MEN of Style Josh Morgan, Washington Redskins After playing for the San Francisco 49ers for four years, former H.D. Woodson High School and Virginia Tech standout Josh Morgan got to live out his dream last season, signing with his hometown Redskins. While Morgan always kept his DC residency, he’s still struck by the ever-changing city. “It’s a little bit like New York, a little bit like [California],” says the wideout. “It’s taking the best out of different areas.” The best for Morgan: the Verizon Center, where he can let loose his inner basketball fan; Ben’s Next Door on U Street, where a childhood friend cooks; and his grandmother’s house. Morgan, who was the Redskins’ 2012 pick for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award, looks at his style as “young and fresh,” but maybe his teammates put it better: “They say I remind them of Jay-Z. It’s not too much [fl ash], but you look good.” To that end, he favors custom suits by Élevée and Astor & Black, and he’s picked up pieces everywhere from L.A. to Atlanta to Paris. “You can make anything work, you just have to put it together.” Custom tailoring by Astor & Black Morgan’s own, by Compliments Morgan’s own, by Bruno Piattelli $35, at Sterling & Burke Ltd., Georgetown Suit Shirt Tie Pocket Square Price available upon request, by Breitling at Tiny Jewel Box Price available upon request, by David Yurman at Tiny Jewel Box Morgan’s own, by Louis Vuitton Watch Cuff Links Shoes
