If you live in the U.K. then you’ll be no stranger to the opinion that, when it comes to clothes, footballers have more money than taste - a lot of money. And before you default to David Beckham in the comments, let us not forget this outfit. Yes, footballers have a pretty straightforward mantra when it comes to getting dressed: expensive. So it makes perfect sense that Harvey Nichols Manchester, home to Manchester United and Manchester City, should have a secret Twitter account for their most exclusive customers, giving them the first look at their latest arrivals.
The elite @HN_VIP_MANC account has only 80 followers and is private – which is very important to Manchester City player Joleon Lescott. The footballer told The Sunday Times that “the element of exclusivity is key, as you don't always want to be wearing something everyone else has on." You said it, Lescott, can you imagine? What. A. Nightmare.
The Telegraph divulged that Givenchy and Gucci are most popular with the followers, and revealed that one stylist claimed wearing the right labels "makes them look like a better footballer." Oh, dear. We can’t wait to see what Man U wear at their next night out on the town. We really hope it looks like this. (The Telegraph)
