Classic Styles: The Racing Coleridge Mock Crew Neck with Button Detail.

Many Retro moons ago, Madcap England introduced a unique Mod garment - The Racing Coleridge.

A new play on the traditional crew neck (Attack & Action) racing jumpers that were the two pioneering garments of the Madcap England brand. Since it's inception in the traditional black/gold//red colour way, the jumper has become something of a hall of famer and a gem in the Madcap archives.

Enduring and ever stylish, the later addition of Navy/Red/White was an effort to compliment traditional Mod Target colours, a combination that always proves popular.

A classic Vintage mock turtle neck pullover that features striking Retro Sixties racing stripes to the right side. A cool combination of Breton buttons to the shoulder cleverly compliment the stripes. Finished with subtle sleeve script branding, ribbed hem and cuffs.

Roue Mod Cycling Top by Madcap England

A move on this season from the classic Madcap Vitesse Cycling top, brings us new style, Roue. Based on the same block as The Vitesse, Roue features a unique mod inspired dogtooth print pattern to the front panel.

Roue has plain black sleeves and reverse. Retro ribbed stripe cuffs. Indie style ribbed funnel zip neck. Slim fit for that essential Mod look. Madcap England signature embroidery to sleeve.

In the Sixties, the King of Carnaby Street, John Stephen was interviewed and asked what the 'Well Dressed Mods' would be wearing that weekend. He replied they would probably be in a pair of hipster slacks, in either white or blue, and a cycling shirt with zip up to 'here' and stripes down 'there'. John Stephen was talking about a weekend in the heyday of the Sixties, but we think he could have easily been talking about this weekend! So pull on your blue or white Hipster Flared Jeans and get your Madcap England Cycling top on to join the well dressed Mods this weekend!

Cycling tops have become a style Madcap England is well know for, from the plain Gear Cycling Tops, to retro styled Hi Wheel editions. Roue fits in at the top of that range for Summer 2013.  Don't forget to check out his brother Roue style in Brown/Ecru and featuring a zig-zag pattern to the front.
