First Look: Russell Athletic 2016 Winter Collection


All American vintage brand Russell Athletic, the original founders of the sweatshirt and hoodie have just released their 2016 Winter Collection in South Africa.

Russell Athletic became one of the largest suppliers of athletic team uniforms in Major League Baseball, NFL, college and high school sport programs through to little league, and hints of this can be seen in their Winter Range.


The men’s line comprises of sweatshirts, zip through hoodies, quilted baseball jackets, gilets, campus jackets and cuffed track pants in seasonal staples of black, grey and navy with a hint of maroon.




The ladies range is dominated by black, grey and leopard print in high necks, zip through hoodies and comfortable, well fitted cuffed tracksuit pants.




The rise of the ‘Athleisure’ market has seen the introduction of the double sided, soft finish SPORT FLEECE training jackets and pants, perfect for pre, post and during sporting activities. Promoting a healthy, athletic lifestyle, it’s no wonder Russell Athletic is a firm favourite of MC and KFM presenter Liezel van der Westhuizen and rugby player Cheslin Kolbe.

With over 100 years in the market, the latest range offers customers their renowned quality, durability and comfort that Benjamin Russell created in 1902 with a mere 10 sewing machines and 8 knitting machines.
