A conversation with Kenneth Perez
his favorite garments and brands
We had a chat with football analyst Kenneth Perez about his favorite garments and brands – about what he likes to wear at work, at the table, along the field and in his spare time.
Who is Kenneth Perez?
I am a Dane, who actually came to the Netherlands in 97 to play football, at MVV, and that is how I worked my way up, so I eventually played at Ajax, at PSV, and at Twente in 2010, again. That was already ten years ago.
What have you been doing for the past ten years?
Then I was asked to do television, to analyze football, at Eredisie Live, how it was called back then, which is now called FOX Sports. I started doing that and I have been doing it ever since, now for 9 years.
"Now I am much more focused on the quality of the garment. "Less is more" I must say, I really buy less clothes, but better clothes. "
Is there someone in your field who has inspired you?
I've always said in my last interviews of the last few years, what Gary Lineker, a former England football player did, he was a presenter of Match of the day, seemed like a good idea to me, to do something similar.
How do you present yourself as a football analyst?
You now see more and more that everyone is super neat and super well dressed. I welcome that, because in that way I can be in contact with super beautiful materials, super beautiful brands. And then you can also dress differently than how I normally dress.
Is there a brand you like to wear?
I think you are wearing that now, aren’t you? The shirt and the jacket?
Yes because the last time I saw you, you were standing in the rain along the field
What do you like to wear on tv?
In general, of course, I am wearing a shirts and a nicely cut coat. And every once in a while I choose a tie, or not. Sometimes it is also taken into account whether it is really a top match, that you are just a little tighter dressed. Just like when I played football, if it was a top match, you are just a bit more concerned with that. On weekends I always wear a jacket and a shirts. And on Monday with the football talk, I have more of a tie, shirts, and a sweater or any knit. But what is really nice, is that if it is comfortable, and you feel comfortable, then you sit a bit easier.
Has your clothing style changed over the years?
Now I am much more focused on the quality of the garment. "Less is more" I must say, I really buy less clothes, but better clothes.
