It must be pretty iconic to be raised by both a football legend and pop music icon. Paying homage to his parents, Romeo Beckham has honoured one of his dad's most iconic style eras - the Beckham buzz cut - by rocking a knitted sweater emblazoned with his dad's face. 

On Saturday, the 21-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham took to Instagram to show off a new addition to his knitwear collection. He rocked one of HighSnobiety's £450 KNITWRTH sweaters, the 'Becks Knit Sweater Multi,' which, as the name suggests, features an all-over graphic of his mum and dad. 

The front of Romeo's cloud-blue knitwear was emblazoned with a print of his dad David from 2001 when he was the face of Adidas’ |"I Kiss Football" campaign. In the shot, the sporting legend rocks sunglasses and an "I Kiss Football" sweatshirt while using a suitably retro flip phone.

The back features another throwback photo, this time a candid of David and Victoria both rocking tiny sunglasses while the (shirtless) football pro blows bubbles.

Selfridges, which sells the limited edition knit, said of the design: "A player who ascended beyond football and reached the status of cultural icon, Beckham now finds himself on the front (and back) of the latest piece from Highsnobiety. 

This cotton jumper has been plucked from the rails of the label's newest 'Not In' collection and is a fitting tribute to one of the beautiful game's original heartthrobs.

"Copying his dad's memorable noughties 'heartthrob' era, Romeo followed in his dad's buzzcut footsteps as he sported a new super-short haircut. After rocking a head of curls just days before, the Beckham mini-me clearly took inspiration from his dad's most memorable haircut. 

"It's like you copy and pasted," commented a fan on Instagram, noticing the likeness between the Beckham boys.

"Mooch and I have parted ways after five years of love, we still have a lot of love and respect for each other, and still hold a strong friendship and always will," Romeo told his followers.
