Cool, calm and collected… Well, wardrobe-wise at least. Forget bog-standard tracksuits, these football managers are smart, sharp and always well-presented. Here’s our picks of football managers who nail it and how you can dress like the best.
There were plenty of things to talk about during 2018’s World Cup, Gareth Southgate’s waistcoats included. On the ball with his look (pun firmly intended), Southgate opted for an array of perfectly tailored navy waistcoats for his World Cup managerial debut.

This Man City manager needs no Pep talk when it comes to his look… Pep Guardiola may be flexible to formation, but wardrobe-wise he sticks to what he knows. All about tailoring, Pep is fond of a sharp, slim 2-piece suit at matches. However during colder seasons, you’re likely to see him in a fine-gauge crew-neck jumper under a classic Overcoat.
Unlike the other managers on the list, Spain’s Luis Enrique keeps a more casual approach to his football style. Most famously known for his green parka jacket (which is often a more memorable sight than the game itself. Enrique is more street-style than suits.

The footballer-turned-manger has refined his look over the years sporting a classic three-piece suit on and off-duty. When it comes to the beautiful game Powell always shows up match-ready in a finely tailored look, and as a supporter of Prostate Cancer UK is known to finish off the outfit with the charity pin badge.
