Not only did legendary Dodgers scout Mike Brito discover Fernando Valenzuela and Yasiel Puig, and thirty players in between. Not only did he man the radar gun behind home plate for years, calmly smoking a cigar. Not only are his fingers so crowded with championship rings you crunch them when you shake his hand. But Mike Brito is also the best-dressed person on the field.

From his Cordoba penny loafers, to the hat that perfectly complements his matching tie and handkerchief, even down to the brown-tinted sunglasses, he is an antidote to Zubaz America.

In our interview he describes what he looks for in a player, and reveals his secret clothing weapon. Okay, we'll tell you: his wife picks out his "combinations."
