Recently, a picture of the Iranian World Cup team went viral on Twitter, for obvious reasons. 

I suddenly found myself interested in watching soccer. 

But then I confirmed that it's not what these pro athletes are flaunting on the field I'm so interested in, but rather their fashion game off-duty that's so intriguing. 

Vivienne Westwood and other designers around the globe have designed beautiful apparel for consumers for the World Cup, like tees and sweatshirts, but I'm more interested in going directly to the source.

Takeaway from his style:
