Cam Newton Just May Be The Most Fashionable NFL Athlete Ever

Cam Newton, the New England Patriots' newest quarterback and candidate for sharpest dresser in the NFL, has turned heads once again for his outrageous smack talk – as well as his latest luxury clothing flex.

Tom Brady's departure from the New England Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has dominated American football news this year. Brady, widely considered one of the best quarterbacks of all time, left some seriously big shoes to fill for the Pats. But that doesn't seem to faze Newton one bit.

The move from the Carolina Panthers, his home for the last eight years, for a one-year stint at the Pats has clearly energised the already effervescent Newton.

During a recent table chat with Cleveland Brown wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (aka OBJ), Atlanta Falcons running back Todd Gurley and former New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, Newton appeared confident and classy, wearing a Panama hat, smoking a stogie, and flexing a very crisp Moncler shirt.

Newton's got a well-established reputation as an NFL style icon, known for his love of big hats and his signature tropical-yet-classy style. He regularly steps out in brands like Balenciaga, Versace, Fendi and Gucci... But unlike many pro athletes worth squillions, he doesn't do it just to flex: he's a genuine fashion fan.

This clean grey Moncler tee is a subtle flex. Normally known for their jackets, French brand Moncler is a luxury stalwart. Since being listed on the Milan Stock Exchange in 2013 and the launch of their innovative Moncler Genius project in 2018, the heritage brand has gone from strength to strength – their growing reputation reflected by celebrities like Newton investing in their pieces.

Gianluca Vacchi Pairs Vintage Rolex With ‘Unlikely’ Footwear Choice

Instagram's 'hot Italian daddy' has done it again.

Gianluca Vacchi, the 52-year-old millionaire, DJ and unlikely social media dance star has never been one to dress subtly. His look is distinctive: covered in tatts, steely blue eyes, crisp beard, unashamedly gray hair, and clothes as flamboyant as Tony Montana's.

The man delights in flaunting his Playboy lifestyle and lavish taste, regularly rocking expensive suits, designer brands and lots of bling. Long ago, Vacchi gave up a successful career in private equity and business management, and decided instead to pursue the finer things in life (that said, he still describes himself as an 'entrepreneur' and owns shares in his families' business, the Italian packaging conglomerate IMA).

Another penchant of Vacchi's, rather incongruously, is fru-fru slippers. Vacchi's latest Instagram post shows him posing in a white linen suit, showing off a huge golden armlet and pocket chain, as well as a vintage gold Rolex GMT-Master worth $30,000... All paired with some obnoxiously fluffy slides, naturally.

Have a Nice weekend...❤️ #gvlifestyle

A post shared by Gianluca Vacchi (@gianlucavacchi) on

Whilst he does like living the stereotypically macho lifestyle of a playboy, Vacchi's never been afraid to embrace his feminine side, whether it's through weirdly sultry Latin dancing or showing off his midriff and wearing stilettos (he's actually pretty good in those).

It's not the first time he's rocked fluffy slides, either. He must have multiple pairs, as evidenced by this post he shared of a June teleconference (put some pants on, mate). But we're less interested in the slides than we are in his watch, truth be told.

The Rolex GMT-Master, first released in 1955, was designed for Pan Am pilots who needed accurate timekeeping between timezones. It instantly became popular among civilians, too. Vacchi's model appears to be an early 1955-59 "Nipple Dial" (ref. 6542) – nicknamed for its protruding gold house markers filled with lume.

That Vacchi would have a "Nipple Dial" seems highly appropriate... Looks like he's added his own personal touch with an aftermarket bovine leather strap, too. Nicely played.

We can laugh and point as much as we like but the reality is that Vacchi's living his best life. We'd kill to even experience a sliver of his lifestyle – although we might forgo the slides, thanks very much.

Johnny Depp Rectifies Courtroom Catastrophe With Simple Sartorial Save

Johnny Depp, the 57-year-old Hollywood legend best known for his leading roles in Edward Scissorhands and Pirates of the Caribbean, is having a particularly rough week.

The American actor has been dealing with an ugly court case in England, taking News Group Newspapers, publishers of The Sun, to court over allegations that he physically abused his ex-wife, Amber Heard. The libel case has been a rather nasty exercise with a lot of airing of dirty laundry... Some of it quite literally.

Understandably, when you're trying to defend your reputation, your outfit might not be the first thing that's on your mind. Depp's previous courtroom look, arriving at London's Royal Courts of Justice in a baggy navy suit and chunky shoes, revealed how preoccupied he must be – the normally dapper Depp looking like a ratty teenager wearing a suit for the first time.

Perhaps revealing how he's feeling about the unfolding case, Depp turned up (on Friday) to day 4 of the case re-energised with a much more flattering fit, which shows how it doesn't take much to turn a losing look into a winning one.

