Style Icon: George Best

This months Style Icon is in honour of the start of the World Cup.

Although he is hailed as one of the greatest players in football history, George Best never played in a World Cup. He represented Northern Ireland, and they didn’t really feature on the big stage back then. However, if they had a World Cup for Style, he would have taken the Golden Boot.

With his finger firmly on the self-destruct button, Best retired from Manchester United at 27, opened a few fashion boutiques and crawled into a bottle. He was one of the greats.

“I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.”
