The Fashion Disasters of TV Sports - BusinessWeek
- ESPN anchor Rece Davis began his career looking like a Sigma Nu pledge. "I had two shirts," he says, "the white oxford buttoned-down and the blue oxford buttoned-down." However, experienceâ€”and the prodding of his wifeâ€”has helped Davis forge his own neo-preppy look. He began turning down the network's swag suits and cut a deal with New York clothier Peter Millar. Now Davis "can't stand to see guys wear buttoned-down shirts with suits. Save that for the yacht club," he says. Thanks to his fashion-forward colleague, Scott Van Pelt, Davis is on to a new style motifâ€”pocket squares. "Van Pelt said his grandfather told him once that 9 out of 10 men don't wear pocket squares," Davis recalls. "And you don't want to dress like 9 out of 10 men."
