Napoli Jumper (Pre-Order)
I know, I will leave you alone for a minute to let all that sink in. Ready? Then I shall begin.
Our Napoli jumper the first instalment in our ‘jumpers for goalposts’ collection, which celebrates everything that is wool and football-related. We kick-off with our Neapolitan inspired sweater which is inspired by a jumper I saw worn by an Ultra circa 1989 in a documentary I watched. At first I thought it was a NafNaf pullover, but after doing some digging, it was most definitely a home-made one.
What is striking about the jumper is the Italian flag cuffs, hem and neck, the massive N in the middle and most interestingly of all, the azure colour. I imagine this was done to match the training kits of Napoli at the time, or it could just be that they liked the colour, whatever it was, I think it looks ace.
The jumper itself comes with a slightly higher new than a normal crew neck jumper, which pays homage to the cycling jerseys of the ’50s. It comes with a raglan sleeve and a nice, standard fit. The size chart is a guide, but we would recommend going for your normal size.
The sweater is made in the UK from 100% British wool, so to say that this jumper is warm may be selling it short a little. I haven’t really got much else to say other than you should definitely bought one as I imagine you’ll regret it if you don’t.
FORZA NAPOLI SEMPRE.
