Thierry Henry Wears Tracksuit Bottoms With Suit Jacket Because He Does What He Wants
Thierry Henry went for the epitome of "smart/casual" for his first Monaco press conference today, turning up in a suit, trackie bottoms and trainers.
The Arsenal legend, who has signed at three-year deal with the club with whom he started his career with many moons ago, was officially unveiled in front of the media a couple of days after taking charge of his first training session.
'TH14' has always been viewed as a bit of a suave guy and a fashion icon but today's look was definitely his most bold/brave yet. Although to be fair, if anyone could pull off trackies and a suit then it's Monsieur Henry.

Henry has also struck us as 'a shirt and tie' kind of guy on the touchline but after his outfit of choice today, maybe he could opt for the dress-down approach when in the dug-out at the Stade Louis. Then again, what's to say he doesn't continue merging the two styles together.
The only managerial attire that rivals Henry's is Bryan Robson taking the whole "player-manager" role very seriously when drafted in by Middlesbrough.
Like his former Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp said on Instagram, Henry could wear a bin bag and still look "the nuts".
The former Belgium assistant manager's first game in his managerial will see his Monaco side travel to play Strasbourg away from home on Saturday.
The Principality club are situated 18th in the league, just one point in front of bottom team Guingamp.
