SHEARER & LAWRENSON SHIRT TRAVESTY
DOUBLE RED CARD FROM THE STYLE REFEREE
-Two appalling yet remarkably different shirts on M.O.T.D. Quite bad scene-
Frankly shocked to witness the Match Of The Day shirt disaster on Saturday night. Been looking for a better picture, but this is it for now. Two millionaire 'presenters' fully aware they were to be on the television in front of viewers still made the decision to wear these shirts. Remarkable. What can they have been thinking. Surely it was a pact? Alan Shearer's futuristic Special Constable uniform featuring epaulettes and contrast grey marl breast pocket flaps was an unwise choice for a man wholooks like Old Bill at the best of times. The resulting visual? 'Ambivalent Police Cadet from the year 2042'. Meanwhile, Mark Lawrenson's mint satin Preppy fusion affair was an abhorrence, replete with disco button-down topstitching. How did no one intervene? The effect of sheeny, clingy 'shirting' on Lawro's dilapidated frame evoked aging Bull-Dyke at civil ceremony. Alarming primetime shirt miss-carriage leaves both presenters suspended pending enquiry in which Gary Lineker is to give evidence with sartorial impunity.
Why do they not have them wear suits? It would be considerably more dignified. That Jamie Redknapp manages to dress just fine.
