Emancipation Day: Cup Match Day 1

Gibbons Company wishes you a Happy Cup Match!

Cup Match was initially introduced after the abolition of slavery in Bermuda. Men from Somerset and St. George’s met in friendly rivalry and held celebrations of Emancipation by holding annual picnics to mark the anniversary of the abolition of slavery.

One of the highlights from the picnics was a friendly cricket match played between lodges from the east and west ends of the island. In 1901, during a cricket match between two major Friendly Societies, an agreement was made to play for an annual trophy. Members of the Friendly Societies and Lodges raised funds and in 1902 a silver cup that was played for annually was introduced. Cup Match was officially born.

In 1947 two official national public holidays were introduced and held annually on the Thursday and Friday closest to 1 August. The first holiday, Cup Match, was renamed Emancipation Day in 1999 and continued the tradition of remembering the end of slavery.

Your Cup Match Survival Guide

Cup Match

If you are a visitor reading this blog this week, know that Cup Match is a two-day public holiday that continues into the weekend and is very unique to our special island. We enjoy camping, boating, swimming and most importantly cricket.

As a local or resident you know that every year, before the start of the Cup Match holiday, rival fans can be seen donning their team’s colours – red and navy for Somerset, light blue and dark blue for St. George’s – in preparation for the big event. As tradition dictates, the venue for the game changes yearly as each side takes a turn in hosting Cup Match; this year the honour falls to St. George’s.

Over the holiday it may prove a challenge to obtaining any essentials you may need on the day except for maybe convenience stores and gas stations, and restaurants. So be sure you stock up on your last minute beauty and fashion accessories, as tomorrow is the last day to shop!

At Gibbons Company we have everything you need to survive the Cup Match holiday.

1.  Sun protection shades, aka sunglasses.

Shades are “the” summer fashion accessory!

Sunglasses are “the” summer fashion accessory. Who doesn’t want to look cool and mysterious in a dark, funky pair of shades (Bermudian term for sunglasses).

Large "goggle-types" shades are my favourite!

Large “goggle-types” shades are my favourite!

These shades are a pair of my old favourites and maybe not as trendy and funky as some of the styles offered in Bermuda. Trends show that consumers like you are interested in a wide variety of frame shapes and colours, lens tints, with or without adornments and a range of price points.

If you aren’t quite sure you can commit to one set pair of sunglasses, we recommend buying a few pairs of inexpensive shades that you can swap out for different looks. One of my favourite pastimes is buying multiple pairs of inexpensive black, brown and tortoise shell shades, along with trying on styles that I wouldn’t normally wear.

 

Experts suggest buying shades that suit the shape of your face. As a shades junkie, I tend to stick to the basic colours and frames, but when it comes to the size of the lenses, I have a bad habit of wearing shades that are too large for my face. See below.

These black shades are too big for my face, but I wear them anyway!

If you are more of a traditionalist when it comes to your sunglasses, maybe Toms sunglasses styles (seen below) will suit you. You can find Tom’s Men’s sunglasses at Gibbons Company.

Tom’s men’s eyewear are available in a range of lens tints and can be found in the Men’s department at Gibbons Company.

Gibbons Company also offers women’s summer sunglasses in a range of price points and can be found in the Juniors and Accessories departments.

Remember your sunglasses should be functional, cool looking and provide protection from the sun’s rays. If your sunglasses add to your fashion look that is an added bonus!

Tell us about your sunglasses style. What colours and shapes do you like?
