Julian Nagelsmann (36), the new national coach, got off to a successful start. Not only did his DFB team impress in the 3-1 win against the USA in Hartford, but also their contemporary outfit. On the sidelines he wore a striking, loose-fitting lumberjack shirt in light blue. Underneath he combined a black shirt, black trousers and white sneakers. Nagelsmann has now announced that the shirt will be auctioned off for a good cause.
In an interview with the “Bild” newspaper, he said: “I won’t wear it again because I have agreed to auction it off for a good cause.” The shirt will be made available for the RTL telethon. Nagelsmann will be wearing a new outfit for the game against Mexico (Wednesday, October 18th, 2 a.m.). In general, he obviously wasn’t happy with the hype surrounding his look: “There was a bit too much fanfare about it.”
Julian Nagelsmann’s flannel shirt costs several hundred euros
Shortly after the final whistle, the lumberjack shirt was the subject of interviews. Nagelsmann received a lot of praise from the journalists on site: “I liked it too, that’s why I wore it, thank you,” he himself commented on his outfit. It was a good idea from the outfitter. Even his player Thomas Müller (34) made a comment when asked about it. He would also wear a shirt like that at any time; he even has “several of them in the closet.”
Striker partner Niclas Füllkrug (30) cleverly avoided the question about his boss’s look at the DFB and only said that he didn’t want to judge Nagelsmann by his clothes. Even the opposing coach Gregg Berhalter (50), no stranger in Germany due to his long-term positions at Energie Cottbus and TSV 1860 Munich, had to be asked a question about his counterpart’s outfit. His answer: “His outfit. Oh my God.”
Julian Nagelsmann’s checked flannel shirt comes from a collection by the official DFB fashion partner Van Laack and is available for 309.95 euros.
