Slide into something a little more comfortable with Champion’s IPO Slide. No matter your style, Champion has a look for you. Since 1919, they’ve been producing quality athletic wear for all genders. This includes sweatshirts, hoodies, and warm-ups for the fall and winter (don’t forget the beanies!), as well as t-shirts, athletic shorts, and hats for the summer time! From classic styles to modern designs and patterns, Champion’s “C” logo has become a fashion statement on its own. Originally known as the “Knickerbocker Knitting Company,” Abe and Bill Feinbloom founded what would later become Champion in New York state. Over the following decade, they built up a reputation by providing college athletes with high-quality sporting apparel. Subsequently, the brothers changed the company’s name to “Champion Knitting Mills” in the 1930s to accurately reflect who they outfit, champions. Their heritage in sport is rich, but perhaps their finest moments came while outfitting USA basketball. Champion created some of the most recognizable athletic jerseys in history for the 1992 “Dream Team,” 1996 “Dream Team 2,” and the 2000 Men’s Basketball Olympic squad. Superstars like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Shaq, Charles Barkley, and David Robinson were seen around the world wearing Champion’s trademark ‘C’ logo. The jerseys of said teams are now revered as some of the best jerseys, ever. Thrift store hunters and vintage fans clamor for these fantastic jerseys of years past on the secondary/ vintage markets. With today’s fashion gravitating towards the retro ‘90s era, Champion has enjoyed a solid resurgence with the youth of the world; they’ve experimented with patterned branding and bold colors to cater to their consumers. Additionally, Champion often works in collaboration with major streetwear heavyweights like Supreme, Bape, UNDEFEATED, and Stussy, resulting in some insanely sick collections.
