Clothes make the Manager

Ernie Palladino takes a look at the sartorial stylings of managers and coaches:

Believe it or not, there's no rule that forbids a manager from wearing shirt, tie and jacket.But the chances of that happening again are, well ...

"They can make that request," MLB vice president of public relations Pat Courtney said. "Managers are only required to wear licensed apparel. The sponsors can make them a suit."

I think some manager should try this. I'd love to see what the folks at New Era could do in a double breasted number. I'm guessing it would look great until the damn thing shrank and started to show sweat stains.
