The world's best dressed footballers show you how to wear double-breasted suits with style.

With the Euro 2016 heating up, we thought it apt to take a look at the most stylish footballers of all time.

It's clear that the preffered soccer players' clothing style is one that  overtly signals 'leading men' or 'alpha male'.

From Pelé's sleek suit to Hidetoshi Nakata's overcoat, all of our subjects are fond of the double-breasted closure. Take a look below to learn about the subtleties of this enduring style staple.

 

PELE

Edson Arantes Do Nascimento Pele is one of the most recognisable figures in world football. 

The legend shows, that he clearly has a knack for sartorial style when it comes to double-breasted suits. The sleek DB suit and the Mercedes limousine are beautiful, and they showcase Pelé’s wonderful charisma.

Brunello Cucinelli’s slim, narrow-shaped double-breasted blazer has the same neat silhouette as Pelé’s suit. It is over $4000 cheaper on Sartoriale than the original retail price.   

 

BECKHAM

It is no news, that David Beckham takes fashion seriously.

After years of rapidly and constantly changing his appearance, it seems that finally he has settled for a more classic manner of menswear.

The above outfit is a clear indication of this. The fit is just right, the accessories are on the restrained side, while the classic blazer buttons give just the right amount of exuberance to the whole look.

NAKATA

Hidetoshi Nakata was Japan’s most valuable football export.

After retiring he choosed to represent Japan’s most underrated exports to the world: personal style. He became one of those athletes, who became more famous after his sports career.

His smile on the picture shows that he revels in the attention that stylish menswear brings. His self confidence surely stems from the exquisite double breasted coat he is wearing.

PIRLO

Andrea Pirlo is renowned for his artistry and grace on a football field and for being suave and sophisticated in his down time.

For a man who owns his own vineyard, he seems just as approachable as any Italian sartorialist at Pitti Uomo.

Nonetheless, this combination of a tweed DB and denim shirt is as modern as it can get. Casual, yet put together with care, this is the epitome of an Italian menswear sophisticate.

This plaid double breasted jacket from Sartoria Chiaia captures the playful, yet stylish look of Pirlo.
