Handsomely United

May 31, 2011

Paul Smith was here: the purple laces on black Oxfords says it all. The Manchester United soccer team is outfitted with the designer's take on an off-field uniform as part of a 3-year partnership. We wanna play.

We love a man in a suit and you can bet your loafers that we got pretty excited when we got 29 of ’em in British designer Paul Smith‘s idea of a good time.

And not just any 29 men but rather the sensational lads who make up British soccer team Manchester United. The suiting outfit is part of the team’s 3-year partnership with Paul Smith and launched their new look in time for Manchester United’s forthcoming UEFA Championships League Final this past Saturday. The suit is a two-button number in grey mohair paired with a white cotton shirt and a burgundy silk polka-dot tie.

(Warning: these photos make modeling look easy. It is not, unless you’re a soccer star. For more easy-on-the-eyes soccer player modeling, see David Beckham.)
