Wotherspoon has been a fan of vintage adidas track apparel for nearly 16 years when the baggy, oversized jacket aesthetic started to trend, and because of his relationship with this element of the brand is so deeply rooted, it was easy for him to make his selections. “100 jackets does sound like a lot but in comparison to the amount of secondhand clothes that are currently available and ready to be upcycled, 100 was easy for me to select”, he says. “I tried to be as little picky as possible, since the point is to give as many a second life, I really tried to leave little behind.”
If you’re attending the Coachella this weekend (April 15-17, 2022), keep your eyes peeled for the vintage connoisseur because you might walk away with a free jacket.
