We’ve just got some of them new Aquascutum caps in and they’re absolutely excellent. They're a classic baseball silhouette, embellished with the iconic club check print that's louder than Danny Dyer screaming 'YOU SLAAAAAG!' through a megaphone. As with anything Aquascutum, the quality is cracking and excels in all weather conditions (Aquascutum is Italian for 'water shield' you know.) This useless little piece of trivia brings me onto my first and only question in this review…
It is the age old question, and the litmus test for anything considered worthy in this world. "Can it do it on a wet and cold Tuesday night in Stoke?” The answer is, yes it can, it definitely can. It’s showerproof this cap. So it’s perfect if you want to keep the rain off of your head at the match or if you’re just in the market for a real high-end, luxury shower cap. It’s also equipped with a really sturdy peak that’s good for keeping the sun out of your eyes.
There’s a generously sized fastening strap on the rear to accommodate for lads like me who are members of the Fat Head Alliance, and the industrial strength metal clasp is very, very strong. So you can do it up real tight. It’s handy that, because it means it won’t fall off your head in a sea of flailing limbs when Harry Clifton slots home the 93rd minute winner against Lincoln City, at Wembley, in the League 2 Play-off Final in May. FISH! The strap can be worn either tucked back into the hat through a metal eyelet (boring) or just left sticking out for that proper authentic, scallywag aesthetic (mint.)
The versatility of Aquascutum clothing, makes it perfect for any occasion.The cap could be styled with a powder pink jumper tied around you shoulders and a glass of Pimms at The Henley Royal Regatta. Alternatively, the cap could be styled just as effectively with an 18 stone, balding, Millwall fan with his hands around your neck 45 minutes before kick off.
All in all, the cap is a first class product, a real triumph of stylish rainwear engineering, and should be snapped up immediately. You can do this right now if you fancy by clicking the handy link just here.
