The players were tough. The coaches were tougher.
The coaches were the ones who made the players tough.
They'd played the game themselves, years earlier, wearing leather helmets. Many of them regarded the recent introduction of the protective face mask with suspicion. They all agreed on a few simple rules:
No compliments on good plays.
Always practice in worst possible weather.
No water during practice. (Makes you weak.)
No you-know-what for 3 days before a game. (Makes you weak.) The coaches' view on life was simple and tough and it extended to the clothes they wore; this sweater is a fine example.
Looks like it was thought up by the guy who did the Navy watch cap, it's that simple. Heavyweight cotton jersey, the best, cut wide and big. Big non-shiny metal zipper. Soft ribbed neck, because you're turning your head all day to look up and down the field.
Cuffs and hem? Who needs them. Pockets? You've already got those, in your pants.
1950s Football-Coach sweater (No. 1314). The real thing, from the days when beer cans were made of steel and your sister didn't have more tattoos than you do.
Men's sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL
