The Scottish Football Association revealed a two-year deal with retailer Marks & Spencer to kit out Scotland over the course of the World Cup 2010 qualifying campaign. 

M&S Braehead has provided more than 70 suits to employees of the Scottish Football Association, including coaches, managers and administration staff.

The Scotland squad will be wearing the suits on all national team business, including in Iceland tonight.

 According to the Scotland manager, skill and fitness aside, Scotland's success as a team also depends on this season's tailoring.  

"Looking good and feeling good are crucial to success, so the players really appreciate the gesture by M&S and absolutely love the suits," said the Scotland manager.

"It's key that we arrive in style and hopefully make a big impression both on and off the pitch. It's great to have such fantastic support from our fans, as well as the staff and customers at our local M&S."

 

Rather than opting for the black one-button suit from the Autograph range for £249, credit crunch restraints may have meant Scotland had to tighten the purse strings and go for the cheaper alternative, the navy three button Performance suit at £149. 

 

In June, Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana created a stylish new wardrobe for the Italian national football team.

 

The squad debuted custom-tailored one-button dark blue suits, classic white shirts and narrow blue silk ties at the 2008 European Cup football tournament. Dolce and Gabbana also designed suits for AC Milan and those worn by the Chinese Olympic football team at last month's Beijing Olympics.

 

The collaboration with the Italy squad was the latest in a line of recent designer makeovers for famed European football teams, including Giorgio Armani for Chelsea FC and Paul Smith for Manchester United.

 

In May this year Smith teamed up with Manchester United Football Club to design and supply the team players with formal wear and accessories for the next three years.

 

Back on the high street, Burton Menswear provided the official England uniform in 1966 as well as Euro 2000 in Belgium and Holland, and at 2002 World Cup in Japan and Korea.

as a toon shirt, this is 1 overcomplicated and 2 useless (We play in Black and white stripes, and it would clash with all the shirts the home kit clashes with.
