I love this, but you will need to move fast to get the limited edition Napoli sweater by Trickett.
It’s the work of Trickett, who I have featured before when they remade the 1960s waffle cardigans. That’s pretty much their thing. Limited runs, one-off designs, something with a vintage angle but not always.
All of their designs are made in small numbers in the UK and many sell out quickly as a result. This one is slightly different because you get to pre-order if you get your name down within the window. After that, it’s a case of getting them made and sent out.
Getting what made? Well, the jumper/sweater above, which is the first instalment in the label’s ‘jumpers for goalposts’ collection, which celebrates everything that is wool and football-related.
The Napoli is inspired by a jumper the man behind Trickett saw worn by an Ultra circa 1989 in a documentary, presumably homemade.
It has Italian flag cuffs, hem and neck, the massive ’N’ in the middle and the azure colour. As for the design, it has a slightly higher neck than a normal crew neck jumper, which pays homage to the cycling jerseys of the 1950s. It also has a raglan sleeve and is made of 100 per cent British wool. Warmth guaranteed.
If you want to pre-order, you can do that now for the price of £85.
Note that the pre-order for the Napoli sweater ends at 12pm on 21st February 2020.
