Sosa Baseball Jersey - Black
Drop 8/10. The Sosa Jerseys. Limited edition. 80 units per colour.
These were first released in November 2013 as part of a capsule collection. The inspiration came from an LA trip and noticing people wearing baseball jerseys in a streetwear / casual context. From here, we wanted to put our own spin on a baseball jersey. The brand was growing in the US, so we felt it was essential to release a US sports-inspired garment.
We went to work and redesigned every element of the jersey. With embossed buttons saying "always thinking the opposite", the formidable red patch, Q.G.F.T.I.M. (quality goods for the independent mind) as well as the iconic LAID AMOUR on the front, meaning UGLY LOVE and 1.7.2. on the back, which stands for I.L.U.
We wanted to pack this with detail, and our customer loved it. The moment we released these back in the day they fired. You started seeing them everywhere. Constantly featured on Hypebeast. Worn by influences, rappers, and the most notable being G-Eazy. He ended up buying a few of each colour online after he saw the jerseys on Tumblr.
From there, the jersey got massive exposure and hit the tipping point since the jersey was now exposed to 100s of 1000s of people. It sold out pretty quickly. Like a few of our other pieces, you see the original Sosa Jerseys popping up on Grailed.com from time to time, and you often see images of these circulating around Tumblr (if you still go on it).
This time around, we kept the same OG fabric, reproduced the formidable patches, and kept the same buttons. The only difference is we added the leather ten-year anniversary patch to the sleeve and a woven script label on the bottom hem, to keep it as close to the original as possible. Only 80 pieces of each colour have been made. This is sure to be a collector's item for many years to come
