England’s new football kit – featuring Kim Cattrall, Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Marina Hyde and – most importantly – Alf Common

While I’m on a sartorial tip, have been watching England v the Netherlands at association football on the television this evening (I’m not really in the mood for an outbreak of weeping, so can’t quite face Kim Cattrall on Who Do You think You Are?).

Pleased to see that young Rooney has resorted to the use of Brylcreem, and that Beckham (not before time)has had a short back and sides.

Though Marina Hyde was a bit sniffy about it in the Guardian when it was launched – Marina Hyde on new England kit, I rather approve of the way they were dressed – slightly reminiscent of – say – Alf Common in his prime – (see below, compare and contrast) –
