In his short time as Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood has made the gilet his own. During his side's defeat to north London rivals Arsenal last Sunday, he even went as far as throwing the sleeveless jacket down the White Hart Lane tunnel in frustration.

The item of clothing more synonymous with rowers in west London than gaffers in north London is by no means the first piece of clothing or notable accessory to find itself associated with a particular manager.

So from chewing gum and green jumpers to toothpicks and cigarettes, we take a look at some memorable items...

Sherwood will be in Benfica tonight where it's expected the Gilet will make it's latest appearance.
