In a market saturated with fashion collaborations, partnerships that make sense and products that reflect the distinctive qualities of both parties are few and far between. Bucking the trend, Gourmet recently teamed up with retro sportswear specialists Mitchell & Ness for a duo of Vintage Satin Jackets that stay close to home. Rivalries and all, the founders of the footwear label looked to their hometown teams — the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox — for baseball jackets that served as the foundation of the joint effort. The jacket body is constructed of 1980s era satin, while full-grain leopard printed suede arms — reminiscent of Gourmet’s similarly patterned footwear – and a fully-lined interior keep things timely and seasonal. Quantities will be limited to 12 per color and will be available on October 27 at Gourmet’s website.
