Style Showdown: AFL Grand Final

We are a fickle lot here at The Significant Man. We have decided to go against the grain and try to pick the winner of this weekends AFL grand final in our own unique way. It has nothing to do with team consistency, ball handling skills or even individual player stats. Our system of picking the winner is based on off-field menswear fashion style.

So let’s take a look at two big name players from each team. For Hawthorn we have chosen captain Luke Hodge, and for the Sydney Swans it just has to be co-captain Adam Goodes.

                             

Luke Hodge has a certain effortless charm that allows him to look sharp in virtually any outfit. As a born leader, Hodge can wear something as simple as a plain tank top and still exude confidence and style.

Of course, having that confidence can so easily lead to some fashion mishaps. We are not sure what to make of this shiny grey suit with black trims. On the one hand we admire Hodge’s boldness. The suit is certainly a head turner and the matching black tie and crisp white shirt gives it a bit of retro charm.

What are your thoughts on this glossy grey suit?

For an evening at the Brownlows, I think we would probably go with this more refined look. Luke Hodge brings out his inner James Bond here with his wife Lauren, wearing a classic black tuxedo with bow tie.

Dual Brownlow medalist Adam Goodes is well known as one the nice guys of AFL football. A superstar on the field, in person he has a relaxed, laid back vibe. We like his casual “just from the gym” look with printed T-Shirt and sweat jacket.

When he steps it up a notch, Goodes shows he has definite style. Check out this three quarter length jacket with open shirt look. This shows some serious fashion chops and suits his size and shape extremely well.

In a more formal setting, Goodes continues to show style. This black suit and tie with crisp white shirt ensemble is hard not to like and Adam wears it well. A well fitted suit can always set you apart from the crowd.
Once again, it’s almost too close to call! Both Adam Goodes and Luke Hodge have their own distinct style and both men seem to enjoy taking some risks with their menswear.

A quick show of hands around The Significant Man office and the AFL grand final style showdown goes to…Adam Goodes!

There really is nothing in it. We suspect there may be some suspicious voting from a couple of diehard Swans fans here in the office. Nevertheless, the vote stands. We are tipping a Sydney Swans win on the weekend!

Who do you guys think has the style edge? Adam Goodes or Luke Hodge?

What to Wear to the Footy

Footy finals are approaching fast, so no matter what code you follow it’s a great time to get out and support your team. Ron Bennett Big Mens have a huge selection of garments ideal for watching the game from the sidelines or the stands.

Of course, for the hotter days, it is hard to go past a sporty looking Polo Shirt.

The style and versatility of a Polo is perfect for a rough and tumble game of footy on a warm afternoon. But this time of year, the weather can be a bit more unpredictable. The key for watching your favourite team in comfort this season is to layer up. It may be chilly when you make your way to the big game, but who knows how heated you are going to get when you are there? That’s why wearing layers is your best bet.

You could start with a long sleeve shirt, like one of these from Blazer.

Then you can cover up with a sweatshirt or stylish knit. Canterbury have some of the best sweatshirts available, while this Blazer knit provides both comfort and warmth.

For those really chilly days you’ll need something warmer like this double breasted overcoat from Bennett, or one of these great looking jackets from Breakaway.

And to top it all off, you’ll need one of these Sovrano scarves to shield you from the brisk wind.

These are just a few suggestions for your trip to the footy this year, for more ideas why not check out Ron Bennett Big Men’s full range from our online store.
