Manchester United today completed their off the pitch apparel for their Champions League final next Wednesday. When the club jet off for Rome, they will be arriving as smart as ever in their custom made suites, designed by none other then, Sir Paul Smith, a lifelong United fan and the man who was responsible for last seasons suits worn to Moscow and back.

Manchester United was voted as the best dressed team in Europe a few months back, and they’ll continue the tradition for Rome. Sir Alex has always believed in having a smartly dressed team for occasions like this and the results below don’t disappoint.

The suits consist of,

“Prince of Wales check trousers and jacket in pale grey featuring a peaked lapel. The inside of the suits bears special red-panelled lining with striped piping, identical to that on the tie. A white shirt, black leather belt and shoes” –

For the pictures, Sir Paul paid a special visit to Carrington to see the players suited and booted. While he was at the training camp, he spoke to,

"It’s amazing to have designed another Champions League final suit and a privilege to be involved with Sir Alex and the players," remarked Sir Paul  "I was very proud to see the squad wearing the suits in Moscow and I’ll be equally excited to see them in Rome.

"Unfortunately I can’t make the game because of work, but I will at least be in Italy, in Florence following every minute. It was fantastic to see the team win the cup last season and hopefully it’ll be the same result again in Rome."
