In a further nod to our childhood, the poplin number even has ‘Class of 2029’ scrawled across the back – a sartorial homage to year six.

The shirt debuted during the SS19 collections at Paris Fashion Week in a runway show inspired by creative director Demna Gvasalia’s youth.

But this isn’t a George at ASDA special, as the garment comes with a £790 price tag.

Not something you could bag with your pocket money, huh?

Though this hasn’t stopped it from proving a hit with high fashion followers, as the shirt is already proving a major sell-out with limited sizes available online.

Of course, this should come as no surprise to the industry as Gvsalia can just about tempt the street style set into wearing anything he sets his mind to.

Remember when he famously convinced us to spend £185 on a DHL t-shirt?
