Nostalgia is a powerful feeling. The connection we get about the past when comparing it to the present means we might not see ourselves there but embrace the way things were nevertheless. Our influences draw heavily on the subcultures of the 80s and 90s, which is why we made vintage-inspired sweatshirts.
As fashion trends evolve, many staple pieces stay the same. But they change with the times. Whereas a sweatshirt or hoodie designed today is clean-cut and has a futuristic or complex graphic, the vintage age of these pieces were arguably simplistic. The patterns followed a similar square design with text at the top and a print underneath. What might have seemed basic at first glance became iconic, recognized as a push away from modernity and a nod to the past.
The fit of vintage-inspired sweatshirts is also different. They tend to be wider in the arms and torso, eluding to that oversized silhouette captured in old photographs and movies. These distinct features are perfect for creating a look, or a mood, that embraces the past while staying in the present.
Art of previous generations really makes our collective of designers feel something. Their experiences, thoughts, and feelings drive their creativity to create inspired pieces. While they acknowledge the richness of vintage apparel, the graphics made still weave originality. The peace sign, a centred logo, clip art, and text superimposed on a graphic scene are all present.
Our color choices are also evocative of vintage-inspired sweatshirts. No neon or over-the-top hues here, just muted tones and plenty of neutrals to complement your look. Our limited runs mean our pieces won’t stick around forever, which is very vintage of us. Grab ‘em while we got ‘em.
Whether you feel a strong connection to the past or simply yearn for a simpler time, our vintage-inspired sweatshirts are made to transport your aesthetic to an iconic time. Take stock of the fit, and consider pairing it with our streetwear joggers and sweatpants for the ultimate throwback.
