It’s patriotism gone mad on the high street!
Jack underwear- the patriotic spirit |
even extends to the bedroom!
Take high street clothes shop Topshop: in their shops there are currently over 23 Union Jack related products being sold! That’s everything from knitted jumpers, leggings, socks, sweatshirts, rucksacks, jackets, rights, bags, knickers, boxers, nail wraps- even insoles for your shoes!
It’s simply patriotism gone mad. The funny thing is, people are really getting into this ‘British and Proud’ trend.
But hey, it could be a good thing. Maybe the sheer success of this trend shows how much we, as a nation, are getting into the Olympic spirit and supporting team GB with pride?
Perhaps. And maybe this nationalism madness will last more than just a few months. But personally, I can’t see being much of a long-term craze.
I can only see this particular phase dying a very painful death within the next month or so. Most likely, as soon as the Olympics and Paralympics end, those Union Jack jumpers will be going straight
Oh and here’s me with my Special Edition Ryvita - clearly the trend extends to food as well!
Well now you know what I think of this whole Union Jack madness, I want to hear what you think! Maybe you own some British-themed jumpers or something similar, and you really like the trend- if so, comment below!
