David Beckham is following the footsteps of his wife Victoria, who’s now pretty much a fully-fledged designer in New York, and turning his hand to design himself – but instead of sportswear, which is what we’d expect the guy to be designing, he’s actually designing underwear after appearing in a campaign for Emporio Armani briefs.
And you thought he’d be designing the same kinds of tighty-whities he’s always seen smouldering in on billboards, you’re wrong – he’s actually designing old fashioned long-johns. Apparently David Beckham looooves a pair of old-school grandpa-style long johns! Who the hell knew!
When explaining his unusual choice of design for the new collection, David said: “I sometimes wear them to go to sleep. They’re very cool.” Bless him.
A source close to David spoke out about the footballer’s new underwear plans: “David is 35 and knows he won’t be playing soccer forever. But he’s an icon for men all over the world and he wears pants like no one can – so it makes sense for him to launch his own.”
Well, we’re glad that Victoria is around to help him out with his designs and try to sex up long-johns a little bit. We don’t want all our boyfriends to follow suit and start going to bed looking like our grandpa.
