Get shirty – dress to impress in England football shirts

Get shirty – dress to impress in England football shirts

Football? I’m afraid as a lifelong Boro fan, I kicked the habit before I had kids. Just couldn’t take the heartache anymore! So now that World Cup fever has started to grip the nation, am I getting a tingle of excitement? Of course I am, we’re talking fit blokes running around in shorts – what’s not to like about that?!

Seriously and surprisingly, I AM actually looking forward to the World Cup. It all started with a trip to the dentist. Mortified that my 6 year old needed 2 fillings in milk teeth (I’m blaming both grans for being soft with sweets!) anyway, we decided pocket money was better spent on Panini stickers during the World Cup at least.

So here I am; first blog, wall chart hastily blue tacked to the living room wall, the whole spiel about “it only happens every 4 years, everyone in the country goes crazy for it, England haven’t won since before mummy was born and how to do swaps at school” all explained and I’ve got the bug, so I started to look around for some gear to get us in the mood!

First off, I spotted these England inspired South football tops that are trendy enough for a night out with the girls teamed with skinny jeans and strappy heels.

Of course, if he gets his way, he’d like to spend the World Cup looking like a pro footballer in this Umbro England 2010 Limited Edition Away Shirt. But I’ve got my eye on some of the more casual looks from brands like Ben Sherman, Ted Baker, Henleys and Animal all perfect for a night in front of the TV then off down the pub to relive every moment with his mates.

I like this World Cup inspired hoody for the newly sticker-mad Miss 6. It goes from age 2/3 up to 15, so it’s really wearable and fab if you have a whole team of girls to kit out. And how adorable is this outfit for your youngest England fan? Be warned it could leave you feeling all broody!

For teenagers, I reckon it has to be this year’s England away shirt, especially as you can personalise it with a name and number like say, Rooney 10 – how cool is that? Or if you’re after a subtle take on World Cup style for dads and lads, I just love this classic Fred Perry cotton polo shirt with England 2010 embroidery on the chest. Perfect with smart going out jeans.

So that’s a bit of clothes shopping sorted – when’s the first kick-off?

    Kevin, you’re right. You can’t make a Yojimbo type character. This is actually interesting as I’m unsure if you could make that type of character for any RPG. Sanjuro is a blank slate, to let the viewers put themselves in his place, I think. To me it seems to be making a statement (anti-war?) to Japanese people. To do that you need to put yourself into the character. He’s making judgements in your place of an overdramatic town. I could be wrong about that, but his lack of history is important to the movie.
