Football kits by Ermanno Scervino


Football and fashion have long had a symbiotic relationship, both on and off the field. In the past, Italian duo Dolce & Gabbana tailored the formal club suits for Chelsea FC and cast the Italian national team in its underwear ads, while the England football team has relied on the services of Giorgio Armani for an elegant off-field wardrobe. Official collaborations abound, and lets not forget David Beckham’s Jean Paul Gaultier-sarong clad days. Until the much anticipated Wold Cup in Russia 2018, the Italian National Team will now be outfitted by fashion house Ermanno Scervino, which is based in Grassina in Bagno a Ripoli by Florence.

While their fate on the field is as yet unsealed, goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and co will most likely be the best dressed team of coming years. Founded in 2000 by business mind Toni Scervino and designer Ermanno Scervino, the brand specialises in fine tailoring using luxurious and innovative cloths. For the players, coaches and managers, the design team has created a narrow cut suit in deep classic navy made of lightweight stretch wool and a stretch poplin shirt. The outfit is completed with a matching parka or three button trench coat, its technical fibres of a similar tone. Off the field, muddy trainers and studded soles make way for leather Derby style lace ups, all kept in a dark blue kit bag. While our chances of joining the team are pretty low, we may still dress the part, as Ermanno Scervino release the parka and kit bag this spring. FB
