A funny distressed style Genuine Rooinek design created for all the British who have spent time in South Africa and can relate to being called a Rooinek in Afrikaans.
Rooinek in the Afrikaans language is a combination of two words, rooi which is red and nek which is neck, thus redneck. It’s quite possibly a reference to the fact that Englishmen, being new to Africa, wore inadequate headgear and succumbed to sunburn more easily than the Afrikaners. Another theory is that historically, the British army wore red tunics with red collars as part of their uniform.
