World Cup Clothes Are All About The Details
German brand Van Laack, best known for luxurious shirts (fitted with buttons that only have three holes), releases a six-piece collection for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
1| The highlight of the limited edition set is a new logo featuring Heinrich, the offical doggo mascot of the label, dressed in a World Cup kit with, of course, a soccer ball under his paw
2| Fun fact: The dog shares the same name the company's founder, Heinrich van Laack, who in 1881, started the clothing company in Berlin with the intention of making the best shirts in the world.

5| The polo shirts, in gray or navy blue, adds an athletic white strip across the shoulders, a detail that gives the illusion of a well-built appearance.
6| Meanwhile, on a white shirt and a white polo shirt, Heinrich is replaced by four stars arrange in an arc. Each star represents a World Cup victory by Germany, who took home top honors in 1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014.
