MEN of Style Dwayne De Rosario, DC United For Dwayne De Rosario, style starts with music. The Canadian playmaker is the de facto DJ in the DC United clubhouse. “Usually it’s my iPod that steers the mood of the locker room,” he says, putting everything from Bob Marley to Sade to old-school hip-hop to use in that service. Off the fi eld, the former MVP doesn’t get much free time to himself—his wife and four kids see to that at their home in Ashburn, where you can fi nd the family man cooking for his brood. “I kind of go with how I feel,” he says of his look, and, at times over his 13-year career, he’s felt like braids, a ponytail and all manner of facial hair. When dressing up, he gravitates to Hickey Freeman and Louis Vuitton shoes; on more casual days, he goes for a more “urban, funky” look. “It’s all about the feeling,” he says. “If I see something I like, I just buy it.” Suit Custom tailoring by Hart Schaffner Marx Shirt Tie $85, at Hugh & Crye, Georgetown $98.50, at Brooks Brothers of Georgetown Pocket Square $40, at Brooks Brothers of Georgetown Belt De Rosario’s own, by Louis Vuitton Watch Price available upon request, by Tag Heuer at Tiny Jewel Box Briefcase $1,005, at Sterling & Burke Ltd., Georgetown Shoes De Rosario’s own, by Louis Vuitton
