Ironically, it’s only when the cricket season ends that these come into their own. I’m talking about the classic cricket vests by Real Hoxton.
It’s all about layering up. Ok, you might need to layer up a bit during a typical British summer. But it’s really over the autumn and winter that the layers are a daily necessity. And if you are going to do it, you might as well do it whilst looking good.
And these do look good. The cricket jumper in mainstream fashion isn’t a new idea. If you have £200 spare, Lacoste will sell you one in its current range. If you don’t and happen to be looking for something sleeveless and far more affordable, have a look here.
Take your pick from three classic looks, the only difference being the choice of trim. I’ve absolutely no idea if the colours correspond to a particular club or country, but they look like they should. Feel free to correct me if you know more.
Each one is handmade from 100 per cent Pima cotton and is cable knitted with 4 gauge needles for ‘simultaneous warmth and ventilation’.
It’s just one of those things that’s great for slipping on when the temperatures drop, especially if you are going for an ivy league or preppy look.
And, as I said, cheaper than many out there, which is one of the ‘pulls’ of the Real Hoxton label. £80 in pretty much any size you want.
