Drakes super repp Regimental tie Cambridge Old Salopian
A lot of clothing has Military, University or Sportive roots, even ties... Or mainly ties?
That why we decided to bring you 20 different ties, launched in 5 drops, 4 series each.
Made in the highest quality "Super Repp" silk, in the way we like them best, untipped! This is unusual for this kind of tie, but looks much better and makes a more subtile tie. Anyway, it's our tie, so we can do whatever we want as long we respect the stripes!
And we do, we took a dive into history and you can enjoy our research!
Old Salopian football teams had existed since the earliest years of the game with regular matches against the School and informal Old Salopian Football Clubs at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities. However, it was the inauguration of the Arthur Dunn Cup which brought together the best players and the formation of a more organised club.
The Arthur Dunn Cup began in Season 1902-03 for the amateur public school old boys because professionalism had taken an increasing hold on the game and on the F.A. Cup in particular. In the first season, the Old Salopians reached the Final, playing two 2-2 draws with the Old Carthusians before the trophy was shared. The Morgan-Owen brothers were selected to play in a full international for Wales on the same day as the Final but declined the invitation as they wished to play for the Salopians.
Here you are!
