Lionel Messi and Barcelona model travel suits by Thom Browne ahead of Tottenham game
Barcelona have entered into a partnership with Thom Browne that will see the U.S. fashion designer supply the squad with travelling suits for their European away trips this season.
Indeed, the agreement will see Browne become the official provider of Barca's "off-field tailored fits and formal-wear uniforms" for the next three years.
Lionel Messi and the rest of the team debuted their svelte new gear on Tuesday as they prepared to fly to London for Wednesday night's Champions League tie against Tottenham.Messi's look in particular has not gone unnoticed with compatriot Sergio Aguero and former Barca teammate Neymar commenting on his dapper look. Aguero jokingly wrote on Instagram: "But how beautiful..." while Neymar went further and wrote: "I never saw you so handsome."
According to GQ magazine, Browne is the "architect of the shrunken suit jacket and above-the-ankle trouser," which might well explain the shrunken suit jacket and above-the-ankle trousers being sported by a slightly dishevelled Messi.
Browne is also responsible for dressing LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers when they stepped out in matching grey suits ahead of the NBA finals.
Sharp. Very, very sharp. LeBron definitely wore it better.
