The man known as the best dressed manager in football (maybe the world) had a situation today. This is what is known in the industry as a wardrobe malfunction.
While Bayern Munich were absolutely destroying Porto in the second leg of their Champions League match, the camera person found out that Pep had a rip in his trousers.
This isn’t a good thing.
I’m currently efforting on the internet to find out who Pep’s tailor is and a ballpark range for his suits. I’m sure he is rocking pieces that are in the $3k* starting out range. Those kinds of trousers and suits shouldn’t be ripping.
Other interesting thing, and this is something that Beans and I talk about all the time, have you ever noticed how well dress football managers are? Especially when you compare them to coaches and managers in other sports?
Rare is the soccer guy who is wearing a bad suit? Some guys are kitted up A LOT better than others, but even the worst dressed guy on the touchline looks better than the best manager in baseball. These 50 and 60 years old guys are wearing baseball uniforms for crying out loud.
Football guys look like they are taking a sweatshirt off of the dirty clothes pile. Did you know that they have a rule where the head football coach CAN’T wear a suit!!! Its true, check it out.
Basketball guys are pretty clean actually, but a lot of them are try hards.
There will be a few jokes and a ton of posts on the internet today about Peps trousers, but I’m ok with it. The man wears a good suit and every once in a while stuff like this happens.
* $3k is low. Hopefully I’m not insulting Pep and his clothier. I can imagine that there isn’t anything in his closet less than 5 grr.
* Right now I am tentatively going with Antonio Miró, a Catalan designer that Pep is good friends with.
