Rogues Gallery | Conor McGregor09:54:00
I recently ran a poll on twitter to decide the next installment in my Rogues Gallery series, a poll that Conor McGregor won by a landslide.
In this post, I'll be looking at the rise of the MMA superstar Conor McGregor. While he has achieved greatness inside the ring; outside the ring it's his cocky persona and flamboyance that is as infamous as his fighting skills. As the only fighter to hold concurrent titles in different divisions in the UFC, McGregor has established himself as a force to be reckoned with. Renowned for trash talking and showboating, the difference is, his words can be backed up by his actions.
Now, this might be a controversial statement, but I think McGregor could be the Muhammad Ali of the 21st Century. A respected (albeit begrudgingly) athlete with a sharp tongue, big ego and a sense of style that polarizes the masses. Some perceive him as a shallow peacock, others as a true showman; using clothes to convey his confidence.
Patterned trousers will make a statement at a summer wedding, on holidays or just if you want to add some fun to your outfit on a night out.
If you take anything from Conor McGregor, let it be his confidence in his style. Your clothes should be an extension of your personality rather than an alternative for it. Allow your clothes to echo and boost faith in your own style.
Wear your clothes, don't let them wear you!
