Paul Smith to design outstanding outfits for MANUTD team

British designer Paul Smith has teamed up with Manchester United Football Club to design and supply the team players with formal wear and accessories for the next three years. This is the first time that Manchester United has entered into such a partnership.

"It is exciting to be involved with Manchester United, they have such an international fan base and I know that our customers in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, in fact all South East Asia, Europe and the U.S. will be interested in this partnership. And hopefully it might help me get a ticket to a match now!" Paul Smith

"The outfits are outstanding. This is a Club with a rich heritage and one that has a clear sense of identity. Sir Paul has recognised that, while providing clothing that will be the envy of every other Club." Sir Alex Ferguson

Paul Smith will supply Manchester United playing staff and officials for all domestic matches, European Cup campaign and pre-season tours. The first designs will be worn in June 2008 to the European Cup Final in Moscow.

"We were very privileged to be asked to make the suits; the suit is a two button slim navy 100% mohair with specially designed lining with red panels and striped piping. The team crest has been made from gold and silver thread and is sewn to the top pocket to give a club blazer feel.

As we are famous for stripes we decided on a tie with diagonal stripes in optimistic colours, designed exclusively for the team.

It is worn with a white shirt and we have made a special belt which has the crest printed inside on the tip. Finally, we have supplied luggage for the team in a striped fabric inspired by traditional English suiting."

"I was also asked to make another special suit for their trip to Moscow; a lightweight grey wool/mohair suit will be worn with a pale blue shirt and striped tie. It has a special red panelled lining with striped piping matching the stripe of the tie."

The Players, Coaching Staff and Board Directors will be travelling to and from Moscow in the Grey Cup Final suits whilst all other staff will be wearing the new official Navy suits.
