Men’s Style Icon: Jamie Redknapp

Jamie Redknapp is a rare exception. He is a footballer that knows how to dress. Of course Jamie quit football a few years ago but now as a pundit for sky sports he remains heavily involved in the game as well as building a television profile for his part as team captain in James Corden’s a league of their own quiz.

Mr Redknapp’s fashion sense has been on my radar for a while now and what I love about his look and his sense of style is it’s uniformed out of his own capsule. I’m going to explain this by analysing his formal and dress down looks and why it’s so effective. As a budding fashionista I am constantly looking through magazines and watching endless television for research in to what the guys in the spotlight are wearing and being dressed in. For the last few years tuning into sky’s football coverage hasn’t always been about what game’ s on but what attire Mr Redknapp’s wearing. His formal look is simple but ever so effective as he brings high fashion tailored looks into his own capsule uniform. His suits that are tailored to perfection are rotated between a black, navy and light grey sharkskin.

For his sky sports uniform he normally pairs with a crisp white shirt with a simple medium spread collar and to finish it’s again a rotation between a slim tie or a knitted version. Again the colour pallet for his ties doesn’t go out from black or navy with the odd white spot thrown in. I love the concept of what his formal uniform is about and one of my favourite looks of his that I like is when he puts together his light grey sharkskin suit with a similar light grey shirt and black slim tie. Tonal brilliance!

Another small detail that sticks out is you very rarely see Redknapp with a belt which I suppose is the perk of having tailored trousers but for me gives his formal uniform look a clean cut, minimal feel as well as never having a handkerchief or an adding touch from a choice of pocket squares. Less is more??? For formal engagements and events out side of his punditry it does seem that he is willing to add some minor adjustments for example a three piece suit, white pocket square or a burgundy tie while still keeping true to his ethos.

Where Redknapp is pretty militant with his formal uniform he allows himself a bit more freedom when it comes to dressing down though he still sticks to a similar colour pallet. His dress down looks are made up from tailored jackets with black or white t shirt’s , denim and designer trainers from the likes of Balenciaga and Lanvin. Also in the mix are open collared shirts and knitwear.

For me Mr Redknapp is under recognised for his work by the fashion press! Ok some might say he has money at his disposal to spend on the best designers the world of men’s fashion has to offer, but surely he deserves credit for the way he has created with influences his own capsule of looks which are consistent and individual.

    The u shape waistcoat is a signiture look from Thom Sweeney as is the 3 piece that redknapp is wearing. Hopefully other menswear labels will soon have a go at this style.
