I always knew I wanted to include Sir Bobby’s trademark comb-over for any illustration I was going to do of him. So after a bit of thought I came up with this Adidas angle which seemed to be the perfect fit. Especially as the famous three stripes could be made to look like his fly away locks.
But after putting the idea down on paper my inner pedant began to worry… what if he never even wore that brand? So imagine my relief when I discovered that he not only wore them, but endorsed his own brand of Adidas Charlton’s.
With that in mind here’s my take on how a pair of Charltons might have looked. I did toy with a couple of Brain Glover ‘Kes’ references but in the end i think this one will more accessible to the majority of people.
