Most Stylish Athletes
The Yankee Clipper married Marilyn Monroe at San Francisco City Hall in 1954. Before the last grain of rice was thrown, he had become the 20th century most photographed athlete. DiMaggio made the most of this attention, allowing his broad shouldered sartorial choices to speak for him. Long after the New York centerfielder playing days were over he remained a fixture in the public consciousness as a pitchman and song lyric subject. DiMaggio wide, double breasted suit was the height of 1950s style, but we suspect more people were looking at his arm candy than his clothes.
