Arsenal have announced Cavallaro Napoli will be their Official Formal Wear Partner for the next two years.
As reported on Arsenal.com, the Gunners have entered a partnership with the Dutch Italian fashion house who will dress the Arsenal staff for matchdays and other official functions.
The players donned the new suits before they took on Chelsea last Sunday in the Community Shield. The suit jacket will feature the club’s historical crest embroidered in Arsenal red.
As shown, the club suits are navy wool and of a slim single-breasted style. They come with a white cotton shirt, red silk tie and brown leather accessories. There’s also a a fine knit cardigan in grey melange.
Cavallaro Napoli will also provide special limited edition items for supporters throughout the season.
The partnership is a mutually beneficial one, as Arsenal get to look good in exchange for helping Cavallaro Napoli expand their appeal and customer base using the football clubl’s global reach.
Arsenal seem to be one of the few sides around with an official suit provider, and we have to say how smart the players looked before the Community Shield.
Speaking about the deal, Arsenal’s chief commercial officer Vinai Venkatesham said: “We are delighted to welcome Cavallaro Napoli to the club as our Official Formal Wear Partner.
“As a brand, it has enjoyed huge growth since its inception in 2004 and is well known for its true craftsmanship, using the finest fabrics for its suits to ensure uncompromising quality.
“We will now help introduce its tailoring to a new audience through our global channels. We’re looking forward to working together, with players and staff sporting a stylish and unified appearance as we head into a new season.”
