"Normal People" star Paul Mescal sported a pair of GAA shorts alongside a €10,000 fleece for a photoshoot with fashion magazine GQ. 

The brown fleece, called a pullover, is designed by French high-end luxury clothing company Hermès is on the market for a cool €9,950. 

Mescal, who rose to prominence as Connell in the popular mini-series, sported a pair of €25 Kildare GAA in an unusual juxtaposition of Irish sporting clothes and high-end fashion. 

The fashion shoot has caused something of a stir on social media, with fans divided over whether Mescal pulled the look off or not. 

Kildare GAA capitalized on the newfound appeal of what are ordinarily just a pair of white sports shorts. 

In a post on Twitter, Kildare GAA encouraged fans to buy a pair of "vintage shorts" as an ideal stocking filler for Christmas time.

Mescal also spoke to GQ for the November issue of the magazine about the sexualization of Connell's chain in "Normal People".

The chain has become a star in its own right since Normal People exploded onto the scene and an Instagram devoted to the chain has amassed more than 180,000 followers. 

"I think there has been a kind of leaning on the sexualising of it, which has been a little bit difficult to adjust to," Mescal told GQ. 

‘I don’t really have a response to it, because I don’t know what to say other than it’s a chain, and it’s a chain that’s referenced in the book, and it’s a chain that Connell wears.
