Neymar is great at football—sort of a human mixologist with the ball—but, god, he doesn’t help himself, sometimes.
Injured, stunned, his face as Rashford stole Champions League progress from Paris’ grasp was instantly iconic. You will have seen it about one hundred times in the past twenty four hours.

But what has been grossly overlooked, however, is that sweet cap. The simplicity of it, at odds with the buzz around it: just black with white type. Just do it.
It’s class, we’re big fans, and as summer approaches and caps go from affectation to necessity, as the sun looms large in the sky and its rays scorch your scalp with ever-increasing intensity (thanks to the cows and their farting and that), NikeLab’s black corduroy H86 hat is an instant hit, and for only £27.
Side note on corduroy, while we’ve got you here: the name probably doesn't come from the French cord du roy or Cord of the King, and is actually from a mix of cord and duroy, which was a coarse woollen cloth used in the 18th Century. And you know where the certain of the world's corduroy trade was, right? Yep: Manchester. The French still refer to corduroy as 'Manchester cloth'. Time is a flat circle and history is delicious.
Anyway, buy one of these (also available in white and navy) and you can be sad in one, too; only you’ll be on the bus to work, which is essentially the opposite of the Parc des Princes.
