Football shirt and Harrington jacket

Nothing says throwback steez quite like a long-sleeved retro-feel football shirt that looks like it’s been plucked straight from the 80s. With a striped neckline and minimal graphics, add one to your rotation to show that you can navigate old-school aesthetics.

When it comes to wearing your top, go full-on terrace style and pair it with a light-brown corduroy Harrington jacket. On your bottom half, throw on a pair of Nike side-striped joggers and round off your ensemble with an 80s/90s footwear staple – the all-white Reebok Classic.

For an updated take on the look, try donning a football-inspired T-shirt instead. This bright-red England one is standout enough that you can afford to keep the rest of your getup pared-back.

If it’s warm out, pop on a pair of drawstring long denim shorts with side-striped detailing for added finesse. On foot, switch up your style and opt for smart lace-up shoes with white ankle socks for a laid-back look with an edge.

The beauty of football shirts is that they come in a variety of fabrics and cuts. This V-neck number with its metallic finish makes for an eye-catching outfit. Carry on the vibe down below and go for navy checked trousers.

For an extra style tip, make sure to roll the cuffs of your trews to throw in a subtle preppy element. As for your crep choice, pick a pair of Reebok ‘Leisure Pack’ Classic Nylons to complete your old-school ensemble.
