Most athletes today are pretty damn good dressers. Case in point: Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and James Harden. The 2019 NFL Draft, held in Nashville, Tennessee, is no exception when it comes to finely outfitted athletes. From warm-colored suits to bow-ties, pinstripes, and plaids, these guys know how to work the dandy look on one of the most important days of their lives.

Here are The Manual’s picks for best dressed players from the NFl Draft (so far).

The Best Dressed Players of the 2019 NFL Draft

A single button suit in a plum color, paired with a deep purple tie and offset by a light blue shirt and matching pocket square combine to create a bold, but classically styled outfit for new Carolina Panthers linebacker Brian Burns.

D.K. Metcalf went straight to the navy blue with accenting white pinstripe on a double-breasted suit with white buttons for his NFL Draft red-carpet look. Pairing it with brown shoes and a pale pink tie was a subtle style swerve we commend.

Greedy Williams

Cornerback Greedy Williams went for a bright red look accented by pure white, thick-soled shoes and matching shirt. Contrasting the bright red, Williams wore a subdued gold bow tie with matching pocket square, and perfectly-sized, large gold watch.

Jonah Williams

The Cincinnati Bengals’ newest offensive tackle, Jonah Williams wore his size well in this dashing blue single-breasted number with brown kicks and pale blue tie.

Kyler Murray

Heisman Trophy-winner and fresh member of the Arizona Cardinals, Kyler Murray walked the Draft red-carpet in a pink pinstriped number and striped tie. Murray proves that with enough confidence, you can wear anything without worry.

Marquise Brown

The Baltimore Ravens snatched up Marquise “Hollywood” Brown in the first round of the draft and, if we were drafting only on style stats here, we’d have snapped him up, too. The subdued, tie-less jacket and pants look, paired with velvet loafers and offset by some massive neck and hand bling, is quintessential contemporary footballer chic and we’re loving every detail of it.

Noah Fant

The Denver Broncos welcomed Noah Fant to the team as tight end and he walked the red-carpet looking tight himself in this all-gray, lightly patterned number paired with dark loafers and a burgundy bow-tie.

Not Players: Tim McGraw & Nephews

While none of these three will probably ever find themselves playing quarterback on the gridiron, Tim McGraw and his nephews certainly blended in with the NFL draftees with their gray and charcoal suit ensembles, including McGraw’s signature cowboy hat.

Reasons you should rock this unfairly maligned piece of swimwear
Man getting out of pool

The warm weather is here, and summer is almost in full swing. Along with the sun beating down on you and the hot weather comes the inevitable trip to the beach or pool to take a cool dip and find a little reprieve from the sweltering heat. Of course, there are dozens of swim trunks for you to choose from now that beach season is upon us, but there is one that you should consider — the Speedo.

I know what you're thinking; Speedos are tiny, intimidating, and leave very little to the imagination. But here are some reasons that you should rethink wearing one of these fantastic suits. After all, you work really hard in the gym all winter -- show it off.
They're flattering
What is the point of working on yourself and taking care of your body if you can't show it off? Well, besides the obvious health benefits, we mean. But if you've been putting in the work to not only feel good but to look good too, why cover up all that effort?

Like peanut butter and jelly, most things come in pairs, but what about threes? It's a short list, with the likes of The Three Little Pigs, and the Three Musketeers, but not much else. Audemars Piguet clearly wants to change this as they've recently introduced a trio of Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked models.
Audemars Piguet: Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked models

The brand previously introduced a 37mm edition as well as several other 41mm models, and now their newest drop features 41mm models in steel, black ceramic, and 18K yellow gold, all with highly contrasted dials. They feature twin balance wheels, as the name would suggest, not only for precise timekeeping but also for aesthetic purposes — which these days are as important as the tech specs for prospective buyers. Although they weren't a pioneer in double balance mechanisms, Audemars Piguet took an innovative approach by arranging two balance wheels and hairsprings on a single axis, ensuring weight distribution.
