#FreshStyleFits: Fall ’16 Style Guide by Brandon Clay – August 4, 2016
By: Brandon Clay @PSBPopCulture
I remember my man Jermale Wilkerson with a closet full of jerseys back in the day when everyone was rocking the Mitchell and Ness jerseys two or three sizes too big. I didn’t get around to wearing them at that moment but they’re back in style now.
This Fabolous line from the hit “Can’t Let You Go” in 2002 still rings in my ear to this day: “There’s gonna be a clip tossed if I go back with stains from her lip gloss on my throwback.”
The difference is this time around, the trend is to actually buy jerseys that fit. For me, I’m wearing a 44 (Large) in the authentic brand Mitchell and Ness. I’m a hometown sports guy so the Hank Aaron, Deion Sanders and Dominique Wilkins were all must haves. I’ve also grabbed Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson and Larry Bird jerseys amongst others.
For now, I am only wearing the jerseys of retired pro athletes or the college / high school throwback versions of people currently playing professionally. Nike made a nice set of college throwbacks for some of the top football players including A.J. Green (UGA) and Peyton Manning (Tennessee). Living in the heart of SEC country, you’ll see both of those on my back before the fall comes and goes.
Here is the Hank Aaron jersey with the matching Braves New Era Cap from Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash in June:
