Wales Feathers 1905 Red Sweatshirt Our newest edition to our mens Casual Wear range is our best yet! Crafted from 100% cotton, this soft to touch sweatshirt is a classic statement piece for your seasonal wardrobe. To add our vintage touch, we have taken inspiration from the old Wales rugby Prince of Wales Feathers badge worn by the team iuring the New Zealand All Blacks Tour in 1905.In 1905, the New Zealand All Blacks became the first of the Southern Hemisphere national teams to visit the British Isles on their rugby tour. The All blacks were on a winning streak, having already defeated England, Scotland and Ireand, and they were to play Wales next at their home grounds, Cardiff Arms Park, where they had not been defeated since 1899. Before the match, the All Blacks performed their well known starting ritual, the Haka, to which the Welsh crowd responded with the Welsh national anthem. This was the first time a national anthem had been sung before a sporting fixture. Wales won the match 3-0, being the only loss for the All Blacks on their 35-match tour.
