Is there such a thing as a cricket hooligan? Probably not, but if there was, they might look something like this: Smart Turnout, an English company producing regimental ties, cricket sweaters, striped watch bands, these caps, and a thousand kinds of socks. Seriously, the sock page is full blown geeked out menswear accessory porn. Be careful. They were actually kind enough to let me choose something from their site, and I went with the cricket cap as it's the thing I'm least likely to find in a thrift store.
Smart Turnout's goods are all British made of quality materials. If this hat is any indicator, it's pretty solid stuff. The cap is made of heavy British weather grade wool, with bullet proof construction. All of their goods are based on regimental or university designs. To be honest, I'm sometimes conflicted about stuff like that, but mostly I'm over it. I won't wear a uniform or emblem I didn't earn, but stripes have been all over the place for way too long now. Why miss out?
The stuff is not cheap, but it's very cool, and Christmas is coming. Ladies, the gifts for your man abound here. Gents, start dropping hints. Smart Turnout has been kind enough to offer readers of An Affordable Wardrobe 20% off their order through this Friday, November 12, and 10% throughout the following week by using discount code BROCHURE2010 at checkout. Hurry.
Seriously, the sock page...dangerous.
