Re: Sportswear

Just to show that I'm open to new things ... I got this the other day from London vintage shop Beyond Retro. Its a Champion navy blue hoody and I thought the high school Lacrosse logo was a bit different. To be honest I'll probably only wear it for loafing about at home, but I thought I'd share it for the sportswear lovers here.

Archbishop Stepinac High School is only about a half-hour drive from me in NY... Champion stuff is always good quality even if they aren't the Champion of old, nice find! I have a weakness for random logos, too...

Having read a bit about Archbishop Stepinac, I probably will stick to wearing it inside the house!

it will be fine for that, but the important thing is that you stretched your mind to give hoodies a try, and when the positive reviews come in on the domestic front you'll be back for more hoodies Woof .....

as some wise people told me several months ago, in a slightly different context, claim it for the forces of good

Re: Sportswear

I last wore a Hoodie in the '70s but this year I bought another one and I love it. In the UK the Hoodie did have chav connotations but I think it is now reconnecting with sportswear. I'm old enough not to care and I'm on the lookout for another one. nice find Woof.

I won't be hugging you in a hurry Woof. I reckon it is you that has been buying up all the Leith products I was planning to buy when I am back in The UK next week. They don't have any t shirts or madras shirts in my size.

Re: Sportswear

When it comes to acually doing sport, I'm a huge fan of the brands Tracksmith and Iffley Road. They combine modern materials with a classic look.

Re: Sportswear

/\  was looking at Tracksmith for a while, liked their designs, by the time I was ready to try something they had switched their manufacturing and were no longer making their stuff in the USA so I lost interest but I liked the look of their stuff.

Re: Sportswear

/\  good work Leer, as a Dodgers fan I really dig the royal blue cap, the Dartmouth cap has a very vintage look, well done, thanks for the post and keep 'em coming!  I only have one Ebbets Field cap, it was a gift, it also has my initials on it in case I forget my name, I want a vintage-style "Y" cap from the same series as your Dartmouth cap .......

Re: Sportswear

Shorts have recently been mentioned on the Question of Sneakers thread .....

I constantly wear made-in-USA J. Press walk shorts in poplin and also cotton twill, as well as Adidas 9-inch inseam sports shorts, Champion cotton shorts with pockets, Sportif Hatteras boating shorts, Birdwells for the beach/pool, and there are also some old Brooks Brothers, Patagonia, Gramicci, and a couple of other cotton surf jams I've forever, couple of J. Press madras ..... sincerely missed are an old pair of thick navy linen walk shorts from Bermuda and a pair of cotton Hawaiian aloha jams in light red and white with cotton rope string ....

They're pretty shredded now but I saved them for the archives, same as a mighty pair of J. Press khakis, the cuts are so good they should be saved.

Also a pair of longish seersucker shorts from Japan, more traditional Japanese than Ametora but number one on my favorites list at the moment, want more, but the Adidas are easier to get, just got a nice pair with scalloped hem in a lighter than navy blue, just keeping them in reserve for now .....

next up might be a few more cotton Champions and maybe a pair of lax shorts to trash, I'm trying to not wear out the harder-to-find great Press poplins, their cut as I've said before is a proper tapered short trousers cut, not simply a regular trousers cut that's been shortened at the knee .....
