Villa stars show sense of style off the pitch with Harvey Nichols

Villa players proved they were just as stylish off the pitch as on it when they unveiled their latest team suits.

The players appeared on the home turf of Villa Park in their chic new outfits before beating Wigan Athletic 2-0 later that afternoon.

Gabby Agbonlahor sat still for the photoshoot before standing and delivering a match-winning performance over the Latics.

Thanks to luxury store Harvey Nichols, the team have been kitted out in debonair Paul Smith suits to guarantee a great-looking arrival at home and away matches.

Each member of the squad has been supplied with a specially selected navy blue suit made by one of the country's most iconic fashion brands.

The club's stars also showed off their new tie, designed in collaboration between Villa and Harvey Nichols.

It provides a modern take on the classic claret and blue stripe.

Kevin Breese, general manager of Harvey Nichols at The Mailbox, said: "We have been working closely with Aston Villa, supplying their official team suits for the last six years and are delighted to continue that partnership into 2012.

"This high profile fashion collaboration strengthens our relationship with such a fantastic club and highlights the fact that Harvey Nichols remains the number one choice for the leading sportsmen in the region."
