You might be the 6th man but you’ll be style MVP with Jelado‘s 6th Man Sweatshirt, back by popular demand. Featuring pre-cut sleeves, these sweats mimic the DIY effortless steez of old school athletes who did what they had to, to be comfortable in their sport. In this case, cutting the sleeves as to not obstruct jump shots and lay-ups.
Based on the single ‘V’ gusset sweatshirts prevalent in the 1950s and 1960s, these sweats are finished with a tag paying homage to AG Spalding, an early dominator in sportswear manufacturing. Made on vintage hanging knitting machines in Wakayama, Japan, these sweatshirts are as close you can get to an original sweat from the period they’re referencing and therefore become collectors’ items in themselves, blowing the phrase novelty way out of the atmosphere.
So take a chance without fouling out with a cotton sweat that separates itself from the rest of the conference with slam-dunk construction and a trick-play design to impress the crowd.
