Synopsis

Fashion has played a major part in the elevation of footballers to iconic status in modern society. Whether it be George Best's famous clothes shops, Alan Hudson's haircut or David Beckham's unique dress sense, the worlds of fashion and football have often intertwined. This relationship is brilliantly brought to life in "The Fashion of Football". The journey starts with the players and focuses on stars such as George Best, Bobby Moore, Steve Perryman, Alan Hudson, Mike Summerbee, Darren Ward and David Beckham, as well as with a wider range of famous names, like the tailor Dougie Hayward, who designed Bobby Moore's suits. The book then moves on to chart the many influential street fashions that have emanated from the terraces over the years, notably the Skinhead in the late '60s and the birth of the Casual in the mid-'70s. Fans of all persuasions have contributed their testimonies, including the singer Kevin Rowland, the writer Irvine Welsh and members of Cardiff's notorious Soul Crew. This is a unique and riveting read.
