charity work around the world! As a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, David made a trip to the visit the victims of super Typhoon Haiyan, which struck on November 8, killing more than 6,200 people and leaving tens of thousands of survivors still homeless. David made the trip in his favorite RRL t-shirt, Saint Laurent denim and Burton Tinder Pack. Once he arrived, he changed his RRL t-shirt for a UNICEF t-shirt, while he spent the days meeting and greeting the people of Tacloban.


David has been seen traveling with the Burton Tinder Pack before, as the pack has a vintage feel to it and David loves all things vintage!

David attend's Victoria's NYFW Show in a Spezzato Look

David Beckham at NYFW 2014
David attends his wife's Victoria's NYFW show with Harper as his lovely date. Mrs. Beckham always ensures that both husband and daughter gets front row seats to her sold out show, they always head to the very chic eatery Balthazar afterwards and David's always in a spezzato look. What's a spezzato look?  This is a very popular look among Italians and is Italian for "broken in two." Quite simply, it describes a combination of jacket and trousers that's not a matching suit. This year David completed his spezzato look in a Ralph Lauren Black Label navy blazer with a pair of Purple Label grey trousers by the same designer.

Wear it like Beckham: If you want to try Spezzato look, remember one simple rule let one piece take the lead or in Beckham's case, let the blazer and trouser compliment each other or let the blazer take the lead!

David Beckham walks around NYC in Canada Goose Foxe Bomber Jacket

MBFW 2014 is in full swing!!! and Victoria has closed yet another successful show giving David and the kids some down time to take in some of New York's finest landmarks. The Official Instagram Page for The Empire State Building posted a picture of him wearing a Canada Goose Foxe Bomber jacket. Although, the jacket comes in a variety of colours, David has only been pictured wearing it in military green. It seems as though military green is David's favorite colour and the "in" colour among designers for their spring collection.

A Little Bit About the Jacket
Canada Goose was inspired by the classic bombers worn by Canadian bush pilots, the Foxe offers classic styling combined with contemporary details such as a removable sherling collar and leather trim. It is the standard of warmth and mobility desired by modern pilots.

You can purchase the jacket by visiting the Canada Goose Website.

Wear It Like Beckham: Pair the bomber with a pair of slim fitting chinos, Adidas sneakers and a flat cap... keeping the look simple and casual yet cool and hip.

David Beckham in Comme des Garçons

David Beckham was awarded the role as China's first global football ambassador for its football league. He has happily taken the position, as he wants to improve the game's image in China and around the world. As part of his role, we will see him observe games and attend charitable events. One of the first charitable event that he attended, was a visit to a children's hospital in China to uplift the spirits of the children being treated there. For this event, David decided to put away his vast collection of smart suits and go to the event wearing a casual plaid shirt by Comme des Garçons from their Homme Plus line.

A Little Bit About Comme des Garçons
Comme des Garcon is French for "like the boys" and is a Japanese fashion label headed by Rei Kawakubo. If you would like to buy anything from this label, then good luck! They only have one store in the US (NYC), 2 stores in Europe (one in Paris and one in London) and a few stores in East Asia (Hong Kong, Beijing, Bangkok, Seoul, Singapore and Manila). On a recent visit to Paris, it took me 2 days to actually find the Paris store, as it turned out I walked by the store a few times before I actually figured out which door was the entrance.

David Beckham wears Louis Vuitton Smart Suit to The Jimmy Fallon Show

David Beckham was recently on The Jimmy Fallon Show to promote his latest spring bodywear line with H&M. On the show, the comedian, challenged David to a game of Egg Russian Roulette... David lost! If losing wasn't enough, David got yoke all over his head and shirt, but somehow managed to keep his Louis Vuitton peaked-lapel midnight-blue smart suit clean... phew!

Wearing a Louis Vuitton suit is a different direction for David, who off late has been pictured wearing either Burberry or Ralph Lauren to many events. I personally like how he chooses to wear a Burberry or a Ralph Lauren suit to more formal events, as both of those designers suits are elegant and sophisticated. However, he choose to wear a fashionably tailored suit to a more light hearted affair like The Jimmy Fallon Show.

Wear It Like Beckham: Shoulder joints on the jacket should end right at the tip of your shoulder, the arm hole should feel snug at the armpit and when the blazer is buttoned, you should have a well defined waistline. If you don't have these, then either the suit is too big or too small and you should NEVER get a suit hoping that you will grow into it... NEVER!

David Beckham announces Miami MLS Team

David Beckham is attending events throughout South Florida around Wednesday's press conference with Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber, where he's expected to make an announcement about the future of a team in Miami.
 Tuesday Night at the Adrienne Arsht Center

On Tuesday night he attended a private invite-only reception at Adrienne Arsht Center. When asked by reporters to comment on his MLS team, he would only say, “I’m going to answer all those questions tomorrow. I think everyone will be very happy with tomorrow, hopefully, and it’s an exciting time for myself, an exciting time to be welcomed into a city like this, so yeah, tomorrow’s going to be a good day.”

On Wednesday, at the Perez Art Museum, as expected the former LA Galaxy, Real Madrid and Manchester United player exercised his option to become an owner of a new MLS franchise in Miami ending months of speculation.

Wednesday Press Conference at Perez Art Museum

To mark the transition from player to club owner, Beckham opted for a more executive look for both events. Tuesday for the more formal event, he wore a black Ralph Lauren Black Label 'Anthony' suit with a white Aston shirt by the same fashion label and on Wednesday he went to is British roots and wore a Burberry suit in grey.

Ralph Lauren is an all American designer, who started his life in fashion working for Brook Brothers as a sales associate and eventually left to become a salesman for a tie company. In 1966, when he was 26, he was inspired to design a wide, European-style necktie, but the idea was rejected by the company he worked for. He left to establish his own company selling the ties he made to small shops in New York.

David Beckham in Louis Vuitton and Ray Ban (Miami)

David Beckhan was spotted leaving his hotel in Miami, where he is in town getting ready to make a major announcement regarding his Miami MLS expansion team, rumored to be named Miami United Football Club. While in Miami, David opted for a vintage look dressed in a  pair of Louis Vuitton dress slacks, lavender shirt (designer unknown) and a pair of Ray Ban Clubmaster sunglasses.

If you look really close at the picture, you will see that David is sporting a metal band on each of his arms, which is known as sleeve garters. Sleeve garters is a fashion accessory from the latter half of the 19th century that allowed men to customize their sleeve lengths. It was popular among bartenders, musicians, bookies and well dressed gunslingers from the Old West. Today you will find your local blackjack dealers in Las Vegas wearing them for aesthetic purposes as well as to make it difficult for them to conceal a card in their sleeves.

David Beckham at NYC H&M Bodywear Launch


David Beckham was all smiles at the New York City launch for his Spring 2014 Bodywear line. To promote the new line, David held a meet and greet for the first 200 people to arrive at the Times Square H&M flagship store. In the past David attended such events in is own bodywear line, but with much of the east coast under an arctic blast, he opted to attend the event in a bright Alexander McQueen Cashmere Crew Neck Sweater and his favorite double breasted Saint Laurent Officier Coat by Hedi Slimane. David has been pictured wearing the Saint Laurent coat at nearly every event that he has attended over the past few months. I previously thought this coat was sold out, however Barney's New York is now carrying it and can be purchased for $3,590.
