“It’s a pretty fashionable team. You’ve got a lot of guys who’ve been doing it for a while, so you can pick and choose stuff off them. At 20 years old, you [enter the NHL] and probably haven’t had a lot of money to buy [high-end fashion]. Then, all of a sudden, you have money—and you get ideas. You get to deck yourself out. We spend so much time in suits and nice clothes that it kind of becomes a hobby.” –Tom Wilson ON HIS STYLE Shirt, $395, at Zegna, Tysons Galleria; tie, $95, by Turnbull & Asser at Bloomingdale’s, Chevy Chase; shoes, $325, by Magnanni at Nordstrom, Tysons Galleria; pocket square, $45, at Ike Behar, Georgetown; bag, $145, by Ted Baker at Nordstrom, Tysons Galleria; steel and rose gold yacht master watch, $25,150, by Rolex and Annapolis cuff links, $1,250, both at Liljenquist & Beckstead, McLean. Given his reputation, one TOM WILSON would half expect The Enforcer Capitals tough guy Tom Wilson to walk around in a leather vest and a perpetual scowl. But the second-year winger and fan favorite, who has a reputation for fi sticuffs on the ice (and the penalty minutes that come with them), is calm, quick to smile and is partial toward suits from Boss, Burberry and Indochino from his native Canada. “I’m a lot different off the ice,” he says with a laugh. He’s still a kid in the National Hockey League, so Wilson can be forgiven for looking locker-room casual during Ping-Pong tourneys in the Arlington house he shares with two teammates, and he dons J.Crew shirts for a night at a Wizards game. But come game days and road trips, it’s mostly all sharp suits. And for that, he takes cues from the team’s veterans like Brooks Laich and former Men of Style alumnus Mike Green, who “lend a hand if you need it.” Every time Green walks by, Wilson says, teammates ask, “Greenie, how do you look so good? His hair’s perfect; he’s always got the pocket square, and he’s done up in his A suit.” Even at this stage of his young career, Wilson knows the look is everything—on and off the ice.
