You wouldn’t expect a professional soccer player with the nickname “the Panther” to be goofy. But flashes of Gustavo Bou’s sense of humor and playfulness were on full display in-between clicks of the camera. The Argentinian-born athlete was signed to the Revolution team just this past summer in a record-making deal. His first season didn’t disappoint, and it’s clear from his performance on the field that he takes his career very seriously. But get him out of his uniform and into some of his clothes that are equally flashy and conventional, trendy and classic, and a lighter, more playful man emerges. His style actually fully embodies his spirit—well-tailored essentials like a camel overcoat exist comfortably in his wardrobe next to a leather moto jacket with a bedazzled cammo skull on the back. He might be killing it on the field, but there’s a cuddly kitten inside that panther.

The worst fashion faux pas is someone who thinks they’re more than they are.
Dolce & Gabbana is my favorite shoe designer.
If I wear jewelry, it’s always my chains, rings and watch.
My favorite watch is a Rolex.
