Goalkeeper Jumpers (PRE-ORDER)
Our goalkeeper jumpers have been in the works for a long time, simply because we wanted to get them right. The jumper as worn by the ‘keeper was often dyed version of Navy-issued submariner sweaters. The colours needed to differ from the outfield players so as to let the referee know who could and couldn’t handle the ball. The jumpers needed to be rugged and warm for when the British winters hit and the person in goal was lucky enough not to be saving shots on goal.
Here we release our homage to the most misunderstood position in the great game. Our jumpers are made in the UK, using British wool, manufactured to the exact same standards as the original sweaters. Drop shoulder, high hem rib, roll back cuffs, reinforced armpits and of course the roll neck. This will keep you warm in the winter and stylish in the pub and should you wish to show off your prowess between the sticks, then at least you’ll look good.
The jumpers come in for colours, the traditional Banks Yellow which is a mid-toned yellow like the originals, rather than crazy bright. Field Green which is the colours of a football pitch. Crossley Cream which is an off-white and Buffon Blue, which is a navy blue. The jumpers fit on the slightly snug size, but by no means tailored and wool does shape to your body, so keep this in mind when looking at the size guide. The jumpers are made from 100% British wool and manufactured in the UK.
