Fashion Forward: Football Fashion

Hang on - football fashion? Surely a contradiction in terms? Much as I love my Hereford United top, it really does nothing for me:



Makes me look fat and lumpy and shapeless :-(

However, all is not lost! Now that I also support Unseen Academicals, I am able to wear with pride my new fitted t-shirt in their honour! Naturally, being a mathematician myself, my shirt has Stibbons' name and number on the back:



And it's rather more flattering than the HU shirt above!



(By the way, the irony of these photos is not lost on me. Last week I told you how much I dislike having my photo taken; this week I'm showing you close ups of my chest. Oh well.....)

helena said...

yeah Terry Pratchett and Diskworld. Didn't know you could get t-shirts, I know several people who would love one

Amy said...

I was going to say ...., um - that's a lot of you you are showing us for such a shy girl and all ;-)

Heather said...

What???
ok I've just followed your link to Terry Prachets book & I read the description ...... I don't think I shall be reading them. Faaarrr too much work for my brain. I prefer historical fiction - Catherine Cookson et al
Sorry.
Nice shirt btw missus :)

Clair said...

And a lovely chest it is too :)

It's a long time since I read any Terry Pratchett, I may have to pick up some new books - especially if they're likely to inspire new fashion and new 'chest photographing' confidence!!!

Sian said...

I never read Terry Pratchett, but that top is nice!!

Pretty Neat Designs said...

Nice chest! Just kidding, but I couldn't resist. The second T shirt is much more flattering than the first. Amazing what fit can do.

Ruth said...

I'm obviously missing something here?

I feel your pain on the football jerseys. I want a World Cup 2010 shirt, but they all make me look huge!

The Scrappy Tree said...

I got this one for Christmas! Still not read :( but will do soon!

Seriously, your football fashion is MUCH cuter than ours. I've been trying to sort something out for our Super Bowl party and well, not so much.
