Champion x Freak's Store Coaches Jacket

01. Quilted lining.
02. 100% polyester.

Words

Champion's Japanese line teamed up with Freak's Store to make this beautifully classic-looking coaches jacket. Available in two colours, the tonal patch and snaps, along with the shine of the polyester itself, make this jacket look like something all the extras would have worn while filming The French Connection. Which is a good thing in my opinion.

Available from Zozotown

Corona Beethoven Sweatshirt

—01. Also available as a T-shirt, with or without a pocket.

Words

While potentially lost on those that don't have an appreciation for this type of music, T-shirts and sweatshirts featuring classical composers' visages are a vintage trend that's been acknowledged by Corona this season. Printed on US-made Champion staples, the Beethoven sweat is my choice but if you're more of a Bach fan, there's several options for you too.

Champion Reverse Weave Pullover Hooded Sweatshirt

01

Image

—01. Made in USA.

Words

As vintage versions have been a cult item in Japan for a long time, there are a number of Japanese shops that offer Champion's nearly impossible to find American-made Reverse Weave hooded sweatshirt. It's undoubtedly one of the best and most timeless examples of the style, while the 'C' on the sleeve is a tasteful piece of branding that never loses its appeal.

Todd Snyder + Champion Basic Sweatshort

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

Whether you're using them actively, as an alternative to smarter options, or just around the house, a pair of sweatshorts can't be bad. Well, maybe they can, but this simple heather charcoal pair from the Todd Snyder + Champion line are a good length and modestly detailed, making them very wearable indeed.

Champion by Todd Snyder Short Sleeve Sweatshirt

Image

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

The Champion by Todd Snyder collection has produced some nice vintage-inspired pieces over the last couple of seasons and also helped to further the legacy of one of the most well respected sportswear makers. This is my favourite of all of their sweatshirts influenced by gym wear of the past, and it might be just the right short-sleeved option I've been searching high and low for.

Words

As classic as they come, these reverse weave sweatshirts from Champion, available in navy and grey, feature ribbed side panels, 100% loopback cotton and the iconic 'C' logo. While the garment itself isn't anything new, they are now available from our favourite shop in Manchester.

Champion Knit Crew Neck Shirts

—01-04. Navy and Heather Grey.

Words

Pretty much the most appealing thing I've seen online for a minute. It could be because it's cold now, or perhaps it's the iconic C badge on the sleeve, or even that the waffle pattern reminds me of two of America's greatest inventions: Vans footwear and brunch. Whatever the reason, both colourways would make for an easy and regular addition to anyone's winter wardrobe.

Champion Short Sleeve Sweatshirt

01. Reverse Weave.
02. Made in USA.

Words

While I know several advocates of this particular look, I've never actually tried a short sleeve sweater for myself. The only examples of this type of garment I've seen in the flesh have been vintage, and none have ever been close enough to the right fit and size for me to try them on. These new arrivals at Silver & Gold, from the Japanese licensed Champion brand, are pretty tempting though, and they look to be a nice item to pick up for the current in-between season we're experiencing here in New York.
