SPORTSMEN David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo will soon be receiving some competition in the field of smart attire with the announcement that leading Thai brand Jaspal Man is kitting out the entire Thai national football team in outfits for both formal and casual wear.
The new threads are taken from Jaspal Man’s Autumn-Winter collection and, says Viseth Singhsachathet, the brand’s assistant managing director, are guaranteed to make our lads stand out as they travel to World Cup qualifying tournaments.
“Our national football team players comprise young athletes who are determined, success-oriented and possess specific skill sets. That makes them compatible with the character of the Jaspal Man brand, which focuses on men who are independent and successful. The new look will allow everyone in the team to be smart, handsome, and cool,” Viseth says.
“The clothes are comfortable and can be interchangeably used, or mixed and matched, to create new styles for different purposes. Our athletes travel frequently hence the clothing must address functionality and style at the same time.
“The ‘formal look’ is for when our athletes travel to compete in World Cup qualifying tournament, or attend social functions. They’ll look at their best in our double-breasted black suits teamed with white shirts boasting a light horizontal pattern. We are also fitting them with black slacks that go well with the shirts or with tailored Polo and Cardigan coats. Belts, shoes and sunglasses finish the look,” he explains.
“The casual look is suitable for various occasions and encompasses v-shaped white T-shirts made from quality fabric, black slacks and semi-casual blazers. The tees can also be worn with Jogger slacks or with our new line of black jeans, which boast unique detailing on the back leather pockets.”
