Its that time of the year again.
The cold weather has indubitably reared its ugly head, thats a fact, and no-one really knows what to wear or how many layers is enough. You dont want to feel too cold outside but also not to over-heat on public transport, right? I know your story. We’ve all been there.
The Bobble hat has become one of my go-to fashion pieces, made the more popular by Footballers, worn during training sessions, celebrities like Idris Elba and even royalty, like the Duke Of Cambridge.
Menswear brands have re-invented the Bobble hat into a something males are no longer afraid to wear. In the early 21st century they were considered popular only with geeks and nerds. A surprise rise in popularity, driven initially by the Geek-Chic trend saw them become a fashionable and, with a real fur bobble, luxury designer item.
In the late 20th century, in the United Kingdom they (like the anorak) were associated with utilitarian unfashionability or with older football supporters, as they had been popular in club colours during the 1960s and 1970s. Along with the pin-on rosette and the football scarf, the bobble hat was seen as traditional or old-fashioned British working-class football regalia.
We certainly recommend you purchase one during the coming winter months. They’re not only fashionable, but they’re eye-catching, insulating and they also save you the time from doing your hair.
