Not yet, they're launching the first collection next summer.

Within the first collection is a very special collaboration with John Lofgren Japan. A seasoned veteran of vintage sportswear, Lofgren himself is held in the highest regard by fellow collectors and his Lofgren brand is renown Worldwide for its beautiful garments of uncompromising quality and attention to detail. Made in Japan to the highest specification on original 1940s American hanging looms, the Russell Athletic by John Lofgren line represents the top tier of the Archive project.

For a looser fit, Id size up. Not that I will actually be able to afford any of the pieces wink

Re: Sportswear

That shawl "1920s coach jacket" looks interesting. The fabric maybe makes it look a bit too anachronistic though.

I've been after a shawl bomber-type jacket after seeing Waterhouse sporting a mighty fine olive one here:

I'm thinking it might be from a new designer/brand. Anybody have any inkling?

Spot-on, woolster! Hopefully something similar will come about in the next few months.

Hoping that the dehen 1920 brand starts up again too

Re: Sportswear

It's a shame they don't still make the grey sweatshirts like they used to. When they were designed for purpose rather than for long armed hipsters.

No serious sportsman would wear t-shirts or sweatshirts like those ones.

They're naff, the American equivalent of shellsuits.

Re: Sportswear

You're absolutely right Bish! Juvenile and pathetic. You'd barely attract a single racial group of women with these duds. Let alone the numerous hordes of multi-coloured woman you might do wearing a pair of pakeman catto and parker jeans.

Re: Sportswear

Its sportswear for the streets, of course you wouldn't wear it if you were training for a sport. (Being that tight it wouldn't last 5 minutes.) Apart from the cap, which I would have worn for cricket training when I played. Quite nice.

The rest of it is wank.

^ I find that stylish women, in general, like their men to be well dressed and clean shaven. That rubbish might go down well in Croydon or Romford but not in Kensington or Chelsea.

For once we agree on something. Sort of.


These will be items of clothing for vintage sportswear fetishists. I don't want them. They will be way out of my price range and not fit for purpose because of that.

The purpose would be lounging about, not doing sports (as modern sports equipment is obviously better).

T shirts serve a purpose and caps serve a purpose....  sweatshirts too. Even hoodies are good for something! 

But, for the money, I'd rather happen across some throw away vintage and not fetishise them too much.



I also think they should have opted for a more modern style of cap. The 40's looking one is ugly. Much better caps* out there.

I have a mate in the states sending me over a 60s reissue Oakland As cap and an early 70s Raiders cap. Not expensive,  not obviously 'retro' but cool.




*caps are cool. They do a job.

Plus he's really just wearing an updated version of an American sports wear/work wear look.

Baseball jacket
Chambray shirt
Watch cap
Indigo denim.

Re: Sportswear

Re: The Russell Athletic Archive - If you don't like them that's more than fine, but I don't really get the accusations of naffness and wankness nor the comparison to shell suits. Not having seen any of the actual garments yet, I would still hazard a guess that these will be extremely accurate and very high quality made-in-japan-replicas of select pieces of vintage American sportswear. Not much different from what the likes of Buzz Rickshaw and LVC are doing, except that they are unlikely to fuck up the designs like Levi's with some of their repros. Liam's right of course in that these will be items of clothing for vintage sportswear fetishists, but what's wrong with that? We're all fetishists here anyway, no?

I'm very happy with my Velva Sheen. A nice fit, good quality, and not too expensive for a made in US sweat when bought in the sales. My only gripe is the somewhat too loose neckline.

Absolutely! I understand the obsession with this stuff just as I understand the obsession with denim that a lot of people have.  Or shoos!

Writing off another style obsession because it isn't your particular style obsession is the only naff thing in this thread.
