Those involved in professional sports will often find themselves in the limelight, and consequently many of them have become role models for people to look up to. Some people go as far as to try and replicate their personal style, such as copying the hairstyles and clothing styles of popular players including David Beckham and Neymar Jr. Many of the more recognizable faces in the professional sporting world endorse all kinds of clothing lines and beauty products, and they also have the cash to be able to buy high quality, designer wear to impress those watching at home.
Just like in the real world, there are of course many people in the world of professional sports that have either a terrible taste in fashion or simply no taste at all. Their love for being the centre of attention may get the better of them when getting dressed each morning with some loud, garish outfit, they may wear oversized clothing that makes it look like they are wearing their older siblings' hand me downs, or a few of them look like their parents still dress them despite being multi-millionaires and fully grown adults.
It is not just players in professional sports that sometimes have a questionable taste in clothes; it is also the coaches/managers and former players turned pundits. You will notice some coaches or managers patrol the sidelines in a sharp suit and always look well presented, whilst others seem to only be able to focus on the game and you will often see coaches that look sleep deprived wearing awful oversized tracksuits or team jumpers stained with coffee.
Success seems to have no direct impact on how well a person dresses. As this list demonstrates, some of the best athletes in the world can master their sport but struggle to get dressed properly each morning.
Here are the 15 worst dressed people in professional sports.
15 Tony Pulis
14 Brent Burns
13 Tim Duncan
12 Deion Sanders
11 Andy Reid
10 Alex Song
9 Michael Jordan
8 Paul George
7 Bill Belichick
6 Lionel Messi
5 Cristiano Ronaldo
4 Russell Westbrook
3 Ryan Lochte
2 John Daly
Golf is traditionally a sport where you are supposed to dress relatively smartly and most courses have a dress code, but Daly is not one to conform to the typically golfer appearance. Even if it is part of his character and now a sportswear company, John Daly’s line of flamboyant trousers are the kind of clothes you wear on a lazy Sunday round the house, not on a golf course. These trousers come in all kinds of brash designs, including dollar bills, zebra stripes, polka dots, the U.S. flag just to name a few; not what you would expect to find on a pair of trousers. Daly became an endorser for Loudmouth Golf in 2009, and now they have become hugely popular around the world with a number of celebrity fans too.
1 Don Cherry
Former player, coach and now commentator, Don Cherry is one of the more recognizable faces in the ice hockey world. He is famous for his “tell it like it is” character, and this is matched by his incredibly bold, garish suits which seem to polarize fans. His wardrobe contains loud items such as a bright pink, floral suit, a tartan suit with a striped shirt, blue silk suits and a white, pin-striped double breasted suit. These and his other bizarre outfits are like the sun, in that you can't look directly at them for too long or they will begin to hurt your eyes. It is a bold and unique sense of style that Cherry has, but it certainly makes for entertaining television.
