Question of the Day: The Polo Shirt
Who the hell made the call on this fine work of fashion craftsmanship being part of the English National Team kit?
A one-eyed peppermint candy maker on a day course in golf shirt pattern-making?
Frank is not amused, and neither are we.
This quote sums up the experience quite nicely:
I’m very concerned by the way it makes England’s lithe athletes look like lardy layabouts.
Btw, the above was commentary on the white kit, as seen during the game against Slovakia, not this 1970s biscuit-coloured, collared blaze of knitted glory.
