He certainly isn't afraid to do his own thing, which is admirable in this day and age.

All part of his carefully cultivated tw@ttish TV persona, you suspect.

No, all former players, and now sports presenters, are like that.  They have plenty time to look through the Littlewoods catalogues.

On Sky that's a valid point, but the ex-NRL players on Fox are always immaculately turned out.

Did Sky make him put a jacket on? He wouldn’t have looked daft in the polo shirt, chinos and trainers but it was the jacket that sent it over the edge. 

The less said on Carney, the better.

The company that provides the outfits for the pundits on Fox League gets a credit at the end of some of the games each week. I'm not sure any company would want to take credit for what Phil Clarke turns up in.

Hi Princey, that made me chuckle and made me think of gentleman's outfitters from Wigan when I was a kid - late 50's early 60's - I have this recollection that a guy would come around each week or month to collect the periodical payments from a lot of the homes locally to us in Leigh for the cloths that had been purchased on the 'never never', he was politely referred to as the 'Scoth Mon' and I think the reason was the store was either called 'Stewart's 'or 'Stuart's', have I dreamt this up or can you confirm I am there or there abouts correct?

I’m not sure Clarke is as dumb as he looks.

Clarke will have noted the response when he moonlighted as a fish finger enthusiast and fancied wearing similarly comment-worthy garb.

Takes the attention away from the absolute garbage he comes out with .... d’ya know they’re the best team in super league at scoring on third tackle from goal line dropouts on the left hand side , on Fridays when it’s sunny . That’s their 2096th goal line drop out forced since 1895

He’s an enigma. Has a science degree and a successful business but you’d never think it from the moronic stuff that comes out of his month on telly.

You're so vain, you probably think this thread is about you, don't you? Don't you?

Sorry Phil. I couldn't resist.

Just shown the pic to the good Mrs Dunbar who I can assure you is more insightful in these things than me.

In summary, the jacket and pants are not a suit (which they are not) then there should have been more of a contrast in colours... perhaps some darker trousers. 

The shoes should also have been darker (in particular if it was a suit or with this pant and jacket colour scheme).

She is also not a fan of the polo shirt under jacket but that is more personal. 

Apart from that, spot on.

Looks like Phil has hit the sweet spot between smart and smart-casual.
