MR PORTER visits Mr Michael Bennett, a star football player who has been on the field for more than a decade, from his high-school years in Houston, on to Texas A&M, then as part of the Seattle Seahawks’ vaunted Legion of Boom defence. In his book, and in life, as he steps forward to be seen – knowing full well the ways in which his words and images could be parsed, misconstrued, weaponised – Mr Bennett has had to take incredible care that he says precisely what he means. So, imagine the care with which he presents himself. Imagine what a big deal it is for Mr Bennett to feel he has ably and eloquently expressed himself, in person and on the page. And consider, then, how much time and care and consideration he puts into his clothes and outward appearance. Add to this the fact that the man has great taste and you see why he is a dream collaborator for an episode of My Amazing Wardrobe.
