OUTFIT OF THE DAY
#1,169 ANTHONY JOSHUA: STYLE CHAMP
By Kasia Hastings, 11 May 2017
Here’s Anthony Joshua in a knockout suit that sees him secure yet another title: our outfit of the day.
As professional boxers go, they don’t come much better – or more stylish – at the moment than Joshua. Just 12 days since he delivered the fight of the decade – defeating Wladimir Klitschko in the 11th round of a back-and-forth bout – he’s already out showing the world that his talents extend well beyond the boxing ring. This week, while out for dinner with his team ahead of the announcement of his next big fight, Joshua delivered a simple, solid lesson in how to do smart when you’re working with a bigger build.
Finding a fresh outfit that fits well hasn’t always been easy for taller guys, especially when it comes to tailoring and – at 6' 6" – the Watford boy is well above average height. The key to Joshua’s sartorial success is keeping it simple. He teams his navy, slim, single-breasted jacket and skinny trousers with a clean white T-shirt – worn tucked in – a black belt and a pair of suede woven slip-on trainers with an icy sole. Minimal fuss, maximum impact.
