Champion by Todd Snyder Short Sleeve Sweatshirt

01

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.

—01. Navy.
—02. Grey.

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.

Oshman's in Japan have one of the best selections of Champion goods. Among the wide range, they have an offering of made in USA goods, which include these 3/4 sleeve t-shirts. The cotton shirts are great for layering and add a bit of warmth in the fall.

Champion at Nanamica

—01. The classic 'C'.
—02. School cardigan.

Words

There's something about that little red, white and blue 'C' that I love. As soon as I see it, especially above a cuff or on a sleeve, it somehow makes the garment that bit more special. I'm not sure why, but like any form of good branding it works and personal sentiment always overrides explanation; for me at least.

The Real McCoy's x Champion

—01. Made in USA; available in white and grey.

Words

Simple and plain, at least at first glance. I now know from experience that making something really good, that's seemingly simple and straight forward, is not really that easy. The Real McCoy's have mastered it however, and whether they have a difficult time or not, the end product is always incredible. Whether it's their own grey sweatshirts, the watch caps or these Champion t-shirts, I find myself continually impressed with what appear to be very unimpressive items. These heavy weight loopwheeled Champion tees are made in the USA, feel amazing and fit great.

Champion USA, Japan

—01. Made in USA.

Words

Champion is one of those classically heralded brands that used to make some of the best stuff around. Well, they actually still do, in the USA, and it's available in Japan. After just receiving our Real McCoy's fall order and seeing the beautiful t-shirts they've made, I wanted to try to find more. While only exploring their website for a few minutes, there seemed to be a great variety of reverse weave, made in the USA sweats, plain and printed. One item I'm always quite fond of in the early fall is a football t-shirt and these Champion versions are just about perfect. Great colours, rich tones and classic as can be.
