Well, it’s that time of year again lads and the World Cup is well under way. So far, we’ve seen England work their way to almost the quarter finals and tonights game will let us know what’s in store for us for the rest of the World Cup! Bring it home boys!
Do most of you turn it off once England are out or are you in it for the long hall? After all, it’s only once every 4 years so why not treat yourself to something fab this World Cup, we have sales on, giveaways happening and competitions running all throughout, so stay tuned!
For years, you footy fans have been able to get that footballer look with replica t-shirts and shorts, but this World Cup it’s a little different! Footy fans are rushing to buy replicas of Gareth Southgate’s England waistcoat!
Marks & Spencer, which has been the official suit supplier to the England team since 2007, said demand for waistcoats has risen 35% thanks to the “Gareth Southgate effect”. Well, never mind the Gareth Southgate effect, you want the Hotspur 1364 effect and we can give you something that no-one else has, certainly not thousands of other England fans!
A replica Southgate suit (Waistcoat & Trousers) will set you back £265 from some of the larger companies, whereas here at Hotspur 1364 you can get a full suit (Jacket, Waistcoat and Trousers) starting from £135, like this Rambo in Navy! WOW!
The trend for wearing more formal wear has came bounding out of nowhere and has been described as the “reverse casualisation”, are you guys loving it or hating it? We’re right on board and think you all look awesome in your tweeds and bold waistcoat/chino combos!
The popularity of Gareth Southgate’s waistcoat has made his reputation boom as one of the more fashionable managers at the World Cup this year! But let’s not forget lads, he certainly hasn’t been reading our Thursday Tailoring Tip posts on Facebook, has he?
The bottom button on a waistcoat is traditionally left undone because back in the day when monarchs were unable to fasten them (too much beer we think!) then they would just leave them open and nowadays it’s caught on! Back to football, Southgate has been seen with his buttoned up, strike 1!
Despite this faux pas, we know you won’t follow suit and get it wrong too. We have jackets, trousers and waistcoats available in over 20 styles, you won’t find that anywhere else, especially on your doorstep so make sure you get yourself down to Hotspur 1364 in Alnwick, Northumberland and have a browse or check out our website here.
That’s all for now, stay tuned!
