Keeping Cricket Whites White

Never was there a more quintessentially British summer sound the smack of leather against willow.

Cricket. A game, which takes five days to play and more often than not ends in a draw. A game which has found devotees, followers and lovers in all of the far-flung reaches of the old British Empire including Australia, New Zealand, West Indies, South Africa, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The exact origins of cricket are unknown, but is believed to date back to the 16th century, the name deriving from the Anglo-Saxon word cricc, meaning a shepherd's staff. It is thought that the first players were English shepherds, who used their criccs as bats and the wicket gate of the sheep pens as a target for the bowlers or pitchers.

The stark, white glare of cricket whites are as indicative of English summertime as Pimms and strawberries. The ensemble suggests that the great tradition of British sartorial eccentricity is alive and well because, after all, it’s a look that is entirely at odds with sporting criteria; a thick woollen jumper, long trousers, all of it in the most glacial-white of bright shades, just ripe for some robust smearing with grass and mud stains that are almost inevitable after a hard fought game. A rather odd choice for a sporting uniform we agree but at Jeeves we love a bit of British tradition.

There are tips a plenty on the best methods of removing these stains dare we say, the best method of all is simply “Jeeves”. Leave the chemicals and elbow grease to us. Your whites will be returned as good as new – any damage repaired – and ready to face another session of the ‘gentleman’s game’.
