Has anyone else been watching Wimbledon? Well, if you’re British, of course you have! Usually, the spectacle of people hitting balls at each other leaves me cold but I’ve really got into it this year. Is it the display of skill? The prospect of an actual British champion? Yes and yes, but there’s also one other thing that’s luring me in….the Wimbledon umpires jackets. Have you seen them? Ooooh! They are works of art, things of beauty, and with all things that remain elusive, I want one.
They are made by Ralph Lauren and the ones I have seen for sale (on eBay) are considerably out of my price range, but here is a selection of sporting blazers available on the interweb – ranging from the outright expensive to credit crunch affordable. Enjoy!
