Oopsy Daisy: Adidas Make Fair Old Gaffe With New Manchester United Retro Track Jacket (Photo)

By all accounts, Adidas are doing a roaring trade with their new line of retro Manchester United clobber, with the 1980s-flavoured collection taking style pointers from the last time the German sportswear giants were responsible for designing United’s kits.

The latest addition to the range is the ‘1985 track jacket’ – a smart looking thing if ever there was.

However, Adidas have managed to make one small, but fairly crucial gaffe in their promo for the jacket – and it’s not the fact that they’re charging £65 for something that looks like it’s been retrieved from an old box in Ron Atkinson’s loft.

If we magnify the photo of the model on the official online store, you might just be able to spot it…


Chelsea sweatpants. Bugger.

Unsurprisingly, the page has since been stripped from the internet.

Thankfully, screenshots last forever.

    Ok Mr. Model, we have 10 of these bastards to go through so hurry up, take that Chelsea jacket off and put this United one on.

    “But what about the…”

    TIME EQUALS MONEY, MR. MODEL. Now hurry up.

    I don’t see what the big deal is. I thought all Chelsea fans were closet United fans.

    Most of the buyers in the market for this sort of thing probably own Chelsea, United, City and Arsenal gear already. Probably even a dreaded half&half shirt too.
