David Beckham has long been in the twilight of his career, but he is still one of the icons of sport, and always one of the most stylish. His over-hyped move to the U.S. to play soccer (or the real “football” depending on which side of the Atlantic you hail from) did little to move the interest needle (actually it did pretty much nothing at all). But even with his best football days behind him, the name still resonates in sport, and often in fashion. Plus, the man can pull-off the ink better than any white man on the planet.
David Beckham Bodywear for H&M launches today and the 21-piece line includes simple staples like T-shirts, vests, underwear, pyjama bottoms and our personal favourite: long johns! Stylish long johns are long overdue and the Beckham design features a cotton waffle pattern to help us get through the cold winter months.
We could however, do without the detailed campaign shots of his package, but this should make our female readers happy—not that we’re jealous or anything.
The conversation in our house last night:
MG: “Is Beckham’s package really that big?” (MG squints and moves her face a few inches from the screen.)
CH: “No! They pump it up to look that way!”
