Friday Fashion Face-off: Australian Open Best-Dressed Man

Yup, I know. It’s Sunday, not Friday. Not only that, but this Best-Dressed Man post should have run nine days ago, not two. What can I say? Disorganization is part of my overall charm.

So without further ado, let’s get to our nominees… Continue reading “Friday Fashion Face-off: Australian Open Best-Dressed Man”

Friday Fashion Face-off: Adidas Adidas and Cult Jam

(🎶 Hit the beat, now…🎶)

Did you catch the Zverev brothers play last week at the Citi Open in Washington, D.C.?

Alexander (familiarly known as Sascha) is the groundstroke-whipping baseliner. He’s widely regarded as the successor to the top of the game when the Big Four finally retire.

Tennis players still wear those socks, of course, minus the pompoms. But every so often you see someone in knee socks. Bethanie Mattek-Sands was the first player I ever saw in knee-high legwear, often in combination with pink hair and eye black. Bethanie wears compression socks, but based on the photo below, I’m guessing she’d wear wacky knee socks even without a medical reason. Continue reading “Friday Fashion Face-off: The Sock Edition”
