London: David Beckham will launch a range of designer long johns.

"David is 36 and knows he won`t be playing soccer forever. But he`s an icon for men all over the world and he wears pants like no one can - so it makes sense for him to launch his own," quoted a source as saying.

The 36-year-old, who signed a deal to create his own collection of underwear earlier this year after starring in an advertising campaign for Emporio Armani men`s briefs, will launch the range in February next year.
