Indian footballer Suniel Chhetri donned a maroon blazer and trousers that he paired with black tees as well. However, unlike Aayush, Chhetri's blazer looked like it needed a lot more tailoring and fit awkwardly on the celebrated sports star’s shoulders. He completed his look with brown shoes. Our verdict, the sport star definitely needs a fashion makeover.
