For his choice of sartorial statement on Monday night, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick opted for the plain, gray sweatshirt look.
The familiar hood? Gone. Absent, too, were the sleeves of the sweatshirt, cut off, noticeably raggedly, at the elbow. And the collar was badly stretched out of shape. It was an ensemble likely to earn Belichick a phone call from the NFL's fashion police, who prefer that everyone, coaches included, dresses in sterile lockstep.
