In case you haven’t noticed, the World Cup has started. We’re not talking strategic substitutions or tactical tricks. We’re talking style!
The main sartorial focus is on the players with their chiseled bodies, vast wardrobes and designer collaborations. But what about the managers?
Here is the good, the bad and the ugly of World Cup manager style.

Leading his players into fashion battle
Most managers at the tournament are making an effort. Smart black shoes
have been worn by the majority, as have suits. Italy boss, Cesare Prandelli is one such manager, and though he often wears a three piece suit, he does also experiment. It may be hot in Brazil, but you won’t see Cesare dressing down.
Similarity smart is Fabio Capello, who swapped the smooth style of his fellow countryman, for a more domineering look. With a well fitted suit, dark rimmed spectacles and a hard Italian glare, the bespectacled Russia manager often looks like a chap you don’t want to mess with.
Surprisingly, it is a German who favours a more relaxed approach. Joachim Löw, the German manager, is one of the most stylish managers around. Often in a smart casual cardigan, he’s had as much credit for building a team of young superstars as he has for looking good.

Looking “ok” in a suit[/caption] “Big” Phil Scolari, the manager of Brazil, tend to be a bit hit and miss when it comes to style. Sometimes he is in a tracksuit, sometimes he is in a polo shirt, and sometimes he is in a suit. But whatever he is wearing, things just don’t seem to fit right.
A man with similar problems is the manager of the combative Honduras. Luis Fernando Suarez wore a suit as his team lost to France on Sunday. But again, things just didn’t seem to fit. Being so broad in the shoulders could well be the cause.
Top marks for effort, but Luis, sort that jacket out.

If Tony Pulis
was managing a World Cup team, he would undoubtedly be in, but thankfully for him, he isn’t. Instead, we’ve picked Stephen Keshi, the Nigerian boss as the worst dressed manager of the tournament.
The popular manager can often be seen in a green tracksuit. The colour isn’t his fault of course, but it does look a bit like a onesie.
We aren’t saying you need to wear brown brogues and a three piece suit, but we are saying that currently, it’s hard to tell you apart from a fan, such is your attire!
Let’s be honest, if you are a Nigerian you would prefer your manager to worry about how to get the best of his players rather than whether he should wear loafers or not. But it is nice to see that the likes of Löw are flying the flag for menswear – even if he is doing so while managing Germany!
