From the heritage research and trainerspotter geniuses of Russ Gater and Daniel Savory, the Russell Athletic Archive collection draws inspiration from original vintage designs. Inventors of the T-Shirt as we know it, founded in 1902 by Benjamin Russell, this is the World’s oldest sports manufacturer. Contracted to the U.S Military during WWII, makers of professional sports team uniforms in the post-war period and the only brand to supply to all 8 Ivy League colleges – most certainly a heritage to make noise about.
Aside from all the historical facts which come with the brand, it is a truly an impressive product. the quality of the heavy fabrics, the typeface on the label, the chunky lettering of sewn on patches sets this Russell Athletic Archive collection apart from the rest.
