We love our Irish men. And to hand it to them, some do follow up-to-date fashion and style… But then, some do not

Guys may be able to get away with these things on a third or fourth date; but on a first date, these things are a definite no-no: 

1. Bootcut jeans and dress shoes

Who are you trying to look like, Billy Ray Cyrus? And if you're going to wear bootcut jeans, wear them with boots as god and denim manufacturers intended. 

 

2. Workout shirts

We get it. You workout. And while this is great, there's no need to wear a sweaty gym shirt to our date. Gross. 

 

3. Over-sized polo shirt

This is another shirt that is just not OK. A polo shirt is fine, but an over-sized one makes you look like you want to be from the gansta town… even though you're from a very posh side of South Dublin. 

 

4. Your favourite team's jersey

We totally applaud your devotion to your favourite team, but we're on a date, so maybe the jersey can sit out. 

 

5. Runners

Just wear nice shoes, please. 

 

6. DIRTY runners

Even worse than runners are dirty, worn-out, ripped runners. They just look shabby and in the words of Summer Roberts, "Ew!"

 

7. Chains hanging from your trousers

We get you don't want to lose your keys or whatever, but you don't need a metre-long chain hanging from your bum pocket. 

 

8. Weird grandad-style jumpers

We think it's cute you're trying to dress your best, but a grandad jumper isn't going to impress us. Sorry to let you know. 

 

9. Flip flops with jeans

We. Are. Not. In. Spain. 

 

10. Way too much Lynx

Ah, Lynx. The smell of every Irish man. For some reason you guys can't get enough of it. But spraying too much on yourself before a date will not only kill our sense of smell, it'll kill the mood too.

It's already one of the most hotly-anticipated sporting events of the year, and the rugby world cup is now just two months away.

Taking place in England from September 18 to October 31, Ireland will be expected to perform well – emerging top of Pool D, a group which also boasts fellow Six Nations teams France and Italy.

And at least now we know what the boys in green will be wearing: Canterbury, which is making the jersey for the first time since 2007, officially unveiled its design this morning in Galway.

The jersey is simple and classic – and has a striking similarity to the England jersey (probably because they're both made by Canterbury).

There is also a white trim around the neck and no collar.

The Irish rugby team is currently ranked third in the world behind New Zealand and South Africa.

Our best result in a world cup is still the quarter finals stage; we've made it that far five times, most recently in 2011 when the tournament was held in New Zealand.

National Football League player Michael Sam has thanked One Direction star Harry Styles for his support after he performed in his jersey.

Harry was singing on stage in St Louis, Missouri, when he wore Michael's Rams blue and yellow shirt with his name and number on the back.

When Michael, who became the first openly gay man drafted into the NFL, caught wind of what Harry was wearing, he hit Twitter to thank him for his support.

The St. Louis Rams also tweeted a shot of Harry wearing the jersey on stage at the band's show.

Earlier this week, a US TV outlet was forced to release a statement saying it regretted a controversial report that discussed the showering habits of Michael and whether he was avoiding the shower when teammates were present.

Back in March, the 24-year-old broke down in tears as he was told he had been drafted to the St Louis Rams in the NFL draft, becoming the first openly gay player in the league’s history.
