Tommy Hilfiger says no one can look as sexy in a pair of underwear as David Beckham.

We say he looks a million bucks even otherwise.

Heck we say he's perfect!


David Beckham may have retired from soccer last year but he's far from being out of the running.

Take a look at his latest campaign for H&M and you'll know!

Designer Tommy Hilfiger even named him the best underwear model.

But there is a lot more to the 38-year-old former soccer star.

Hell we think he's probably as perfect as they come!

Here's why:

The suit was basically invented for him!

There are probably all of ten men in this world that carry off the suit. His name leads the rest.

Truth is he stopped being just another soccer star long long ago.

That's probably just one of the many reasons why even the Prime Minister of Britain cares about what he says.
