GARETH Southgate is hanging up his waistcoat for the Euros — in favour of a pyjama-style polo shirt.

The England boss, 50, became an unlikely trend-setter at the 2018 World Cup, sending sales of the blue M&S garment up by 35 per cent.

But he will sport a Pablo Cuban Knit polo made by London fashion house Percival as the Three Lions leap into action again.

He gave the £109 top its debut in the warm-up matches.

But fans online prefer the waistcoat with one calling the new outfit a “sartorial travesty”.

One Twitter user said: “Who dressed Gareth Southgate? Is he wearing a polo shirt, a shirt or pyjamas under that cheap suit?”

Another added: “Just catching up on Gareth Southgate’s blue polo shirt with light grey suit and no belt sartorial travesty. Hope to god this doesn’t catch on like the waistcoats did.”

However some were keen, saying they were “delighted to see Gareth Southgate is adopting my suit-and-polo-shirt chic on the touchline this evening”.
