This tie is from the 2004/05 Champions League. That one, yeah—the one with Istanbul and Luis Garcia, and AC Milan caving in on themselves like one of those chocolate bomb desserts, Liverpool—the hot caramel sauce poured all over the Rossoneri by Rafa Benitez’s strategic hands.

It’s navy blue, with royal blue and white Champions League star detailing all over, but not in an obnoxious way—it’s smart enough for a fancy dinner, and only people who are in the know are going to notice you’re wearing a piece of football history. Like a little secret club. A wink and a nudge. A subtle nod. A Champions League tie.
