Story of the tracksuit:
Life. It’s full of perennially unanswered questions: is there anything after death? How far does the dark expanse of space stretch? What the hell is a ‘smart-casual’ dress code? One of these endless conundrums has now been solved. So call off that trip to John Lewis: this Real Madrid 96/97 tracksuit – and to be clear it is a suit – is perfect for the smart-casual vibes at Great Uncle Brian’s silver wedding anniversary next weekend. To be fair to Raúl, Suker, Roberto Carlos et al, the 96/97 Madrid side were the definition of smart-casual, nonchalantly knocking the ball around with a whip-smart football intelligence that won them La Liga, all whilst donning this incredible Kelme pre-match tracksuit. Shiny, brilliant and with exotic flashes of purple, if this isn’t good enough for Great Uncle Bri, it’s time to divorce your family.
