Default Armani suits dapper Mario Williams just fine

Houston Texans defensive end Mario Williams has a hard time finding clothes that fit. At the Giorgio Armani store recently, the 6-foot-7-inch, 290-pound football star blamed his big thighs and “my gluteus maximus” for his inability to find on-the-rack clothing. His solution: More than 30 custom-made suits.

He insists he’s not a clotheshorse. “I want to look presentable at public events,” he said. “I won’t wear a wife-beater and shorts.”

Williams, in a custom-made Armani suit, and Esquire magazine hosted an evening of shopping and cocktails. Made-to-measure specialist Mario Vergani was on hand to take orders. Ten percent of sales benefited the Center for Citizen Leadership. A custom-made Armani suit starts at $3,200. One nice feature (besides a perfect fit): Each suit has the name of the owner embroidered on an inside pocket.

Yep nothing wrong with that...until the PC police show up and object to the term "wife-beater".

Yeah, I can see that. Maybe he should have said "significant other" beater.

Oh, what the hell is up with this pic? Mario on the catwalk?

That pic was from ESPN's promo for the draft where they put a bunch of the top rated players in some weird costumes.
