Classic Style Football Bucket Hats
Fritidsklader football bucket hats are inspired by the indie music scene that exploded out of Manchester in the late 1980s.
If you saw it, you’ll remember. The year was 1989 , the Stone Roses live appearance on The Other Side Of Midnight, a late-night regional arts and music show on Granada TV hosted by the legendary Tony Wilson
It was a seminal moment for a generation. John Squire cut through the TV screen with those first 8 notes of Waterfall and everything changed. Madchester was born.
It was like nothing you’d ever heard before, far departed from the mundane ‘pop’ and the new romantic scene that it succeeded. It influenced the youth generation, music makers changed direction, it inspired bands to this day and baggy clothing was the new fashion.
Frontman Ian Brown donned in a yellow polo shirt, done up to the top button and a behatted Reni banging the sticks wearing a white bucket hat. At that moment, wearing a bucket hat became cool for a new generation.
Essential Terrace Fashion
By no means were bucket hats new, years prior, the American rap scene had embraced bucket hats and for some time they’d been the headgear of choice in other genres. In Britain, ‘Lad Culture’ was in full bloom and the crossover from musicians with working-class roots to football fans was an obvious transition.
For many a matchday fan, football bucket hats became essential terrace fashion.
