Black tailored ties feature prominently at Allan Border Medal night
Skinny black ties were all the rage at the Allan Border Medal last night (February 27), with Australia's best male cricketers matching their partners in the fashion stakes every step of the way.
As the game's major annual awards ceremony, this exciting event hosted the sport's elite stars for a night of glamour and celebration.
Australian captain Michael Clarke emerged victorious - claiming his third medal for the best cricketer of the season in the showpiece event's 13-year history.
But while Clarke took home the big prize - and looked every bit a leader in his suit and black tie - plenty of other players made their mark with their stylish appearance alone.
Former captain Ricky Ponting, lion-hearted fast bowler Peter Siddle, dashing opening batsman David Warner and the currently injured Mitchell Johnson were just some of those to hit the red carpet in sleek black tailored ties.
The fashion of choice was far removed from the so-call 'pyjama' clothing featured in the One-Day International Tri-Series being played between Australia, India and Sri Lanka at present.
In fact, cricket fans might well have taken note of how well their idols wore a suit and be looking to add some similarly sophisticated pieces to their own wardrobes.
