We knew Mariano Rivera has always looked pretty good in pinstripes, but now he’s taking it to a new level. From Women’s Wear Daily (via the subscription-only Sports Business Daily), we learn that Rivera will don a stylin’ pinstripe suit for Canali’s spring advertisements. The Yanks’ closer will be hawking the Italian men’s wear company in newspaper and magazines this spring and may do some in-store events as well. “He is a very positive person, with a great attitude and style,” Elisabetta Canali, the company’s global communications director, said. “He represents excellence in his field and it comes natural for us to look at him as an ambassador of those values we both share.”
Clearly, Mo, looking sharp in the suit, is gearing up for his career after baseball: male model.
