World Cup excitement has reached fever pitch across M&S and we’re all willing the team to keep the magnificent run going against Croatia tonight.

“England has reached the semi-finals and we couldn’t be more delighted,” said David, our Head of Menswear Buying. We are, of course, ‘Official Tailor to the England Team’ and David added: “Some are saying that THE waistcoat has been bringing the team extra luck, so we launched National Waistcoat Day on Saturday and we defeated Sweden in the quarter-finals.

C’mon England – let’s hope they bring it home.

It’s a sentiment being echoed by colleagues in our stores, at our head offices and in our distribution centres. And many have taken to wearing the waistcoat, although not always with the smart shirt and tie that Mr Southgate wears on the touchline. Here’s a pic from a photoshoot we held at our Waterside Head Office – at M&S we don’t miss a chance to have some fun and a bit of a party!

You can do it tonight, boys – so let’s make it #WaistcoatWednesday!
