So is it acceptable to wear a football shirt/kit? A form of this question has been asked this week, and answered, in a manner of speaking, by Guardian fashion journalist Hadley Freeman (me neither). The World Cup's on - it's silly season, where mainstream journalists talk rubbish about something they know nothing about.
Ms Freeman actually starts out ok, identifying that the wearing of football shirts is often (nay, generally) to denote affiliation or leaning. Yes, it can be used to create a sense of community, Hadley, but also to differentiate oneself from others.
