Whilst considered just a sporting goods manufacturer in the States, Champion has drawn the interest of several highly regarded Japanese labels over the years which has resulted in collaborations with companies such as A Bathing Ape, NEIGHBORHOOD and eYe COMME des GARCONS JUNYA WATANABE MAN. For this most recent venture, the classic Champion hooded sweat pullover has been selected. Don’t confuse this with one of your off-the-rail Champion tops though. A high-grade Japanese cotton has been used and stitched using a reverse weave technique, giving an ultra soft and lightweight feel to the garment. Also, being produced in limited numbers has allowed for a much more refined and detailed finish. A washed-effect eYe logo has been emblazoned on the front with matching stitching that contrasts nicely against the bold burgundy and emerald colorways. Finally, the iconic Champion tag appears in its rightful place at the base of the sleeve.
