Spotted at Silverstone yesterday: click

Far be it for me to preach fashion, but SHEESH. What is up with that hat?!? :lol:

On the positive side, at least he has moved on from his cowboy boots and tucked-in polo shirt...

The Schumacher family can never be thanked enough for their contribution to paddock fashions. They're sartorial geniuses. :up:

The pink shirt looks kind of cool but that cowboy hat... whats next water guns in the belt? A full ninja costume? Maybe dressed up as one of the turtles :rotfl:

I find it comforting to know that the best driver in F1 in the past decade, with a staggering record of success, in who's hands every fortnight rests millions of pounds worth of responsibility, hopes, dreams and aspirations . . . . should never be allowed to go into a clothes shop alone.

We all have our weaknesses, and it seems Mr Schumacher's is this . . .

You dont need all that money for that. Reminds me of the Office Space though and the rather hilarious scene with Peter and his neighbour (Lawrence?) talking about having a million dollars.

He wore a cowboy hat in his Benetton days too. I remember he had one on after he won one of his championships :smoking:

Not that it matters.

Be careful what you wish for. Seems some of you want drivers that behave like robotors, speak, dress, like a PR machine. Next step, drivers need to show up with a proper tie in the pitlane or what?

I'm not a Schumi fan at all, but I believe that all of us have a right to dress as he/she likes. If Michael likes this hat or shirt, let him wear them to his pleasure. This is not our bussiness.

That hat makes him look more of a Van Morrison fan to me (given Ferrari's curent form I guess he been listening a lot to "Slim Slow Slider") :)

Brilliant a driver as he is, MS has been a fashion train-wreck since day one. These examples are actually pretty normal compared to some others I can remember, including chaps and a whimsically Seinfeld-esque "puffy shirt".

As for what he's thinking, I suspect it's something along the lines of "make room please, world champion coming through..."

what the heck is wrong with it? I've seen much worse coming out of fashion shows in Milan, Paris and NY. I say we should worry if Schumi starts sporting Truli's over the top ponytail style ;)

not at all... I saw the pictures and thought "What the...?"
This hat, combined with the rest of his outfit (i.e. his Ferrari sweater) is just looking ridiculous.

If I had a million dollars (If I had a million dollars)
I'd buy you a green dress (but not a real green dress, that's cruel)

Whenever he wears that hat he should also wear a white glove on one hand. Would look remarkably similar to a certain other Michael... :lol:

I believe he was wearing an Inspector Gadget hat! Anyway, he's never been known to be a fashion guy but it's nice that he doesn't give a crap what we think. Like water off a duck's back. What does surprise me is that Corinna does have style and you'd think he'd run it by her and if she winced he'd get the point.Oh well.... :wave:

That indeed is a fedora, which worn with properly maintained slacks and a decently colored shirt, would look real good.

Same for the red sweater/shirt, with some properly maintained jeans, and perhaps a baseball cap would look great.

The jeans with a washed t-shirt, or those new wrinkled shirts would be quite stylish.

However the combination of all three elements make his look very eclectic.

As for the pink shirt / white pants / white shoes, let's just say that's too fab-five for my taste. Again, any of those components proplerly used would look fine.

Aw, leave him alone. It's not like he's such a major fashion victim. I've seen worse. I'll stick to hating him ON the track.

It is called Kitsch
As demonstrated by many people from working class backgrounds who acquire large sums of money.
However....
I think he carries it off rather well.
howardt is correct

to be fair the red is a ferrari sweat

Michael IS a bit of a style free zone.. but hey, having seen the photos provided by members here in the pictures threads I would expect a bit less comment....;)

It doesn't suit Schumacher, slacks or no slacks. Period.

That was so last year. :rolleyes:

All of those "components" look like they came from Schumacher's granddad's closet. The proper use for them would include a can of gasoline and matches.;)

A hat. It is used to keep the sun/rain of your eyes and neck.
These people that wear hats with peaks, do they only face towards the sun or the rain? If it is not raining or not sunny, why do they wear one?
Schumacher does lots of daft things, but his clothes are functional, unlike the usless peaked caps which give you sun burn on the back of your neck, unless you wear them backwards in which case you get sun in your eyes.
Fashion is tosh.

I'm a Villeneuve fan and somewhat of a fashion whore myself. I think Micheal fashion statement is cool, its got individualism in them. Its much better than Jacques baggy jeans and baggy overalls, or Jarno's freggin hair.
