Champion Reverse Weave Collection

Champion Reverse Weave

Japan always get the best stuff, FACT! There are too many brands out there that dont sell or even ship to our shores. Saying that one of my favourite US heritage brands, Champion have seen sense and at the back end of last year they re-released their legendary Reverse Weave  Collection of sweats, hoodies & joggers. For the uninitiated this weaving method ensures the garments avoid vertical shrinkage, so all that heavyweight fleecy cotton goodness won’t change shape any time soon.  Two colours Grey Marl & Navy Blue, unfortunately not in the amazing colours available in Japan buy hey its a start and they are available on your door step.

Human Made Campus Sweat


Plain is best, but every once in a while a sweatshirt like this catches the eye. It will usually feature a collegiate print and a small C above the cuff, but this is something a bit more special. The large applique letters – front and back – won’t be to everyone’s liking, nor is the price particularly realistic for the vast majority of people but that doesn’t stop it from being a great sweatshirt though.
