Now the season is over, what we really want to know is how the Premiership managers dressed this season. One striking fact is that the only manager not to have an image of them wearing a suit on Google Images finished bottom of the league.
Roberto Mancini. Always impeccably dressed. Always seen wearing a pocket square even occasionally in his overcoats. Rightfully top of the league.
Alex Ferguson. Sleeves always slightly long (like many other managers). In fact, this may well be because he is used to spending time gesturing with his arms in the air and his sleeves riding up. Dress: Consistent but not exceptional. 3 Arsenal Arsene Wenger. When Arsene chooses to wear a suit, he has a good shape for one. However, he prefers the looser fit, long sleeves and comfort. Debatable 3rd Place. 4 Tottenham Harry Redknapp. On suits alone, Harry definitely should not have earned the final Champions League spot. However, Roberto Di Matteo could still snatch this position with a victory against Bayern this Saturday. 5 Newcastle Alan Pardew. One of the few Premiership managers with a double breasted suit on Google images. For this he earns respect. 6 Chelsea Roberto Di Matteo. Skinny Tie, skinny lapels This Italian knows what he is doing. Always looks impeccable, and worthy of the Champions League spot that he could still win this Saturday. 7 Everton David Moyes. Good season and actually looks great in a suit. We're not quite sure that he should have finished above fellow Scot and archrival Kenny below though. 8 Liverpool
Kenny Dalgish. Well tapered, with a tidy sleeve length. He obviously has respect for his suits. It's just a shame he prefers to parade in his tracksuit so much.
Martin Jol. Not usually one for a suit, but when he does wear one, he wears it well. Good length of sleeve. The single button suit in this image will make him look more proportioned as he is fairly broad. It's a clever choice even with his height being over 6 foot.
Roy Hodgson. It's obvious that the suit is secondary to Roy. Nothing good or bad to report, just a general spirit of I should wear a suit. Come on Roy let's push for the top spot England needs it!
Brendan Rodgers. Tapered, good length, buttonhole posy. Well thought out, and looking good. Eleventh place is a good start for Brendan, and with that dress he could do well next season too.
Paul Lambert. Slightly loose both on the jacket waist and the arms. The trousers are quite relaxed too. Potentially this is an old suit, before losing weight? Either way, let's get you properly fitted Paul, drop us a line!
Martin O'Neill. When he wears a suit, he does so with panache. Check out the check on the right. Probably the most interesting fabric of the entire bunch. Having said that, he needs to wear them more often and aim for a higher place next season.
Tony Pulis. Although there are no decent touch line images of Tony in a suit, we feel an unworthy 14th Place. As a premiership manager, you are an inspirational figure to your players and your fans. Come on Tony!
Roberto Martinez. Roberto is the most popular first name of managers in the Premiership. Being Italian, they have all been well educated in the art of style. It's great that Wigan had a good end to the season and stayed up. We need all the Roberto's to up the ante in the suit style stakes...
Alex McLeish. Had a bit too much on his mind to worry about his suits this season. If he stays in the job, we'd be expecting better things next season. The fans will be too!
Mark Hughes. In great shape for a suit, and obviously thinks about his style. A Suit That Fits has made suits for the QPR players and staff in the past, and Mark is doing us proud.
Owen Coyle. Never looked comfortable in the Premiership, and once again, touchline suits were a rarity. Owen if you stay on as Bolton boss, come to see us and we'll get you promoted.
Steve Kean. Some say that Keane should have been sacked a while ago, others say that the suit just needs to be let out by a couple of inches in the waist. Either way, if Steve chooses to dress well for the meeting with his chairman, he may have a chance at keeping his job. Good luck Steve, you are welcome to read our blog to get a few tips.
Terry Connor. First to be relegated this season and rightfully so. Not a single suit picture on Google Images. Terry for advice on your suit for the next job interview have a read of this.
