David Beckham at London Premiere of Class of '92


The Class of '92 is a British movie highlighting the rise of 6 young Manchester United footballers, David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Gigs, Gary and Phil Neville and Paul Scholes. The documentary is not only about how 6 lads became friends on and off the pitch, but also how they became champions while the city of Manchester and the country was evolving.

The London premiere for the movie was held in December and David Beckham attended the event with his family. He looked very stylish dressed in a Ralph Lauren Black Label 'Anthony' smart suit in black, Ralph Lauren Black Label white shirt, Polo Ralph Lauren Madison tie vintage clubs in black and Polo Ralph Lauren pocket square in white. How do you wear a suit like David Beckham? Well, the devil is in the details and the fit. The blazer should contour the body, showing no signs of pulls or creases and most importantly the blazer should fall just over your hips!. The jacket sleeves hit at just the right place, showing off less than an inch of his shirt, and he's perfectly places the tie bar at just the right spot, in between his top blazer button and collar.

David Beckham in Aurel Schmidt for Opening Ceremony

How do you wear a t-shirt like David Beckham? With a paid of Dior Homme Distressed Corduroy jeans. In the first picture, he paired his Aurel Schmidt with a beanie from Burton and in the second picture with a DQM Trucker hat while carrying a backpack from Burberry.
If you ever want to look stylish in a t-shirt, make sure the t-shirt has some history to it. Aurel Schmidt is an artist that makes detailed drawings of surreal figures by combining  tiny illustrations of flies, insects, condoms, cigarette butts and other detritus to create the larger image. Her collaboration with Opening Ceremony was all about a collection of lettered graphics, culminating in an 11-shirt release (one for each letter of Opening Ceremony). Each shirt references many everyday elements from donuts and toothpaste to bacon, lighters and cigarette butts. The graphics are printed on custom vintage t-shirts with distressed qualities. You can read more about her collaboration with Opening Ceremony here. To learn more about visit her website Aurel Schmidt.

David Beckham in Maison Martin Margiela (Miami)


What does a famous footballer wear, while his out in Miami scouting locations for a football specific stadium for his new MLS team? Maison Martin Margiela sweatshirt over a RRL black t-shirt, while trading in his staple beanie or newsboy cap for a Burton Rufio hat paired with a pair of Saint Laurent Raw denim by Hedi Slimane.

If you haven't heard David Beckham is in negotiations to start his own MLS franchise, rumored to be in Miami, where he has been seen scouting locations for a potential football specific stadium and meeting with local politicians and business leaders. It was recently announced by MLS President Don Garber, that they would make an "announcement" in February.

Now back to fashion. If you would like to purchase any of the things he's wearing in this picture, I have some bad news... you won't be able to. The Burton Rufio Hat in Keef has been sold out everywhere, since he's been pictured in it. The Maison Martin Margiela Elbow Patch Loopback Cotton-Jersey Sweatshirt is from last season and is also unavailable in the "olive green" colour, but you can get it in Red, Black, or Grey by clicking here on sale at Mr. Porter for $247.50. As for as the Saint Laurent denim, that is also from last season and very hard to find, however there is a similar one available from their permanent collection on the YSL website.

H&M x David Beckham Bodywear Paris Launch


After winning the league title with Paris Saint-Germain and retiring from football, David Beckham went straight to work promoting his bodywear line with H&M. While in Paris, he held a meet and greet event to launch his H&M Bodywear Collection. Lucky fans got the chance to not only meet David, but also received autographed goods.

To commorate this event, David wore a Breitling Transocean Chronograph Red Gold Limited Edition Watch along with a H&M x David Beckham Spring 2013 red Henley shirt, and a pair of matching red Adidas sneakers (not pictured).
In July of 2011 David Beckham and H&M announced their collaboration for David’s bodywear line, which features t-shirts, vests, Henleys, pajamas and long johns. Due to Beckham’s success with his menswear line, H&M and Beckham will be releasing a bodywear line for children. Rumor has it, that they have purchased a 30 second commercial spot at this year's Super Bowl, in which viewers will be able to purchase the range directly from their TVs.

Personally, I love his line as it is extremely comfortable and the fit is amazing.

You can purchase David Beckham's H&M line by visiting the H&M Website.

You can also watch some behind the scenes promotional videos on YouTube featuring David Beckham.

David Beckham in Ralph Lauren Black Label Suit

David Beckham in Ralph Lauren. David Beckham was on The Jonathan Ross Show in December discussing life after retiring from playing professional football. Of many things, he talks about how he had to referee his son Romeo's football match, which led to Romeo in tears because his father gave him a penalty. You can catch the entire interview on YouTube.

Now, back to his fashion sense. You can see him here in a Ralph Lauren Black Label charcoal two-button ‘Anthony’ suit, Ralph Lauren Purple Label dress shirt and a Polo Ralph Lauren linen pocket square.

You can purchase the Suit from the Ralph Lauren Website.

If you do decide to buy this very slim fitting smart suit which is a two-button front and a double vented back, I would recommend going one size higher than what you normally wear. For instance, if you normally wear a 38, buy a 40 as Black Label suits are tailored to have a European cut and thus has a very slim fit, especially post 2012.

Here's an article on Ralph Lauren Black Label suits by

David Beckham in Saint Laurent Denim & Boots

David Beckham pictured here at his book signing event held at the Piccadilly branch of Waterstones in West London on December 19th 2013. He attended the event in a pair of Saint Laurent 16CM Skinny Dirty Used Wash Black Jeans with Saint Laurent Suede Chelsea Boots in chocolate. It seems as though he's wearing a lot of Saint Laurent at the moment, probably due to the fashion house bringing Hedi Slimane back.

A Little Bit About Hedi Slimane

Hedi Slimane started his fashion career at YSL in the early 1990s. After the Black Tie collection, which foreshadowed the advent of Slimane's silhouette, and the debuts of "skinny", he chose to leave YSL and accepted the position of creative director for menswear at Christian Dior where he stayed till 2007. After taking a few years off, he came back to Saint Laurent as creative director in 2011.

I wish I knew where the jumper was from, but I don't. If anyone out there knows, please do share...