Depp was spotted in a slimming black suit, paired with a black paisley scarf and black woven tie, wearing vegetable-tanned oxfords and aviator sunglasses.

The suit seems to be almost identical to the navy suit he wore previously – same ticket pocket, same large lapels, same pocket square, even a similar cut. Yet this suit is far less baggy. His trousers are less creased and his blazer fits nicer. The black suits Depp much better, too.

The accessories are also more considered. Depp wore the same tie and scarf with his navy suit, using the scarf as a makeshift anti-coronavirus mask. (Looks much better than PPE, that's for sure). The colour coordination elevates the accessories, making them look far better in this ensemble than they did with the navy suit.

His shoes, too, are far nicer on the eyes. The treatment on the leather is beautifully rich and invoke just enough character without coming off as dishevelled, as opposed to the whack looking things he was spotted with previously.

Depp's fashion turnaround demonstrates how much of a difference even small adjustments can make to your outfit. A different colour, different shoes – and a different attitude – can turn a fashion fail into a success.

At ease, Captain Jack.

Kevin Hart Casually Debuts $100,000 Audemars Piguet In ‘Smoking’ Style

Kevin Hart is one of the most successful comedians of the 21st century. His legions of fans love him for his standup, film and TV appearances, but also because – unlike many comedians (looking at you, Gabriel Iglesias) – he's a style icon.

Consistently well-dressed, Hart constantly impresses with his style choices. He's also quite the watch fan, with a taste for the expensive stuff: Richard Mille, Patek Philippe, Rolex and of course Audemars Piguet making up the majority of watches in his million-dollar collection.

Hart reaffirmed his status as one of the best celebrity dressers this week, sharing his amazing birthday outfit on Instagram. Setting sail in Malibu on a superyacht with close family and friends for his 41st celebrations, the Philadelphia-born superstar shared a number of happy snaps showing off his beautiful family, as well as some designer clothes and a beautiful Audemars Piguet Royal Oak – a very apt birthday present, if you ask us.

This Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, ref. 26579CB.OO.1225CB.01, is constructed out of a beautiful white ceramic. Ceramic watches are seriously underrated and AP might be the best at making them: the lustrous, brittle ceramic looks great and is very light, but is incredibly hard to finish. It's a testament to the iconic Swiss watchmaker's craftsmanship.

Hart's previously demonstrated a love for AP's iconic Royal Oak line, having been spotted rocking a Royal Oak Selfwinding Openworked last year in New York.

This model is a particularly fine example of the breed, the brilliant white contrasting perfectly with the dark navy dial and making this AP a truly unique piece of wrist candy. It retails for 93,400 USD (134,600 AUD) but as it's a 'limited production' piece, you'd be lucky to snap one of these up for anything below a cool 100k USD.

Completing Hart's summer look is a tasteful Thom Browne hoodie, shirt and shorts combo, as well as a triple-white pair of the hype-worthy Sacai x Nike LDV Waffle sneaker collaboration, as well as – in other shots (with the kids not present) – a cigar Stallone would be proud of.

Founded by Chitose Abe in 1999, Sacai is a luxury Japanese fashion label known for its idiosyncratic design. The LDV Waffles have a unique design, each shoe constructed like two slightly overlapping sneakers, with a double tongue, two sets of laces and a stacked midsole... Maybe that's why notoriously short Hart was rocking them.

In any case, the super clean nautical-inspired outfit and timepiece just scream class.

Happy birthday, Kevin.

Johnny Depp’s ‘Courtroom Fashion’ Gaffe Is Proof Even Celebrities Need A Good Tailor

Johnny Depp is normally a pretty dapper fellow: the 57-year-old actor has a reputation for being a slick dresser. Even when he dresses up as a pirate his 'dreadlock chic' puts most men to shame.

But his latest outfit, captured upon his arrival at London's Royal Courts of Justice yesterday morning, shows that maybe Depp needs to ask for a second opinion every once in a while.

In a move almost as strange as Kanye West singing about wanting to sleep with his sisters-in-law, Depp stepped out in an outfit fit for... well, not him.

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="545"] Credit: Getty Images[/caption]

Depp's navy suit is ill-fitting. In fact, he almost looks like a teenager rocking up to traffic court in his dad's old blazer. His trousers are also pretty creased, and we're not a fan of what looks like a chunky pair of Clarks he's decided to pair with his ensemble. It's just all over the place: his hair, the slightly-too-casual scarf, the aviators, the dark shirt – the litanies go on.

He's probably got more important things on his mind, though. He's suing The Sun and its executive editor for libel over an article written in April 2018 calling Depp a "wife beater", ABC News reports. They're serious allegations, and it's set to be quite a messy trial. That said, if it was us, we would be wanting to make the best impression possible for the judge, so we'd invest a little more time in our outfit.

Maybe he should have read our guide on how to make a good suit great (hint, hint).
