Wear Your Hometown on Your Sleeve

Published December 18, 2013

For the past two seasons, vintage-inspired jerseys have circulated the runways: sheer with “Parental Advisory” scrawled over the front at Alexander Wang’s S/S 2014 show; black with metal petal cut-outs at Christopher Kane; and, of course, the sheer “Bambi” sweatshirt, which made its infamous debut at Givenchy’s F/W 2013 show. We, however, have our eyes on this entirely customizable version by Hometown Jersey. Teaming up with a knitwear company that dates back almost 100 years, the U.S.-based label uses felt letters and raglan sleeves to achieve that vintage appeal, as well as to up the quality of what would be your average polyester jersey. The jersey can say anything that you desire, to make for a thoughtful gift for your loved one and is available online at hometownjersey.com.
