Between work, planning the wedding, and the fact that I live in Philly, I apparently missed that the Sox overhauled their team. It’s crazy how a year ago I’d have been glued to CSNNE and Felger and Mazz, waiting to hear what everyone had to say about all this, and right now I’m in Delco, PA in my Sox ‘04 shirt saying “hmm, Lester to the A’s. That’s cute.” In 2008 I went to a May game against the Royals with my buddy on a Monday night that turned into Lester’s no-hitter. Maybe he’ll do the same for the A’s this year and they’ll win it all.
This all-star jam of 165 basketball jerseys across time and space is a stunning survey of the sartorial side of swishing and dishing. Starting with the New York Celtics in 1921, this ballin’ breakdown boasts time-tested three-point threads from dapper dunkers throughout hoops history, including trey-cool fashion centerpieces like the ‘72 Nets, the ‘89 Magic, all manner of globe-trotting Harlemites, and even a selection of pop culture jerseys like the inimitable Tune Squad and Monstars from the 1996 documentary Space Jam. Also features the many custom tops of hip-hop, and vintage throwbacks that harken to a time of high-pulled shorts and socks.
Perfect for posting up on your wall, this is one dazzling documentation of fashion-forward designs that will never fade away. Boom shakalaka!
