The Nomads cap is a Harlequin design with the club three colours. Over the years the colour interpretation of Cambridge Blue and Old Gold has varied and so has the cap. A couple of members find the design 'over the top' and too 'jazz hat' for them but most members wear the distinctive cap with pride.
* Ties do not seem to be the cool item they once perhaps were and ours was/isvery discreet. We have some new dazzling designs up our collars and these will be revealed to you in due course
* Historically the club colours have always been stated as Oxford Blue, Cambridge Blue and Old Gold since the original 17 members were either undergraduates at Oxford or Cambridge orArchitects and thus members of the RIBA. However as long as anyone can remember the club had used the much lighter Gold in its colours presumably on aesthetic grounds but for the cap some have recently been produced with the deeper Old Gold.. The above has been the received wisdom for decades.However the original club Minutes book reveals that the current colours were adopted in 1910. * Shirts. We have produced shirts for tours but not as a generalrule. However if there is demand we will reconsider this as it does add to a cohesive club identity.
