It’s no secret that David Beckham knows how to get dressed. We’re talking about a guy who was unafraid of rocking a sarong in the ‘90s, when most of us were still in cargo shorts. But it’s been a joy to see him out and about in New York this week dressing like the handsome elder statesman of soccer that he’s become. Dude has the range: a polo and slacks for a dressy lunch out. A casual henley and jeans (with some wicked luggage) at the hotel. And a very mellow take on the blazer-and-slacks dinner uniform—baggy pants, T-shirt, white sneaks—for a night on the town. There’s nothing unattainable here—this is just what it looks like when you know exactly how you want to dress. Take notes.
The young gunner is making the style leap! That he’s also making the leap hoopswise and giving LeBron and the Lakers a stiff test in their playoff matchup surely helps in the confidence-to-pull-off-a-baggy-blazer department, too.

…Usher, who rocked this gargantuan fur.
When the going gets tough, the tough get…dressed in Thom Browne shorts. LeBron is breaking out all the tricks against the Suns.
Russ understands the eye-popping power of one bold yellow item.
Tired: Spike Lee in blue and orange.
Wired: Flea in vintage Lakers warmups.
Another week, another glorious, slightly old-fashioned Krasinski shirt.
An exercise in balance: crazy pants offset by a plain white tee…and very sick sandals for the real heads.
