While the NFL Draft offers fans much excitement, it doesn't offer them much fashion advice.
As the decades have passed by, so too have the fashion trends. Many young, soon-to-be millionaire football players have followed those trends a little too closely (lot of wide lapels in the 1990's).
So, let's take a quick trip down memory lane and check out some of the worst suits seen on the stage of Radio City Music Hall.
Oh Ben, how we should've known.
The gelled crop-top. The five-button suit. The thick pinstripes that look like a Walmart mafia costume.
All signs that pointed directly to Milledgeville, Georgia.
Much like his career, David Carr's suit on draft day was pretty bland.
While there is nothing egregiously wrong with this suit, I've always had a problem with the same color suit/tie combination.
The tie's purpose is to add some variance in color, to excite the eye. "Tan," most certainly, doesn't do that.
Ryan Leaf's big mistake here (besides being a clown), is wearing the "Deal" shirt on draft day. Big mistake.
For anyone who has read Michael Lewis' "Liar's Poker," a book about the author's time as a mortgage bondsman at Lehman brothers in the 1980s, knows that only those who are established in the business can wear the french collared shirt.
Leaf wore the "Deal" shirt before he had played a down in the NFL, a dead giveaway of his huge ego and poor discipline.
I've never been a huge fan of the three-piece suit, and I don't think it works in this situation.
Unless you have a classic British tailor, and like to wear tweed, avoid the three-piece on draft day.
And Michael, that 1960s-esque tie...yeesh!
Really can't get on board with JaMarcus' all black look. He looks like a jazz club waiter or strip club bouncer (not that I would know about either).
The black on black on black was apparently a fashion trend in the mid to late 2000s. As my father always said, "The trends are for woman. The classics are for men."
Reggie's suit is entitled, "Meditations in poo."
Every shade of brown and off-brown is represented in this dapper gett-up. Factor in the enormous lapels and collar, and you have yourself a Grade-A disaster.
No wonder Kim left you for a European.
I can only hope that this look was in fashion in Spring 2001.
Really not sure what you call that jacket. It's not quite a blazer, but not quite a shirt.
Regardless, it has way too many buttons and a bizarre collar that leaves its classification pretty ambiguous.
Ambiguity is not a good thing, LaDainian.
Fitting that Akili Smith looks like he's at a funeral on draft day 1999.
I can't go in to too many specifics about this suit as I can't entirely decipher what's going on.
A lot of buttons and a wide short collar has Akili looking like a 19th century bellhop.
Definitely should've taken some style tips from his old man. There is a man who knows how to wear a suit!
