Kris Bryant is what baseball scouts like to call a “five-tool player.” In his first season with the Chicago Cubs, Bryant excelled in hitting for average, footspeed, throwing, fielding, and (of course) knocking the hell out of a baseball.
But with all due respect to baseball scouts, we’d like to add a sixth one to the list: He looks damn good doing it. So it’s no wonder that EXPRESS signed him on as their new brand ambassador, where he joins Steph Curry as another game-changing athlete that has joined the ranks of athletic style icons.
As the National League Rookie of the Year looks to once again lead the Cubs to a second consecutive pennant race (and beyond), we got him to share some of his can’t-go-wrong style guidelines for every guy. Scroll through the gallery of Bryant’s looks from his new EXPRESS campaign and his man-to-man wisdom for dressing up (or down) like, well, a pro.
