Bidding Farewell To Champion X Todd Snyder
Posted by DRAY WALK
After some brilliantly iconic pieces, we’re sad to be saying goodbye to the almighty Champion X Todd Snyder 3-season-capsule collection. This is all in homage to the two real sportswear giants. We’re taking the time to look back at some of the best pieces from the last three seasons, and think about what might be still to come.

They definitely saved the best for last. Going for unparalleled classic vibes, it’s far from disappointing. From the SS17 collection we’re focusing on the White Pique T-Shirt, and the Short Sleeve Sweatshirt in Faded Red. By all means decide for yourself on your favourites, but there’s something in these two which we reckon embodies the Champion X Todd Snyder spirit. We're putting it down to faded colourways, and traditionally understated stripes.
In an ideal world, all our favourite brands would be able to combine Americana with sportswear as well as these two. As it stands, we're pretty happy with what these guys have done for the whole sportswear scene. Each piece is finished with a strong air of nostalgia around it, as well as using more traditional processes and methods. It all adds up to meaning the pieces are just that little bit nicer. It is all made in Canada, after all… Nice is what you expect.

Even looking at old season pieces, the Ringer Polo & Colourblock Henley are perfect examples of what we mean. That vintage American sportswear; it’s right on trend right now but you know it’s gonna continue to be timeless. What we’re saying is, this might just be your last chance to get your hands on pieces from this collection - we know you won’t regret it, so have a look while it’s still about!
After such success, we’re really excited to see what Champion collaboration might be next on the cards. We know the future’s definitely going to be bright, that’s a given. Us sports/casualwear heads can’t wait to see what’s around the corner, and we reckon we’re not the only ones...
Make sure you don't miss out on the last of this unforgettable collection, brand new for SS17!
