We are living in strange times - it's stranger still that face masks designed to prevent the spread of coronavirus could be seen as a fashion statement.
But then you know footballers. Anything to look good.
With the government making it law from July 24 that masks must be worn in shops to combat that pesky COVID-19, you're going to have to stock up. Why not take the opportunity to do as the Premier League do?
Here are our picks for turning an ordinary big shop into the chance to pretend you're arriving at Old Trafford for a behind-closed-doors fixture.
Liverpool face mask
You might not be able to actually go along to the presentation of the Premier League trophy at Anfield, but that doesn't mean you can't feel like one of Jurgen Klopp's side.
This Liverpool face mask is simple but a great way to show you're a true fan of this year's Premier League champions.
Adidas face mask
This mask is as well-made, simple and classy as you'd expect from the German giants. You can picture Messi putting one of these bad boys on, couldn't you?
They come in packs of three, and are machine-washable, so you can always have one on your person. The masks are also made with recycled materials, so you're not only stopping the spread of a lethal virus, you're also saving the world. Get you.
Nike Strike snood
Nike's face mask is pretty low-key. This is a pandemic after all - we can't be having it with volt-green flashes, now can we?
But this is quite special: specifically designed for playing sport in, you can wear this for your five-a-side, while the grill over the mouth is made so you can still communicate with your team-mates with ease.
When Autumn and Winter roll back around, this is exactly the kind of protection you want: it'll keep you warm and keep you safe.
Machine-washable and adjustable, you'll get a lot of use out of these.
Manchester United retro face mask
Manchester United have had some lush kits over the years - just don't mention the grey debacle away to Southampton.
For our money though, the jagged blue and white pattern of the early '90s is the most iconic. Viva Fergie's United, with this mask.
Machine-washable, reusable – and money off for buying more than one. You can make sure you're never without a mask, or kit out the whole family in classic United garb. Face masks, bloody hell.
Reebok face mask
Just with Adidas and Nike, this Reebok mask is simple enough.
Reebok don't sponsor many clubs anymore but they still make excellent gear – and if you're looking to evoke some nostalgia of Chile and Bolton Wanderers (you might be, you never know), now you know where to go.
These come in packs of three – making them cheaper per mask than many others here – and are machine-washable. Made with a breathable fabric, you can work out in one of these without it affecting your performance.
Literally any football club badge face masks
Not seen your club yet? Fear not.
Luckily, there's always someone on the internet ready to stick a badge on the product of your choosing. This eBay seller is making masks on demand for fans of Bayern Munich, Juventus Tottenham, West Ham, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester City, Barcelona, Liverpool, Arsenal, Real Madrid – or any club badge available on request.
Now you too can rep Accrington Stanley with pride on a trip to the shops.
Handmade, washable, reusable, and some of the cheapest on the market.
Arsenal "bruised banana" face mask
Gooners out there - need we explain?
Arsenal fans have this pattern on phone cases, T-shirts, phone backgrounds – and it's even been adapted for the away kit this year (imagine!). It's as woven into the club as the gold trophy and rumours about Mesut Ozil's future. It looks good on a mask, we have to say.
While you’re here, why not subscribe to the mag - just £9.99 for the first six months, over £38 cheaper than buying it in the shops!
