Do “clothes make the man” as Mark Twain and Erasmus said so well? If so, does that make Eli Manning, the former New York Giants QB two-time Super Bowl winner, boring?
The People Gallery, an Instagram and TikTok account run by Maurice Kamara, stops New Yorkers to enthusiastically quiz them about their personal fashion choices. According to GQ, Kamara is a sales clerk at a luxury boutique in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood. So he probably knows his way around a good fit.
“Sometimes celebrities get a pass,” he told GQ in 2022. “But mostly I try to find the most dope cuts.”
Kamara has over 500,000 combined followers on Instagram and TikTok. He has famous fans like Bella Hadid, A$AP Rocky and Madonna and has made videos with comedian Aziz Ansari, rapper Lil Uzi Vert, actor Bokeem Woodbine and dozens of fashionable New Yorkers.
Return to Manning. He was recently asked about his style.
“It’s called the boring look. It’s called the daddy look,” Manning said in the video.
Also known as golf shirt and zip vest with casual sneakers. But maybe it’s high fashion or the coolest fit for boring dads everywhere.
