Liam Gallagher has done more for the cagoule than anyone else during his 15-year stint scowling at crowds from stages across the globe.
So I’m not entirely surprised to learn that the bellowing Burnage boy is going into the rag trade.
The dapper Oasis frontman is launching his very own clothing range and has called it Pretty Green in tribute to his favourite track by Mod rockers The Jam.
And in his typically outspoken style, lippy Liam is magnificently blunt about why he has decided to branch out.
He said: “The reason I’m doing it is I like clothes. We’re going to do clothes I like. If people like it, cool. If they don’t, they don’t.”
The limited menswear range will feature everything a Jack the lad could want.
It will include classic designs across footwear, denim, knitwear, jackets, trench coats, parkas, T-shirts, hats, scarves and accessories.
And the frontman is taking a hands-on approach to his new range.
He added: “If you’re going to do it, you’ve got to get involved. I’m looking forward to it. I think it’s going to be good.”
The collection is due to hit select shops in June.
Liam and Noel inspired an army of teenage lads over the last 14 years to have the same barnet, sideburns and clobber.
But not all of Liam’s threads have caught on.
The John MotsonO-style sheepskin coat he wore to the Brits in ’96 was a sweaty reminder of the band’s over-indulgence at the time.
And the leopardskin slip-on shoes he’s showing off at the moment went down a treat with my gran.
I doubt you’ll see many lads at The City Of Manchester Stadium wearing them this season though.
