But he’ll be sporting a Pablo Cuban knit polo made by London fashion house Percival, as the Three Lions get back in action.

He topped £109 on his debut in warm-up matches.

But fans online love the vests, with one calling the new outfit a “sartorial trustee.”

One Twitter user said: “Who wore Gareth Southgate’s clothes? Is he wearing a polo shirt, shirt or pajama under that cheap suit?”

Another added: “Just catching up on Gareth Southgate’s blue polo shirt with a light gray suit and a no-belt sartorial travesti. Hope it doesn’t catch on like a waistcoat.”

Some were curious though, saying they were “delighted to see Gareth Southgate adopting my suit-and-polo-shirt at Touchline this evening”.
