The Independent reviews a book by Paolo Hewitt and Mark Baxter that looks at the evolution of fashion in football (soccer):

Little more than a decade ago, a book about football and fashion would have been incongruous and flimsy: some pictures of perms and mullets, and a few words on John Barnes’s more unusual jackets, perhaps. But with the formation of the Premiership came an influx of money, and of stylish, continental players.
