Made to Match: Dunhill for Japan's national football team, Samurai Blue
Suit and score
Alfred Dunhill has kitted Japan's national football team in their official off-field wardrobe since 2000 when their collaborative relationship with the Japanese Football Association began. From windowpane checks to a solid, deep royal blue, the brand has ensured that the Samurai Blue never looked a stitch short of stylish when off the green. And the latest offering is no exception.
The most recent colloboration, Made to Match, is a play on words for made-to-measure, which refers to Dunhill's Custom Order program through which the suits are tailored. Their latest navy pinstripe getup — a symbol of pride, confidence and comfort — marks new manager Vahid Halilhodžić's helm of the team, and also the team's representation of their country on the world stage at the upcoming 2018 World Cup hosted by Russia.
While it's a different ball game when it comes to attire on the green, Dunhill definitely more than makes the cut for a sophisticated and empowering off-field ensemble.
